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.

Bottle conditioned brew. Amazing Belgian strong ale. Hazy gold in color, with a white foamy head. Starts off sweet with a hint of banana, apricot, and nut. Finishes with a bit of a doughy bitterness. Gotta love the complexity on the palate.

750 mL bottle. 09/06/2020 dated bottle. Bottle split with my brothwr, back from Europe. Can't believe I never rated this, but grateful that I get the chance to enjoy a bottle with my brother, with a bottle purchased on base in Germany. Glad to finally have you home! Cheers to your next journey! These are some of the most beautiful bottles out there. A golden pour, slight haze, ton of foaming head. Fragrant aroma. Cream body. A ton of Belgian yeast character. A mellow strong ale for sure. Quite an easy drink. A recognizable, one of a kind beer too. A memorable beer experience. Enjoy this one.

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.

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

santiman123 (2) - MEXICO - JAN 5, 2018 does not count
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%
