    Delirium tremens is Latin for "trembling madness", commonly nicknamed "the DTs", indicating a violent sickness induced by withdrawal after alcohol abuse. Although it is commonly thought that sufferers hallucinate pink elephants, which may explain its use on the beer's label, the most common animals seen in delirium tremens hallucinations are cats, dogs, and snakes.

    Delirium Tremens, the flagship of the Huyghe Brewery, was refused entry into the United States for it's name, and was taken off the shelfs in Canada for the same reason.
