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.

dmschefke (568) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours an almost clear amber orange with dark floaties and medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of caramel, sweetness, and herbal hops. Flavor pretty much matches, but odd bitterness stops this one from being much better.

vipinvelp (2214) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2014
Clear amber with off-white lacing lasting foam head. Hoppy barley aroma, some hay notes. Quite sweet taste for a tripel, but then they added sugar to it. Can believe this beer matures well. Small bitter aftertaste. (Velp 201409)

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
The ’mad bitch’, Dolle’s unsubmissive tripel since 1993, originally a commissioned beer. Firm, thick, off-white head, quickly decreasing under the influence of the alcohol content. Deep orange blonde colour, misty. The nose is treated with a strong smell of orange juice and orange liqueur, richly perfumed with flowery hops, honey, caramel candy, vanilla, apple peel, jute, dried ginger, peppermint, nutmeg, grass, pineapple. Sweet onset with lots of caramel malts and orange, strong carbonation, smooth, evolving into a rewarding dry, flowery and herbal hop bitterness, supported by a lot of warming alcohol, on the brink of becoming astringent but just managing to remain undisturbing. Keeps well in the cellar too, certainly for a Dolle beer, which are usually at their best when cracking fresh from tap at the brewery itself.

Een goede tripel, er zijn er betere, maar er zijn zeker ook heel veel slechtere dan dit te vinden
