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.

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.

sirsirus (60) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Transperant golden color but not lacking in flavor. Carries well balanced flavors of hop and sweet fruit. Smooth flavors, quite delicious yet not mild in flavors. Minimal carbonation. Very much a Belgian beer in taste.

Bottle. I know other beers that can cure my delirium tremens, but it appear to do the job.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 20, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 From bottle - Pours hazy light golden with floccolated yeast chunks and a huge foamy white head. Aroma of candied fruits, spicy yeast, bubble gum, and hops. Taste is sweet, yeasty, and a bit acidic, notes of orange peel, bubble gum, and clove. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with typical lush and foamy Belgian carbonation. Delicious, but not stellar.

From tap at Rich Os - Pours bright light golden with a huge foamy white head. Aroma of bubble gum, grassy herbs, candied fruits and hops. Taste is herbal and fruity with notes of bubble gum, pears, and noble hops. Mouthfeel is medium/full bodied with lush carbonation. Having this on tap makes me think my bottle was a bit old. Rating is from the tap.
