Bottle Conditioned.

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.

Gul tåkete med høyt tynt hvitt skum. Korn, sitron og blomster. Lett bitter med noe søt syrlig sitrus.

Ikke mun type øl, men god smak og fylde og en klassisk hvete smak. Men totalt en god øl.

Characteristic, Belgian malty aroma, promising a strong taste and longer on the palate but it tricked me with a fresh, citrus like taste and plenty of carbonation. Complex, yet simple. Try it and you’ll know what I mean.

33 cl snifter. Pours a frothy weak white head, slightly cloudy and unclear golden orange colour. Smells belgian malts, very nice yeast, apples, honey, light funk. Tastes malty, grainy, yeasty, fruity, grape, spices, light citrus. Perfect sweet amount, with low/medium bitterness afterwards, hints of tartness. Creamy and silky texture, medium bodied, average carbonation. It’s best feauture is surely the great flavour balance, which makes this beer really drinkable and appreciableleather. Great Belgian

A very tasty blonde ale. You can taste the strength of the beer but it has a crisp and refreshing aftertaste

Splendida e particolare birra. L’aspetto è meraviglioso. Giallo splendente dalla schiuma bianca e abbastanza persistente. Al naso si percepisce di tutto: spezie, erbaceo, floreale, alcool... Anche in bocca è un’esplosione di sapori. Si avverte un deciso fruttato e anche del miele. Molto bene anche le spezie. Nella parte finale del sorso emerge l’amaro, ma mai invasivo. Birra dai tanti aromi e sapori, che conserva tutti fino alla fine e che non stanca. Va bevuta non appena tolta dal frigo (ma neanche aspettando troppi minuti). Non si può non provarla, almeno per la sua fama.

29 July 2014, tap. Yellow, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is faint bubble gum, rock candy, mild alcohol. Med body and moderately fizzy. Noticeable alcohol, some peppery hints, sugary, rock candy. Pretty good.

Aromat: słodowy, korzenny, lekko owocowy, w tle czuć alkohol Ogromna początkowo piana, dość szybko opada zostawiając lekki kożuch. W smaku słodowość, zmieszana z lekko pikantną korzennością, owocowe posmaki i nieźle jak na ten woltaż ukryty alkohol. Ogromne nagazowanie wymusza powolną degustację. Dobre, solidne piwo.

Enjoyed this beer, honestly I would not have tried it had it not been the wonderful name and great bottle. Strong flavor, and a great look.
