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.

Kind of a glowing orange colored brew with a thick whipped cream head. Spicy yeast nose. Very fruity flavor that reminded me a little of a cross between mango and peach.

bottled: had this one side by side with the stille nacht. pours nice yellow haze with a huge billowy head that kept coming and pushing and fluffing. nose of nugget hops and some banana peel that you slipped on yesterday with a bit of nutmeg spice in the end. in the mouth some sweetness with the nugget hops and spice coming up....as it warmed got much more alcohol taste and warmth. for 10% much more drinkable then the 9% stille nacht. quite nice.

(on bottle)Very powerfull banananose, high carbonated mouthfeel and a fresh, alcohlic finish. Not a real highroller in my book, the different sents and flavours are fine, but seem to come in a row, not conecting. But the finish is wonderfull. The alcohol lingersgood finish indeed. and spices seem to enter your mouth from nowhere to prolong the feeling. Very good finish indeed.

11.2 oz: Mused and murky thick laquer orangish yellow color, a tall meringue puff of ivory sits a top; tons of thick lacing coats the snifter. Nose is quite nice with a mild corriander spice and soft lemon tone; slender sugary tones, yeast, and a nice round display of caramel. Flavors ensue from the aroma with a wonderful array of caramel with a nice underlay of lemon hints and mildly exhibited spice. Perfect amount of heat and grab in its alcohol and sharpness. Maintains its overall semi-tropical fruity malting with caramel and sugars while a crisp little return of spicy hops and yeast dart through the finish where it has a sweeping sweetness that goes dry and peppery after a stint. Perfect! Feel is briskly malty with a fruity/caramel backing and fullness the whole ride through, fluffy distribution across the palate at first, finely carbonated, and lots of other fun things inside that include some light and mild spices, some alcoholic heat, and a super jovial finish that goes from fruity sweet and sugary to dry, hoppy, spicy, and yeasty. There’s more here then I can describe at the moment as I’m in full enjoyment mode. This stuff rocks! Why so mad...bitch? Be happy like me. Happy now, be back soon. Yum! Rockin’ awesome triple thats right up my alley.

(bottle) Cloudy yellow with a head that lasted throughout the glass. A great belgian beer. Well carbonated and fairly think tasting. This was as close to drinking hard cider as I think I could stand. I liked this beer a lot, but at a whopping 10% alcohol I know that one will always be my limit.

This beer would be the best tripel in the world if it were slightly less carbonated. De dolle is an astonishing brewery! Pours with a head so rocky I need a harness and ropes to finish it. Lovely and golden. Smells like a cross between a duvel and chimay cinq cents. Very hoppy version. Almost a belgian strong in this regard. I could drink this morning noon and night. G-rat

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2004
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!

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.
