Hazy amber with fleeting white head. Nose held notes of yeast, citrus, spice. The moughfeel was lively carbonation and smooth and medium bodied. The flavor was sweet and alcoholic and fruity. Not bad but not great.

So its the same old story again and again. De Dolle is the only company out there that makes belgian beer that I can tolerate and on top of that I love the stuff. Again, thanks again to brooklynboy for sharing this fine brew with me and the other guys at the corkscrew. Pours a nice golden colour with a thin white head that was quite long lasting. The nose is wheaty with lots of malts and suggar. The taste was nearly the same but it seems more rounded and complete and less one directional. there seems to be just a bit of flowres too. Good stuff!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A hazy darkish amber coloured triple with plenty of sediment. The beer has a big long-lasting head and generous lacing. The aroma is spicy but also lemony. The taste is medicinal and strong with lots of alcohol, but also a bit of a smoky aftertaste. A good complex beer.

Cloudy amber/orange color,large white head that faded slowly to a nice lace.The aroma was fruity sweet with some yeast notes.The flavor was very nice with a good fruity side and notes of spice and malt with a hoppy bitter side coming through as well.The alcohol makes an appearance on and off throughout the tasting but it’s fairly mild and well hidden for the most part.A very nicely done brew that makes me wish i had a few more around for later.

Murky cloudy, orange body. Excellent lacing, white rocky head, that lasts mostly. Hoppy (pine, citrus) and yeasty (soap) aroma. Lightly acidic, heavily bitter initial flavour. Moderately bitter (long) finish. Ful body, watery texture, lively carbonation, matallic feel and alcoholic.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden body, beautiful short, everlasting, creamy white head, leaving a thin lace. Heavy carbonation. Perfume, yeast and hops in the aroma. Taste is balanced, dry and slightly malty (champage, orange peel, yeast). A slight tartiness in the finish, not really sour. Lacks some complexity. Smooth, velvety body. Outstanding drinkability, hides the 10% alcohol perfectly.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a medium hazy amber color with a smaller white head. Tiny particles. Strong fruity and spicy smell with traces of yeast. Spicy and very fruity tastes(strong oranges, cloves and peppers).
Slight alcohol in the taste but no where near the 10%. I really enjoyed this beer and will have to get more in the future.

Labelled "Mad Bitch". Pours honey gold, with a big white head with medium bead. Aroma is lightly sweet, with some sea-water notes. Some clover, alcohol and honey carries over to the flavour. Bready and modest yeastiness. For a tripel, it isn’t very powerful. Underwhelming. Palate has gaps to be filled (as far as the style). Piles of champagne notes throughout, and into the very dry finish. All said, it is still quite good.

By the way...Dulle teve means (arrogant bitch)
