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 conditioned brew. Amazing Belgian strong ale. Hazy gold in color, with a white foamy head. Starts off sweet with a hint of banana, apricot, and nut. Finishes with a bit of a doughy bitterness. Gotta love the complexity on the palate.

toscanoigor (225) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - APR 27, 2017
Cerveja laranja, com tima formao de espuma, de mdia durao. Aroma de leveduras, cravo, um pouco ctrico, mas no muito intenso. O sabor muito mais cativante, com boa base de malte, suave, um pouco doce no comeo, com toques frutados (banana, ma, bem tpicos de fermentao), mas de final bem seco, com bons toques de especiarias e um leve herbal. lcool muito bem inserido. Corpo mdio, mas vai ficando meio pesada de beber medida em que esquenta. Definitivamente, vale a pena experimentar e repetir.

Yellow straw, lightly hazy, soapy white head. Aroma is yeasty, bananas, spice, similar to weizens, but more intense. Taste has sweetness, sourness and bitterness in good balance, honey, fruit, spices and ethers. Body is rather thick, soft, oily texture. Very good.

From old tasting notes. Hazy Amber orange color. Huge rocky white head. Interesting yeasty citrus malt nose. Delicate citrus malt flavor with a subtle complexity. Tantalizing spicy hops balance this complex ale create a dryish dried fruit finish. Very good.

On tap at Damian Beer & Ale. Right after Hercule Poirot greatest of Belgian origin is their ale. And this is "Ze Belgian ale". Rich aroma, honey, hops, straw, lemon. Forgettable appearance, short white head, clear golden colour. But the taste... The taste has so much in it - honey, hops, lemon, raisins, leaving you with sour, maybe sweet finish. I love this beer, a lot of alcohol, but one cannot feel it, so be careful.

0.33 bottle from Auchan. Gold, thick white head. Spicy nose, with coriander, banana, cloves, biscuit malts. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter. Flavors go into the yeast territory and citrus. Alcohol can be felt in all its potency, which may not be to the likes of everyone. I liked it.

Bottle at home a while back. Pale, clear golden pour. Fruity aroma and taste with banana, citrus, some yeast, spices, hay and honey. Nice balance. Great beer.

Nonshaugen (567) - Fetsund, NORWAY - APR 1, 2017
33 cl bottle. Clear, light golden amber, thick white head, medium carbonation. Nice aroma of citrus, bubblegum and some grass, but not as up front as expected. Mouthfeel is fizzy and dry. Flavours of citrus, grass, hay, bubblegum, alcohol and some dark fruit notes at the back, long aftertaste. Great beer, a bit too "sharp" at the palate for me, but a very enjoyable Belgian.

Mitica cerveza belga, rubia, fuerte, de color pajizo. Bastante alcoholica. Tomada mil veces
