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. Pours brown with a good rocky head. Aroma is big dark sugary sweet, spices, cloying red fruit. Flavor is spicy, light herbal, ripe red currants, dark candy sugar, moderately yeasty. Feel is lively and relatively thin. Too sweet but much better than expected after a lot of years.

I bought a bottle at BevMo and did a search on the internet to find out more about it. Anyway, I cracked it open last night. DT is a tasty example of a Belgian strong ale. I took off points for the appearance because there wasn’t much head. The flavor was great: sharp, strong, clean with lots of citrus and clove flavors. The high alcohol (8.5%) wasn’t apparent until the end of the bottle.

0,33 bottle at Exit bar Peje/Pec Kosovo. Proper glass. Pours golden slightly filtered color, medium white frothy head. Nose: Belgian yeast with a citrus hint, floral bouquet. Mouth: residual dry feel. Start is pleasantly bitter, but in style as a BSA. Alcohol blast but round and good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lbianchi66 (17) - FRANCE - NOV 14, 2014
Une belle robe blonde, légèrement opaque. Dommage que la mousse ne tienne pas. Arômes puissant : floral, malt et levure (pain, biscuit, banane). Goût légèrement ranci, juste ce qu’il faut. Assez longue en bouche. A essayer.
