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.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - OCT 27, 2007
A light fruity aroma from this pale-colored ale. A fruity yeast flavor, that seems both sweet and tart at the same time. Good body.

YK23 (465) - Haifa, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2007
From tap: fruity, some apples, some yeasty sourness, little spicy, pretty sweet but kind of weak tasting and watery. nice but not more then that.

StefanSD (2449) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2007
11oz bottle from Bevmo. Pours a cloudy unfiltered orange gold. The head is sudsy white, large and long lasting with plenty of lacing. The aroma--mind you I have a sinus cold right now so my olfactory capability is not what it should be--has distinct vanilla, peanuts, and sweet yeasts. The flavor is something to behold, initially it is a quite ordinary saison-like Belgian tripel, but it finishes with rich caramel and vanilla. The mouthfeel is full and satisfying, the carbonation is lively and prickly. Overall this is a great beer. Recommended.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2007
330 ml bottle. Dense lasting snowy white one finger head. Pale golden color with a haze. Yellow fruits and alcohol in the aroma. Scents of yeast and earthy hops. Sugery and fruity sweetness is dominating the flavor. Also notes of spices, alcohol and dry malts. Well-bodied and mouthfilling. Strait-forward and tasty.

mmmbeer (1417) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 16, 2007
From ceramic 11.2 oz bottle- immediately upon opening the bottle, it foamed over like champagne. UMM- BEER-PAGNE. Poured with very heavy carbonation, fizzy lacing head, transparent yellow in appearance. Aroma of carbonation, alcohol, yeast, and a little fruit. Hits the mouth with carbonation, a sour taste that goes through the finish. Not impressed. Upon finishing the beer, I took a sip of soda and realized something- the beer had more carbonation than a soda. Pathetic.

tunneler (131) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2007
From bottle. Almost too many flavors for my one-note palate with fruit, spice, sweet and malt all mixed in. Pleasant and well-balanced overall.

Enjoyed from Bottle. Pours with a large head. Citrus and Floral Aroma. A lot of carbonation for a bottle conditioned ale.

KnutAlbert (6754) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle, Oslo Beer Festival. Quite decent ale, the typical Belgian yeasty aroma is present. Fruit and spices, some citrus. Easy drinking beer, but not outstanding.

Lys l. Typisk tripple agtig, men ikke s gragtig som normalt. Strk og bld i smagen. Ikke voldsom duft.
