Delirium Tremens

Delirium Tremens

A strong golden ale that may look like a lager beer but is in fact a complex pale ale. The painted bottle and the glass both have pink elephants and green crocodiles on, which is the result of drinking too many. A lot of warming alcohol flavours abound along with its sweet palate.
Style Pale Ale
Country Belgian Beers
ABV 8.5%
Serving Temp 10 to 12°C
Bottle Size 330ml
Named for “the shakes” that one gets after a heavy night of drinking, Delirium Tremens Belgian Strong Ale will probably do just that. Producing this beer requires three different yeast cultures and the result is intense flavours of honey, spice, pears, apricot, golden raisin and subtle citrus alongside rather complex aromas. Pair a dry finish with a solid bitterness from both Saaz and Styrian hops and this nicely-balanced beer is one you’d want to drink again and again.

    Review by Richard

    its no wonder that this beer won best beer in the world. one of the best I've ever tasted. (Posted on 28/12/2017)

  • Dangerous

    Review by Llamaman

    A quality brew with plenty of complexity packed into a lighter style. Distinct apricot notes which are lovely.
    Drinks far too easily for it's ABV. (Posted on 28/12/2017)

  • Very nice beer.

    Review by RichMahogany

    Quite bitter but very nice. (Posted on 22/12/2017)

  • Best beer I've ever tasted.

    Review by Michael

    Really not exaggerating when I say this beer is the best I've ever had. (Posted on 21/12/2017)

  • Enjoyable Belgian Ale

    Review by Mark

    Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with average carbonation and a full white head. Big Belgian yeasty aromas, very fruity, oranges and hops evident. Taste is rich, slightly warming alcohol, a great combination of sweet, fruity malt with a good hop backbone. Gentle carbonation sparkle is very refreshing. Finish is fruity, slightly dry and leaves you wanting more! Enjoyed this beer with a creamy traditional lasagne. Pairing worked really well - beer is robust enough to stand up to the beef, the combination of hop bitterness and carbonation help cut through cream, cheese and fat and cleanse the palate and the sweetness of the malt and fruity esters blend with the sweetness of the sauce. A really enjoyable beer, great with food too! (Posted on 05/12/2017)

  • Proper Belgian!

    Review by Dudes Brews

    Pours light golden colour with a big fluffy head and good level of carbonation, initial sweetness that drys out with the carbonation and finish. Loads of big belgian yeasty esters which are the real star of the show, light spice notes and hints of banana and bubblegum. Tastes strong but the alcohol doesn't burn or overpower. Its a very good beer! (Posted on 24/11/2017)

  • Strong & Tasty

    Review by Benjamin

    Lovely beer. Fairly strong but doesn't taste it. Nice overall flavour, one of my favourites and would definitely buy again. (Posted on 17/11/2017)

  • Damn near perfect

    Review by Bacchanalian

    The perfect cure to all the milk toast brews that make up the everyday drinking repertoire. Why anyone would ever let Budweiser touch there lips when they could drink this is a mystery. It's smooth, complex, slightly spicy and incredibly drinkable. The yeast is balanced out by subtle tart notes and a very mild bitter finish. I'd give it 4 and half stars if possible as it doesn't quite match the refinement of other Belgian brews but it is damn near perfect. (Posted on 15/11/2017)

  • Lives up to the hype

    Review by Stuart

    Pours clear orange with a white head. Has a nice bubblegum fruitiness, with a dry finish. This one totally lives up to the hype. (Posted on 03/09/2017)

  • Worth the risk

    Review by Gerry

    A strong beer, but not overwhelming. It is lighter tasting than its ABV would suggest. It is hoppy and malty. Very moreish. (Posted on 14/07/2017)

    Review by Shunt

    A strong crisp flavour that really lets you know that this is a beer not to be messed with.
    A Bitter hit with a dry finish due to the ABV - full of flavour.

