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.

750ml bottle with commonmac during March madness. Gold with thick white head and good lacing. Bright belgian yeast nose with some fruitiness and floral character. Taste is sweet, fruity, yeast, really nice. Just an overall great pleasant beer. On the light side, which is sometimes perfect.

Somehow overlooked my avatar namesake all these reviews, this old favorite pours clear golden with a frothy white top that lingers. Aroma is complex with lemon, pepper, and a grainy character than smells slightly bitter. Flavor follows nose thoroughly. Finish is fairly clean with a slight bite of hop which lends a dryness.

Barwa żłta. Mocno nasycone, piękna, drobnopęcherzykowa piana, jest lacing. Niska goryczka, mocny aromat alkoholu. Musujące i wytrawne wykończenie.

piwneopinie_pl (64) - POLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Piwo przypomina mi aromatem piwa pszeniczne. Jest więc banan i nuty brzoskwiniowe. Całość jest dosyć słodka i świeża. Bardzo przyjemny aromat, choć mało intensywny. Pierwszy łyk i czuć, że jest w nim sporo alkoholu. Czuć ja unosi się on w głowie, ale w smaku jest bardzo dobrze zamaskowany. Dopiero po jakimś czasie jest lekkie pieczenie w gardle. Piwo jest dobrze nagazowane, przypomina mi trochę smak szampana. Musującego szampana. Są więc białe winogrona i lekko słodki finisz.

Una de las cervezas que ms disfruto. Pese a tomarla durante aos considero que es una cerveza obligatoria en casi cualquier cervecera que se preste. Apariencia exquisita, encaje y corona tan sensual como apetecible, buen aroma, complejo. Una buena explosin de sabor con ABV totalmente integrados en el sabor. En definitiva, enamorado de esta cerveza.
