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 golden colour with huge white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast and spices. Very carbonated. Sweet fruity flavour with lots of spices and a well balanced bitter finish. Usuallt I’m not fond of tripel’s, but this one is good.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2005 On Tap. Called Mad Bitch at Max’s in Baltimore. A little pricey, but worth it. Hazy and a yellowish orange color. Sweetness throughout with some alcohol evident. A good beer that I hope to find again. De Dolle is a great beer. Scary ass label, btw.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Maybe the foamyest beer I have ever poured. Pale and hazy with a 5" sea foam density white head that never quits. Crisp aroma of yeast, black pepper and pear with some dry sherry and mineral notes. The flavor is sweeter than the aroma would suggest. It is not as spritzy as the appearance would suggest either. Musty and fruity flavors mingle with the yeast. Strong bitter finish. Alcohol is apparent.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Cloudy orangish gold color with a large white head. Sweet bread, banana and spice aroma. Clove, banana, malt, nutmeg, other spices, and hops flavors. Nice crisp feel with a dry finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Poured a murky orange with a mammoth white long lasting head and loads of lacings. Even after many minutes it looked like a large marshmallow floating in my glass. Aroma was fruity...oranges, apricots, green apples, and sugar. Flavor was fruity with some banana, spice, hop bitterness, and alcohol. Dry spicey finish and very wariming. Medium bodied.

Odeed (1795) - Bakersfield, California, USA - DEC 21, 2004
first off this beer gave off more head than a vivid adult video.it still has not simmered down and is making it difficult to get the first sip.the appearance gives off a murky yellow body with little "floaties" swimming around in my chimay glass.ok after about 5 minutes the foam has come down to where i can get my first impression.this has a very nice complex flavor.its a mixture of apple cider,belgian yeast,sweet malts,lemonade,and a semi-dry finish.it reminds me alot of orval except its a bit sweeter.this is a very fun and complex trippel.

Lubiere (10563) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Hazy gold ale with a thick white head. Fruity oranges and spices, hops in final, sweet candy sugar and hops. Alcohol in the finish, like grapa or another spirit. Body is smooth but not overly sweet or alcoholic.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - DEC 8, 2004
In the 0.33L bottle. Pours a caramel color- very cloudy and dark gold. Has a giant white head. Lace is more of a foamy core. Many tiny bubbles. Taste of medicine and pears, maybe even clover. Good bitter taste with a strong alcohol burn. Sweet up front, but not too sweet. Incredible head retention. Such high EtOH that it burns your esophagus all the way down. This beer produces major league burps and then numbs your toes.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - DEC 8, 2004
Bottled- Just like the picture. Hazy dark amber color with a head that just about came over the top of my Duvel glass. Aromas of apples and cherries. Sweet and malty with a bit of yeast flovor. Tingy mouthful. Great Beer!

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2011 Pours cloudy copper, huge head, lasts awhile. Tons of carbonation. Yeasty aroma with apple, pear, banana, bready. Candi sugar. Flavor is a bit of let down. Yeasty, alcohol, not much else. As it warms, tart green apple is coming through. Highly carbonated, even after breathing for a half hour, way too carbonated.
