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.

unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Bottle. Spicy aroma with notes of yeast and bubblegum. Lightly hazy yellow colour. White head that disappeared so fast, that I thought the glass might have been quite dirty, but I can see that others also report the fast disappearing head. Full, fresh taste with lots of spices. Aftertaste has some bitterness and lots of alcohol. A really nice beer let down by its fast disappearing head.

Spicy pour. Very popular in Belgium pubs in my area. Nice on the palate, light on the gut. It is spicy in terms of flavorings but not the hot kind.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2007
Fruity aroma and a nice lasting head. Lots of sediment; the bottle has been stored for a year but tastes okay. Sweet, fruity and yeasty taste. Good, but not exceptional.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Finally got around to actually rating this one. Golden color with a bready-fruit aroma. Taste is a bit yeasty and sugary with lots of fruit and good malts. Always a good one, but boring compared to others in the style.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
750 mL bottle. Yellow amber with champagne bubbles and a big fluffy white head. Aroma of banana, orange, and yeast. Bright lively palate. Tastes of honey and fruit with a bready slightly alcoholic finish. Pretty good.

eyesandsmiles (179) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUN 14, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2007 Smells fairly unpleasant. Somewhat offensive name for a beer. Tastes too carbonated. The taste of fizz is too prevalent. Not much beneath it.

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUN 12, 2007
750 ml. Pours a fluffed, fanatical white head. Smells of affluent grains, tiny yeast, and trouble. Very typical of the Belgian Strongs. Mouthfeel is encompassing yet sinister with balanced pepper in the back. This beer never fails to please.
