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.

Clásica cerveza belga de alta fermentación. De color dorado intenso, con destellos naranjas y color madera. Genera una gran espuma blanca y jabonosa que, aunque disminuye rápidamente, aguanta durante un buen rato. Aroma muy interasante, típico de las ales belgas, con predominio de la levadura, y en este caso hacen presencia las especias (pimienta, clavo...). En boca es potente en cuanto a sabor: cítricos como el limón, un toque dulce del cereal y sobretodo un sabor especiado de pimienta y cilantro muy agradable. Su cuerpo es medio, con alta carbonatación y el alcohol hace presencia al final, dejando una leve sensación que calienta la garganta. Gran cerveza!

Fles geprobeerd met LiekevdV. Het is een goudgeel bier met een volle witte schuimkraag. Het heeft een frisse citrusachtige smaak.

Light golden, apperance very much like a classical pilsner. Aroma betrayes that it is not, though. It is spicy and acid, like a typical belgian Tripel or strong blond ale. High in carbonation. Taste continous the spiciness, with a slight sweetness and in the end a moderate bitterness. Very nice!

Flesje gedronken tijdens vakantie. Goudgeel troebel bier met flinke schuimkraag. Aroma is citrusachtig en moutig. Smaak is eveneens fruitig en iets hoppig. Nasmaak is iets bitter.

Cybuch (481) - Muszyna, POLAND - SEP 16, 2017
W aromacie przyjemna, słodka brzoskwinia. Z czasem wychodzą nuty przyprawowe. Barwa ciemnozłota, klarowne, piana drobna, obfita, utrzymująca się. W smaku wytrawne, sprawia wrażenie głęboko odfermentowanego, podobnie jak mocne lagery, mogło by być nieco gęstsze i słodowe. Przyjemnie owocowe na finiszu. Alkohol dobrze ukryty. Goryczka niska o ziołowo-przyprawowym charakterze, wysycenie dosyć wysokie. Klasyka, trzeba spróbować, jednak jest to przeciętna, "nudna Belgia".

Bottle (best before date: 09/18) Appearance: gushing from the bottle, big white head, clear with many particles of yeast in it. Aroma: something resembling sour beers and phenols. However, there were no notes of alcohol at all so it seemed to be much more lighter the it was. Taste: sweet and phenolic and nothing much happens. I'm afraid that there was something wrong with my bottle :(

Один из лучших и самых самобытных и уникальных по вкусу бельгийских элей. Множество оттенков мешает легкое алкогольное послевкусие. Всем советую попробовать этого розового слоника .
