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.

Bottled. Hazy golden coloured with a nice white head. Aroma is fruity and belgian yeast. Taste is alcoholic, malty, spicy. Typical belgian beer. Very nice.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2011 11.2 oz bottle. Pours slightly hazy. White head dissipates quickly. Bread and caramel nose, (mint?). First sip is srtong malt. Pear, citrus, some yeast. Light, lingering finish

If you need to convince someone of the amazing flavor and beauty of a Belgian Strong Ale, point them to the Delirium. This beer is really fantastic, nice floral notes, good finish, refreshing. Perfect
