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.

Woh! Not surprised that they have a non see through bottle! The sediment is amazing (heavy chunky particulate). So much so that I’m still not sure if it was just a bad bottle. Very unusual beer to say the least. The flavour was fine. Light, and very sweet malting (cookie, grain, bread) and floral hopping, with undertones of peach, pineapple and apple. Disuguised the 9% abv well (there was still a prescence, but not as if it were as strong as 9%). Very smooth and balanced. Very interesting to say the least.

LordBrew (131) - Ziemnice, POLAND - FEB 14, 2016
Aromat - drożdże, landrynka + zielone jabłuszko, intensywnie i przyjemnie, tyle w temacie. Piwo wykipiało z butelki bez wyraźnych przyczyn. Kolor jasny blond, lekko zamglony, piana elegancka, śnieżnobiała, drobniutka, trzyma się i zdobi szkło. Smak - wybitnie ukryty alkohol, przyjemna chmielowo-alkoholowa goryczka, solidne wysycenie, bardzo pijalne, posmak długi, przyprawowy, lekko rozgrzewający. Wybitne Belgian Blond/Strong.

pas grand chose à ajouter, la note parle d’elle-même. Première dégustation avant 2003 quand elle titrait à 9%, la réduction à 8.5% fait moins peur et la rend plus agréable.

Cerveza de triple fermentación, de color rubio y con una abundante espuma de color blanco muy espesa. Es de tipo Ale Rubia, la cual fermenta en su botella. Se puede sentir el sabor a malta, fruta y especias; con lúpulo subyacente que destaca a través de un cuerpo firme. Destaca las cualidades excepcionales del lúpulo y los diferentes tipos de malta clara. Tiene un toque amargo que revela su exquisito sabor a malta clara. Representa la Cerveza fuerte en su mejor apariencia. Ganadora en su categoría del WBA (World Beer Award, concurso de cervezas más famoso del mundo) en el año 2009. Servir entre 8°-10° 4,73 Puntos Guía de la Cerveza en Chile 2014, Pascual Ibañez

Just sublime. One of the nicest aromas from a beer I have had in some time. Pours gold.

Bierdimpfe (100) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Clear veiled straw, almost golden color. Extra foamy white 4 finger head lasting around 10 minutes and creating a foam island that you could eat with a spoon. Nice thick legs and powerful activity. Swirling the glass easily recreates a 1 to 2 finger head. Aromas and flavors of citrus, fruits, grains, toasty bread, and herbal spices. Pleasantly balanced flavors and intensity with some fruity orange sharpness and apple sweetness, but with a slightly vinous and metallic feel. Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Balanced finish and well intensified, quite clean, ending with a dry spicy clove like aftertaste. Overall : Delicious, fresh, warming and almost not feeling like a strong beer. Great craft.

330ml Flasche. Gelbe Farbe mit flachem Schaum. Süsser alkoholischer Getreide und Hopfenduft. Auch im Geschmack ist es mir zu süss ubd alkoholisch. Sicherlich ein belgischer Klassiker, aber nicht ganz mein Fall.

datrael (40) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 29, 2016
W aromacie na starcie dominuje żelazo i nuty zbożowe, po przelaniu z butelki pojawia się ogromna, gęsta piana, nawet jak opadnie i tak jest obfita, bardzo bogato zdobi szkło. Kolor złoty, lekko mętny Bardzo mocne wysycenie. Smak to żelazo i wyraźne nuty pszeniczne, z czasem pszenica zaczyna dominować, żelazo zanika, pojawia się lekka słodycz w tle. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, pijalność bardzo wysoka. Niby nie ma w tym piwie nic nadzwyczajnego, ale pije się je bardzo dobrze, wciąga. Pierwsze wrażenie niezbyt ciekawe, ale z czasem piwo nabiera smaku, chce się je pić jeszcze i jeszcze
