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.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - MAR 18, 2007
Hazy golden color, medium white head. Fruit aromas and taste. Rich flavor with lots of fruit and sweetness, almost none bitterness. Decent beer but abit to sweet for my likings.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2007
Pours golden yellow with white head. Sickly sweet aroma... like malt liquor... little yeast presence. Flavor was sickly sweet... like malt liquor... Very very very very disappointing... bad bottle?

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Floaters galore! This baby was full of them. Cool looking light amber. Kind of sour aroma with hint of yeast. Tart and bubbly on the lips and tongue. Alcohol content was well disguised. I really liked the looks of this one - much more matter floating around than almost any beer I have seen. Didn’t have the fullness in taste that I enjoy -- I would have liked a little more maltiness.

pinkzambia (1803) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Tap at Flying Pie on Fsirview: Gold with a light head. Yeasty aroma with an ultra yeasty taste, grains and alcohol. The main thing I liked about it was that it had a nice, smooth finish. Otherwise, I am not a huge fan of Belgians.

illkarate (115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured a beautiful golden color, small foamy white head. Good malty taste, sweet, medium finish. Spicy with hints of nutmeg, straw, a little acidic. Great warm-weather brew and it packs a nice punch.
