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.

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

olliejobbins (1108) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
330ml bottle. pours quite hazy yellowish amber with a huge off white head. leaves tons of lacing. aroma is balanced between sweet caramel and citrussy hops with a bit of yeast. nice smooth mouth feel. alcohol is completely hidden by a slightly sweet caramelly nutty taste.

cmc619 (445) - California, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bronze-gold with pretty good head. Sticky toffee and raisin aroma, but not as dark/burnt as a dubbel. This is hot and syrupy in a good way somehow. The smaller the sip, the slower the drink, the richer the flavor. A bit clingy on the palate (not stage 5), but overall solid beer.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn. Bottled July 2014. Loads of bits floating in the bottle. Creamy white head forms 90% of the pour. Sediments in the glass despite being careful. Cloudy golden colour. Good retention. Thick lacing. Nose… maaaan that’s nice! Caramelly sour milk (or keefir?), kama… alcohol most definitely there, not hiding anywhere, and there’s yeast… the sour milk thing recedes later on, and it gets more sharp, kind of like orange peel and overall citrusy. Someone said parmesan - can’t disagree, it’s got a strange pungency… damn interesting, damn good. Taste is, well, less intriguing - sweet, fruity, doughy (but not as much as your usual Belgian), slightly spicy. Body medium plus, carbonation moderate. Beautifully balanced, considerably hoppy with a lot of thick sweetness (but not syrupy or sugary). This freak is awesome.

Moravius (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2015
Flasche (33 cl) von Getränkefeinkost Berlin. - Orangegelb, trüb mit unschönen Schwebteilchen; wenig Schaum. - Nase angenehm malzsüßlich und matt herb-fruchtig mit süßen Rosinen und Waldhonig. - Antrunk gedämpft herbfruchtig (Pfirsichkern) und ungeniert kandiszuckersüß mit Karamel und leichter zitroniger Herbe (Orangenschale). Andeutungen von Moder und überreifen Weintrauben. Mild rezent, vollmundig. Im Abgang milde aber deutliche "englische" Hopfennoten; herb trotz anhaltender Kandissüße. - Interessantes Tripel, das sich gegenüber einem herkömmlichen Tripel durch Andeutungen von Moder und muffiger Schärfe auszeichnet, ohne auf die typischen Tripel-Zutaten plakative Kandissüße und fruchtige Herbe zu verzichten.

Cluniac (68) - - JAN 11, 2015
An exceptional beer, and probably my favorite tripel. The appearance is a standard belgian honey tripel, which I always like. The aroma is also somewhat standard with candied sugars, belgian yeast malt. The taste is a bit bitter but has some nice sweetness to it and some tang, maybe orange peel. Initislly this hits you as just another tripel, but after a bit the palate feeling is nothing short of heavenly. Incredibly smooth, creamy, and very very light with a touch of fruity freshness that is one of a kind. Overall an exceptional beer and top of its class for sure.

Beerathon (1338) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Gonna be hard pressed to find a tripel tastier than this. A bit of funk, almost farmhouse like upfront, met with soft carbonation, lemon, grass, lovely Belgian candied sugar, some clove, coriander, slight bitterness, orange peel, raisins. Hazy gold with 1-finger head, partly creamy. Love.
