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.

Bottle Pours a cloudy unfiltered looking pale amber with a huge shite head that is still slowly going down. Aroma is that classic Belgian symphony of spice, sweetness, this one more on the fruity side. Flavor is a slightly bitter spice taste. Some of the regular clove and fruity spice flavors are here. The feel is smooth and the atertaste has a distinct rust or metalic hint that puts me off a bit.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Bottle. Nice yellow color with a thick, entertaining head. I love having the right glass for a beer. Aroma is yeasty and spicy of white pepper and light pears. Taste is alcohol first followed by light bitter hops and sweet candy-like malts. Balanced well and highly quaffable.

Crazy bottle! pink Elephants. Spicy aroma over a hazy yellow base. Citrus and wheat flavours with a not too spicy texture. As a matter of fact, I canít remember having a beer as smooth as this. Aftertaste is a bit bitter... but itís still a great beer. As good a strong ale as youíre bound to find anywhere.

Spicy aroma over a nasty yellow color with a lot of yeast chunks. The fruity flavor is a lot better than the aroma or the appearance indicates.

Cornfield (5541) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2004
This pours out with a nice pale golden color, quite carbonated, although the head doesnít last long. Spicy and fruity aroma and tastes with a noticeable alcohol presence. Sugery malt flavors. You donít really notice the hops until the finish.
