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.

Bought this one because of the pink elephants on the cover. What a great choice it was. Nice golden brown color and almost had a Hefeweizen flavor that I found to be incredible. This is one I will go back for when I visit BevMo again.

Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2008
Bottle 0,33l. Golden brown colored. Almost no head. Very carbonated. Unclear. Fruity and spicy aroma. Sparkling tongue feeling. Sourish, bitter flavor. Fruity finish dominated by apricot.

Pours a crisp golden color with a fluffy white head that leaves a great deal of lacing along the side of the glass as it goes down. Smells of honey, grapefruit and bubblegum. The beer itself is actually a tale of two beers. The front is very sweet with a lot of esters, yeast and citrus fruit. However, I was not a fan of the finish at all. You get a tinny metallic flavor going down and it almost seems like it comes from the can. A decent beer but there are much better Belgians out there.

bullevard (4) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 27, 2008 does not count
The pour was very nice, a light amber color, rather cloudy with a small white head that stuck around for a while. The smell was hoppy, not too fruity, maybe some citrus but it didn’t really have that fruity Belgian smell. The first taste I had made me think I wasn’t going to be able to drink 26 oz. of this stuff. I didn’t really like it, it tasted strong and finished with a clove flavor. The flavors really turned me off. It was better as I drank more, but not overly so.

Svesse (8731) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2008
(Bottle, Bishop’s Arms, Vasagatan, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2008) Golden yellow colour with big, frothy, white head. Fruity nose with green apples, citrus and sweetish notes of honey. Fruity, malty, sweet taste with marzipan, green apples and lots of fiery sweetness. Slightly spicy, citrussy notes in the finish. Sweetish and sharp. Alcohol shines through a bit too much, but it’s still a rather nice beer.

sharp bitter citrus nose with a yeasty flavor tthats sharp but smooth. sort of "shallow" over all.

I expected a lot more considering the expense of the packaging. But, this is only a mediocre BSA.

3.6
madquacker (1165) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2008
Excellent beer. Fluffy head. Lemon and lime with a beautiful number of floaters. Goes down very well. Misleading bottle to what is inside.

stef7321 (15) - Williamsburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 22, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Not too shabby. What a Duvel and a St. Bernardus Tripel would taste like if you put them in a blender. Pronounced yeast, very slight hints of tartness. Not my favorite, but not bad either.

3.8
Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2008
pours a gold with full fluffy white head. sweet smooth malt aroma, sweet yeast front with smooth mild background. smooth light presence, and very good.
