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.

SinH4 (1083) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2015
Pale yellow color with white head. Aroma is overripe bananas, candied sugar, belgian stereotypes on steroids. Taste is sweet, boozy, more bananas. Not even too much carbonation. Okay.

jamaty (1242) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Pálida media, algo turbia. Espuma de 3 dedos muy suave. Bastante carbónica. Aroma a malta y hierbas, algo ácido también. En boca predomina el dulce, aunque deja un sabor final seco y amargo, algo alcohólico (nada para los 8,5 grados) y ácido. Notable

A smooth Belgium ale that has a great round tart taste. Great gold color and subtle aroma makes for an enjoyable zesty Belgium experience.

Zlotta (315) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled in 3/2013 (more than two years old). Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, white head. Fruity-spicy aroma of lemon zest, banana, peach, vanilla and hints of cloves. Fruity-spicy taste of banana, yeast, lemon zest, vanilla, peach and notes of cloves. Short, slightly peppery and gently bitter finish. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Perfectly balanced and very tasty example of a strong belgian golden ale. No alcohol whatsoever notable and quite refreshing. Superb!

Rubin77 (135) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 9, 2015
Foam: nice thick white foam, long lasting. Colour: pale golden cloudy colour, opaque. Aroma: malt, yeast, and some hints of fruity sour and sweet well bonded together. Taste: medium to full body, very well carbonated, yeast are in prominence not surprising, then malt, also some fruity tones like banana, papaya, lemon peel, some nice bitterness and green peppery notes at the end, “very well done” Belgian strong ale.