    Review by LE4DL3Y

    Absolutely amazing Belgium beer ! First drank this few years ago in Eindhoven in Holland and enjoy it everytine i go (Posted on 22/06/2017)

  • Belgian perfection

    Review by Scott M

    Extremely crisp and tasty for a boozy Belgian strong ale and doesn't taste anywhere near what you'd expect for an 8.5% beer. Very nice drinking beer which goes down very easily. Also love the theatre of the bottle and label design. Superb Belgian ale which doesn't take itself too seriously. Lovely stuff. (Posted on 19/06/2017)

  • Great Belgian Beer

    Review by Gavin

    I first came across this beer in the delirium bar in Brussels, possibly one of the greatest bars I've been to! Although strong its got a great taste and its easy to drink casually. (Posted on 13/06/2017)

  • Lovely fresh and crisp

    Review by Ali

    A nice blend of flavours with a strong punch. Lighter than expected though with a sparkling consistency. (Posted on 26/02/2017)

  • Shaking all over

    Review by Danny Boy

    Really good example of a strong Belgian blonde/tripel. Nice balance of flavours. Very well known, and very well made. Something of a classic. (Posted on 05/02/2017)

  • Belgian Standard

    Review by Scratty

    Like most Belgian beers it's good but this is a cut above, you can feel the high ABV but the taste cuts through it, you can taste the flowery,fruity and herbal notes of the hops. Delirium is probably my favourite brand of Belgian beers. (Posted on 18/01/2017)

  • Strong but flavoursome

    Review by OD

    My favourite Belgian beer. Amazing with a Sunday roast! (Posted on 15/01/2017)

  • Make mine a Babycham...

    Review by Paul

    ...Only kidding, this is a nice and strong Belgium beer which is light in colour. A really tasty beer and not too heavy (I had several in a sitting and the taste didn't diminish) (Posted on 13/01/2017)

  • Dependable

    Review by TurboRay

    Brought my 1st bottle of Delirium back from Brussels after Wales played Belgium! It's just as I remember! Strong, dependable Belgian blonde! Comes in a very decorative bottle, stops light protruding, I guess! (Posted on 24/12/2016)

  • Lovely beer

    Review by Amy

    Strong and very drinkable considering. One of my all time favourites (Posted on 21/12/2016)

  • Strong and Golden

    Review by Shunt

    A strong and fully packed flavoured beer. A nice bitterness which doesn't mask the subtle flowery notes of the yeast or sweetness of malt.
    Well worth a try if you have never drunk this before. (Posted on 16/12/2016)

  • One of the best

    Review by Sambo

    Of the many Belgian beers I've tried this stands up as one of the finest. Always happy to drink this (Posted on 15/12/2016)

    Review by K

    Fantastic beer (Posted on 29/10/2016)

  • Nectar of the Belgian Gods

    Review by wgardner

    It's like drinking a boozy, floral, strong nectar from the heavens. So easy to drink, and loads of bubble gum and floral notes. It's perhaps one of the best beers in the world. (Posted on 19/10/2016)

  • Decent

    Review by Johnny

    Clear golden body and a white non-descript head. Nice nose with sweetness of bubblegum, yeast, sweet bread,. Quite carbonated, with an off flavor on the finish. The nose on this beer is better than the flavor. Finish more disappointing. Hard to believe I’ve never rated this beer previously. (Posted on 26/09/2016)

  • Standards.

    Review by EzraBurke

    A standard Belgian strong. Peppery and hides the ABV very well. (Posted on 21/09/2016)

    Why did I wait so long to try this. This is possibly the nicest beer I have ever had. (Posted on 19/09/2016)

    Strong beer, full of flavour - a firm favourite (Posted on 04/09/2016)

    Not a session beer. A fantastic belgium beer. One of the best that Belgium has to offer. (Posted on 18/08/2016)

  • A bold one

    Review by Bancini

    wildly powerful brew, with lots of bitterness and a sweet finish. Quite boozy but goes down very easily. (Posted on 17/08/2016)

  • Stunning

    Review by Elliot

    A fantastic strong Belgian beer. Not one you can drink too many of but given it's strength it's relatively easy drinking. Lots of carbonation and a notable sweet finish at the end. Spot on. (Posted on 14/08/2016)

  • Fantastic beer!

