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.

mateuszk (1372) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Tap. Pours clear. light amber with solid head. Aroma of fresh fruits, peach, berries and peppery in the finish. In taste fruity and citrusy with malty base, but no heavy at all and peppery in the finish. All completed with medium bitterness and fizzy carbonation to give more mouthfeel. Very drinkable, alcohol completly hidden. Classic beer.

Slubgob (264) - West Hartford, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle into wine glass. Slightly hazy golden color, thick foamy white head. Malt nose, a bit of earth and cereal probably the yeast, and a bit of fruit. Light malt in the mouth, more hints of yeast and faint bandana, modest bitterness, medium finish. Very easy drinking, and hides the higher alcohol easily.

Nogal een bittere smaak, veel schuimkraag, donkere kleur. Zeer traag te drinken.

kingaugusta (157) - Georgia, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours hazy gold with a lingering white head. Nose is fruity and yeasty with a sharp tart character. Flavor is similar and a vehicle of strong carbonation. Hops come out a bit on a good dry finish. Good stuff.

Gaszing. Barwa złota, piwo klarowne. Biała, obfita piana, duże pęcherze. Aromat dosyć intensywny. Słodowy, przyprawy, lekki banan. Piwo mocno nagazowane, średnio pełne. Orzeźwiające. W smaku delikatnie kwaśne. Lekko rozgrzewający alkohol. Owocowe, przyprawowe.

Glass at a bar in Freiburg. Golden colour with a huge white head. Intense yeasty aroma with white bread, candy and some citrus. Taste is yeasty Weizen-like but with more sweetness and some spicy notes. Nice smooth carbonation.

Draft beer poured at craft beer market in Edmonton. Pours clear golden color with almost no head. Smell is very powerful; yeast or bread. Taste is sweet and has a slight citrus flavor. Not a huge fan but I’ll drink it.

Complex nose. Golden haze. Fruity, estery. Palate delivers what the nose promises. Dry finish. Beautiful.

Hanoi (709) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle. It’s years since I’ve had this. Nose is yeasty, esters, peach strawberry. Taste is esters, straw, strawberry, pear, lots of banana with a dry thin finish. It’s a bog standard triple, that would be nowhere if it wasn’t for the fancy bottle.
