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.

Nie do końca klarowne, z pianą białą pianą grubopęcherzykową. Po otwarciu butelki wystąpił gushing ale nie odczuwam żeby było zepsute(piwo stało ponad 24h w ciemnym miejscu). Wyczuwalne słodkie aromaty owocowe (banan? nektaryna/brzoskwinia). Piwo jest pijalne, ale dla mnie zbyt duże wysycenie.

Cerveja Belga ALE, forte, bem balanceada apesar de amargor forte. Sabor e odor alcoolico bem escondido

Bottle @ Athens Craft Beer Expo. Pours golden with rich foamy white head, medium body. Beautiful fruity aromas like peach, pineapple and dried fruits, yeasty, earthy, caramel, citrus, orange. Rich texture, lively carbonation, some sweetness remains on the tongue. A very good example of Belgian strong.

Classic huge and extra tasty head. Like the one found on Duvel. Very floral taste and you barley notice its high alcoholic percentage apart from the way it goes straight to your head, like champagne. This is the second time I have had this drink and I can’t help but feel that the taste underwhelms. Its not at all bad but its not the best drink of its kind that I have tasted. I find the floral white beer notes overpowering. I have come to believe that the real reason why this drink is held in such high regard is that it gets you to a very sociable and happy level of drunk. After a few bottles of this you feel on top of the world. A few more and you are a drunken mess!

Flaska 75 cl belgolådan. Gyllengul vätska med stort vitt skum. Fruktig, aningen syrlig och blommig doft av äpple, gräs och citron. Frisk smak av äpplekart, gräs, örter och belgojäst. Spritsig munkänsla med diskret beska.

Un olor a centeno con un toque fresco y agradable. El gusto es el de una rubia con cierto tueste sin ser una tostada pura con un regusto excelente. Perfecta para aquellos que busquen algo más fuerte que una rubia sin llegar a una tostada. La carbonatación es similar a una rubia y ligera sin mucho cuerpo.

Geruch nach trockenfrüchten Hefe, im gescannt sehr kräftig würzig Hefe und Reife Banane, ein bisschen alkoholisch im Geschmack
