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.

Draft in Ghent. Very lively carbonation with a nice head. Slightly hazy gold coloring. A really nice beer all the way around. Nice and refreshing for warm weather.

Pours a cloudy and slightly flocculent gold with a brief but impressive head and some lace. Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, some light fruitiness, and hops. Tastes sharp and satisfying - definitely some hops in there, but simply for bittering. Warm, open aftertaste. Overcarbonated and a bit on the thin side, but slightly creamy. Probably one of the better tripels Ive had - fruity and well-balanced. Thanks to Robin for the bottle - and what a pretty bottle!

Pours with a big white frothy head. It has a big banana taste along with fruity spices in it. It finishes dry with high carbonation with a alcohol finish. It has huge chunks that form a nice layer on the bottom of the glass.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2007
Rated 7/18/07. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold with a large snow-white head. Patchy lacing all the way down the glass. Aroma is fruity, with banana and yeast being the dominant smells, followed by mild spices and alcohol. Flavor is essentially the same, with banana showing strong, and spicy, yeasty, alcohol soaked bread obviously present. Smooth body that is not too syrupy. I like this one much better than the Nocturnum, as it is less sweet and more complex.

gmcase (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2007
bottle. mine poured blonde unlike the pic, with lots of tiny carb bubbles like in trappist ales. Somewhere between hefes and light trappist ales this beer has its own thing going. Fruity in smell and taste. Sweet but not anoying. Banana and raisins. Love the carbonation for this beer. Great mouthfeel.

Tap @ Peculier Pub, NYC. Pours a golden color with a lacy white head. Aroma is yeasty, with fruit, clove, and sugar noticed as well. The beer is citrus and spice at the beginning, and other spice, yeast, banana, and bread notes become evident as you drink the beer. A little too carbonated, which may hide some of the flavorings. On the whole, very good, but not great.

jlf278 (288) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2007
In 12 oz. bottle. A perfumy, but mild aroma with cane sugar, yeast and bananas. This very light and clear beer is deceptively hiding a punch of taste and alcohol. The first sip is surprising and riveting. However, as you move Delirium Tremens about your mouth, the carbonation cascades with a blossoming of floral sweetness. The finish is sublime. Although perhaps a bit too carbonated to really notice all the flavors abound in this delightful brew, the effervesence embodies the great jovial character trapped in such a stylish vessel.

On tap at Mile Square in Hoboken. From the sweet smell to the light bodied taste, this beer has continued to amaze me whenever i drink it. Probably my 2nd favorite beer of all time.

Magtek32 (76) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2007
On tap at ronnies. Hazy orange amber appearance with one finger of thick white head and nice consistent lacing. Aromas of yeast, malt, fruit (apricot, orange) and spices. A fruity/spicy taste with notes of orange, pepper and some malt. Lots of carbonation resulting in a good mouthfeel.
