COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cornfield (5521) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2005
I like these mad brewers. The brew poured a hazy apricot color with a chunky white head. The aroma is fruity and spicy with a goodly degree of tartness. You could spend some serious amount of time trying to figure out what youíre smelling. And tasting. Itís sweet with apples and bananas and lemons and pepper and cinnamin and all kinds of good stuff to keep you on a good diet with your system well cleaned. A complex, interesting, and enjoyable tripel.

marcus (6696) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
This golden beer poured with a massive white head, eliciting a banana scent. The flavor is bittersweet with an alcohol finish. In keeping with the De Dolle tradition, this beer is a very unique, but marvelous creation.

no one ever bought a de dolle product for the beauty of the label--theyíre typically about as attractive as those swollen red- bottomed baboons that even the nature channel is embarassed to show with a zoom lens. this ímad bitchí label has all the artful grace of a prison tattoo. but mien gott in himmel, in every other respect this beer is as lovely as a glimpse of perfect cleavage. dulle teve has itís own built-in bottle-bottom bilge of heavy particulate matter, itís lazy swirls of rising yeast look like the smoke stacks of a sleepy alpen village. it pours a perfect horned owlís eye yellow, as resolutely yellow as egg yolk. the head was a sand blasted bone white mousse, i could paw out a gob of it and wad it up like a piece of paper-macheí-- it contained both pearly bubbles and firm beautifully sheeting creamy froth-- you can put your hand on the bottle and almost feel the champagne turbulence of exuberant effervescence inside. as a tripel lover, i can tell my beer loving bretheren than this product is everything you love about tripels times approximately 1.4. aroma is champagne, apples and mildewed cork, cotton tablecloths drenched in white wine, and gurgling with pear brandy and yeast. a gorgeous mixture of heavy cream and tropical fruits, a very soft feel, full body, elegantly sweet, with a natural symmetry of bitterness and strength. rudely named, the "mad bitch" is in fact a million times more meg ryan than madonna, nothing coarse or vulgar here-- itís sweetness and gentle grace that iíd want to bring home to meet mom, itís a porch swing romance, a girl next door that knocks you off your feet.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 18, 2005
Pours hazy amber with big ole head. This is a heavily carbonated ale. Interesting spices in the aroma and flavor, iím detecting some cinnamon, pumpkin, and lots of others, quite complex. Very sweet but finishes easy. Alcohol is not apparent in flavor but this is definitely a belly warmer.

thanks to Blake for this it opened as a gusher. Poured a cloudy dark amber w/ a huge fluffy white head. Smelled of sweet apricots, and brushes of cinamon & nutmeg. Good medium body smooth finish well carbonated palate. Tastes of bananna, doughy bread, apricots, with a sweet warm touch of alcohol in the finish. Overall a great belgian and my fav tripple so far.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 16, 2005
Bottle, kindly shared by Blake. Cloudy orange color with a beautiful puffy white head. Spicy, estery aroma of apricot / green apple with a caramel malt background. Once the carbonation selltles down itís less abrasive on the tongue, and the pear skin / rye / spicy yeast can come through. Green hoppy finish. Good stuff!

Bottle. Aroma: cinnamon or nutmeg, bready, wheaty, banana. Appearance: murky, thick, awesome head, beautiful lacing, liquid caramel color. Flavor: spicy, dark fruits, plantain, light grains. The palate is strongly carbonated. I donít normally like tripels, but this suckerís tasty.

Boutip (4828) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2005
Bottle: Poured a murky brown color ale with a small off-white bubbly head with average retention. Aroma is spicy with some barnyard malt. Taste is somewhat spicy (honey, cloves?) with some notes of floral malt and light funky yeast. This is not bad but was expecting a bit more character and Iím wondering if something was not wrong with this bottle, will have to re-rate that one.

Hazy straw color; head was THICK and would not go away- great lace. Very nice yellow fruit flavors. Alcohol is very evident. Warms up quite nicely- getting spicy. Favorite new brewery?
