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.

33 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 03/2012, BBE 03/2013
A strong kick of CO2 when opening the bottle. And foaming when pouring. Lots of foaming. Finally, when a big and a small Tripel Karmeliet glasses are full of foam, I can start my rating.

Aroma is somewhat sweet with toffee typical to aged Belgian ales. Also Belgian yeast, some citrus notes and grassy hops. Very foamy palate with lots and lots of CO2. Flavour is rather strong on pear esthers, some alcohol, banana and Belgian yeast. Dry finish. Interesting stuff; the alcohol is stinging and clearly present but still it doesn’t disturb much. This has some similarities with Malheur Biere Brut.

Mooie kleur, beetje troebel. Een goede tripel met een fruitig aroma en een licht bittere smaak.

ajnepple (3287) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JUN 21, 2015
330 ml bottled 14 months ago, poured into a small snifter and purchased at Mile High Wine & Spirits. Hazy dark orange appearance with a fluffy, lasting white head. Aroma of candy sugar, floral hops, caramel, coriander, clove, toffee, and touches of popcorn and butterscotch. Similar flavor, moderately sweet with some fruity esters and a light hop bitterness. Medium to full body with a lush, soft feel and mild carbonation. A great rendition of the style. Pairing: Phish - Funky Bitch, from 1997-11-30

330 mml bottle tasted on the 04/06/2015. Hazy golden to orange colour with a huge white head, thick and with very good retention. Aroma of yeast and intense malts. Taste is intense, with spices, yeast, malts and fruits. Notable presence of alcohol but balanced. Next one please!

Andy_ (963) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2015
330 ml bottle
Slightly hazy golden orange beer with big white head. Aroma has sweet honey, apricot, anise, appleish Belgian yeast and herbal hops. Flavor is sweet, fruity and herbal. Palate is full and foamy with some bitterness. Finish has medium bitterness. Aftertaste is toffeey and honeyish sweet with cheesecakeish sourness, herbal and yeasty with some pepper and anise. Nice tripel with very honeyish sweetness but also crisp herbal bitterness. No alcohol. Pouring the sediment makes the beer darker and murkier, tames the aroma, adds yeast taste and tames the sweetness a bit.

Amber kleurig bier met een witte droge schuimkraag. Smaak zoet van perzik en rozenbottel. Geur niet te zeggen te verkouden.

wow triple, so gentle and sweet in aroma with some tiny hops touch in background. Pours with thick, white, huge top. Taste is extra sweet with well enough hops complement to me but in a very shy manner, sweet aftertaste without sour notes. Thick bodied. Liked.

Douberd (3128) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2015
(De Dolle Dulle Teve 10º (Mad Bitch)) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 10% Orange coloured body, very hazy, even a bit murky one could say. Huge white head, thick and with very good retention. Light lacing left around the glass. Aroma is very fruity and inviting, apricots, light peach, yeast, not much different than any other triple but it has a little extra something. Nice taste, malty and fruity, again apricot and peaches, light yeast, some wood, bubblegum, the alcohol kind of notable and if not tastewise, you start to feel it after a sip or two. Medium thin body, carbonation is a bit high but not annoyingly so. Very good, dangerously drinkable.
