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.

yespr (44698) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2007
33 cl bottle. Pours unclear pale yellew - clear remains of malt/hops floating around. White and quickly disappering head. Aroma is extremely fruity with primary notes of apple, citric/orange and grape. Taste is fresh fruity with a good touch of malt giving the beer a mild and sweet touch. Fruity to slight bitter finish.

I just wrote a longer review which got deleted. Pours clear gold with big fluffy head. Aroma of yeast, faint banana, spices, and candy. Flavor slightly bitter, very yeasty, strange twist on the finish. A great summer beer, though strong.

Strong fruity aroma with candy and bubble-gum in it. Reminds me of the Westmalle-yeast at high temperature. The foam didn’t last too long. Finishes a bit on the sweet side. Good belgian, but I know quite a few better ones...

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2007 Very nice aroma of yeast with citrous notes. Interesting flavour, very fruity but I coud’nt 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 don’t enjoy it as much as I used to. Perhaps my palate has grown up, or perhaps they just don’t 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 BJ’s. 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 coloração é dourada, mas não tão turva. Sutilmente frutada e floral e levemente amarga e metálica. Carbonatação perfeita, moderada abaixo. Excelente creme (persistente). Álcool razoavelmente evidente. Retrogosto não tão marcante. Ponto forte é o creme: intenso e perene.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
Bottle at St. Veronus. We must’ve 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.
