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.

Helibrewer (22) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Very effervescent, probably over 4 volumes of CO2. Nice golden-orange color, bright white head, thick with fine bubbles. Can feel the alcohol on the palate. Dry finish. Very nice example of a Begian Strong.

alomtnez (365) - SPAIN - NOV 26, 2016
Huge frothy white head very long lasting. Hazy dark gold. Rich aroma, spicy, caramel, prune, Belgian yeast and honey hints. Taste is dry, crispy, spicy (clove), ripe banana and malty. Crispy palate. High carbonation. It seems a tripel more than a Belgian strong ale.

This is the first beer Ive ever rated with a Rate Beer community member, seems like a lot of you guys are lawyers. Who knew. From notes. Ceramic bottle to shaker glass, pours light gold. Monster head that disappeared really quick. It retains well but no lace, typical of the Belgian style. Aroma of yeast, grass and more yeast. It tastes slightly sour. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation. I can only describe its mouth feel as, well, tart. Finishes fairly clean and dry. At 14 bucks a bottle this stuff is the most expensive and over rated beer Ive ever had. Im glad I didnt pay for it.

Golden. Cloudy. Dense head. Aroma is spicy with some fresh bread. Taste is slightly sweet and fruity with a light biterness.

Moravius (1152) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 15, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) aus dem kleinen Friendship Store, Sanlitun, Peking. - Delirium tremens, auf gut deutsch: Suferwahn (noch so ein plastischer Begriff, der dem heutigen PC-Sprech zum Opfer gefallen ist): wenigstens kann hier keiner sagen, er sei nicht gewarnt worden ... - Helles Goldbraun, trb. - Tripel-typische, duftig s-fruchtige Nase mit Trockenaprikose und Pfirsich, leicht parfmiert und hefig. - Im Antrunk leere Kandisse mit parfmiert-slicher obergriger Frucht und milde Hefe. Unangenehm suerlich-adstringierende Noten. Schaumig rezent, dnnes Mundgefhl. Trockener Abgang mit etwas schroffer, unaromatischer Herbe und fies adstringierenden Noten. bel medizinischer Nachgeschmack. - Ein Tripel der billigsten Sorte. Definitiv kein Genu.

wozap (746) - Węgorzewo, POLAND - NOV 10, 2016
Butelka do 06.2016. Złote, zamglone, piana średnia i drobna. początkowo winne, potem owocowość, nuty suszonych owocw, wyraźnie przyprawowe, rwnież w smaku. Pikantny finisz, wytrawny. Rozgrzewające i wysoko nasycone, wręcz musujące w ustach.

leghorn99 (256) - roma, ITALY - NOV 8, 2016
Ha un colore biondo chiaro , fioco e leggermente opalescente; coperto da una schiuma color panna acida , un bianco candido. Il profumo della Delirium Tremens dolce, malto fruttato e coriandolo con un tocco di alcool che ci prepara allassaggio. In bocca intensa, fruttato e caldo allo stesso tempo con una ventata di alcool smorzata dal fresco della sua carbonatazione e da un tocco di amaro dato da luppoli Saaz e Styrian. Retrogusto secco e persistente che la rende ideale come birra da meditazione.

ddesprez (31) - Saint-Marcel, FRANCE - NOV 8, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2016 L?alcool est perceptible tout au long de la dgustation mais raffirme sa prsence en fin de bouche avec une lgre acidit vineuse. Une belle amertume accompagne cette fin de bouche sche. Cette bire est dguster avec son verre Delirium associ. Dgustation agrable.

Ripe banana, yeasts and malt. The aroma is very similar to that of a weissbier but tastes like a not too sweet belgian ale.
