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.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Barely chilled:Not a gusher. Dark golden. Careful pour still releases a big fat head. Aroma is grassy hops ,phenolic,with big waves of candi sugar and malt. Fizzy,medium to thick texture. Upfront flavors are metallic(at first-rust),peppery,lightly grassy,with big pale malt. Following are nice sweet bread,flavors and more peppery,clovey,yeast flavors. Complex finish of grassy hops,pale malt,and the yeast is a slight afterthought,though stands out in the rest of the beer. Sweet and dry. As usual great lacing and head retention from a De Dolle product. After finishing lingering candi sugar and gummy yeast. Never really a sign of alcohol even after approaching room temp. Could drink much of this though it will sneak up on you. Up there with the best,although I have a bias for this brewery.

HeadyDE (775) - Delaware, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle 2013 date, nice copper color with big white head, nice amount of carbonation, aroma is pleasant with substantial malt, honey essence, spices with clove and some faint nutmeg..mouthfeel is insanely smooth yet deep and complex, lacing on chalice is top notch, really enjoyable tripel that brings some alcohol legs on the finish, tasting great after 3 yrs..

imdownthepub (13683) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottled, 330ml, aged 8yrs from my Anniversary collection given by Sandra and sourced by Fin, a Christmas Eve treat. Hazy gold to amber with short beige head. There is a huge Belgian yeast note right from the start, candied pear drop flavours, spicy with an earthy hopped character. There is a drying, bittering element along with a resinous note. Rich and boozy. Super beer.

Vinx (116) - ITALY - DEC 17, 2016
Golden, a bit hazy, with a rocky very long lasting head. Aroma of pepper, clove, banana, peach, apple, grape. As the time goes on the bouquet expands with mature fruit. At last there are some honey and caramel from the malt and some floral hints of the hops which are somehow hidden by the aromas of the yeast. It’s 10% ABV but not ethilic at all, it gives you just some reassuring warming and a sudden rush of happiness while you drink. Medium bodied, fizzy, medium sweetness. Not so much to say: one of the top five beers I’d bring to a desert island. Gorgeous.

Pilsnertest (165) - SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle at home. 2015 vintage. An almost perfect triple. Full bodied. Sweet taste of fudge, herbs, hints of tar and liquorice, honey and warming alcohol. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Very balanced but yes, sweet.
