4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

0,33l fles, oranje goud kleurig troebel met een witte kraag, redelijk stabiel. Geur is gist en zoetzuur, appels met banaan. Smaak is naast zoet ook een tikkeltje zuur, mooie balans met appeltaart en witte wijn als nasmaak, die goed blijft hangen. Nice

Though they may fall into the category of triple but it’s a good beer to say that Strong Ale 10% alcohol. The body of a full-body type is suitable to drink slowly over time. A great finish of the beer geek favorite, was delight around with tongue very much taste.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent honey orange with foamy eggshell head that slowly dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of mild Belgian yeast and tropical fruit with a mildly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. It’s been awhile since I’ve enjoyed an example of this style, but this one is well-balanced (not too sweet) and enjoyable.

Cor laranja turva com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de caramelo, cítrico, grapefruit, frutas amarelas e fermento. No sabor, boa carbonatação, com dulçor médio, adstringente, baixo amargor, seca ao final. Amargor e calor da alto teor alcoólico persiste ao final. Muito boa!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2014 Pours clear golden colour with sturdy two-finger head. Aroma is fascinating: white grape and apple (almost prosecco in tone) sat on atop some yeast. There is also a faint hint of earthy, bitter hops. Palate is soft and consistent. Sweet citrus up front, replaced by yeast and earthy hops. Rising bitterness on the back end.
Despite 10% alc it is camouflaged. Almost like the conventional Triple’s refreshing summer cousin.

Copper, fairly clear but with some sediment bits, fluffy white head. Aroma of bready malt, light fruits of strawberry and pear, some plum-like notes, earthy spice and leather. Flavor: earthy spice, brown sugar, herbal notes, leather, moderate spicy bitterness, fruity notes of plum, pear. Complex and unique earthy character.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

Look: clear amber with a huge white rocky head with good retention.
Aroma: mostly fruity, white grapes, fermenting apples, cidery acidity, apple vinegar, funky, spice.
Taste: again mostly fruity, white grapes, peppery/phenolic, dry, white wine, light slightly aldehydic bitterness.
A great tripel. Love the cidery fruitiness!
