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.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle. Decent aroma of fruit and spice. Bitter also. Cloudy appearance with a good frothy head. Flavour of spice, coriander. A little metallic. Great to drink considering the percentage which is always a good thing. Expected more, would like to try this on tap.

Golden yellow with a fizzy head, highly carbonated, lots of Champagne-like bubbles doing their thing. Aroma of citrus fruit, and yeasty goodness. This is one flavorful beer, fruity and refreshing, some spice, nice balance of sweetness and dryness. Overall I enjoyed very much, well done!

Clear golden yellow color. Big fizzy white head. Fruity refreshing flavor and well carbonated. Yeast and citrus aroma. Slight funky flavor and citrus fruit, orange and lemon. Looks like this ones going to be thin but surprisingly full bodied. Slight sweetness.

realization (1) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2007 does not count
Pours golden with heavy carbonation. Has "floaty things" that rise and fall and swirl around, fueled by the carbonation. Thick, foamy head that lingers (pour it slowly or you wont be able to take a sip for a few minutes). Yeast and orange peel nose, and similar taste, but with spice. Drying, and quite warming for the amount of alcohol. Not what I was expecting.

Prcaus (159) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Draught from Eulogy Tavern in Olde City Philadelphia- Light Dark Brown coloring with aroma is a nice herbal hop armoa with sweet malts. Warms and finishes well. No long after taste.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - NOV 9, 2007
33cl bottle. Pours a deep, hazy gold with a thick white head that fades slowly and leaves streaks of lace on the glass. The aroma is strong and lovely - the herbal smell of hops balances the sweet malt aromas of dates and treacle. There are notes of yeast and fruit (orange peel and ears), too. The flavor starts dry and bittersweet - fruity and a little grainy, with a good bit of alcohol. The middle of the tongue continues the trend: perfumy delicate hops with hints of citrus zest balance out sweet, fruity, and complex golden malts. The alcohol seems to build as it goes down, and it is very strong in the finish - and warming. The finish is a bit grainy and the aftertaste is grassy and full of ethanol (fiery burps!). There are also flavors of higher (fusel?) alcohols across the tongue. The mouthfeel is medium in body and crisply, though not particularly strongly, carbonated. Overall - not quite as nice as I remember it (but it has been years since I last tasted it...)

750ml. Good standard BSA that you can get anywhere. Im pretty sure Id just call it a tripel - belgian yeast, orange peel, bubbly.
