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.

This is good beer lots of malty sweetness no after taste or bitterness. Pours a nice hazy golden with 3 finger head which lingers lots of lacing.

Gubihumle (501) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
Flaske med små elefanter på. Farven er uklar ravfarvet med et meget højt skum Aromaen er mjødagtig og honning medens smagen er græs og syrlig. Sine gode karakterer og berømmelse kommer snarere af navnet end af kvaliteten.

Kauge (1037) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle from Beer Express in Tallinn. Pours a paleish clear golden with a massive off-white head leaving strong lace. The aroma is as expected: estery fruits and mild spiciness. Tastes sweet with a bit of bitterness. Almost fell asleep drinking it. It’s far from bad, but lacks individuality, if not for the fancy packaging.

Assurément une blonde de qualité, mais elle ne m’a jamais plus impressionné que ça.

MohaBeer (135) - Lima, PERU - DEC 11, 2015
Dorado con transparencia, espuma media con buena retención. Lúpulo especiado moderado alto, malta maltoso moderado, tibieza alcohólica, ésteres a hierbas aromáticas, frutos secos, melaza. En boca se confirma lo encontrado en naríz en el mismo orden. Final balanceado malta-lúpulo sin astringencia, con cuerpo y buena carbonatación.

Butelka. Aromat belgijski, przyprawy, brzoskwinie, goździki. W smaku raczej słodkie, alkohol wyczuwalny trochę rozgrzewa.
