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 from Bon Repas. Nice honey gold colour, fluffy white head with staying power. Decent yeast aroma, spicy phenols, fruity. Flavour is similar, fruitiness like pear and nectarine nestling amongst bready malt and yeast. It’s so easy to drink, a light fizz before a creamy middle and dry finish. Very refreshing with only a slight hint of the ABV. Really nice.

Kullankeltainen, kirkas ja kupliva olut, jonka seassa leijuu hiivapartikkeleita. Valkoista vaahtoa aika vähän ja katoaa nopeasti, eikä jätä juurikaan pitsiä. Tuoksu hedelmäinen ja makea, jollain tapaa hyvinkin tuttu tuoksu muista belgioluista. Myös maussa viljaisuutta, hedelmää ja jälkimaussa pientä katkeruutta. Myös mausteisuutta on mukavasti mukana ja jää tuntumaan kielenpäälle. Ehkä tämä on vähän pliisu parhaimpiin maanmiehiinsä verrattuna, mutta varsin mainio kuitenkin.

hauxe (444) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2016
Pours hazy gold from a ceramic bottle. The aroma is banana and bread. Taste is banana, bubble gum and spice, notably pepper and clove. Reminds one of a wheat beer, although the wheat malt is notably absent. Goes down dry, medium bodied, leaves a yeasty and bubble gum sweet aftertaste. The warming presence that comes with 8.5 % abv is notably absent. Compared to a brash Duvel, same style and same ABV, this is a more subtle experience. Very good stuff.

Muy buen sabor, no parece que tenga esa graduación, parece mucho más suave. Color dorado y con espuma. De mis favoritas.

Cask served in Delirium tulip glass. Golden colour, average head but produces nice lacing. Quite a cool and fresh beer. Aroma is fresh fruit- apricot, lemon. High carbonation. Taste- bitter with some sweetness, not as sweet as I expected. Flavours are fresh spice/herbs, with floral and grassy hops. Nothing that unique but very drinkable. At 8.5% the alcohol is masked well though, feels quite light.

Nice bottle! gives you the feeling you are in for something special. a very big white head that dissapears rather quickly for its size. hazy golden colour. Solid beer, but not part of belgiums finest.
