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.

very pelasant smelling. Has a combo of sweet apples and oranges with a spicy kick to them. Its a very good and somewhat underrated beer i feel.

Pour is a orange with a white head. Aroma is not as good as some from this brewer but there are notes of yeast and citrus. Flavor is better than aroma. Very spicy with some apple and corrandier in there. Yeast is there in a big way along with some sugar. Pretty tasty and a nice price at one $6 for a bomber. Also available at any good beer store.

Bottle. I had this initially about a year ago and wasn’t too impressed with it. I couldn’t discern any flavor or character with it, but I recently tried it again and was very impressed (must have been a fresher batch?) Has a really large head with some lacing. Nice golden yellow color. Large amount of hop and apple aroma, which follows through with the flavor. An excellent beer. I’m wondering how the draught compares with it.

Delerium Tremens has a crisp apple finish. It was served to me in a wine glass (because of the fermentation of the beer). The color is more of an amber, darker than the usual Belgian beer (in other words...Stella). It’s not as bitter as most Belgian brews.

PilsnerPeter (3030) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Pours light golden with bubbly head. Funky sour scent, earthy and yeasty. Light & crisp flavor. Fruity & sweet. Apples & cherries are in there with a light yeast aftertaste. Maybe a bubblegum character.

Bottle. Golden hazy colour with a medium mostly lasting creamy head. Powerful hoppy aroma and flavour.
