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.

33cl bottle, pours a crystal clear golden color with a lacy head that lingers. Aroma of yeast and light malts. Belgian tripel flavor, a bit alcoholic with citrus, yeast forward. A bit light bodied for the alcohol content. The kind of beer that after a few sips you forget how strong it is.

LordBrew (161) - Ziemnice, POLAND - FEB 14, 2016
Aromat - drożdże, landrynka + zielone jabłuszko, intensywnie i przyjemnie, tyle w temacie. Piwo wykipiało z butelki bez wyraźnych przyczyn. Kolor jasny blond, lekko zamglony, piana elegancka, śnieżnobiała, drobniutka, trzyma się i zdobi szkło. Smak - wybitnie ukryty alkohol, przyjemna chmielowo-alkoholowa goryczka, solidne wysycenie, bardzo pijalne, posmak długi, przyprawowy, lekko rozgrzewający. Wybitne Belgian Blond/Strong.

pas grand chose à ajouter, la note parle d’elle-même. Première dégustation avant 2003 quand elle titrait à 9%, la réduction à 8.5% fait moins peur et la rend plus agréable.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2016
Clear veiled straw, almost golden color. Extra foamy white 4 finger head lasting around 10 minutes and creating a foam island that you could eat with a spoon. Nice thick legs and powerful activity. Swirling the glass easily recreates a 1 to 2 finger head. Aromas and flavors of citrus, fruits, grains, toasty bread, and herbal spices. Pleasantly balanced flavors and intensity with some fruity orange sharpness and apple sweetness, but with a slightly vinous and metallic feel. Slick light body with champagne like carbonation. Balanced finish and well intensified, quite clean, ending with a dry spicy clove like aftertaste. Overall : Delicious, fresh, warming and almost not feeling like a strong beer. Great craft.

330ml Flasche. Gelbe Farbe mit flachem Schaum. Süsser alkoholischer Getreide und Hopfenduft. Auch im Geschmack ist es mir zu süss ubd alkoholisch. Sicherlich ein belgischer Klassiker, aber nicht ganz mein Fall.
