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.

Nice golden color pour. Sweet, spicy aromas with a malty flavor to it. A little dry but not too bad.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2006 poured a light gold with lots of little bubble carbonation. huge rocky whtie head. it eventually dissolved some, but it took a while. ripe smell of some lemon/lime, pineapple, and other citrusness. some yeast as well. too much sugary taste for me. at least i’ll be tipsy by end of bottle. i also don’t like the visible stuff floating around even in the first glass, a small and gentle pouring even.

On tap. had two times on the same keg. first time (fresh keg) seemed flat and yeasty with a fruity taste to it. second glass tasted much fuller and better, the same flavors as before yet better. Took 3 glasses from the brooklyn bar I am very happy about that, but for 7 dollars a draft i feel like I am robin hood, plus everyone needs some good glassware.

Strong ale with a kick. Not for the faint drinker. Ideal beer to introduce someone to when that person boasts liking strong beers.

deprogram (115) - Renton, Washington, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Super candi sugar defines this blond belgian. It’s nice, it’s popular, you’re likely to find it locally, and likely to like it, too - until it hits you in the head with a sugar hangover. But still, a reference mark against which all belgian imports must be measured.

4.2
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAR 8, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2007 Bright straw in color. Medium sized froth with a slight malty medicinal nose. Medium nectar. Crisp, bright flavors w/ medicinal undertones. Minimal bubbles in the glass yet lively in the mouth. Fruity and clean with a dry finish. Drinks well warm or cold. Overall: a tasty, well ballanced brew that I enjoyed thoroughly. highly recommended.

Bottle at the Bar Fringe, Manchester 10/09/2004 Golden coloured with a slightly hazy appearance. Strong in alcohol. Fruity aroma. Slightly dry malt finish.
