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.

Gangstergafje (628) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2016
The beer has quite a nice look. The color of the beer is a beautiful golden yellow. Tie beer has a little trouble touch to it. On top of the beer a normal layer of white, slightly rough foam is formed. The foam doesn’t remain long. The smell of the beer is nice and quite complex. It has some banana and raisin yeast aromas. It’s the typical Belgian Ale aroma. There is also a fresh bitter and slightly sour smell of hops, like it’s also present in the Duvel Tripel Hop. This forms a nice contrast with the yeast. The yeast aroma could have been a bit stronger, compared to the hops. The same goes for the taste. The sweet yeast aromas and the bitter hops accompany each other perfectly, but the bitterness of the hops is just a bit to strong and brings the beer a bit out of balance. It’s a very nice beer, but there is room for improvement.

Sparf (218) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2016
Doftar tropiska frukter, bubbeltuggummi – dock ingen artificiell arom – samt kandisocker och svagt av örter, jäst och alkohol. Gul, klar vätska och ganska mycket skum som sjunker undan snabbt. En lätt smak, jästkomplex och med en tät sötma. Mer kraft än elegans. Kroppen är ganska tunn och brygden skummig. Eftersmaken har en trevlig beska och alkoholvärme.

Wojo21 (177) - Pelplin, POLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Aromat niezbyt intensywny, aczkolwiek przyjemny. Guma do żucia, ziołowość, zielone jabłko. Barwa złocista, zamglone, ładna piana, choć szybko opada. W smaku zbalansowane, drożdże, banany przyprawy. Goryczka niezbyt wysoka choć zalegająca. Dobrze pijalne, zdadziecko dobrze.

Goldgelb, klar mit weißem Schaum. Hefig, malzig, leicht süß, recht sprudelig. Ingwer und Pfeffernoten bringen eine leichte Schärfe.

darbeer75 (398) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Aroma: yeasty and fruity with slightly earthy undertones; Appearance: clear, golden straw pour with fluffy white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: smooth, fruity and yeasty; seems more like a tripel than a strong ale; Overall: very good; would buy again when looking for a solid Belgian.

WaddlingPlatypus (112) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Pale yellow, sparkling, with a bubble white head. Haylage and strawberry aroma, with a touch of elderflower. Peaches and elderflower are most prominent in the flavour, with a slight aspirin bitterness that follows. Very little aftertaste.

Fules (664) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2016
Hatalmas és nagyon tartós, hófehér habja van. Színe gyönyörű világos borostyán. Illata nagyon intenzív, fűszeres, borsos, kissé korianderes. Íze finom fűszeres, borsos - korianderes, robosztusan, de nem túl intenzíven kesernyés. A korty végén pici pezsgős hatás érezhető. Utóíze hosszan tartó keserűvel indít, enyhe torkot maró fűszeres mellékízzel, picike savanyúval és édessel. Robosztusan testes, nehéz sör. Az alkohol jól el van rejtve, de azért érezni hogy erős sör.
