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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 solid strong ale but not up to the hoegaarden grand cru or duvel standards...very fragrant and quite enjoyable, just not the best out there

Very sparkley. Drinking this beer is almost like having a citrus party with hints of alcohol. Almost not bitter at all. Great bottle too.

Bottled sample. Light gold in colour with some haze and yeast chunks. Strong carbonation. Clear banana aroma, along with some fine cardamom pods and black pepper notes and apple skins. Flavor wise, the light malts give way to a fairly strong metallic note. Thereís a bit of a sour twang on the back end. Finishes very dry and light. Aside from the metallic note, this seems to be a fairly good beer. It seems very much like a tripel.

Bottle. A nicely done effervescent brew. Light fruits and teasty esters rounded out by orange rind and citrus pulp.

well, thereís a hell of a lot of carbonation in this beer. itís a pretty good beer overall, but i donít know if iíd recommend it too much. the proís? the hops. the hops give Delirium a nice spicy flavor. donít let the golden color throw you off. at first, i had my reservations. itís a rare occasion that i find a beer with an off-golden color that has enough flavor and body to sustain the glass. also, the head has a thick laciness to it that is quite impressive. However, Iím a guy that enjoys complexity in aroma as well as taste. Unfortunately, tremens is lacking in both of those areas. I would give this beer an overall rating of good, but nothing too special.

JaegerMonster (13) - Willowbrook, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Wanted to try something new and the name amused me, not knowing what type of beer this was. Handsome gold color with little head had a good hoppy aroma. Taste was sort of a glazed over bitterness with a slightly stingy aftertaste. While I enjoyed it to the point of it serving itís purpose of something new, not one I would be on a search for.

beerguyB (7) - st. augustine, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2006 does not count
bottle-pours a cloudy golden brown (due to the yeast ) with a big frothy long lasting white head....aroma is bready and grassy....taste is a little bitter and malty but easy on the palate,carbonated and u can taste the alcohol but is not overpowering the flavor.....all in all a very great tasting beer.
