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.

Orange blonde color with yeast in suspension, thin white head. Powerfull, assertive, dusty aroma and flavor of yeast, citrus and spices. Bitter finish. Medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. Those crazy brewers are really something !

Tart citrus (tangerine/lemon), earth, suede, barnyard aromas. Plenty of yeast character. Murky, opaque orange-tan with decent white head that diminishes unfortunately rapidly. Sweet malt and tangerine citrus flavours with coriander spiciness and a yeasty tartness. Lots of alcohol warming. Soft in the mouth with carbonation that gently stimulates the tongue. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and a gang of bierophoux.

Tripel number 1 for the night, and my favorite of the three. On the pour, it had the coolest head I think Iíve ever seen. At first, I thought of Shaving cream, but then I was like, no, itís exactly like the froth on a Latte. Anyway, had a darker color, similar to apple cider and smelled like a nice fruity white wine. Also present were scents of sour apples, honey, and flowers. The taste was very nice, as there was some tartness to accompany the sweetness, that is to say lemon. Also in the taste was pear and, dare I say, light whiskey. In the end, it was quite dry with a noticeable presence of alcohol, probably a good thing, given that this was 10%!

10.03.04 330ml bottle. Hazed and bespeckled yellow gold hides beneath a mammoth, rocky, mountainous, persistent head. Aromas, besides being characteristically DeDolle (yippee!) in their yeastiness, are a medly of orange and spice, plus some clover, vanilla, and peach. Iím in love before I taste the stuff. Hell, I was in love before I even opened the bottle. Body is cool and perfectly carbonated, only slightly coating, happily yielding to the aggressive hop finish. The flavors are a floral hoppy boquet, tons of orange and lemon, maybe some pineapple. Sweet toffee notes surprise my buds just as a warming alcohol presence sweeps over the whole show. Hoppy and fresh, fruity and sweet, lively yet warming...Iíve nailed the timing with this bottle as I canít imagine this brew being any better. I think Iíll have another. Wow.

wait for the foam to dissipitate. Light yellow, darker cloudy yellow at bottom. Somewhat spicy coriander orange citrus pale strong with substantial yeast. Has the bite to it. Easy on tongue.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2004
Very active pour, only slightly cloudy for this viberant gold beer with a white head that looks like a puffy cloud. The aroma is fruit based, it has a cider and wine smell that lends to itís sour presence. There is a great feeling when you taste this beer. Itís very tangy and fruity with a sllightly noticable yeast flavor. There is a backbone of sweet malts and a full mouth feel of fruit.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2004
Sampled from the bottle at the brewery in Esen, Belgium. Pale. Sweet, strong and spicy nose. Notes of orange, pear, peach, cinnamon and icing. Simply delightful in its flavor. Rich, sweet and spicy tripel/big belgian barley wine. Notes of pear, peach, banana and clove. This is a winner.
