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.

Draught. Candi, lots of yeasty, some salty sea water/sweat notes in this heady brew. Tasty, sweetish with a good dry backdrop. Looks excellent as well.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2006
Dark yellow colored, hazy appearance. Big white head. Fruits, orange, spices, lemon, mild licorice and yeast in aroma. Medium bodied. Sweet flavored with fruits, lemon, apple and spices, aftertaste lasts with spices and mild orange. Alcohol covered totally in aroma and flavor, wouldnt believe to have ABV 8.5%.

I wish I could remember the name of the young woman who bought this for me. I owe her a thank you. Anyway, pours light yellow with a soapy white head. Powerful aroma of fuirt-pear, banana, citrus. Taste is exceptional. Sweet with hints of fruit and bitterness. Excellent beer!

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2007 33cl bottle
Golden orange and copper colored body. Apple cider and malt sweetness all over the flavor profile. somewhat lowe than normal carbonation in this bottle, but the body holds up. nose is mostly an apple and pear overripe fruit character, but I do believe that the bottle I had was a big old. Overall it’s too sweet, and too much of a spoiled apple cider flavor.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Hazy yellow color with a huge foamy head. Nice lacing. Starts mild with soft malts but ends on a slightly dry peppery note. Alcohol is noticable in the aftertaste. Has some of that typical Belgian beer funk which is definetely an acquired taste. Overall a decent brew but not as good as most of the trappist beers.

pours a golden color with large head. very yeasty and malty aroma. Good taste of malt and spice (not sure what they are). Alcohol nicely disguised. Pretty good just not my favorite of this category.

This is a great beer from a quality family brewery in Huyghe, Belgium who have apparently been brewing their beer since 1654. And it shows. This one has a great color and lots of good yeast sediments floating around inside to let you know that its a flavorful, aromatic treat. Its fairly common at larger liquor stores in the states, which goes to show that not all the rare farmhouse ales are necessarily the best. A must try for any Belgian connoisseur.

Incredible, beautiful tasting craft beer. This was delight to find & savour the flavour. Amazing, chewy, Belgian beer that was sumptuos & worth purchasing again. The bottle seems like ceramic but is sprayed which intrigued me. This beer is outstanding & fully recommended
