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.

Licht nevelig, geel bier met veel gistvlokken. Grote, witte schuimkraag zakt snel in. Aroma is weeig, hop, zoet brood, gist, abrikoos. Smaak is vrij zoet en licht kruidig. Zacht in de mond, voldoende film, hooguit iets te waterig.

On bottle @Musen & Elefanten. Pours clear yellow/orange, with thick white foam. High carbonation, notes of apples. The scent is a little alcoholic. The texture is quite smooth, not creamy. Lots of taste.

aleanguz91 (177) - Grignasco (NO), ITALY - JAN 9, 2018
Bevuta il 09/01/17 @DurtyNelly'sPub in Borgomanero (NO). Biondo paglierino. Schiuma bianca pannosa e persistente. Al naso leggeri sentori maltati e caramellati. In bocca è molto effervescente, troppo, carbonazione eccessiva. Sapore di lieviti, caramello bruciato. Retrogusto amarognolo. Moltissimi sedimenti sul fondo del bicchiere e in sospensione, sicuramente un "chill haze": servita ghiacciata. Scaldandosi emergono le note caramellate ed etiliche.

Bottle. Now obviously a classic but too clovey, banana like and lagery. Essentially not my bag but I can appreciate it

Pours a nearly clear, light golden with a huge, frothy, white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty, spicy, fruity with pear and cherries along with sweet malt - honey. Medium full body with a fizzy carbonation, a light bitterness and a medium sweetness. Flavor of sweet malt with honey, sugar, biscuit, sweet fruits, citric fruits and spicy yeast flavors. Finishes with a lasting herbal hoppy bitterness and some warming alcohol. Aroma: 7 Appearance: 3 Taste: 7 Palate: 4 Overall: 14 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 Semiamarga, poco afrutada pero más bien especiada. Idéal para postres, es muy dulce y muuuy pegadora .355ml. Parecería que tiene 15% de alcohol pero sólo tiene 8.5%
