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.

riversideAK (6252) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Not alot of aroma. I got a little bit of fruit like apple and pear. A murky golden color with a nice long lasting velvet head. Flavor is an initial crisp hoppiness followed by some sweet malty fruitiness and some mild spices. Pretty smooth for the alcohol. Ends crisp on the palate.

BuckeyeSammy (617) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 This beer has a great golden color. Very quenshing almost apricot hint. Apples, grapes, fruit, low cabonation. Simple beer, yet finishes very well.

mlist55 (210) - media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2007
Aftertaste is stale and nasty. Texture of the beer is extremely syrupy. The carbonation level is much too light for a beer of this strength.

Bottle from Lukas Liquor. Golden pour with large, lasting head. Lots of yeast in the glass. Very easy drinking (dangerously so), hoppy finish. Refreshing. Very nice beer.

grandet (501) - Scranton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2007
One of the first belgiums I had. Pretty impressive at the time but now it has slumped alittle. Very yeasty with a medium body. Pretty well balanced but not as good as alot of other belgiums.
