Wonderful beer that always surprises, evolving terribly complex when a fantastic experience that I am glad I dedicate myself to prove it to a party. One of my favorite beers. De Dolle is one of my favorite brewery with very good products. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
33 cl bottle. Deep golden and slightly earthy with a thick creamy white head. Sticky lace with very spicy/yeasty aromas. Mango, papaya, lime and lemon top notes, more tropical fruit and even some pineapple. A touch of warming follows all of these bringing with it intense spices of cardamon, clove, and ginger. Creamy texture with a lovely wheaty body and spiciness up front. Fresh tropical fruit mingling with warm baking spices. Ginger, clove, black pepper mingle with a soft spearmint flavour on the back. Sweet Belgian malt bring the yeast and fruitiness together. Warming intensifies the spice and softens the fruit. Waves and waves of alternating sweet spice, tropical fruit and tart acidity just make this a world class example of the brewer’s art. Amazing beer. EamonTheGreat (157) - USA - OCT 3, 2013
Heavy floral and citrus aromas. Thick white head with good lacing. Full bodied great tasting Tripel. Truly one of my favorite beers of all time.

Flesje 33cl, oranje geel van kleur, strakke witte schuimkraag. Smaak is goed, heel goed. Complexe tripel. Heerlijk fris van smaak. Mijn absoluut favoriete tripel. KasperHelt (2) - Herfølge, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2017 does not count

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 750ml: Banana peach. Unfiltered. Mountainous white head sprays the glass with intricate lace. Invigoratingly estery nose with notes of dessert apples, honeycomb, doughy yeast, melon, and black pepper. Delightfully musty, as well. Carbonation expands then condenses into a soft cream. First sip is soothingly yeasty and heavily estery with peppery alcohol and herbal hops. Notably flowery, bitter, and peppery throughout the brew with long honeyed pale malt notes to balance the esters and herbal aspects. Finishes with a blend of table grapes, salt, and doughy malts with a lingering grassy character. Exuberantly ripe and balanced in every aspect. Understated, yet extraordinarily complex. A real gem of the world. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 13, 2005
From a bomber. The only date I could find on the label was 1998, but that may have just been the date of the artwork on the bottle. Pours copper with a huge white fluffy head and some excellent lacing that sticks around. Some floaties can been seen in the glass. The first smells present reminded me of a good gueuze. Smells of straw, barnyard, cane sugar, and yogurt. Tastes of grapes, citrus and other fruits with a vegetal finish and an excellent tingly mouthfeel. This one is definitely a keeper. hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2006
Golden orange beer, slightly hazy. A huge fluffy white head. Aroma is a delight, beginning yeasty and leathery and developing sour and sweet fruity notes over the next half hour. Fruit, pear and some banana, as well as alcohol, dominate the taste, but there are notes of citric sourness, spice and nuttiness that blend imperceptibly into a bitter finish. A wonderful tripel, to be slowly sipped and savoured. Minor complaint: the hallmark De Dolle label, ugly and amateurish, but this is obviously not reflected in the rating.

After buying the bottle today, I poured it into a Leffe glass this evening. As I prefer not to refrigerate Belgian beers, the bottle spewed a little after I opened it. Despite a high amount of foam in the beginning, the Leffe glass permitted it to completely disappear within a minute or so. The flavor is an amazing combination of sweet spiceyness that lowers the perceived alcoholic strength. Let’s say it’s like a Turkish Delight beer! For the US government...just call it a Mad Female Dog. Fantastic beer for our future pub in Taiwan! LEKKER!!!
