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.

11oz bottle from Bevmo. Pours a cloudy unfiltered orange gold. The head is sudsy white, large and long lasting with plenty of lacing. The aroma--mind you I have a sinus cold right now so my olfactory capability is not what it should be--has distinct vanilla, peanuts, and sweet yeasts. The flavor is something to behold, initially it is a quite ordinary saison-like Belgian tripel, but it finishes with rich caramel and vanilla. The mouthfeel is full and satisfying, the carbonation is lively and prickly. Overall this is a great beer. Recommended.

330 ml bottle. Dense lasting snowy white one finger head. Pale golden color with a haze. Yellow fruits and alcohol in the aroma. Scents of yeast and earthy hops. Sugery and fruity sweetness is dominating the flavor. Also notes of spices, alcohol and dry malts. Well-bodied and mouthfilling. Strait-forward and tasty.

From ceramic 11.2 oz bottle- immediately upon opening the bottle, it foamed over like champagne. UMM- BEER-PAGNE. Poured with very heavy carbonation, fizzy lacing head, transparent yellow in appearance. Aroma of carbonation, alcohol, yeast, and a little fruit. Hits the mouth with carbonation, a sour taste that goes through the finish. Not impressed. Upon finishing the beer, I took a sip of soda and realized something- the beer had more carbonation than a soda. Pathetic.

From bottle. Almost too many flavors for my one-note palate with fruit, spice, sweet and malt all mixed in. Pleasant and well-balanced overall.

Enjoyed from Bottle. Pours with a large head. Citrus and Floral Aroma. A lot of carbonation for a bottle conditioned ale.

Bottle, Oslo Beer Festival. Quite decent ale, the typical Belgian yeasty aroma is present. Fruit and spices, some citrus. Easy drinking beer, but not outstanding.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2007
Lys øl. Typisk tripple agtig, men ikke så gæragtig som normalt. Stærk og bld i smagen. Ikke voldsom duft.

Bottle. The huge head produced by a careful pouring made me walk away from it for a while. Despite it being listed as a strong ale, this tasted more like a luxurious tripel that just was bursting with malt, fruit, hops, and elements like a Fantome Saison. I was loving every moment of this yeasty and majestic ale in my 50cl glass. It clearly was inspiring as I started working creatively on different things.

Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - OCT 12, 2007
The 12 oz bottle poured cloudy golden yellow with bits of yeast particules being carried around by the carbonation. Large white billowing head helped fill my duvel tulp The smell of friuty belgian yeast , bublegum and some citrus are great . meduim body easy drinking . Flavors of sweet malts light herbal with more of a citrus after bite than hoppy bitter in the end .I’ll say it again "realy easy to drink" would not take to much for me to drink another one
