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.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2007 07 Bomber from GF. Cloudy golden color with large, fluffy white head. Aroma is very spicy with yeast and some alc. Flavor matched the aroma to a T. Medium body with some creaminess. A very satisfying beer and always good to have around.

jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Pours hazy golden with a foamy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, yeast, and a bit of spice. Slightly spicy flavor, with a bit of fruity sweetness, and some barely noticeable herbal/grassy hops. Palate is fairly average and light bodied, but the lively carbonation and lingering flavor makes up for the lack of body a bit. Pleasant but light in all aspects, still fairly enjoyable though.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Pours a cloudy dark golden color with a huge fluffy white head and lots of sediment floating in the trappist glass. The scent was yeasty and gummy with some clove and spice making thier way through. I wasnt very impressed by this beer. It was thin on the palate and didnt have much in the way of mouthfeel.

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2007
Hazy pale body with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is fairly sweet and fruity with peach, apple, banana, grapes, bread and cotton candy. The flavor is lightly sweet, cotton candy, peach, golden raisins, banana and herbal. Medium body is soft, but thin with a slightly astringent, medicinal finish.

Pours golden color with white head. Slight fruit in the aroma. Alcohol a little more prominent than it should be.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Pours copper with a nice white head. Smells of sugar, lots of spice, some citrus, light fruit, some caramel. Tastes sweet with some bananas and cloves initially giving way to rosey citrussy elements as the beer warms. Mouthfeel is full bodies with a light tingly peppery finish.

cheap (5635) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 On tap at the Sharp Edge Bistro. Ubiquitous pale yellow american lager color and appearance. Creamy head. Mild sweet sugar of hardtack candy aroma. On the palate this stuff comes across rather mild at first. Reminds a bit of regular Augustijn. Opague lacing on the glass, completely covers the nakedness of this brew. Interesting, does not get in your face with the 9% alky, very well controlled. These Belgies really know how to do it when comes to hiding the alky, hardly ever do they get in yer face. Finish is rather mild and better behaved than the finish I experienced with the Augustijn. Mild candy like aftertaste. And now I notice that there has been a lack of carbonation during the session.

Ingy (100) - candler, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2007
bottle. Haxy golden with small, quickly disipating head. Tangerine, spice, yeast, apricots. Alcohol is well hidden (although my typing skills seem to be suffering). Quite good, although not sure it lives up to the hype. Great name. Will try again.
