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 have to say I was disapointed by the rave reviews and bottle shops raving about this one. I was so excited to try and was left rather dissapointed. IMO it didnt hide the alchohol well and I actually queezy after drinking this. NIce aromas of sugar and fruits and nice citrus and spice notes. Meh, not worth 10$ per bottle.

Draught @ Delirium Café, Bruxelles: Yellow coloured. Unclear. Dense white head. Sweetness berries and fruit in the nose. Flavour is light fruity and yeasty. Has some spicy notes. Is medium bodied. Ends on a quite grapish and sour note. Quite refreshing

This beer offers a nice healthy aroma of wheat and clove. This beer is a nice crisp golden color with a thick off-white head. This beers heavy presence fills the mouth well and has a citrus tingle that pierces the taste buds as it deposits a healthy wheat taste on its way down the throat.

Gotta say, didn’t live up to the hype, especially for 10 dollars. Nice bottle though. A bit of a sweet lingering taste, not too hoppy, not to sour. Was really just okay!

hazy pale orange with a huge creamy foam head. aroma is very spicy and sugary. cotton candy, banana, bubble gum, and yeast aroma. bubble gum, spices, yeast, and candy are present in flavor as well. definitely a good one.

frankenkitty (1981) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2006
A white, fluffy head fades really quick over a coppery/golden body with chunky yeasty bits. Aroma finds crisp banana yeastiness wtih enough caramel to make this come off as a sweet dessert. Spicy in the mouth with fluffy carbonation that carrys sweet yeasts to all parts of the mouth. In balance to the yeast are malts... no hop presence. Light metallic and slightly sour finish.

Draft at Delirium Cafe, Gothenburg.. Thick fine-laced persistent head. Deep golden. Clear. Looks perfect. Aroma is minty and full of laurels. Slight sourness in the nose. Prlckly sourness and clear maltiness. Peppery. Great balance.

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.
