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.

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.

W aromacie na starcie dominuje żelazo i nuty zbożowe, po przelaniu z butelki pojawia się ogromna, gęsta piana, nawet jak opadnie i tak jest obfita, bardzo bogato zdobi szkło. Kolor złoty, lekko mętny Bardzo mocne wysycenie. Smak to żelazo i wyraźne nuty pszeniczne, z czasem pszenica zaczyna dominować, żelazo zanika, pojawia się lekka słodycz w tle. Alkohol dobrze ukryty, pijalność bardzo wysoka. Niby nie ma w tym piwie nic nadzwyczajnego, ale pije się je bardzo dobrze, wciąga. Pierwsze wrażenie niezbyt ciekawe, ale z czasem piwo nabiera smaku, chce się je pić jeszcze i jeszcze

Wspaniałe piwo. Czuć wanilię i lekki karmel, aromat słodkawy z prawie niezauważalną goryczką.

njnut (395) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 9, 2016
Poured from bottle into tulip a gold with white head that disappeared quickly. No lace just a ring. Aroma was a yeasty malt, a bit of hay/dry grass. Taste was crisp malt. Mildly bitter with medium malt sweetness. Alcohol pretty much totally hidden. Yeast lingers into finish. Very easy drinker. Well done.

Great beer. Golden hazy looking, with sweet, but strong taste of spices and fruits. Refreshing and easy to drink for a high alcool content beer.

Light gold colored beer with high head. Very nice, malty aroma. A bit fruity and vanilla. Low bitterness, medium to high sweetness. Warm in throat, highly carbonated. Light to medium body.

One of my all-time favorite Belgian beers. Strong taste, though not too strong, and a very nice aftertaste with hoppy tones here and there.
