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.

Nice golden color. It pretty much ends there for me. Extremely bitter on the first sip, then the alcohol takes over, big time! Just not a very enjoyable beer.

I didnt like this beer at all. I am biased against this golden belgian style. It looks like ginger ale, smells like yeast, and tastes like crap. It was way to fizzy for my liking too.

Very Hoppy, carbonated beer. Nice golden color, my best friend liked it more than I did.

THIS KNOCKED ME...OOPS! I forgot, someone has been complaining about my caps...so now I will try to do it backwards ass, anyway this beer knocked me on my ass...and I loved every minute of it. Very strong alcohol reeking fine ale. Left me stumbling in the streets of Manhattan 2 nights ago...I am bowing to it!!

A hoppy, over carbonated belgian golden ale. Still a pleasure to drink.

To much carbonation, it would have been much better if I was not burping up every swallow.

Boring and very light. I felt compelled to purchase this because of the great name.

Strongly hopped and quite yeasty. This beer is different than I remember. Full of liquorice and candi sugar flavors.