    Review by ChrisBaker108

    Don't be expecting to drink more than one of these, it's very strong, but a fantastic flavour. (Posted on 27/07/2016)

  • Fantastic

    Review by DrinkingEnthusiast

    Amazing beer (Posted on 24/06/2016)

  • Deceptively drinkable

    Review by Jess

    This is a good example of Belgian beer. Light and fruity it is deceptively drinkable for its abv. A favourite that I keep coming back to, time and time again. (Posted on 09/06/2016)

  • One to be respected

    Review by JohnP

    This is a delicious beer, very tasty, but far lighter in flavour than you might expect given its strength. Beware; its name is apt! Very refreshing, gently fruity and hoppy. Plus the bottle has pink elephants on it, what more can you ask for? (Posted on 09/06/2016)

  • Easily drunk for such a high abv

    Review by Westy

    Slightly sickly sweet to start, but balances out, true to a Belgian beer though, is very easy to drink considering its abv. Creamy head and good hop finish (Posted on 07/06/2016)

  • Brutal

    Review by Rockmaker

    this beer deserves respect. It has a deep rich flavour which lines the throat, this combined with an extremely flavoursome aftertaste , makes this beer one of my favourites. Whilst it goes down easily , beware , it has a kick like a mule ! (Posted on 23/05/2016)

  • Still vibrating

    Review by Fyfie

    Sweet then becomes quite earthy almost spicy. Does not drink 8.5% lovely. Even get a hint of Parma violets. Was desperate to try this beer now for a while and it did not disappoint. (Posted on 20/05/2016)

    I had this Belgian strong in a pub yesterday. This is a fantastic Belgian strong beer. I would highly recommend!! (Posted on 01/05/2016)

    Review by Mr White

    This mighty beer lives up to its reputation and holds its own as a truly individual beer. (Posted on 26/04/2016)

  • Johnny

    Review by Johnny

    Slightly hazy golden colour, frothy white head, some lacing. Aroma is malty, fruit, alcohol, yeast. Taste of sweet fruit, malt, slight herbal note, with a light bitterness and alcohol in the finish. (Posted on 11/04/2016)

  • Lovely Stuff!

    Review by Kaz

    Like many people I first tried this in Bruges and was delighted to find it on here. It's a fruity Belgian beer which at 8.5% packs a punch, but it doesn't taste that strong (so be careful!). I love the glass as well (Posted on 04/03/2016)

  • Aptly named

    Review by Mean Green

    You have to love a beer that is named for an alcohol withdrawal. Controversy! The beer is delicious. Doesn't feel like it's 8.5% so be careful. Fruity and complex with the distinct Belgian yeast flavour. Will drink again! (Posted on 18/02/2016)

  • Fantastic

    Review by Jo

    Wonderfully fruity, crisp and dry, so many different flavours. (Posted on 14/02/2016)

  • Perfect beer

    Review by Lauren4591

    Delirium beers are consistently good and this is no exception. This is one of the best beers I have ever had. It is smooth and mildly fruity and goes down very well. (Posted on 17/01/2016)

  • Light and refreshing

    Review by Davego

    This is a bright bubbly typical blonde Belgian beer, refreshing and light for a good session beer. (Posted on 17/01/2016)

  • Strong!

    First tried this on a night out in Brussels - dangerous but delicious! (Posted on 05/01/2016)

  • Strong and not subtle

    Review by Jim Jimmeney

    I first drank this beer in \"t Brugs Beertje\" in Bruges on what started as a quiet afternoon of investigation and Museum visiting well one beer can\'t hurt I thought so several hours later I was friends with most of the bar and this is the one that really sticks in the memory of the more than 2 beers I drank that day. You know you are drinking a strong beer with Delirium but the flavour is great. (Posted on 17/12/2015)

  • Deceptive

    Review by kobayashi

    This is a great beer, good balance, though the strength comes through more than say, Gouden Carolus. This will go down great on Saturday. Not sure about Sunday morning! (Posted on 05/12/2015)

  • Fruity, drinkable, and hard-hitting

    Review by GlühweinGeek

    Wonderfully fruity, almost a bubble-gum flavour to the Delirium Tremens. Strongly recommended to try - strong, but not overpoweringly so. (Posted on 07/05/2015)

  • Boom...

    Yet another hard-hitting brew from the Belgian masters. This is strong but very drinkable. Get your mate to drive you home... (Posted on 13/04/2015)

  • Deceptively strong and easy drinking!

    Review by AJC

    Quite possibly one of the easiest drinking beers considering its strength. Beautiful presentation as always from Huyghe Brewery, from bottle to glass. Best served slightly chilled in a Delirium glass of course! Highly recommended. (Posted on 31/12/2014)
