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.

Beerdedone (3275) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2006

Big foamy head, lovely blonde, light lovely aroma, good malty taste, even for me (not a big fan of malt, but I liked this!), vanilla notes, went down smooth and nice. Definitely buy again.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2006
Bottled BBE Dec 06. I really should rate more as I drink. Dazzlingly blond, as if a thousand points of light are caught in the body of the beer. A Keyser Soze head - like that, its gone. Theres a liquid citrus aroma that reaches into the very back of your nose - assertive though, not overwhelming. And that effervescent feel - esters fight to the fore, a slight cherry twang, a sorbet tingle, a longer ever-so-slight sourness, a sweet lick left around the lips. Ive kept this back for a day when I could sit back and enjoy a great single bottle after a long shitty day - this was the day, that was the beer.

thornecb (5616) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours bright, hazy gold into a trappist glass. Sour earth and horseblanket aromas with a head that skims the surface. Fizzy, dry and full-bodied with an abrupt malt finish.

Rune (11505) - Troms, NORWAY - APR 17, 2006
330ml bottle bought at De Bier Tempel in Brussels in late February 05. Clear bright golden colour. White foam mostly diminishing. Light spicy and sweet aroma. Soft and firm mouthfeel. Fruity sweetness dominates the flavour with a slight hint of yeast in the finish. Alright, but too candy sugary for my taste (16.04.2006).

On tap at Falling Rock Taphouse, Denver, 4/15/06: Dark golden with a solid white cover of foam. Big aroma of sugar. Strong sugary, banana, raisin, clove, flowers. Classic.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 11, 2006
Gold blond coloured, large white head, Lots of sprankling. Very fruity aroma (citrus), malty and light nutty. Full body, some carbonation.finish is excellent, dry bitter, some alcoholic touches and some little sweet hints. This is the top.

Geiserich (4232) - Linz, AUSTRIA - APR 10, 2006
Bottled:
Very nice fruity aroma with notes of plums, dried apricots and a breeze of cherries.Sweet and malty. Hazy golden color and a quickly diminishing head. Fruity and yeasty flavor, sweet and alcoholic. Fruity notes of raisins, chocolate plums and other sourly fruits. Light dry, light bitter finish, but quite good balanced. One left?

aracauna (3531) - Georgia, USA - APR 8, 2006
Pours a clear gold with a rather large head. The aroma is like spicy cider. Thin body. Cotton candy, cloves and apple juice all mingle in the flavor.

paul9639 (116) - New Hampshire, USA - APR 7, 2006
Poured hazy copper with a thin lacing head. Aroma was definitely the best attribute. Complex mix of yeast, bananas, and spices. The flavor was similar to the aroma, yet really subdued. Good pale abbey, but I prefer Corsendonk or Duvel.
