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.

Bottle. Poured a light amber with a small white fizzy head that dissapated rapidly and had fair lacing. The aroma was light of bread like malts. a piney hop and a sweet yeast with mild notes of bannana’s and citrus. It tasted light and slightly astringent at first and finished lightly bitter with a hint of bannana and a mild alcohol flavor that lingered on the palate for a while. Mouthfeel was very light in body and watery in texture with a nice soft carbonation. Overall a nice begian ale that has a mild kick to it.

Several glasses from tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Beautiful clear golden with white head. Fruity smell, also Belgian yeast. Taste is yeasty, bubblegum and some banana notes. Medium carbonation, rather dry finish. Love it!

Slightly hazy golden body, minimal white head vanishes almost instantly.Banana, peach, dough aroma, smells like fruit cake basically. Taste is yeasty, sweet, slightly sour. Average body, fizzy carbonation and creamy texture. Pretty solid beer.

Hazy goden color, huge staying white head. Fruity aroma, lots of apricots, malts and yeast. Taste is very malty, spicy, vanilla yoghurt, banana, citrusy hoppiness. Very fruity. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. My kind of BSA.

TorbenJensen (528) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
Triple with distinct aromas of citrus and lots of cilantro. Lots of floating yeast residues in the glass, The flavor of sweet peach, pineapple, coriander and light citrus towards the end. Large bodied fruit hangs long in the mouth and it is a triple which is slightly sweeter than what i’m used to. In this case, it may not be the most suitable for dishes because of the sweetness. But as an aperitif, it is perfect
