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.

(330 ml bottle) Delirium Tremens: the rapid onset of confusion and spasms, resulting from alcohol withdrawal. At 9% ABV, there's hardly any chance of that! This gruesome malady's beery namesake is presented in a grey, ceramic bottle; simply branded 'Delirium'. Pours a slightly hazy, golden-yellow beer, with vigorous fine carbonation, forming a tight white head, made from beautifully regular pearly bubbles. Yeast aromas come through first, echoing a Hefeweizen: banana and clove ride the cusp of the vapour. Sweet malt lies just behind, with notes of gooey bread dough. The hops deliver just a fine whiff of citrus, before deeper notes take hold: honey, oak sap, crème brûlée, sultanas, caramelised cashew nuts, mineral water, and a subtle earthy finish. Crisp and clean, but extremely effervescent - explosive and tumultuous. Overall, not bad. Despite the complexity of Delirium's aroma, it's just a little lacking. Sweet, spicy, and highly refreshing, but far too fizzy to comfortably drink.
