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.

2005 bottle: Already this beer has gone extremely flat and sour with no carbonation. A light background of yeast to spice it up but this beer doesnt have long cooler life.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2006 If you want to introduce to someone what a good Belgian "Strong" tastes like, this is a good beer to showcase.

vyvvy (6460) - 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 (537) - 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.

500ml bottle.Corked in 2005 pours a slight hazy golden amber with a foamy white head.Aromas of dried fruit and banana and yeast.There is enough effervecence to make the brew light and bubbly with no bitterness with flavors of dried fruits and sweet yeast bread.Wow, this is a brew worth having again and again.

Nice light Ale color, with a bit of a spicy aroma. Full of different flavors of spicyness and citrus. Smooth all the way till the end. Will buy again

3.6
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.
