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.

A: Pours golden/amber crystal clear beer with a huge capuccino-like white head! Quite a treat to see. Lots of lacing and a lot of particles floating around. S: Fruity esters, banana and honey. Some floral notes. T: Esters at the front again with a distinct note of apple. Grassy, citrusy, honey-sweet. Wet hops dry toward the end of the sip, coupled by warming booze and a hint of pepper. M: Medium-to-light bodied, pretty refreshing. O - An excellent beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sparf (206) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2016
Doftar tropiska frukter, bubbeltuggummi – dock ingen artificiell arom – samt kandisocker och svagt av örter, jäst och alkohol. Gul, klar vätska och ganska mycket skum som sjunker undan snabbt. En lätt smak, jästkomplex och med en tät sötma. Mer kraft än elegans. Kroppen är ganska tunn och brygden skummig. Eftersmaken har en trevlig beska och alkoholvärme.

Wojo21 (145) - Pelplin, POLAND - JUN 24, 2016
Aromat niezbyt intensywny, aczkolwiek przyjemny. Guma do żucia, ziołowość, zielone jabłko. Barwa złocista, zamglone, ładna piana, choć szybko opada. W smaku zbalansowane, drożdże, banany przyprawy. Goryczka niezbyt wysoka choć zalegająca. Dobrze pijalne, zdadziecko dobrze.

McSherman (484) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2016
Goldgelb, klar mit weißem Schaum. Hefig, malzig, leicht süß, recht sprudelig. Ingwer und Pfeffernoten bringen eine leichte Schärfe.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a pale golden color and clear with a fizzy white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, fruit, light malt and spice. Taste is Belgian yeast, fruit, spice, hints of clove, pepper, and floral notes. Deceptively drinkable.

darbeer75 (340) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Aroma: yeasty and fruity with slightly earthy undertones; Appearance: clear, golden straw pour with fluffy white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: smooth, fruity and yeasty; seems more like a tripel than a strong ale; Overall: very good; would buy again when looking for a solid Belgian.

WaddlingPlatypus (64) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Pale yellow, sparkling, with a bubble white head. Haylage and strawberry aroma, with a touch of elderflower. Peaches and elderflower are most prominent in the flavour, with a slight aspirin bitterness that follows. Very little aftertaste.

Fules (477) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 16, 2016
Hatalmas és nagyon tartós, hófehér habja van. Színe gyönyörű világos borostyán. Illata nagyon intenzív, fűszeres, borsos, kissé korianderes. Íze finom fűszeres, borsos - korianderes, robosztusan, de nem túl intenzíven kesernyés. A korty végén pici pezsgős hatás érezhető. Utóíze hosszan tartó keserűvel indít, enyhe torkot maró fűszeres mellékízzel, picike savanyúval és édessel. Robosztusan testes, nehéz sör. Az alkohol jól el van rejtve, de azért érezni hogy erős sör.

matty (337) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2016
25 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold color with a thick white head that lasts for the entire glass. Leaves some nice lacing, but not much. Aroma is fairly weak but there is some yeast and malt which is pleasant. Medium body, lots of carbonation on the tongue. Taste is a great combination of yeast and light malts, not much of a hop presence. Finish is slightly tart. Excellent beer!!!
