COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle Conditioned.
Launched on December 26th 1989 @ 9% abv. Abv reduced from 9% to 8.5% in 2003.
The particular character and the unique taste of "Delirium Tremens" result from the use of three different kinds of yeast. Its very original packing, which resembles cologne ceramics, and the colourful label contribute to its success.
In 1997, Stuart A. Kallen nominated Delirium Tremens as "best beer in the world". A gold medal during the "world beer championships" in Chicago (1998) confirmed that worldwide recognition.

330 np bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a foamy, two finger, white head. Carbonation streaming from the center of the tulip glass. Aroma has big notes of bubblegum, candy sugar, clove/spice, and slight citrus. Taste is balanced. Bubble gum, Belgian yeast, spice, citrus, and a short ending. Medium body with a high, effervescent carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a really nice beer. Solid spice notes with candy sugar, yeast, and and citrus.
