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.

10oz on draft. Pours a crystal clear golden colour. On the nose sharp sweet and yeasty with a hint of funk. Taste is smooth with hard funkiness.

Sjohnh (287) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Golden straw colour and a big soft white head. Medium body and lively carbonation. Belgian yeast notes and very peppery, plus apricot, ginger and syrup. Much better than I thought it was going to be - I last had this about 20 years ago and suspected it would be more about the pretty label than the beer. Not so.

330 ml bottle (BevMo) Pale yellow, high carbonation / huge head. Classic Belgian yeast smell and taste. One of the few Belgians I can tolerate because it's not overly sweet and is somewhat refreshing.

Very rich taste with high carbonation. Pours with minimum head. A very smooth beer with a nice after taste.

Maltig lite sommaräng å ja en mycket fräsch mild doft. Doftar å smakar likt en Saison å lite svaga brända Brown Ale toner. Åh förbluffad över 8.5% alkohol vilket jag aldrig kunnat räkna ut. Ja om det inte stod på eticketten då. Jepp det var väl det.

pomko (207) - UKRAINE - DEC 31, 2014
The pour is a cloudy golden orange, the lace resplendent upon the glass. Nose is malt, plummish, light hints of fusel alcohol. Front is sweet, the top is middling, the finish is bearably dry, modestly hopped, and benignly acidic.

loco_gallego (176) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Blonde pâle, légèrement voilée. Mousse blanche "mousseuse", relativement peu persistante. Très fruitée et levures très présente. En bouche pareil très fruitée avec côté terreux-levures. Fin légèrement amère. Très très légèrement acide en toute fin. Plutôt balancée sur le sucré, forte présence des levures.
