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.

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.

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.

11.2oz pale golden colour with small but lasting foam. Has a nice fruity aroma and tastes quite unique . . something like bubble gum noticable, but not quite. As it warms alcohol is more noticable, and at some point an apricot seed like taste appears. Some hints of metallic flavour present. Finishes with nice slightly bitter hop flavour.

Pale golden colour, it poors a big foam that fades quickly. Nice smell of pear, exotic fruits, coriander, oranges and a little of horseblanket. Medium to stronog body, it tastes of tropical fruits, spices, oranges, some other fruits I canít tell. A light dry finish. And a nice and original bottle and label.

tap at the Yard House - Pours orangish with a moderate head and citrusy aroma with a little alcohol. The flavor is sweet with yeast and citrus notes and a hint of spice. Itís medium bodied, easy to drink, and has a light, dry finish.

Draught @ beerbistro, Toronto: The LCBO banned this because of the name, but thankfully the folks at beerbistro convinced the brewery to let them carry it. Came a light-orange/yellow with very little head that retreated to thin lacing quickly. Aroma was sweet malts and fruits with spices and prevalent alcohol. Taste is quite nice with a plethora of fruits and spices alongside malt and yeast. The warnings of alcohol on warming are quite true, drink it fast or suffer the consequences. Still, a really interesting beer and one Iíd have again.

this beer poured a hazy orange colour, with a large white head. smells of sweet malts and fruits like hefes. i love the palate it is very tingly in my mouth and makes it come alive. the flovour is sweet but has an alcohol linger to it. this is an ok beer not the best in the world.

On tap at the Bier Market.... It poured a clear bright yellow colour with a creamy white head. Not a very strong scent but a nice strong flavour like a fine weise beer. A little strong on the finish with hints of alcohol.
