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.

vyvvy (6197) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 1, 2006
Pours hazy light orange / yellow with a thick white head. Aroma is spicy with some pineapple and some other tropical fruits. There is also some spicy and peppery aspects. Medium / full body with lots of carboantion - very frothy with some soft fizz. Tast is fruity (pear, pineappel & others) aspects up front on the start. The fizz hits and then the finish brings fruits, spicy hops and earthiness. A very enjoyable beer I have experience many times and will enjoy many more.

DarkMagus (517) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 31, 2006
A very slight head when first poured, but despite being fairly fizzy and well-carbonated, there was no residual head. Very sweet and fruity aromas and flavors of apple, pear, citrus, and pineapple. Some flavors of yeast and wheat hiding underneath. A great brew.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2006
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Light golden color with a nice and foamy white head. Aroma is rather sweet and spicy with a hint of pepper, orange, and coriander. Flavor has a light and spicy hint to it as it begins that goes to a warm and malty middle and a dry and smooth finish. Warming at the end, but hides the alcohol well.

On draft at the Yard House in KCK. Pale golden in color with some snowy white head. A bit of lace. Sugary sweet aroma with pepper and lime. Light body. Nice hop spiceiness with a touch of alcohol burn in the finish. Enjoyable, but not memerable.

Pours Yellow Ocre with a light white head. Its aroma is my favorite part a big sweet citrusy malty earthy aroma very complex very nice. Taste is slightly more mellow. Citrus qualities (lemon, grapefruit) and nutmeg nice hoppy works into a sour finish nice mouth feel a little watery after tast holds the sour citrusy taste for a long time.
