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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2017 Bottle from supermarket. Just called Delirium Belgian Strong Beer. Pours hazy yellow with a thick white head, very lively. Smells like Savlon antiseptic cream. Tastes like it too! Yeasty, wheaty, just not very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2018 (330 ml bottle) Delirium Tremens: the rapid onset of confusion and spasms, resulting from alcohol withdrawal. This gruesome malady's beery namesake is presented in a grey, ceramic bottle; simply branded 'Delirium', to avoid causing offence to us PC brits... Pours a slightly hazy, golden-yellow beer, with vigorous fine carbonation, forming a tight white head, made from beautifully regular pearly bubbles. Yeast aromas come through first, echoing a Hefeweizen: banana and clove ride the cusp of the vapour. Sweet malt lies just behind, with notes of gooey bread dough. The hops deliver just a fine whiff of citrus, before deeper notes take hold: honey, oak sap, crème brûlée, sultanas, caramelised cashew nuts, mineral water, and a subtle earthy finish. Crisp and clean, but extremely effervescent - explosive and tumultuous. Overall, not bad. Despite the complexity of Delirium's aroma, it's just a little lacking. Sweet, spicy, and highly refreshing, but far too fizzy to comfortably drink.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2017 A real knee trembler, from the pour, to the sniff, to the taste... to the after effect. Fortunately I'd eaten so the motorway to complete and utter nonsense has been slowed. But not much... Where's the beer menu?

Rhyfelwr (6) - SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2017 does not count
Excellent presentation, pours light yellow with minimum head. Light notes of caramel and cream are present. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Packs a sneaky punch due to the high alcohol content.

spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2017
330ml bottle, pours gold with a small bubbly head. Aroma is caramel malt, wheat, banana, cherries, blackcurrants. Medium bodied, oily texture, medium carbonation, finish is sweet, fruity and lightly bitter. Always a pleasure.

Nikokaoja (413) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2017 24. 11. 2017, Ljubljana. Bottled. Surprisingly clear, golden colour with frothy white head with mild retention. Taste is very unique, sweetish, bitterish, complex but balanced out really well. Aftertaste is nice and also complex in a good way. One of beers that is really great and can get all the marks right and I know that is high in quality. Just not my favourite style. Otherwise really, really, really good.
