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.

From bottle. Fizzy effervescent pale golden color. Aroma is lightly funky, with apple, plum, and yeast. Taste is crisp, sweet apple, bittersweet honey, spicy yeast, and caramel. Finishes with a spicy, sweet bitterness.

SimonD_Bel (10) - Liege, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2015
Bière forte blonde, mousse moyenne, bulles moyennes. Odeur caramélisée, alcoolisée, très agréable et consistante. Goût également alcoolisé, caramélisé, assez simple. Sucre présent mais contrebalancé par les autres goûts. Touches d’agrume bien décelables sur la longueur. Très agréable, mais ne constituant pas en soi une bière de dégustation.

12oz bottle. Golden yellow pour with large white head. Sweet, honeycomb smell. smooth taste and just the right balance of alcohol and effervesces. Great with dessert.

Quando comparada a Nocturnum, fica devendo ... Adocicado intenso e desproporcional. Alcool bastante presente.
