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.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Very nice aroma of yeast with citrous notes. Interesting flavour, very fruity but I coudnt figure which fruit. Hides the alcohol well. Overall a nice beer, but I think I expected a little more.

Bottle - Delirium Tremens tulip. For years this was among my favourites, but I dont enjoy it as much as I used to. Perhaps my palate has grown up, or perhaps they just dont make it like they used to. Still quite solid and a staple in my cellar.

bottle into tulip, very fruity aroma (pear), nice pale orange color and sediment floating within with large head that lasted the glass, flavour was quite nice mostly fruit and alcohol but with some other flavours, slightly matallic and dry at the end

11 oz bottle at BJs. Light and fruity aromas off this yellow beer with a decent head. Flavors of bubble gum and candy sugar. Some alcohol flavor in the finish, but not as much as expected. Very good.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Sua colorao dourada, mas no to turva. Sutilmente frutada e floral e levemente amarga e metlica. Carbonatao perfeita, moderada abaixo. Excelente creme (persistente). lcool razoavelmente evidente. Retrogosto no to marcante. Ponto forte o creme: intenso e perene.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle at St. Veronus. We mustve had the worst luck that night. Three bad beers in a row, save for the Achel not being too bad. Lots of head on this one, and I was impressed by the pour. But drinking is something entirely different. The flavour was on the lighter side, and lacked complexity. Body was barely sturdy enough to be called a Dubbel. No mouthfeel, little taste. Not on my books.

jlruthven (609) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2011 Wire-and-cork bomber, poured into white wine glass. Nose is intense with white grapes, slight spice and biscuit. Extraordinarily crisp brew; yeasty mouthfeel, with more grape, some lemon, a bit of saison-like funk. Clean finish, with light bitterness left over. Alcohol is 99% hidden. Nice.

Unique. Smells of champagne. Pours Light gold with huge white head. Floral and yeasty with evident alcohol. A real bulked up white.

Aroma was strong with yeast and floral. The appearance was cloudy yellow with a thin white head. The flavor was nice with hints of citris and a creaminess like vanilla. Finished dry with a lasting tang. Overall a great brew.
