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.

Bungalo22 (326) - Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA - JAN 14, 2008
Very strong aroma, which I liked: spice and fruit. A golden pour but it was overcarbonated and even with a good pour I got a big head. A very tasty beer.

It had a cloudy yellow body with fluffy white head. The flavor and aroma was of lemons, and was very tasty.

Explosion of carbonation. The body was cloudy and golden. A crisp, invigorating finish.

3.9
armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 10, 2008
Hazy golden color, a big, stable white head with spicy and freaky nose. Complex flavour of the yeasts, the good balanced hop and a lot of spicy cookies. Light aftertaste with pink elephants in the horizon.

3.5
AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JAN 9, 2008
75 cl. bottle with a feb 2004 bottling date. Clear straw color with a 2 finger white head. Spicy sweet smell of black pepper, cloves, and musk. Strong taste with the same peppers, cloves, and sweet spices with a dash of salt. I once read a book calling this the best beer in the world oh my, how times have changed. May 2004

Ratman197 (15620) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2008
Bottle poured a clear gold with a large lasting white head. Aromas of fruitiness, straw, yeast and a hint of spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of candied pears, cookies, yeast and light spice with a crisp lightly sweet finish.

johndavidj99 (125) - Dallas, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2008 Foggy golden color with a nice white head that leaves lacing. Citrus/pineapple nose with a slight alcohol smell. Very good beer! Malty sweetness with yeast overtones. Did not see any pink elephants after drinking however. Yum!!

3.1
demdeac40 (299) - Etowah, North Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle poured into a Tulip. Pours a hazy straw color with small head and decent lacing. Low score on Appearance because of the chunkies floating around. Otherwise it has all the characteristics of a nice light Belgian. Aroma is yeasty with a touch of citrus. Flavor follows suit. Might have to re-rate this at some point.

3.1
TikiE (368) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Nice belgian ale. Smells great and taste good too. Only I thought it was a bit to carbonated, it kinda tingled a bit while I drank it.
