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.

33cl bottle, pours a cloudy apricot color and makes a fluffy white head. Lacing cascades down my glass with very compact, dense bubbles drifting down as I imbibe this. Strong yeast in the nose with a hint of vinegar. Light peppery spice flavor with coriander, lemon, yeast and alcohol. Medium to full palate with peppery carbonation, finishes quite dry. Excellent strong pale, I really enjoyed it.

Meget spændende øl. Lækker smag. God karakter. Flot farve. Lidt for meget skum.

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.

From The Beer Store (weird eh?) Clear golden yellow with white head. Strong aroma of lemons and straw. Smooth mouth feel. Slightly sweet, with lemon and straw flavours, hints of melon. This is a very lovely beer.

Lekker fris biertje maar met tonen van citrusvruchten en een zoete afdronk die niet te lang blijft hangen

Old rating. Love those pink elephants. Gold color. Spicy Belgian, yeast, some soft fruit, lightly sweet, dry finish. Solid.
