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.

Bottle from Belgianbeershop.com. Color: clear yellow golden. Head: thick, white. Nose: spicy, yeasty, fruity (citrus), clear alcohol presence. Taste is very Belgian with lots of yeast, spicy and fruity. Delirium Tremens is a very fine strong ale but I prefer La Guillotine by the same brewer.

TorbenJensen (490) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
Triple with distinct aromas of citrus and lots of cilantro. Lots of floating yeast residues in the glass, The flavor of sweet peach, pineapple, coriander and light citrus towards the end. Large bodied fruit hangs long in the mouth and it is a triple which is slightly sweeter than what i’m used to. In this case, it may not be the most suitable for dishes because of the sweetness. But as an aperitif, it is perfect
