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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 5, 2005
Dark yellow color, little white head. Spicy, strongly fruity aroma, some caramel in there too and mild alcohol. Mild sourness fits well to rich aroma. Medium to full bodied. Rich flavor too:spices, fruits, ends with medium alcohol and mild sourness. Spices and caramel last in aftertaste. Good strong brew, maybe lacks some character to have rate starting by 4.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 25, 2005
Bottle. Light copper color with huge, white puffy head dragging Belgian lace as you sip the beer. Relatively clear, but full of "floaties". Spicy aroma with hint apples. Extremely carbonated with a syrupy texture, leading to a bit malty palate with warming alcohol and long bitter finish. Sweet, but still balanced. A small masterpiece!

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2005
Has a nice bountiful head with a hazy orange color. Spicy fruity nose, very aromatic. Full bodied mouthfeel. Nice malt character, a little yeasty, still an overall enjoyable beer.

schuimkroaat (426) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2005 33 cl bottle, bottled on? Light amber, pretty hazy, convincing creamy head (surprisingly big and lasting for such a potent beer), vigorous pearling. Strong aroma: raisin bread, honey, slightly perfumed, a touch of sour milk about it. Strong, sweet honey-ish flavour with pleasant citric-like fruitiness, earthy hops and warming alcohol. A bit phenolic. The aftertaste is dry, malty (reminiscent of whisky) and contains some lingering hops. A fully satisfying massage for the palate with a dry finish.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Big Grassy Saaz hop nose with a nice peppery spice follow on. Lemon zest and apricots with a touch of plantain thrown in for good measure. one of my favorites for style. Big and bold yet finishes dry and clean.

pilsnerrogge (2586) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2005
Murky brown/orange colour. Nice, creamy head. Sugary aroma. Rich, mouthfilling, rounded, quite sweet toffee-flavour. Just when it’s about to get cloying the alcohol-bitterness comes in and puts everything into balance. A very enjoyable beer indeed.

mucom (35) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2005
Hazy yellow golden beer with creamy off-white head. Aroma is filled of bananas, apricots, yeast and notes of spices. Tastes very malty, yeasty and notes of oak. The aftertaste is hoppy, spicy and the alcoholic taste very well balanced. This is the kind of stuff that makes a beerbrewers good reputation.

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

TBone (13446) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2005
Bottled (BB 02/2005)
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.
