From Brouwerij Huyghe in Belgium comes their “Delirium Tremens” a Belgiam Strong Ale. The beer pours a cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma is of yeast and fruits. The flavour is of yeast, fruit, mild bitterness and some mild alcohol. The alcohol content of this brew is 8.5%. I really enjoyed this beer.
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.
