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. Pours a nice golden color with a white head. Lots of bubbles. Aroma is mostly Belgian yeast with some sweety and grassy notes. Taste is yeast, orange peel, and some sweetness. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall a top notch beer.

mt_hall (148) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Bottled. A clear gold/amber colour with a good-sized foamy white head and noticeable carbonation. Spicy (clove) aromas, with bubblegum and some sweet fruit too. A sweet start with light fruit, then a drier, spicy, warm finish and a very dry aftertaste. Very good.

Everything about this beer is big. It is just over the top for me. I like good stouts but am partial to uber hoppy imperial grade pale ales. If you had to choose a white Belgian strong ale, this is it.
