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.

Bottle 0.33l from Pivoljub in Ljubljana. Hazy amber liquid with big off white head. Medium body, light carbonation. Taste of yeast, melon, a bit alcoholy with alcoholy finish. Not too sweet and that’s great.

Bottle 0,75 l. Very good aroma. It is spicy and also I can feel a little bit bitterness (but taste is not intrusive) followed by smooth aftertaste. Recommend.

Always a classic. Pours from draft a crystal-clear, pale golden hue with a fluffy head of white. Aroma leads with a blend of apple, pear and soft banana; a swirl draws out bubblegum, honeydew, smoky alcohol, clove and cracked pepper. Alcohol comes through in the flavor more, lending a heat to underlying pear, dried lemon and almond. Medium-light body is like cotton. Finishes mostly dry, with a gently lingering green apple tartness.

This is an interesting beer that is strong and full of life. It is smooth and has a distinct aftertaste.

Martin243 (911) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle at home cold in a Hoegaarden snifter. Bright gold, bubbly, white head. Orangey peppery aroma. Spicy, earthy yeast, warm alcohol flavours. Medium bodied, lively, alcohol a bit too prominent for me.

Cam_Dynamite (105) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2015
Bottle (rad one at that). Pours a bright gold with a very thick white head. Aroma is lemon citrus, spicy. Taste is a bit grassy, banana/mango, tart. Nice beer. Probably not really my style.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Piwo delikatnie mętne, jasno złote. Aromat przyjemny, nienachalnie drożdżowy. W smaku słodowe, bez wyraźnej goryczki. Alkoholowe. Mocno nasycone - z dna duvelowego tulipa szybko szybuje w górę zwarta kolumna bąbelków. Degustacja Delirium Tremens skojarzyła mi się z piciem rosyjskiego szampana (zwanego też sylwestrowym winem musującym) - co dla mnie jest bardzo pozytywnym skojarzeniem. I jakoś tak (podobnie jak szampan) szybko uderza do głowy (czyżby uzasadnienie dla nazwy?). Tak sobie myślę, że już wiem co będę pić na powitanie Nowego Roku. Dobre piwo (chociaż nie smakuje jak piwo). Myślę, że będę do niego wracał przynajmniej raz w roku - dokładnie na samym jego początku.
