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.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green, London (during their Old Ale festival), with Joeh, Kook, Duff and Maeib. Golden, no head. Smooth, deep, crisp. Wheat and chalk board flavour. Thick mouthfeel, approaching sickly - but not quite. Mixed, but more + than -.

pootzboy (1611) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
Bottled In the 330ml painted bottle with the signature pink pachyderm. A clear blond straw color...fine bubbled carbonation from bottle conditioning. Frothy white head. Aromas of floral hopping some fruit and musty yeast...very Champagne-like in smell and apperance. Weakly oily palate, hops are subdued in the body, sweetish some spritzyness and detectable alcohol that leaves a yeasty-cider impression when it mingles with the saaz hops and finishes rather abruptly with not much after taste but the alcohol warming. Not the experience I expected after all the hype.

bottle. aroma is of fruit, yeast, alcohol, and some hops. orange body with a big fluffy white head. creamy body. Very sweet and yeasty, somewhat cloying. I was a little bit disappointed with this beer.

Dorqui (2125) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 22, 2004
A lot structured, intense body. Foam of long persistence. Mildew aroma and wine cellar. Elegant perhaps too much alcoholic.

mustang3 (254) - Whitby, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Pretty good. Nce to see the LCBO bring some belgians. Golden yeloow colour and fruity nose almost suggest a triple. Nos and flavour is fruity with a hit of yeast. A little rough around the edges with the alcohol but pretty good.

Aurelius (4561) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 19, 2004
This is pretty good, although its balance makes it indistinct at times. Musty, fruity aroma. Unique label, roasted apricot coloring. Peachy, with a nice acid/sweetness/bitterness balance. The finish is pleasantly fruity, with a good bodyweight. Not too fizzy.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Light gold- mostly clear but last pourings go cloudy. Modest head that fades and gives way to an alcoholic and spicy aroma. Flavor is over the top with alcohol spice and wierd yeasty flavors. A slight horse-blanket flavor is noticed towards the end. Overly carbonated and has a somewhat harsh aftertaste but goes well with spicy foods and cheeses I noticed.

Bottle. Big brown head. Strong fruity aroma. Intesne flavor with lots of spices and raisons or berrylike taste. Very carbonated, almost like a champagne. So much flavor it feels like a pink elephant and dancing aligators are partying in your mouth. A very memorable beer.
