De Dulle Teve is brewed in the tradition of a Belgian Triple. Its high density stems from large amounts of pale malt increased with pale candi sugar in the brew kettle. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, bottle-conditioned.

De Dulle Teve keeps two to three years without major changes in taste. Further maturing, up to 10 years, will cause it to darken a little and lose some of its bitterness. The bittering of about 30 IBU is due to Goldings hops in the brew kettle.

Can’t understand the infatuation with this one. My only thought throughout drinking this beer was alcohol, alcohol, alcohol. I’ve had much better with higher alcohol percentages.

Pailhead (5377) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is a nice blend of strong citrus, yeast, clove, and light pepper. Pours a dull cloudy yellowish-orange with a huge off-white head with excellent retention. Flavor is sweet citrus and yeast up front. Finish has lots of orange peel, lots of spice (clove and maybe ginger), and light pepper, as well as a light acidity. It’s about time I’ve tried this considering how many times I’ve passed it by assuming I already had. A very good beer and definitely one of their best. The best Tripel I’ve had so far.

Marcello’s Wine Market - Baton Rouge, La - .33 litre bottle. Pours a medium golden - slighlty murky with a thick, frothy white head that leaves a thick coating of lacing. Sweet, malty aroma of kids vitamins and a bit of cocoa. Sweet, syrupy flavor - maple syrup to be exact. Some chocolate in there as well. Alcohol is evident and very warming - would be better to save this one for winter. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Very decent little Tripel.

Poured a HUGE head, with carbonation jumping in the glass. First sip burned me pretty good, but nice flavor, opened up the tongue! As it warmed, got much better, alcohol flavor subsided. Citrus and spice dominate to me. Good stuff!

Big head on a dirty gold liquid. Light mellon and alcohol aroma. Very interesting milk and caramel flavour. Traces of maple syrup and alcohol. Delicious flavourful beer without an overpowering alcohol.

Murky golden color with a huge foamy white head out of the bottle. Almost pungent aroma of yeast and feet, with some spicey orange tones. Very carbonated on the tongue. Yeasty flavors with sweet orange and tangerine citrus flavors. Very nice Tripel, but the label is sort of freaking me out.

Bottle. Aroma is very nice, yeasty and powerful, fruity and citric. Unclear, golden colour. The head is white, fluffy and creamy, big and stable. Quite alcoholic tasting. A little sweet and fruity. The bitterness is a little bit harsh, but I guess that is OK for a tripel.

Hazy bubbly amber with a nice aroma. Lots of flavour, good stuff.

Cloudy yellow-brown, large particles of yeasty sediment, massive foamy head leading to extensive lace. Huge aromas of tropical fruit, especially bananas, orange, and as it warmed, vanilla and sweet spices. This got better as it warmed! Heavy full mouth feel, but the alcohol is well supported by the flavours. I’ve only tried a handful of Belgian beers, and in particular this is my first triple-- it really is fantastic.
