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.

Yellow beer with white and long head. Interesting and complex aroma. Coriander, citrics and clove. In mouth it presents a soft taste. Slightly bitter and a sligth sour mouthfeel. Carbonation is noticeable, alcohol is perfectly integrated. Low-medium body. Very nice Belgium beer. Filip

Pours a clear, light straw colour. Quite minimal white head and high on carbonation. The prominent smell I am picking up is toffee and floral notes. This is a 9% beast, and it shows in the taste. I think the taste is very heavy on alcohol and the aftertaste is somewhat bitter. I think there are many better choices.

"sea of white foam red, ornage/yellow beer, highly carbonated, nice prickly mouthfeel. smells and tastes of spices...pepper...somewhat sweet with a gentle bittering in the finish. nicely done, but probably not worth the $$$."

Alpha10 (342) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
2014/10/12 - Pours a translucent yellow/gold colour with a big, soapy, white head that quickly reduces to a lasting surface film. Minimal lacing. Aroma is yeast, banana, citrus, spice, mild bubblegum and light biscuit. Taste is yeast, spice, banana, citrus, sweet apricot, light vanilla and a hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is medium and slick with biting carbonation and a mildly sweet, slightly warming finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
