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.

Mix well before pouring. The first glass was clear gold, the next two were cloudy and unfiltered. The first glass tasted good, but nothing special. The second two were rich, full, lovely. A delightful belgian with a mild spiciness. Balanced and sweet. Mmmmm.

argo0 (11636) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 5, 2002
Spicy, alcoholy, and fruity, in that order -- not near the quality of delirium noel, but still a decent beer.

pilsnerrogge (2534) - FinspŚng, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2002
Light body, fruity, yeasty. The alcohol add some sweetness. Dangerously easy to drink!

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2002
Smelled like candy and tasted very sweet...a perfect beer for after dinner.

brewbandit (312) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 19, 2002
Spritzy golden color with white long lasting head. Fruity, citrus, aroma and flavor with alcohol coming through. Light sweetness of malt drying out in the finish. Smooth enough to catch you unawares!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Thin, clean, alcoholic & spicy. I did not find what I hoped to.

CQC (224) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2002
Another belgium beer... Pretty fast paced. Slightly dodgy aftertaste. Got summit in there that shouldnít be. When I work what it is Iíll tell ya. But, as in most cases, Iíll have another.

Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2002
I didnít find the complexity in this one that others found--perhaps had had too much beer already by the time I got to it. Distinguished by its bubbliness, but it didnít hang on in the finish.

One of my favorites,citrus,spicy,floral,balanced nicelt for 8.5%..So smooth if youíre not careful you might be seeing pink elephants too! I persoanlly avoid it on tap,looses itís life and aroma not too emntion carbonation.
