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.

One of my favorite Belgian beers. Peppery aroma with a bit of spice in the flavor as well. Full body with a long finish. Hints of banana in this one as well. Love this beer!

Lilja (1944) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2015
Fat på Söder om Småland. Smak och doft av nektar, örter, honung, jäst med toner av karamell och torkad frukt. Fina lena smaker, välbalanserad, lagom sötma, fin beska. Riktigt gott!

OntBeerDrinker (471) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
Got a bottle a week back, it leaked in bag a bit and smells unopened like a super skunky pale lager(awful)(might of been on side in trunk at some point, dunno why it leaked)8.7% on the bottle I have: Cap had no hiss and came off way too easily. No head and just a little carbination.(My bottle got messed up or something shortly after I bought it and put in trunk)Everything is just light on it, light fruityness, light spice if any, light sweetness, no taste of the % but effects are felt from it and makes me feel warm drinking it. That skunked smell is long gone. Something happened to my bottle and I think its affecting the review but you can tell its a Belgium beer. I had better and worse. Might need an un leaked bottle with head to fully know this one.

SkillsFactory (22) - ITALY - APR 9, 2015
Color oro pallido, leggermente opalescente, schiuma bianca mediamente persistente non molto densa. Al naso prevalgono i toni speziati e i lieviti; elegante. Al palato corpo medio, un po' oleosa, molto carbonata, parte dolce per finire amara con una leggera nota alcolica. Speziata ma molto equilibrata.

16erBlech (181) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - APR 4, 2015
0,33l bottle from beerbottle.eu. Despite the high ABV this beer isnt boozy. Taste is full and warm. Not bad although I couldnt drink this all day of course.

tia (1110) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2015
Tap @ Pour. Surprised I have never rated this. Yellow with lasting white head and generous lacing. Smells fresh and coriandery and grassy. Tastes spiced and grassy but well balanced. Not too sweet, smooth.

sudomorph (804) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 3, 2015
330 np bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a foamy, two finger, white head. Carbonation streaming from the center of the tulip glass. Aroma has big notes of bubblegum, candy sugar, clove/spice, and slight citrus. Taste is balanced. Bubble gum, Belgian yeast, spice, citrus, and a short ending. Medium body with a high, effervescent carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a really nice beer. Solid spice notes with candy sugar, yeast, and and citrus.
