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.

MoritzF (9959) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2007
(33cl bottle) Unclear, golden colour with loads of particles swimming around and a big foamy white head. Moderately yeasty, sweet malty and slightly vinous fruity (citrus, peach) nose with light grainy and biscuit-like accents and a noticeable dash of alcohol. Sweet flavour with hints of acidity, full bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly grainy malty and fruity taste with an early arriving alcoholic strength; medium-dry sweet and slightly bitter brandy-like finish. Not to be overrated.

Well, the day have come - I have delirium tremens, but luckily on bottle... The head is huge, white and lasting and the color is warm golden. The aroma is spicy and the mouthfeel is prickly. The flavour is rather sweet and a bit weird... it’s citrussy like dour drops and it has a coriander note. the finish is rather long and slightly bitter and acidic, and the alcohol is clearly there.

zombywoof (467) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Instant aroma of bread, herbs, citrus, banana. Sweet flavor with spice and orange. Not as spectacular as I was led to believe when I ordered it-still decent enough. Nice buzz and smooth.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle, #333 Golden yellow pour with huge white head. Aroma of fruit and a bit of citrus. Flavor of fruit and spice. Overall, not close to as complex as I was hoping for the "best beer in the world." Definitely a good brew, but just an average Belgian that didn’t live up to expectations.

Berserkir (56) - New York, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Golden color with yeasties clearly visible. Tall white head. Aroma is orange, yeast and a hint of a spice I can’t put my finger on. Taste is orange and spice.

dkazuk (248) - winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
330 ml bottle.
Pours a murky golden yellow with a nice white head. The aroma is fruit and yeast. Refreshing fruity spritzy taste followed by a warmer biscuity flavour and a dry citrus bitter after. Average belgian ale but with a kickass bottle.

A nice little blond. Very acidic tasting, some spice and coriander. Pretty good for a mass market belgian.

RicksSportsBar (9) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2007 does not count
A wonderful belgian blond with orangish appearance and bubbly palate. Careful though it’ll get you heavily intoxicated.......and boy...we wouldn’t want that ha ha
