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.

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 (5075) - 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.

TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2004
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.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Hazy orange golden, foamy snow white head. Typical tripel aroma, sharp fruity and citrusy with lots of yeast and hay tones. Typical tripel flavor as well. Dry, yeasty, hayish and citrusy. Harsh finish. I canít believe it isnít listed as a tripel?! All right beer, Iím just not very fond of this style!

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2004 Bottle. Shared one at the Pittsburgh bottle shop Cafe with Ryan. Orange copper and cloudy golden with nice head that remains for the length of the drink (which wasnít long). Great grey bottle! Nose is spicy and sweet with grapefruit and is very strong spice. Tastes sweet and malty with a lot of citrus flavor rolling into a slight bitterness. This one is much like the Victory Golden Monkey, but not quite as sweet. It has a nice full body, with solid carbonation. Iíll have again!

Bottle, 33 ml. This beer is much less dangerous than the label might suggest ! I didnít see any pink elephant after drinking it, and I was very pleasantly surprised! The head is off-white and disappears slowly. The body is unclear gold, and the taste is surprisingly sweet, and the alcohol (still 9 %) is not felt. A very good beer indeed!

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2004 Well my partner bought the Delerium gift pack when were down in DC visiting friends...mostly because she liked the pink elephant glass. Not a bad purchase: Tawny coppery gold with frothy white bubbles that stick around a while. Citrus fruits and cloves and banana aromas, along with noticeable alcohol. Pretty sweet through the medium body and then a malty alcohol finish. Nice.

Dextolen (151) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Bottle. I poured it into a Del. Trem. glass too! Pours a cloudy gold/orange with lots of suspended stuff. The head looks nice but is gone fast. No lacing. The aromas were faint, mainly yeast and hops. It tastes very malty, and has a bitter aftertaste, but nothing really stands out other than that. Strong alcohol aftertaste. I respect it but would probably not pick it up again.

Look out! Look out! Pink elephants on parade. Thats the first thing I think of when I see this beer. Great brew. Deliciously divine. Sweet tasting. Alcohol evident but not overpowering. I canít believe I forgot to rate this after having several of them. Oh well. Its a good brew. And I still have one more to enjoy.
