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.

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.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter slightly cloudy golden honey with a white head. Aroma is fruited sugar. Flavor is WOW subtle bitterness with prominent sweet candied sugar malt. An outstanding tripel quite smooth & nice to the palate.

Alengrin (1296) - 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

monkeychugg55 (860) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Cloudy amber with a soft, white head. Floaties! The aroma has strong fruit, reminds me of an apple fig newton. Also has some sweet alcohol, toasted sugar, and pear esters. The flavor is intense. Sweet toasted biscuit, bread crust, light carameln toffee, apple, alcohol, and spices. Finishes a touch tart, on the sweeter side of balanced. Pretty good but different.

Bottle @ ’t Poatersgat, Brugge. Pours cloudy lightish amber with stable white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and flowers, with notes of hops. Booze in the long nose. Sweet flavour of caramel malt and fruit, complemented rich notes of hops and flowers. Rough and swetish afteraste. Warming alcohol presence, permeating every aspect of the tasting experience, but it is well-integrated. Nice. Very nice.
