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.

vadersnightcap (80) - SCOTLAND - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled. highly unusual clay bottle. Amazing sweet, clove, vanilla, fudge, banana and slight cinamon aroma. Very nice full body and alcohol remians well masked. endearing sweet finish with and aromatic spicey twist. Worthy of its repuatation

3.2
Embrouille (2853) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled 33cl. It pours a beautiful orange beer with a whitish coloured head. Lots of sediment rising from the bottom of the tumbler. Nice bubbles, decent carbonation. Spicy, tart aromas, yeasty, some alcohol presence. Very nicely balanced nose. Fruity, slightly acidic taste with lots of sweetness. Rather tart flavour. Very drinkable though despite its high alcohol content. Faint bitter finish.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2007
Draught - Pours hazy golden with a short white head that stays briefly. Aromas of yeast, pears, apples, and peppery spice. Flavor is yeasty as well with pears, apples, some apricot sweetness sneaks in before the corriander and a pinch of pepper at the finish. Palate is well carbonated but pretty smooth. Nice tripel!

3.5
reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 draft @ the dovetail. Golden with a white foam. Nice lace. Yeasty nose with orange and vanilla notes. Taste to match. Slightly bitter alcohol bite, but crisp and refreshing. Medium bodied.

sersdf (1020) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2007
draft, map room. brown/orange with a clear head. lighter than i was expecting, but opaque. kinda turned off by the aroma, it’s got a bit of belgian funk, and a bit of metal too. it has this one off-aroma that a lot of belgian tripels, but not american tripels seem to have. it’s certainly meant to be there, but i don’t like it. flavor is candi sugar front end, then carbonation, then a bit of alcohol but a nice round finish. actually i like the finish a lot.

3.5
Grovlam (4247) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle @ Le Bier Circus. Large fizzy egg-white head that mostly lasted. Good lacing. Clear sparkling body with a golden colour. Citrus, coriander, Belgium yeast, spice, clove, apricot and other fruity notes with some caramel and perfume as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation. Medium sweet flavour with hint of acidic. Sweet apricot, perfume and spicy finish. Quit nice with the spaghetti we got. 24-05-2007

3.3
Mart (211) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2007
Bouteille @ 8.7% (avant fév. 2010). Couleur blonde or, voilée, mince mousse qui persiste. Arôme plutôt faible d’agrumes et de malt, notes de levures. Goût d’alcool, de houblons agrumés, d’épices, très malté et sucré, levures présentes. Alcool long en finale, avec une légère amertume. Effervescence modérée à forte, corps plutôt mince. Trop alcool, pas assez de corps à mon goût.

3.2
riversideAK (6261) - 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.

3.4
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.
