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.

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!

maeib (8598) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2004
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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 17, 2004
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.

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUL 15, 2004
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.

CEZ (397) - Milano, ITALY - JUL 13, 2004
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.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
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.

Crockett (1005) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
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.

lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - JUN 23, 2004
This great hazy goldcolored beer is an unfltered and unpasteurized blockbuster.It has a warm and maltlike aroma and a full bittersweet taste.This beer has a long afthertaste with a fine bitterness in the end.The mouthfeeling is round and warming up in the end. By the way...Dulle teve means (arrogant bitch)
