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.

Crisp scent of fruit, hops, and citrus. Clear deep golden colour. Very full body with flavours of spice, fruits, nuts, and berries. Slight bitterness at the front with a warm finish

the aroma of peach, pepper, citrus and, a little bit, yeast... the taste is malty and fruity with shades of toffee, apple, orange and wheat... dry and sweet aftertaste... classics...

Lo primero que llama la atención es su abundante y cremosa espuma blanca muy porosa y que hace compañía a lo largo de todo el trago. La cerveza es de color amarillo anaranjado ligeramente turbio y de una gran vivacidad que la hace muy atractiva. Aroma a cítricos, a pan y a bizcocho y ligeramente afrutado. En boca predomina al comienzo el gran cuerpo y alta graduación de alcohol para dar paso a un sabor ligeramente picante, afrutado y especialmente amargo. Un saludable toque refrescante completan una cerveza con carácter que deja un poso final de cerveza superior y de gran equilibrio de sabores.

It is a good blonde beer. With 8.5 ABV it has white head and the typical blonde taste. I liked it as a blonde just not my brew type preference

chucklemation (407) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a pale yellow with a long-lasting, foamy white head. Has an aroma of sweet Belgian yeast. Flavor is sweet yeast, some wheat, and a good dose of warmth. Very good.

commonmac (252) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Tap at Bulldog NE. Hard to believe I haven’t rated this yet. Very pale golden appearance. Epitomizes the Belgian beer. Lots of hops and some sweetness from the malt. Incredibly easy to drink while remaining complex. Good job Belgium!

Nils7 (11) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Pours with a larger white head and a golden fluid below. A very good beer which could act as a benchmark. Not bad, not outstanding but probably how a beer should be.

Mad_Ferret (618) - SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle @ Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, 27/6-14.
App: Golden with a slight mist from sediment. Big soapy head. Stupid bottle.
Aroma: Spicy hoppy yeasty estery nose with flowers, zest, some green banana, dough, vanilla and cookies, alcohol.
Taste: Citrussy and peppery dry flavour with some alcohol heat. Citrus and some pineapple, honey cookies and flowers, some straw and grass.
Palate: Big body with lively carbonation, but the texture is not so sticky so it comes out fairly breezy.
Overall: Better than expected.

Ļoti gaišs ar vieglu putu. Beļģus ne manā stilā. Ipāšais aroma: rakveres cīsiņi. Varēja būt svaigums vairāk. Un pat arī pliekans
