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.

A great beer! Perfect belgium taste for the summer. Not too rich, but not a watery taste. Perfection!

OPIE788 (261) - Ohio, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy hay color. Yeast, malt, banana, orange and a bit of clove flavors. Not a fan of the style.

IPAgutten79 (359) - Skui, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Lys i fargen, mye og høyt skum. Skummet over ved åpning. Aromaen er hovedsakelig gjær, sitron, snev av alkohol og banan. Smaken er samme, samt at den er litt sur. Litt tørr også.

Ik snap alle positieve reacties van dit bier niet. Er zijn maar weinig bieren welke ik niet of tegen mijn zin opdrink, maar dit is er één van. Dit bier heeft een hele rare geur en een hele rare smaak. Het is net alsof je zeep zit te drinken. De kleur en de schuimkraag is prima maar dat is zowat het enige positieve wat ik over dit bier kan zeggen. Dit bier was voor mij een absolute afknapper...

UPDATED: FEB 28, 2014 Absolute favorite beer. Perfect combination of taste strength. Only objection is that the color is slightly too bright.

kaser (2114) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Fruity dank bitter and floral taste. Citrus and grapefruit notes. Very dry finish. Had from bottle. Drank 8 of these in a sitting about 6 years ago and threw up, so just got the balls to try it again today. It is good. Strong.

Profanity (13) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Nice blond a bit hazy belgian ale. Fruity smell of cherry and banana. Hoppy taste with aromas of bitter almond, banana, apricot and citrus. Nice balanced beer in overall.

SarkyNorthener (1420) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from ship in a bottle, Liverpool. Slightly hazy golden amber beer with a small head. Aroma of citrus orange, banana and yeast. Taste is citrus orange, yeast, spice, banana and a nice sweetish finish. Nicely carbonated, Dances the flavours around your tongue. Very good beer.
