3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 I love this beer!
Maybe I judge it unfairly because I fel in love with it as soon as I spotted the bottle at KaDeWe in Berlin.
330ml poured into original glassware.
Honey appearance w/ nice refreshing head. Amazing richness in the aroma. Coriander (?) clove and yellow fruits.
Dry but full palate, massive body for being a blonde.
After having had one you want to drink 6 more and fall into delirium.

Draft most recently - but notes and thoughts from multiple tastings both draft and bottle. Cloudy yellow. Maybe almost a tint of green - maybe some reflection from a neon bar sign - hard to tell. Sweet sugary fruity candied aroma, with lots of spice, pepper, and yeast and a touch of grass maybe. Sweet almost sugary fruit flavors - lemons and some banana, along with pepper amd spices, a significant amount being corriander. Finishes a little bitter and is warming.

Sweet fruity aroma. Cloudy yellow, with a fair thick but short lived head. Flavor is spices with some bitterness. Not as sweet as I expected, and from the tap it was filtered.

I honestly couldn’t think of any better way to package a beer than with pink elephants. I feel like my childhood depictions of alchoholism have finally come true! In cahoots with the label, this beer dances all over the place...but with heavy feet. Thick fruity esters and a yeasty palate make this truly Belgian. It’s also good to see a beer that is so light in color still be so full of flavor. This one caught me off guard.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2005 Delirium Tremens is a very unique belgian amber beer, famous for its incredible bottle. It has an clear amber-orange colour and a minimal head. A fairly bitter flavor with banana and pepper aroma, full body texture, soft carbonation and a long and strong finish.
A beer you should drink when you go out, or perhaps along tortillas and guacamole, or a lime-flavored thai soup.

Pours straw yellow with large white foamy head. Citrus ad spice aroma. Refreshing light wheat, citrus and light spice flavor. Creamy carbonation that dances on the tongue. Sween clean finish that leaves you wanting more.

Bottle: Cloudy golden with a decent amount of sediment floating around in the bottle, very lively, poured a large white head that diminished quickly. Aromas of sweet citrus, malt, and yeast. Flavor was very smooth sweet oranges, bananas. Medium thickness, somewhat coating mouthfeel.

Woh! Not surprised that they have a non see through bottle! The sediment is amazing (heavy chunky particulate). So much so that I’m still not sure if it was just a bad bottle. Very unusual beer to say the least. The flavour was fine. Light, and very sweet malting (cookie, grain, bread) and floral hopping, with undertones of peach, pineapple and apple. Disuguised the 9% abv well (there was still a prescence, but not as if it were as strong as 9%). Very smooth and balanced. Very interesting to say the least.
