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.

750ml bottle best before November 2015. Peachy golden with two finger quickly vanishing lively white head. Aroma of sweet fruits and some growing malts. Sweet fruity flavor with some typical Belgian heast to it. OK palate and rather good with moulles marinér.

Bottle. Pours golden, absolutely packed with gelatinous floaters, and with a big creamy head receding to finger thickness. Aroma is Belgian yeast and wood, as well as kandi, spices and perfume. Medium body, with average carbonation. Flavour is Belgian yeast, wood, kandi, perfume, camphor and spices. Yeasty finish.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Served in a trappist glass. Beautiful! Golden with a big white head. Aroma is fruity (peaches, apricot, raspberry, mango), funky yeasty, honey, buscuit and mollasses... Awesome! Taste is also fruity, reminds me pears, apples, bananas and peaches, heavy yeasty flavour. No alcohol presence. Bitter, yeasty and kinda sour aftertaste. Warming and spicy mouthfeel. Great strong ale!
