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.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) With it’s name, it’s pink elephants on the label and it’s imitated white "ceramics" bottle this beer always attracts some attention from the first-timer. Would be easy just to slash it for it’s corny and kitschy appearance but there’s a more than decent beer in here. Deep, hazy golden with a big, lacing head. Very malty sweetness, lots of body and potency. Yeasty notes are very prominent. Only a faint, late bitterness. 121196

Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with huge bubbly/foamy head. Sweet yeasty and malty/fruitish hints. Strong sweet wheat in flavour with malty hints. Also some notes of alcohol, but they fit the beer good. Sweet wheaty aftertaste. Oily palate.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2009 2008-09-16, draught at Cockney Pub, Århus, 7-3-7-3-14=34
Hazy blond color, thin head. The aroma has a mild fruitness, the smell of wet leaves in autumn, fresh chestnuts, half hay - half grass. Good body, not thick yet powerful, dry malt flavor, enough bitterness in the end. Interesting, for once on tap.

2005-02-28, bottle, 5-3-7-3-13=31
Golden color, poor head. Simple aroma, with some alcohol. Quite sweet, but not malty; a bit oily and fruity; high ending bitterness. Drinkable Ale, with no soul.
