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.

Nice golden robe that surprised me with its high carbonation. The head is bright and creamy and the nose fresh, malty and floral. On the tongue you get a light hoppy taste with lots of malts. Nice product!

Golden pour, nice foam head with some moderate lacing. Very light carbonation which is appreciated. Flavours include yeast, banana, spices (cloves, coriander), with a medium hoppiness. Great!

Drinking from tab at Delirium cafe Amsterdam. No special aroma, just some alcohol. The clear golden beer has a medium white head. The taste is sweet and hoppy. Medium carbonated.
