I honestly couldnít 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. Itís 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.

Woh! Not surprised that they have a non see through bottle! The sediment is amazing (heavy chunky particulate). So much so that Iím 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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
a golden color w/ hints of reds and a large fluffy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, apples & pears, alcohol, and spices. Palate is highly carbonated well coated. Flavor is highly spiced and pretty alcoholic some fruits but overdone in the spice and yeast. Overall OK but not that special.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (330ml) - the beer the LCBO didnít want me to have - thanks to blankboy for smuggling it into Ontario from Quťbec. Poured a very hazy bubbly orangey-amber with surprisingly an only average fizzy white head. Aroma a sweet melange of malt, sharp yeast and spices, alcohol, citrus fruits, apples, pears and banana. Taste was of very spicy and fruity malt (apples, oranges and apricots), off-dry wine, yeast and I suppose itís hops that make it bitter on warming. Mouthfeel is peppery and lively - overall a little alcohol-harsh, but not enough to prevent my enjoying it. I prefer coubles and quads, but this oneís a keeper. And donít treat the 9% lightly - itíll put you down if you donít respect it. Keep it to one or two.

Beautiful Belgian strong. Spicy malty character with a fluffy texture that is hard to beat. Like a pilsener on steroids.
