I first had this five months ago while visiting Toronto. I walked into a beer bar (Smokeless Joe's) with only exotic beers, and my knowledge of exotic beer was more limited then. The guy sitting next to me recommended that I try Delirium Tremens; he proclaimed it to be the best beer in the world. Well, I wouldn't say it was the best beer in the world, but still damn good. I bought a 750 ml bottle from BevMo to reassure that this remained good stuff. Love the bottle label, it looks like a circus is being performed. Well, on to the beer:
Poured into a chalice, its hazy blonde in color with a big, fluffy head that rises nicely. Yeasty and fruity (such as apricots) in scent, more of the same in the taste, with the peppery flavors less dominant. The unique part of this beer is its smooth as silk feel and its easy drinking for the style. I managed to finish the whole 750 ml without much trouble...
One difference of the Delirium I had to Toronto and the one I had at home was the alcohol content. It was 8.7% ABV labled on the bottle in Toronto, but 8.5% ABV labled on the bottle here in SoCal. But anyway, after finishing the whole bottle, things started to feel a little different. They don't call this Delirium Tremens for nothing!
