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.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Proper glass draft. Sweet, yeast, Belgian ale w/ alcohol burn & the expected candi-sugar. A very good golden, bubble-gum yeast Belgian.

buczykij (200) - Limanowa, POLAND - FEB 20, 2018
Golden color, slight cloudiness. Foam on average abundant, fine, quite durable. Sweet aroma, bubble gum, no alcohol. Sweetish flavor, spice note. Beer is heavily saturated, warming, light and well drinkable.

A smooth bread yeast-like aroma. A clear light golden body. Bold bready yeast appears again in the taste. It had a modest bitterness that is smoothed out by a sweet grain maltiness. Delicious!

Hopverdju (1717) - BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2018
Helder goudblond bier met grote bellen en witte schuimkraag. Geur: mout, granen, wat alcoholisch, licht zoet. Smaak: licht zoet, licht bitter, wat alcoholisch, vleugje fruitigheid, wat gistkarakter. Veel koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Afdronk: droog, licht bitterzoet.

3.4
VueltaBirrista (163) - Murcia, SPAIN - FEB 18, 2018
Dorada y muy limpia, despliega una generosa corona de espuma blanquísima y cremosa. Se presenta muy carbonatada y el rosario de burbujas da mucho juego. Huele a trigo y frutas y en boca el plátano es predominante, además del lúpulo moderadamente amargo y un final seco y alcohólico.

Delirium: The attractive design on the bottle is a real eye catcher, especially with the words ‘strong’ and ‘8.5%’ highlighted in red font. If as much effort has gone into the brewing process then we’d be in for a belter. The first sip was different to any beer I’d ever tasted before, it was smooth and was jam packed with flavours. As the tipple hit the pit of my stomach a nice warm feeling evaporated up to my chest, which gave a strange yet enjoyable sensation. I was expecting the taste to get worse with each sip, as so often happens, however I was pleasantly surprised that didn’t happen. This drink is a classic example of why this organisation is running. A beer that I would never have usually chosen, but definitely will again. I’ve tasted nicer beers, but as a complete package (strength v taste) this tipple delivers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aardig bier maar wel het minste van de bekende brouwerij met de olifanten. 8,5% komen niet echt stevig binnen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Excelente cerveja! Levedura e hops muito presentes. Apesar do teor alcóolico de 8.5%, muito palatável e suave. Uma cerveja Belga que merece ser provada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shari and I both liked this beer. I see why they won best beer award. Slight hint of flops in the nose, has somewhat of a fresh fruity small, Belgium tasting beer, no real after taste. Golden light brown color. We want more of it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 比利时黄金强爱尔 一贯的金黄色 正如瓶上所述 开瓶后闻到了很明显的柑橘味 黄金爱尔8.5的酒精度很常见 入口后的味道与闻上去的味道并不完全一致 酒精度较高的干爽体验 口感可没有瓶上画的那么可爱

This is my favorite beer, though it should only be drunk on special occasions because the flavor can get old after having it too many times ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
