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.

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a cloudy yellow with some sediment, and an average to large white head. Mild fruity aroma with some citrus, yeast, spices and alcohol. First thing you notice in the flavour is the alcohol, it’s strong!, but at the same time it’s really tasty. A nice blend of hops, malt, fruit and spices that I enjoyed. If the alcohol was tamed down a bit more my rating would have been even higher, as it is I still recommend it.

Bottle (330ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow and tupalev - bottle from my stash. Poured a murky amber-yellow with a huge - huge - white foaming head. Aroma was banana, lemon-citrus - alcohol! - sharp yeast - alcohol! - some pine resin, papaya and ... alcohol. Taste is, of course, strongly, almost burningly alcohol, but after that dies down a bit, it follows the nose, with an added hint of chocolate toffee. Mouthfeel is sticky and alcoholic. This is probably a terrific Trippel under all of that booze, but the burn IS off-putting.

Hazy and orange-yellow. Apricot aroma with notes of yeast and apple. Maltsweet, clean and fresh. Some sweetness in the mouth. Dry and alcoholic.

Thanks to Secret Santa for this one. Poured turbid dark straw/copper/orangish with huge white head. Complex, big aroma that contained harsh citrus and barnyard elements, plus hops, spices, some fruit. The taste was hopcity, with spices, apricot, malt, Brett, and a firm, complex, slightly harsh mouthfeel. The finish was complex and slightly astringent, in a good way. As it warmed, I noted chardonnay and even canteloupe hints. I’m happy they decided to name a beer after my wife.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Couleur orangée à l’apparence nuageuse. Moyenne quantité de mousse compacte et blanche concassée. Arômes estérifiés, pêches, gomme baloune à l’orange émergent d’un liquide aux tendances levurées et sucrées. Très alcoolique en bouche, puis sucré..sucre candi, le style semble bien représenté. Carbonatation très piquante, corps d’épaisseur moyenne propulsé par une carbonatation marquée, de fines bulles. Finale ramenant le sucre. Bouteille, Charlie’s Liquor, Boston, Janvier 2005.

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 (5443) - 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!
