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.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
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.

hohops (756) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle, bottled July 2014. Appearance- golden with a slight amber tinge, an enormous pillowy white head which gradually settles. Turns murky brown when you pour it all out. Lots of bubbles rising. Aroma- Belgian yeast, bready malt, stewed apple, dark fruit, spices, orange peel, baked fruits, caramel biscuit undertones. Taste- lots of fruit here- apple pie, stewed fruit, brown sugar, caramel, rhubarb, spices, orange peel, solid malt presence, pretty boozy, fruitcake. Nice and full-bodied, doesn’t hide its strength. Impressive.

GSAP (685) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2016
Alcohol is wel aanwezig door de verzoete smaak van honing, kruiden en zelfs wat peper, weinig bitter, ook in de nasmaak die wat droog en zurig aandoet. Aroma is zwaar, bijna muf zoet. Smaak is het meest complex, aroma iets minder. Kraag is een kraag, hoog- en langstaand. Ceeoootwee is rijkelijk, teveel eigenlijk.

Tripel is one of my favorite styles. La Fin Du Monde, and Merry Monks are my two benchmarks of the style. Dulle Teve is a bit stronger, has a bit more "burn".... but the finish is just not smooth. I like to get a deep smell of the beer from the tulip, and after a sip, when I breathe out, I expect wonderful complex tastes. Unfortunately, the finish on this one just has some funk in there that doesn’t work for me.
