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.

33cl bottle into chalice glass. Looks appealing with a translucent deep amber body and a large rocky white head that settles to a firm lacing collar. I get oranges, lemon peel, candy sugar, pine needles, white peppers and alcohol on the nose and this is reflected on the tongue with a lively mouthfeel and medium-full body. Finishes sweet and a little sticky (certainly contrary to the stated description of 30 IBUs). A superior Belgian Tripel that goes down surprisingly easy given the high ABV.

Golden with white head. Gusher. Alcohol aromas, yeast, fruit. Yeast, spices, caramel sweetness and some orange peel makes a nice tasting beer. Well balanced finish.

hohops (747) - 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 (684) - 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.

kingaugusta (209) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Pours quite dark for a tripel (medium copper) and clear with a moderate off-white head and good lacing. Extremely heavy sediment. Nose is extremely boozy (almost like a barley wine) with some notes of syrup, hops, and coriander. Flavor is a bit more mellow but still very hot with a bit of sweetness up front but a very dry yet yeasty finish. This one may have aged a little too much because this really doesn’t look, smell, or taste like a tripel, though it’s still generally good, if a little alcoholic.

Hidden_Pooch (509) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Pours murky amber with a massive frothy head. Aroma is of spice, faint candy, very weak aroma. Tastes of bubblegum, banana, cloves, and a grapey sweet finish. Has a light body with high carbonation and a tingly, warming finish. I felt as though something tasted off about this beer, maybe my bottle. Almost tasted a little infected.
