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.

This beer is very accessible in France. Very fraiche citrus nose with some barnyard. Yeasty. A warming taste with some alcohol. Somehow I would describe it as brassy

maupie (985) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JAN 13, 2006
This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet and spicy.

"Nice very refreshing strong ale. Tasted very sweet, sugary flavor. Little bit of fruit aroma and smell. alcohol was hidden very well. Nice pour and lacing that didnt last long "

TheBeerNinja (137) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 11, 2006
Pours a mostly clear golden, with a thin white head. Nose is fruity and acidic. Much same as far as flavor, yet not overwhelming. Very crisp finish, doesnt linger.

Pours a gummy head. Tastes much better on tap than the bottle. Lots of bubble gummy and fruity notes. The alcohol doesnt come out as much as it should for a strong ale.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Pours a slighty hazy golden amber with an average bubbly white head that stuck around but became spotty. Aroma of sour apple, Belgian yeast, candied sugars, fruits and slight citrus. Flavor was more malty with some spices, slightly bitter and yeasty. Cannot detect the higher abv.

LePoopie (151) - Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 7, 2006
Hazy, golden color, with a little light, foamy head. Has an OK fruity aroma. Pretty good flavor compared to other higher ABV beers I have had. Has a decent body, pretty fizzy with the carbonation.

BobbyW3363 (154) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 6, 2006
Golden color, opaque, with a large fizzy white head. Extremely fruity aroma, definitley pineapple notes there. Flavor is pretty sweet, almost too much so. The finish is pretty nice though. I havent had this in a while and I remember it being so much better. Their Delirium Nocturnum and Delirium Noel are both much better. Overall its still a pretty good beer, just not that great among Belgians.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2006
Cloudy golden body with a very nice white head. Sweet, tropical fruity aroma. Subtle fruity taste with hints of yeast and a slight tangy flavor. Mouthfeel is spritely with medium carbonation. A very nice beer, complex in flavor, but friendly, upbeat, and easy to drink.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 4, 2006
Golden color with a HUGE white head. Aroma hints of tangy bananas with some yeast notes as well. The flavor is dominated by notes of tropical fruits with banana leading the pack. As I took my last sip of the bottle I was distinctly reminded of banana bread. Fizzy mouthfeel at the start, it dies down over time and is rich and creamy by the time you finish the bottle.
