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.

Smells very clean, mostly pils malt and mild hints of fruit, strawberry, cantaloupe, peach. Tastes the same, but builds from dry malt flavor to sweet fruit then dry again on crisp finish.

From bottle. Served a bit cold at abort 7 degrees C. Pours golden with a big white head. Lemon aroma at first. As it warms up, the belgian yeast aromas become more pronounced. Taste slightly sweet with a bit of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

10/1/2007 2:37:58 PM Bottle at home. Really enjoyed this one. Murky color, lemony scent. Very tall head and quite carbonated. Sweet, fruit tastes of citrus and apples but also quite punchy. A spicy, solid finish. Classy ceramic bottle with a cool elephant. I’m a fan.

Spora niezbyt trwała piana, średnio oczkowa, barwa złota, lekko opalizująca, piwo ładnie pracuje w szkle. Zapach z butelki delikatny, sporo estrów owocowych - brzoskwinia, żółta porzeczka, białe winogrono, są też delikatne cytrusy z cytryną i mandarynką, troszkę nut trawiastych - fajnie i rześko. W smaku jasne winogrona są na pierwszym planie, przywodzi to wręcz na myśl białe półsłodkie wino, gdzieś w tle dojrzałe jabłko papierówka, lekka kwiatowość, świetnie skontrowaną niską, ale przyjemnie ziołową goryczką. Wysycenie nieco powyżej średniego, dodające lekkości i pijalności. Alkoholu praktycznie nie czuć. Jest lekkie żelazo, potwierdzone w teście skórnym, ale nawet nieźle się to tu komponuje, dodając swego rodzaju cierpkości w odczuciu na języku ;) Świetne piwo, bardzo pijalne, ułożone i zbalansowane. Jak do tej pory najlepsze ze wszystkich piw z tego browaru. Pół punktu odejmuję za minimalną, ale jednak, metaliczność...

Aroma: Yeast, fruit, herbs, sweet, coriander, orange, Appearance: Slightly turbid yellow/gold beer with a fast appearing, and fast disappearing, head. Taste/Palate: Starts with a beautiful melange of herbs, moves to a sweet and wheat fresh finish. A lot of carbonation.

Achel (205) - GREECE - AUG 9, 2015
Hazy yellow colour with huge bubbly/foamy head. Sweet yeasty and malty/fruitish hints. Strong sweet wheat in flavour with malty hints. Also some notes of alcohol, but they fit the beer good. Sweet wheaty aftertaste
