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.

Barwa żłta. Mocno nasycone, piękna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, jest lacing. Niska goryczka, mocny aromat alkoholu. Musujące i wytrawne wykończenie.

Piwo przypomina mi aromatem piwa pszeniczne. Jest więc banan i nuty brzoskwiniowe. Całość jest dosyć słodka i świeża. Bardzo przyjemny aromat, choć mało intensywny. Pierwszy łyk i czuć, że jest w nim sporo alkoholu. Czuć ja unosi się on w głowie, ale w smaku jest bardzo dobrze zamaskowany. Dopiero po jakimś czasie jest lekkie pieczenie w gardle. Piwo jest dobrze nagazowane, przypomina mi trochę smak szampana. Musującego szampana. Są więc białe winogrona i lekko słodki finisz.

Golden colour with white head. Yeast, dry citrus fruits a medium body with a soft bitternes. I had the feeling it tastes a little bit like stale beer.

Una de las cervezas que ms disfruto. Pese a tomarla durante aos considero que es una cerveza obligatoria en casi cualquier cervecera que se preste. Apariencia exquisita, encaje y corona tan sensual como apetecible, buen aroma, complejo. Una buena explosin de sabor con ABV totalmente integrados en el sabor. En definitiva, enamorado de esta cerveza.

Pours straw yellow with very lively carbonation and a clean white head. Aroma is pure Belgium! Cloves, coriander, ripe bananas, apricots, orange, pineapple, grassy herbs and light caramel. Taste is sweet, but with bitterness coming through amid a boozy long, long finish. Light bodied for its ABV. Serious beer.

Klares Gold, feinporiger schaum. Aroma weisswein, hefe. Suerlich im Antrunk, prgnantes weisswein Bouquet bis zum Abgang. Krper schwer, hlt alles gut zusammen. Im Nachgeschmack hopfig, minimal suerlich.

19Oracolo78 (171) - ITALY - MAR 2, 2017
Birra dal colore dorato. Schiuma fine e poco persistente. Allolfatto sentori di frutta e frutta candita. Al pala corpo medio, note dolci di fruttato, frutta candida, uvetta e un accenno mielato. Nel finale rimane lievemente amara. Una birra con abbastanza alcol ben camuffato. Una buona birra godibile con formaggi ma anche con dolci.

mgajdaczewa (1984) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 1, 2017
W aromacie piękny belgijski fenol przprawowy, nieco owocowości, muśnięcie kolendry. W smaku gładkie, przyprawowe, świetnie zbalansowane, goryczka niska, lekka kolendra i bliżej nieokreślona owocowość. Świetna warka mi się trafiła!

Dacrza (928) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 28, 2017
DATE: February 28, 2017... OCCASION: welcoming Lent with a Fat Tuesday-worthy beer... GLASSWARE: Chimay 150th anniversary glass... centers on an impressive spiral of explosive bubbles, akin to underwater fire... its murky golden body supports a crown of thick white, creamy, even head that laces symmetrically--what isnt to like about the way this looks? smell of pineapple, peppercorn, anise, lemon zest, fresh dough, and some barnyard funk... slight phenol return as well... sips smoothly, albeit with some texture... tingles the tongue... light to medium-bodied, slightly tart at the finish.... strong pineapple, grapefruit, banana, lemon, and hay funk makes for quite a cornucopia of flavor... I have eyed this bottle for decades, only to have my uncle-in-law hand me one for Christmas....it was well worth the wait, as its dry finish elicits a pleasing reaction... great as a gift, though its price point is a bit high...
