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.

A thin white head and light gold body. The aroma is bananas, peaches and some diapers. Also a hint of clove. The taste is fairly spicy with some bananas, cinnamon and even a little walnut in the finish. A decent brew, but a little light on taste. I would like a little more body and flavor.

Very good beer for the style. My fiancee got very very drunk one time on this beer, and I’ll always laugh to myself about it. She picked it because of the elephants on the label... what a beer she happens to pick!

This was the first non US produced Macro Crap I had ever drank therefore it will always have a place in my heart. It may not be the greates of the Belgian strongs, but it has the best bottle!

This was okay, the 8.5% does not really come to the forefront, so at least it does a decent job masking the alcohol. To me, I just could not pinpoint any dominant flavorings or overwhelmingly positive attributes. Certainly different, for some reason though, this uniqueness is hard to describe. Some fruity overtones and decent on the palate. A pretty good ale, yet for the price I expected much better. This brewery cons the general public by putting their beer in these inticing bottles I swear.

tap. last beer of the night, becuase i’m trying to look thin tomorrow night (although this washed down a cheeseburger and fries) because cute boy from the past and i have a "movie" night on saturday... and every one knows "movie" is code for hot and wild sex...ANYWAY... pale golden color... fluffy white head... wheaty nose with tangerine notes... tastes more fruity, reminds me of a cider/champagne

roder60 (1283) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Pours a cloudy gold with some white head. Aroma is kinda carmely, alcoholish, and fruity. Taste is very very sweet and strong, way too much caramel taste if you ask me and a little spicy finish. Overall, Im not a fan.

Golden body with frothy head. Nose is fruity and sweet, as is the flavor. Perhaps too sugary. Anyway, nice name.

From a 750 ml bottle - Wow, a Belgian blonde ale that I like! This one poured a sun-golden liquid with a tall white head and a spicy aroma. Tastewise, it was bit "grassy", but well-balanced and quite enjoyable.
