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.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful orange beer with a whitish coloured head. Lots of sediment rising from the bottom of the tumbler. Nice bubbles, decent carbonation. Spicy, tart aromas, yeasty, some alcohol presence. Very nicely balanced nose. Fruity, slightly acidic taste with lots of sweetness. Rather tart flavour. Very drinkable though despite its high alcohol content. Faint bitter finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Draught - Pours hazy golden with a short white head that stays briefly. Aromas of yeast, pears, apples, and peppery spice. Flavor is yeasty as well with pears, apples, some apricot sweetness sneaks in before the corriander and a pinch of pepper at the finish. Palate is well carbonated but pretty smooth. Nice tripel!

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2007
draft, map room. brown/orange with a clear head. lighter than i was expecting, but opaque. kinda turned off by the aroma, its got a bit of belgian funk, and a bit of metal too. it has this one off-aroma that a lot of belgian tripels, but not american tripels seem to have. its certainly meant to be there, but i dont like it. flavor is candi sugar front end, then carbonation, then a bit of alcohol but a nice round finish. actually i like the finish a lot.
