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.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Cloudy wheat appearance with firm white head. Tastes of banana and citrus with substantial wheaty malt foundation. Sweet and slight spices. Excellent mouthfeel for a triple. More lush than Golden Monkey, but I love the GM combo of spices. Could not detect the abv at all. Easiest 10% I’ve had- potentially dangerous.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2005
Hazy dark gold in colour with a dense, bubbly white head. Aromas are sweet lemon and spices, quite mellow and dry with alcohol. Flavours are dry, bitter, yet mellowed lemon. Fruity and quite sweet. The alchohol is warming rather than aggressive. Has a superb "foam in the mouth" palate. Not the best De Dolle, still pretty good.

BCAR (221) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2005
bottle. Floating solids in a hazy, viscous suspension. Rich grapefruit color with a head that lingers. Citrus is a strong flavor here with sour apples and yeast. Finishes short and dry. I was expecting more, it just lacked umph in all areas.

a wheaty, cloudy color. bready in aroma, raisony in flavor. a mouthful of fruit. didn’t get much of a reaction from me.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2005
Overly sweet with wildly difficult-to-describe fruit notes that seem to confuse more than please...Complex? Yeah, I guess, but seems more like confusion. I’ll have another and rerate at a later date.

Golden with big white head. Spicy sweet aroma with hints of alcohol. Big spicy sweet taste with notes of alcohol. Lasting spicy aftertaste

kms399 (267) - plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2005
pours a dark hazy golden color.huge rocky head. lacing is superior to any ive seen before. huge sticky gobs of puffy white lace. aroma is sweet and fruity and a little musty. tastes of spice, apricot, and alcohol which is subtle and not overpowering. mouth feel is dry and lightly tart.

Cornfield (5552) - 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 you’re smelling. And tasting. It’s 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 (6785) - 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--they’re typically about as attractive as those swollen red- bottomed baboons that even the nature channel is embarassed to show with a zoom lens. this ’mad bitch’ 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 it’s own built-in bottle-bottom bilge of heavy particulate matter, it’s lazy swirls of rising yeast look like the smoke stacks of a sleepy alpen village. it pours a perfect horned owl’s 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-mache’-- 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-- it’s sweetness and gentle grace that i’d want to bring home to meet mom, it’s a porch swing romance, a girl next door that knocks you off your feet.
