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.

I’d rate a lot of these Tripel-style Belgians higher were it not for the aroma, which is more the character of a macro lager. Otherwise, this is a great beer and another fine representative of its style.

Bartzilla (568) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 1, 2006
This is my very favorite beer... period. Don’t even try and call me out on this fact. The mouthfeel, the flavor, the fine bubbles, the lacing, the little cartoon animals on the bottle. All works of sheer genius. And, get this... it’s not even made by monks! Ya figure monks would be trying to steal this recipe. Especially those monks who make that Orval crap. Anyway, this stuff will make you rich and help you score beautiful women.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2006
Fruity aroma and golden color. Very strong alcohol level but you don’t sense any discomforts due to that. A bit diffrent in style from other strong belgian ales I’ve had. I like the design of the bottle.

robe blonde orangée voilée surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse en dentelle qui persiste. Aromes d’épices, de levure et de citron. Saveurs de citron, de levure, d’épices et d’alcool.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2006
Poured a clear golden with little to no head. Fruity and full of other flavors and aromas that I can’t put my finger on. A little nip of alcohol, but nothing to turn me away from this beer. The smoothness and high alcohol mixture can make a couple of these sneak up on you, but that isn’t that bad of a thing in this case.

aenimopiate (176) - The United States of Texas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 I really liked this beer. It has a fruity nose and a thick golden color. The taste is just as the smell advertises....fruity and full of flavor. It’s a bit expensive for my everyday tastes, but is good to have every now and then. If you are a fan of beers that have a full and fruity flavor, check this one out.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - APR 22, 2006
This is an interesting beer. Very strong fruity aroma.....possibly bananas, from the onset throughout the entire bottle. Pours into the tulip glass with a yellow-golden color, with thick white head and excellent lacing. Overall, this was a much fruitier beer than I care for, so I rated the flavor at only a 6. However, I can see how women or fans of lambics and similar beers would really enjoy this.

Beerdedone (2956) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of spices, alcohol, citrus, and sweetness. Flavor is sweet, citrus, yeast, very smooth and refreshing.

Big foamy head, lovely blonde, light lovely aroma, good malty taste, even for me (not a big fan of malt, but I liked this!), vanilla notes, went down smooth and nice. Definitely buy again.

Bottled BBE Dec 06. I really should rate more as I drink. Dazzlingly blond, as if a thousand points of light are caught in the body of the beer. A Keyser Soze head - like that, it’s gone. There’s a liquid citrus aroma that reaches into the very back of your nose - assertive though, not overwhelming. And that effervescent feel - esters fight to the fore, a slight cherry twang, a sorbet tingle, a longer ever-so-slight sourness, a sweet lick left around the lips. I’ve kept this back for a day when I could sit back and enjoy a great single bottle after a long shitty day - this was the day, that was the beer.
