Delirium Tremens (Belgium)
This Belgian brewery was established in 1654.
Delirium Tremens was first brewed on Boxing day 1989. Three different kinds of yeast are used in the brew to provide a distinct appearance and character.
The beer is brewed using a triple fermentation technique that they have been using for hundreds of years.
On the nose this beer has grassy hop aromas with some good yeast characters. The beer itself is filled with lots of spent yeast. It is light golden in colour with a very foamy white head. The beer has a nice balance of malt with the alcohol lingering on the palate. The beer has a perfect light to medium body.
This is a very, very good lager. Really refreshing and with great warmth from the alcohol. A perfect Saturday night lager but too strong for a session on a tuesday.
