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.

Pour is a cloudy but bright yellow with a humongous white head that wont stop growing. Aroma is bready and yeasty with lots of clove. Flavor is complex. I get lots of yeast and vanilla as i first sip then as I work my way down the glass I get spices and pepper. A tasty beer experience and a little pricy but a nice b-day present for myself. Also, alcohol is hidden well for a 10%.

2001... Poured a hazy golden color with a large white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of hay, yeast, citrus, caramel malts, spices, and yeast. Taste of vanilla, citrus, yeast, lightly sour, and a good amount of alcohol.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - JUN 17, 2005
Cloudy, with a giant head that’s very very pale. Leaves puffs on the glass as you drink it. Vanilla and clover and peppery aromas. Sweet across the tongue, with a sour aftertaste. Yeasty along with the sour. Somewhat dry finish and nicely warming.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 16, 2005
Cloudy (unfiltered) amber and translucent with a REALLY REALLY hyperactive head on it. Smells sweat and bready. Makes the mouth water. Sweet attack with a broad, bready flavor that quickly evaporates into an alcoholic tang.

ontario102 (794) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Flowers, black pepper, orange peel, and yeast aromas, maybe some vanilla and pear hints; sweet and crispy front end, flavor consists of apples and grapes, tangy yeast and pineapple, wood and pepper; dry, sourish finish, with quite prevailant burning alcohol; this is good, but not one of the better tripels, I think... it’s a little too peppery and yeasty, for me

Ce grand brumeux dorée est une bière non filtrée et non pasteurisé, a un chaud arome de malte et un goût plein, doux et amère.

Bottle. Probably shouldn’t have tasted this straight after the Oerbier. Lovely hazy orange gold with a massive rocky white head which looked spectacular in my Duvel tulip. Orange peel and spicy alcohol dominate the aroma with acetyl notes and subtle hops in the background. Taste is dry and herbal, dominated by the warm alcoholic finish; the mad bitch definitely bites. Feel is good, but not up to the Oerbier.

Papsoe (25079) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Hazy and dirty (as most Dolle brews), orangey golden with a huge head.... Lots of fruity esters, lots of yeast and rather complex aromas. Sweetness galore from the added candi-sugars but the hops make this drinkable indeed. An Abbey Tripel - really? 081296

irishsnake (355) - Oakland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2005
beer pours a fizzy, hazy gold with a big bubbled head that retains well and laces in sheets. nose is huge, with strong earthy elements balanced by a big fruit charecter (lemon and berries), along with some yeasty spiciness. it’s a really complex nose, that keeps evolving as the beer warms and breathes. flavor is quite big, starting with a suprisingly thick and sweet maltiness that quickly washes away in a wave of herbal dryness. also notes of alcohol and phenol. mouthfeel is pretty good, as CO2 cuts the thickness well, but it is a little hot, and a little less than smooth.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2008 A Mes rate: one of the many bottles I have had from Dranken Geers.
Figured it was time to re-rate this one. Beautiful dark gold colour with a thick and creamy white head and glorious condition. Typical De Dolle aroma. Lots of sweet yeasty notes that they do oh so well and some glorious hops with a fine malty backbone. Assertive as hell in mouth with lots of peppery spice, gorgeous sugary yeast and a very slight hint of that characteristic De Dolle sourness. Big alcohol on the finish that spoils it a bit for me but all in all a very enjoyable regular for me as are all the De Dolle beers to be honest.
