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.

I expected a lot more considering the expense of the packaging. But, this is only a mediocre BSA.

Excellent beer. Fluffy head. Lemon and lime with a beautiful number of floaters. Goes down very well. Misleading bottle to what is inside.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Not too shabby. What a Duvel and a St. Bernardus Tripel would taste like if you put them in a blender. Pronounced yeast, very slight hints of tartness. Not my favorite, but not bad either.

On tap this beer is liquid gold I had it with amazing mussels in the french restaurant that has as good a beer selection as food. In a bottle an amazing treat on a snowy night.

From the famously flashy bottle...A hazy bright honey color with particals flouting all around, white head. Strong yeasty aroma, spice, touch of citrus banana. Sweet, yeasty taste, without malt flavor, spicey, with sweet banana or pineapple. . Very light and frizzy feel, yeasty drink. Not bad, not great.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
This is an interesting light, but fruity, flavourful, beer. It is gold, very bubbly, with a huge white head that lasts a long time and leaves a small amount of olace, but not much. The aroma is very fruity and sweet with strong elements of plum and bubblegum with hints of banana and yeast, somewhat reminiscwent of a fruitier hefeweizen but more frtuiy and less dry. The taste is predomintantly lightly sweet with a pronounced, but pleasant, smooth, restrained alcohol body and warmth, especially in the finish. It has the same qualities roughly as the aroma, with a basic German hefeweizen quality of banana and lightly toasted grain (esp. in the finish) but much more fruity, more sweet, and more oily. In some ways it’s kind of a like a fruitier version of a German hefeweizen combined with Rainier Ale. It’s wonderful: exceedingly enjoyable and interesting, yet light and smooth to drink.

Hazy golden with medium white head. Aroma is sweet malty with yeast and fruity notes. Flavor is sweet with spices and alcohol notes.

3.8
Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Golden pour with a thick head. Right up there with my expectations for a Belgian Strong. Aroma was light, sweet and mildly tart. Flavor was corriander and citrus. Alcohol is all but hidden.
