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.

dnicolaescu (2711) - Chișinău, - MAY 30, 2013
Head: white, big, frothy and creamy, avg. retention. Colour: yellow-golden, hazy. Aroma: sourish and fruity, lollipoppy sweetness, some sharpness, spice/coriander. Taste: starts sweet, then gets drier and more sour and slightly bitter. Velvety mouthfeel, both because of soft carbonation and well balanced sweet-sour-bitter taste. Very good!

Vertigo Caen. Bière blonde forte légèrement épicée assez agréable et fluide en bouche , cependant je trouve qu'elle ne se démarque pas assez pour être inoubliable.

Bottiglia 33 cL @ Valhalla Pub, Pavia. Biondo pallido, abbastanza limpida, carbonata, schiuma chiara e persistente. Al naso spicca prepotentemente il malto e le spezie. In bocca è calda, dolce a inizio beva e con una chiusura amara, secca e persistente. Belga purosangue.

Buğday birası. Aşırı asitli, çok fazla köpüğü de var. Malt tadı fazla alınamıyor. Gövde bulanık.

Bottle - Golden amber with large white head. High carbonation. Sweet coriander, faint banana aroma. Slight ting on tongue, but soft. Decent tasting, alcoholic finish. 8.5% strength - beer to sip!

Wonderful belgian Beer. Lots of carbonation, slightly hazy, beautiful light color. Nose: Very belgian - Bubblegum, clove, hay, a little funk Taste: Very crisp and refreshing. Very balanced bitterness, dry, floral. If you like belgian beer, you're gonna love this.

Okay. Belgian-strong pale blond, slightly malty, spicy dry bitterness. Not a favorite but better than the others I️ tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
