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.

Bottle 0,75 l. Very good aroma. It is spicy and also I can feel a little bit bitterness (but taste is not intrusive) followed by smooth aftertaste. Recommend.

PartyFowle (669) - - JUL 7, 2015
Always a classic. Pours from draft a crystal-clear, pale golden hue with a fluffy head of white. Aroma leads with a blend of apple, pear and soft banana; a swirl draws out bubblegum, honeydew, smoky alcohol, clove and cracked pepper. Alcohol comes through in the flavor more, lending a heat to underlying pear, dried lemon and almond. Medium-light body is like cotton. Finishes mostly dry, with a gently lingering green apple tartness.

This is an interesting beer that is strong and full of life. It is smooth and has a distinct aftertaste.

Bottle at home cold in a Hoegaarden snifter. Bright gold, bubbly, white head. Orangey peppery aroma. Spicy, earthy yeast, warm alcohol flavours. Medium bodied, lively, alcohol a bit too prominent for me.
