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.

11 oz draft, Bavarian Lodge Lisle, IL. Medium amber color, slightly hazy with a fairly thin head. Lots of yeast is the first impression in the nose. Followed up with general citrus, bubblegum, banana and a hint of spice. Maybe clove? Medium in body and well carbonated. Surprisingly good.

Poured a thick gold with some sediment. The head was thick and white. The aroma was sweet and dry, citrusy, sour, some alcohol. The flavor was dry, citrusy, waxy hops, yeasty, sour, and alcohol. Very dry in the mouth from hop and alcohol.

Garigar (17) - Donostia-San Sebastin, SPAIN - JUN 28, 2007
Really good with uncured and slightly cured cheese. Fruity and strong in the troat, shows it high alcohol content as a balanced part of its taste. Might feel slightly too acidic.

hapjydeuce (999) - Carlsbad, California, USA - JUN 25, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy light gold color with a copious head that lasts with good lacing. Aroma dominated by pear, banana, Belgian yeast, some coriander and spices. Flavor is somewhat one-dimensional, quite fruity with more pear and orange peel. Ends with good carbonation on the palate. Not bad.

unibaren (157) - 8000 rhus C, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2007
Bottle. Spicy aroma with notes of yeast and bubblegum. Lightly hazy yellow colour. White head that disappeared so fast, that I thought the glass might have been quite dirty, but I can see that others also report the fast disappearing head. Full, fresh taste with lots of spices. Aftertaste has some bitterness and lots of alcohol. A really nice beer let down by its fast disappearing head.

Spicy pour. Very popular in Belgium pubs in my area. Nice on the palate, light on the gut. It is spicy in terms of flavorings but not the hot kind.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 15, 2007
Fruity aroma and a nice lasting head. Lots of sediment; the bottle has been stored for a year but tastes okay. Sweet, fruity and yeasty taste. Good, but not exceptional.
