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.

Slepkov (39) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JUN 15, 2008
Pours a hazy orange tinted yellow, with a coarse and small head. The carbonation is visibly coarse, with large and effervescent bubbling. Head dissipates rapidly, leaving little trace of its presence. On the nose, the aroma is both yeasty and fresh, with mango and banana notes, followed by passion fruit. Mouthfeel is terrific. Light and mineral, with some interesting metallic notes. The yeast flavour is unique and enchanting. The carbonation is actually quite welcome and balanced! The alcohol is well integrated, even for 8.5%. Well done. Can I get something similar from America for half the price? Yes.

Marstonlad (540) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 23, 2015
A hazy golden color and a big white head. The aroma features pale maltiness and yeasty spiciness with a solid Belgian farmyard element, very fruity. Taste is light sweet at first but later sourness and bitterness rise. Fruity, earthy flavours create a strong, rich mix. The palate is full bodied, slightly sticky with low to average carbonation. One of the classic strong Belgian ales.

mt_hall (148) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2015
Bottled. A clear gold/amber colour with a good-sized foamy white head and noticeable carbonation. Spicy (clove) aromas, with bubblegum and some sweet fruit too. A sweet start with light fruit, then a drier, spicy, warm finish and a very dry aftertaste. Very good.

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