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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Draft at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Golden color. No head. Little bit of spiciness, alcohol was hidden nicely. Other then that, kind of boring. Rerate bottle: slightly metallic, slightly cloying, reminds me of a Dupont mixed with Heinikin.Fruit cake, the gross kind, after taste. Reminds me of Malt liquer lowering score

Bottled. Pours a hazy orange color with a smally foamy head and alot of sediment floating about. Sweet yeasty aroma with a hint of candy. Smells quite appealing. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Nice yeasty flavor with a hint of grain and quite a bit of spiciness. A little bit of an alcoholic kick in the end.

Extraordinary banana-bubblegum nose. Lasting head with pretty lacing. Very subtle pepper bitterness dominated by fruits. Plenty of malt with modest malty aftertaste. Had this before at the bar and wasn’t expecting it to be so good at closer inspection, but this is damn tasty.

RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Pours a hazy pale gold, with a nice two finger head slow slowly fades to a thick cap, and leaves thick sheets of lacing. Smell; citrus, hay, cloves, and just a bit of alcohol. Taste; cloves and spices, a little lemony citrus, followed by that barnyard hay, and finishing with a bit of an alcohol bite. Mouthfeel is nice and thick, but gets a bit of a hit due to a little to much carbonation for my liking. Wouldn’t mind having more of these if they were available in my area.

Probably a little sweeter and syrupy than some would expect from a tripel, but it does tatse good. Packs a wallop, so be careful.

I’m disapointed. People often refer to this as the best beer in the world. Not anyone from ratebeer mind you, but alot of people say it’s the best, and I think they are wrong. Pours a coludy pale sandy yellow, thin head, lightly carbonated. It’s very silky in the mouth. Aroma, taste and aftertaste are COMPLETLY dominated by wheaty bubblegum, so strong I cant taste any depth. It is very warming, but I cant say I like it. Cheers

33 cl bottle. Yeast in bottom. Golden colour with a white head. Caramel and toffee aroma with notes of yeast. Nice mouthfeel of yeast, citrus and spice. Ends with a warm feeling from the alcohol.
