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.

I’ve only discovered this beer a short while ago but after one drink I was addicted to it.

La meilleur bìère au monde avec son goût de miel. Quel délice! Forte mais légère à boire, ce qui est trompeur justement lorsqu’on se lève de sa chaisse. Dégusté lentement, légèrement, en toute fraicheur...

If you need to convince someone of the amazing flavor and beauty of a Belgian Strong Ale, point them to the Delirium. This beer is really fantastic, nice floral notes, good finish, refreshing. Perfect

I’ve always been partial to darker beers until I tried this, By far one of the best beers I’ve ever had. You would never know that it is 8.5 % alcohol.

My favorite beer. It has an aroma like a loaf of bread halfway through baking.

KornDogg (525) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2012 Sweet yeast/ bubblegum aroma. Clear golden body with medium head, nice lacing. Dominant taste of bubblegum, followed by a peppery finish. Crisp, dry balanced with sweetness. Subtle licorice aftertaste... One of the best

This beer is the masterpiece from Belgium. The smell helps you determine the uniqueness, and the taste leaves you in awe of one of the greatest beers in the World. It’s light, yet has a strong pleasant and fruity taste. You must try this beer before you die.

This is one of my absolute favorite beers. I don’t pretend to be an expert, but this beer leaves me smiling every time i drink it.
