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.

Poured golden & when held up to the light chunks were floating around happily. The aroma was mixed, starting wtih nutmeg and banana followed by soap and ending with lavendar. The flavor continued the banana and added citrus and alcohol. The palate was thin and fizzy. This was a good one.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - FEB 11, 2006
Draught at The Busted Lift in Dubuque, IA. Slightly hazy yellow color with bubbly white head and lots of lace. Yeasty, earthy nose with a bland fruitiness. Tastes of alcohol, yeast, and melon. Dry. Slightly bitter finish. The high alcohol content warms your esophagus and stomach a touch. Very good.

8oz draft @ Dick’s BBQ 96th Street Indy - Aroma is sweet bubblegum, banana, and spicy pepper. Pours clear yellow with small head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bit more yeast showing up. Clean thin palate takes away from the overall experience. Not bad but a little sweet and plain.

Bottle. Pours honey gold with a big, light tan, fizzy, short-lived head. The smell is intense; bananas, malt, spicy pepper, and a hint of alcohol. The taste is not too strong or too light, it has nice balance and the alcohol isn’t overwhelming. Lingering in my mouth is fruit with a little zip, kind of like clove. I like this beer! I think I’ll have another.

AHouse (18) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Got it from the tap, it had little head that faded quickly. Complex taste and quiet flavourful. It was hazy and golden yellow in colour. It masked the high alcohol content very well and was very enjoyable.

This beer is served from the bottle at a new pub that just opened up near me. They gave me the whole bottle and gave me a tulip to drink from. It pours a hazy yellow color with a head that didn’t stick around. It has a very fruity and yeast smell to it, but a very good smell. I was not a huge fan of the taste, but it does have a lot of complexities in it, so I had to give it some favorable marks. It has many different tastes, yeast, fruit, spice... Very interesting beer.

Quevillon (2604) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2006
Je ne l’ai pas trouver mauvaise, mais je l’ai trouvé trop aggressive, trop de goût d’alcool. Par contre, c’est probablement la meilleur bouteille, non-trensparente.
