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.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Aftertaste is stale and nasty. Texture of the beer is extremely syrupy. The carbonation level is much too light for a beer of this strength.

Bottle 33cl: golden colour with a little head. Very fruity aroma. Excelent!, you can see all the yeast. Sweet flavour and a note of citrus. At final sweet and bitter.

Bottle from Lukas Liquor. Golden pour with large, lasting head. Lots of yeast in the glass. Very easy drinking (dangerously so), hoppy finish. Refreshing. Very nice beer.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2007
One of the first belgiums I had. Pretty impressive at the time but now it has slumped alittle. Very yeasty with a medium body. Pretty well balanced but not as good as alot of other belgiums.

StueyD (1566) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2007
A deep, honey yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong, sour fruit nose, citrusy, with an unripened red fruit aroma, and a hint of malt. A fizzy mouthfeel and a strong potent taste, tart, citrusy hop flavour, sour red fruits, spicy and a touch smokey, then a malty taste that leads to a dry finish. (Bottle - purchased from Beers of Europe, Setchey, Norfolk for 1.95 a bottle).

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Nose is complex and on the sweet side. Bready/yeasty, fruity esters. Apples, bananas, light hops. Dark orange with lively carbonation and some yeast floculation. Huge frothy white head which subsides to a slightly thinner but still frothy topping that laces nightly. Flavor is rather sour and lacks the complexity of the nose. This bottle has been sitting around for a bit which may have muted some of the subtleties. Palate is well-suited, but could use a bit more substance.
