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.

On-Tap. Sugar, lots of spice, some citrus, light fruit, some caramel. Nice drinking beer, not too strong, well balanced. Nothing really stands-out, but its a solid choice.

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.

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.
