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.

Christian (12569) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 15, 2016
Hazy golden with a big white head. Aroma of pineapple, bubblegum, spices and alcohol. Sweet spicy and fruity flavour. For such a strong, sweet and yeasty beer, it’s actually quite refreshing and easy drinking.

islay (2084) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2016
Approximately 9 or 10 oz. from a 25.4 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-31-16. 2014 edition. Refreshing, wheaten, yeasty, boozy, and a touch “beery” aroma features scents of bubblegum, caramel, and golden raisin. Pours a hazy, bright gold with a medium amount of cream-colored to ecru head. Butterscotch or almost orange appearance. Looks good. Yeasty, bread-like, wheaten taste features flavors of apricot, cinnamon, and apple. Freshly baked bread or bread dough. Wheaten aftertaste. Medium to full body. Fizzy and frothy in the palate. Refreshing and easy to drink, especially for the ABV. Well-made overall. I forgot to assign scores when I took my notes, so these scores I added from memory several days later.

Butelka 330 ml. Zlota barwa. Piana biala dosc duza szybko opadajaca. W zapachu nuty bananowe koleandru morelowe drozdzy miodu i ziol. Karbonacja dosc wysoka . Babelki pieknie tancza dlugo w sniferze. W smaku drozdze alkohol w glebi banany miod suszone morele. Wszystko swietnie zbalansowane i podane w ladnej szacie . Z pewnoscia wroce z ocena gdy kilka moich butelek dojrzeje...

Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma of crisp fruit with some Belgian spices. Nice apple flavor with some spice notes but finishes a bit dry. Good overall and enjoyable but just a tad too dry to be great.
