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.

I really enjoyed this beer. I had it down at the Bier Markt in Toronto. Its a nice place that has about 50 beers on tap but perhaps each beer suffers from competition. This beer had no head on it. Tasty Bengian spices and a nice quick short-lasting aftertaste. I call it the strong beer that tastes light. Very nice. Very palatable.

Pours a yellowish orange, with a 2-finger head that lasts and coats the glass. I really enjoy the aroma here - that classic Belgian banana and spice, and I also get faint hints of that bubble-gum that some raters have mentioned. Tastewise, this is your prototypical Belgian. Nothing outstanding, but certainly nothing out-of-place or offensive. Spicy to the highest degree, with yeast and citrus coming through. A pleasant amount of carbonation; it doesnt sit on the tongue, but probably shouldnt exactly be called watery.

Beer 28 Summer 2006 trip in Europe. Drank on 7/3/06 on tap at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. A decent tasty belgian strong. It felt like appropriate choice for a first beer at this cafe. Leaves a bit to be desired, its tasty and better then most but worse then a lot as well.

lets face it..we are spoiled by belgium beers (and southern californian) thus we have high expectations. Delirium is delicious compared to Amstel but next to some of its neighbors it gives me the delirium tremens..... But Hey!! I would never turn it down and thats the truth!!!!

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Light copper pour with a thick frothy head. Nose of fruit (strawberry) and bubble gum, mixed with yeast and hops. Big carbonation on the taste, along with flavors of fruit and hops. Medium to full bodied. Very nice.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 3, 2006
After all these years thinking I had had this already, I finally realized maybe I didnt. On tap at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Poured a sparkliing yellow with a big fluffy white head. Light fruit aroma and a bit of hops. Mild bitter finish and mild alcohol burn. Kind of watery in the end though.

grandridge (224) - Port Clinton, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2008 Poured a slight cloudy golden with huge white head. Aroma is fruits and yeast. Mouthfeel is carbonated and almost watery. I expected opposite of this when I pured this beer. Taste is nice. Has yeast and fruits taste, nothing too complex but balences the alcohol nicely.

Huge white head. Golden colour! Hops and sweet grapefruit in nose. Spice, lemon and orange dominates the taste.
