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.

Can smell it as soon as I open the bottle. Pours golden yellow, some sediment. Lots of carbonation. Banana, a bit sour, upfront. Soft, yeast/bread in back. Not bad.

KM (416) - Troms, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Nice muddy orange body. Small thin head. However I dont like the white particles in it. Heavy aroma, sweet and sourish. Heavy weissbier flavour, tastes like a very good, strong classic weissbier. Fresh and a tad yeasty finish, lasts long. No traces of the alcohol. Impressing. (Bl Rock, 29.06.07)

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 discreta, piace moltissimo alla mia ragazza; io non ricordavo di averla assaggiata, ma forse ora mi viene in mente di averlo fatto. Comunque sia mi ha fatto piacere, anche perch avevo mangiato pesante. Comprata da Squillari (2.50), quando vien su la mia ragazza ne compro unaltra. Caramellosissima come al solito, per un poco pi divertente

cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
I had this at the Beer Bistro restaurant in Toronto on June 21, 2007. The aroma was malty and the beer was a golden colour. The first mouthfeel provided a soapy taste to it. Future tastes provided less soap and a clove/nutmeg taste. Overall I was pleasantly surprised as the higher alcohol content wasnt as evident as I thought it would be.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Pours a light golden color with a medium white head. Smells of sweet spices, citrus, and malts. Kind of sweet smelling. Tastes very crisp, good citrus characters come out in the flavor. A little bit spicy, but more fruity than anything. Finish is pretty crisp and refreshing. Good beer.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2007
[346-20070618] Tap @ BeerBistro (Toronto, ON). Light hops, light fruit aroma. Clear, light orange body with no bubbles and a quick creamy white head. Some sort of burnt root vegetable flavouring is a bit malty, like sweet molasses. Medium body. Unique and interesting to try, but seems over-priced and under-impressive...

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Bottle at Capones, recomended by Stegosaurus. Amber pour with some carbonation. Fruity mildly sour aroma with hints of bread. Belgian spices and yeast were detected in the taste. Mildly tart. Not bad.

Hollywoodt (240) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Pours a hazy golden color with minimal white head. Interesting aroma, with citrus, bubblegum and perhaps some banana? The flavor was citrus, and a little spicy. Good carbonation. Not bad.
