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.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Pours light gold. Beautifully bready, pale flavour - easier drinking than the ABV suggests

Golden yellow color with high carbonation. Nose is little and has some spicyness in it. The taste is rich, full and very well balanced with some fruity flavours of vanilla and banana. Aftertaste is drybitter. I love this beer!

Floral notes and bible gum will overwhelm the palate. Clear yellow beer with a white head and a sweet aroma ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piwo o zlocistej barwie. Delikatnie zmetnione. Piana ma?o obfita, drobno i srednio pecherzykowa. Niestety bardzo krotka. W aromacie glownie jablko, odrobina kolendry i alkoholu. Wyglad i aromat nie zapowiadaja wybornego smaku. W smaku kolendra, gozdziki, orzewiajace owoce. Wysokie wysycenie idealnie wspolgrajace z caloscia. Kompletnie niewyczuwalny alkohol, niesamowicie pijalne. Mimo kilku wad to naprawde wyborne piwo.

Beautiful pour, golden yellow. Aroma is underwhelming and hides an incredible taste. Unreal to think that this beer is as high percent as it is. A taste that lingers and satisfies but still keeps you waiting for the next sip

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Bouteille. Couleur blond pale, mousse blanche aérienne . Nez fruité, agrumes et fruit a coques. Corps léger , fine et abondante carbonation. Belle longueur en bouche, douce amertume , touche d’agrumes , malt , bien levuré . Un classique rafraichissant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml ($13.99) WOW! brewed in Ghent Belgium since 1654 and well deserved longevity to this beer; its amazing! absolutely worth the money and it will not disappoint. This is a beer to start with so you can taste the flavors. Its so ridiculous that this beer is so drinkable at 8.5% If the price has steered you away in the past just splurge if only once; you won’t be let down.
