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.

Tap. Opaque gold. Small head. Scattered lace. Faint nose of mild fruit, Belgian yeast. Very bubblegummy. Banana, apricot, candi sugar. Quintessential tripel. Very well camouflaged ABV.

This is quite a unique beer. In a lot of ways it tastes like a rather yeasty and alcoholic Tripel but there is this strong (after)taste of dough and pepper which gives this beer a unique identity.

Clear brilliant gold with a thin white head. Nice blonde Belgian malt sweetness with a wee ester note and gentle barnyard tones--a touch doughy and peppery. Lovely flavor of peppery yeast esters, sweet barnyard Belgian blonde malts, a touch of fruitiness, and a wee touch of fresh cut grass with a little kiss of booze warmth. Really swell.

Bottle. The cap opens with a small pop but luckily no gushing follows. Pours a golden body with some floating sediment, massive creamy head. Big malty aroma with all kinds of fruity esters and solid hoppiness. Taste has smooth maltiness mixing with a tenderly tart fruitiness and nice hop bitterness. Finish reveals the added sugar that helps to balance the alcohol. One of the best Abbey Tripels. After having a run of mediocre Tripels I am once again reminded why I love this style. I don’t know why this beer is called the way it is. It’s very smooth and coherent - probably the opposite of an actual mad bitch.

Degustata in bottiglia da 33 centilitri anche se l’etichetta errata dice 750 centilitri! :) ottima birra beverina nonostante l’alta gradazione. Bel biondo leggermente torbido con cappello di schiuma. Sentori floreali e ciliegie sciroppate, al palato nocciola e caramello. Da perdere la testa.

Fantastic beer. Not your usual tripel. Aroma very typical for similar belgian beers but the taste is something unique. If you are into belgian tripels, this will surely be a positive experience

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2015 Dulle Teve uitgeschonken in Oerbier glas. Donkergele oranjeachtige kleur, met bescheiden witte schuimkraag. Veel gistdepot, net als bij de Stille Nacht. Geur is zacht kruidig als een dessert met gedroogd fruit als perzik en abrikozen. De smaak is zoet honingachtig, in een perfecte balans en kruidig, met tonen van gedroogde abrikozen en zachte specerijen als kaneel, met zoete tonen van de kandij. De afdronk is licht zoet en kruidig met zachte hoptonen. De Dulle Teve is een voortreffelijke tripel waarbij het stevige alcoholpercentage van 10% goed is verborgen. Dit bier heeft een aangename en herkenbare geur en smaak, die lijkt op de Stille Nacht van de Dolle Brouwers, alleen iets kruidiger en minder complex. Het is een echte tripel met een uniek eigen smaakpallet, een aanrader voor de liefhebber van tripel bieren.

Une bière qui sort du lot ! Une amertume bien présente et un arrière goût intense. Une merveille !!
