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.

Drinking it at the Belgian beer festival today. Slightly cloudy, minimal head, pleasant champagne-like tingle on the tongue.

Hazy yellow with good creamy off-white head. Aroma is typical DDB-nose: banana, apricot, yeast, hints of alcohol and spices. Very soft malt character, alcohol kicks quite well but mouthfeel is extremely pleasant, yeast rounds the corners. When beer warms up, woody notes appear. Long hoppy and alcoholic aftertaste with spices and tar behind them. Open fire, winter outside, glass of this ... excellent.

Spicy Belgian tripple. This one has it all, fruity notes, a spicy character, plenty of alcohol to go along with the tons of flavor and is not too sweet. And 100% natural.

Dark cloudy yellow, big white head, hoppy, peppery and some citrus in the aroma, sweet flavor that finished bitter, not as outstanding as i had hoped for, pleasant mouthfeel though. Pretty good.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2005 This is a tripel that is loaded with hops from the beginning. The aroma has apple, orange, wine, cider, caramel. That is what I get from the taste as well. Pours like the St. Bernardus tripel but with more yeast and a darker golden color. The head is very creamy with nice lacing. This beer has hops like a double IPA. I was not expected this. This is my first offering from De Dolle, and possibly the best Tripel I have had.

Bottled. Hazy blond colour. Aroma is citrusy, appley, rich malty, perfumy flowery. Flavour is heavy perfumy with almond paste and really, really bitter for being a triple. Reminiscent of Montagnarde.

Nice blonde hazy colour with some hints of red. A great belgian fruity aroma dominated by apple. Sweet malty taste with hints of apple and spice. Left a midly bitter aftertaste.

Pours a cloudy amber colour with a big white head. Spice and caramel apple aroma. Sweet malty taste. A good one!
