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.

Bottle at Charlies in Chicago...Poured a hazy golden orange with a bit of creamy off white head. Aromas were very yeasty and fruity, like apricots and bread dough. Flavors were similar to the nose with a hint of bitterness as it warmed. Mouthfeel was slightly lacking, but overall it was enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2005 On tap at Mahars in Albany. Sweet and sour beer, with a bit of bitterness. Even though this one has lots going on, it all comes together, and its very deicious.

Clear honey-blonde look. Strong sweet taste of honey with a nice alcohol punch that is rather nice. Nice a fruity with enough alcohol to satisfy anyone. Highly recommended.

Has a good, lively action. Nice head. Yeasty and full. Has a sharp finish. Not a bad Belgian.

ABUSEDGOAT (2630) - California, USA - JUL 17, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2006 Slighty hazy golden body with a moderate sized head. Aroma is lighter fruits soaked in alcohol, some sugar as well. Flavor is much the same, until the aftertaste which is a rush of sugar. As it warmed it became sugar water.

First Belgium beer. It was pretty good, but the jury is still out as to if I like this style. Had a bubbliness to it. Kind of like a Champagne

DT. Yeah, I get it. Mine poured a cloudy orange/copper from the bottle. Reminds me of spiced tea at Christmas. Not much of a head, but there is a remnant as well as lacing around the glass. This is about the only bad thing I can say about this one! The aroma is spicy and slightly sweet. Something on the order of cilantro and cloves along with citrus. Quite pungent and striking in a good way. The clove flavor dominates the palate initially and then a slight bitterness finishes to the sides and the rear of my tongue. I could definitely sense the alcohol in my throat going down and in my burps. The carbonation adds a spicy tingle to the finish. The more I drink, the more this reminds me of liquor.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2005
Hazy golden colour with large white head. Sweet fruity, alcoholic aroma. Sweet candy taste; too sweet, it masks any other flavours that might be in there. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet aftertaste. A bit of a disappointment.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Hazy pale yellow gold, moutainous white foamy head. Rich yeast esters and coridander and citron in the aroma. Rich malty character with a spicy yeast ester complement. Finish is slightly sweet and peppery. Mouthfeel is full yet smooth.
