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.

Barely chilled:Not a gusher. Dark golden. Careful pour still releases a big fat head. Aroma is grassy hops ,phenolic,with big waves of candi sugar and malt. Fizzy,medium to thick texture. Upfront flavors are metallic(at first-rust),peppery,lightly grassy,with big pale malt. Following are nice sweet bread,flavors and more peppery,clovey,yeast flavors. Complex finish of grassy hops,pale malt,and the yeast is a slight afterthought,though stands out in the rest of the beer. Sweet and dry. As usual great lacing and head retention from a De Dolle product. After finishing lingering candi sugar and gummy yeast. Never really a sign of alcohol even after approaching room temp. Could drink much of this though it will sneak up on you. Up there with the best,although I have a bias for this brewery.

Hazy orange color with big white head. Aroma is apples, citrusy, apricots, toffee, candied sugar, very yeasty. Taste is with tart fruits (hints of balsamico even!), quite a sting at the beginning, again toffee and spices, with a boozy, warming finish. High carbonation. A quite complex Tripel, driven very much by fruit esters and sweetness, the tart sting at the beginning is really adding a lot of character. One of the better Tripels I’ve had.

Hazy golden color, huge white head. Aroma of malt, ripe sweet and sour fruits, grass, hops and spices. Sweet taste with light bitterness in finish and spicy aftertaste. Medium body and lively carbonation. Good tripel.

Pours murky light orange, explosive head no matter how careful the pour. Banana, honey, booze on the nose. Taste abounds in yeast and miscellaneous esters, banana, apricot, grass, pepper, clove. Very assetive tripel, quite good.

joeneugs (4585) - Livermore, California, USA - NOV 7, 2015
330 ml. bottle. Labeled April 2017 on cap. It pours a lightly hazed orange color with a massive, frothy off white head. The aroma is bready with some rather strong apple and pear esters. Dusty yeast. The flavor is strongly alcoholic with honey, orange and apple. Some hints of peppery yeast notes in the finish with more alcohol. Full bodied but well attenuated. Fruit, honey and alcohol stand out. Pretty good, although not really my favorite style.

Steve_0 (3584) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle at home. Huge gusher - murky orange pour with a big pillowy white head and good lacing. Big spicy yeasty, zesty, bready, peppery, herby, somewhat grassy, and tangy aroma. Taste is tangy, herbal, straw, black pepper, clove, yeasty, and doughy with a big spicy finish. Neodymium body with high carbonation. Pretty good, but a bit aggressive.

Wonderful beer that always surprises, evolving terribly complex when a fantastic experience that I am glad I dedicate myself to prove it to a party. One of my favorite beers. De Dolle is one of my favorite brewery with very good products.
