De Dolle's Dulle Teve has been matured for over 24 months in wooden casks previously used by Etienne Dupont/France to mature his famous Calvados de Normandie. The over two year maturation in those wooden casks has allowed De Dolle Dulle Teve to mellow, lose its agressive carbonation and dryness, and develop a new balance of flavors triggered by the tannin, vanilla and butterscotch flavors of E.Dupont's Calvados casks.

Thanks to beerguy101 for being willing to dole out $11 for this beer and sharing, especially after the old man jokes. This beer pours a golden yellow color with a thin white head and relatively good lacing. The aroma was truly funky in many respects. I got a little bit of everything in there... leather, cask, honey, hay, wood, grass, HEAVY cheese, cardboard, dirt and earthyness not to forget ALCOHOL!!! This beer was sponsored by the color yellow and the number 11!!! HEAVY alcohol dryness and burn with this one. Flavor is full bodied with orange, oakyness, malts, apple and cidery qualities...and somewhat cloyingly sweet in its finish. I mean this beer tasted like what yellow would taste like if it could be drank. WAYYYY too young however, this needed to be aged badly. Definite alcohol presence made this very difficult to drink. Mild carbonation levels. Very good orangey malt stickyness, but abrasive alcohol. I have SO many thoughts here I cant possibly name them all. Its good, its way too young, god save us all.

    I won this bottle in a raffle when I attended the GALS (Georgia Ale & Lager Sirens) meeting at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur. It pours a hazy, nearly opaque honey golden with a fairly thick white head. (Be careful when opening, though - the sample I got fizzed like champagne!) Strong, inviting aroma is fruity and a little malty, as well as subtly sweet. Rich flavor is mainly fruity, mostly apple with hints of banana and pear. There are also malty and hoppy undertones and a little bitterness. Texture is smooth as soymilk and has a good fizz to it. Definitely worth looking for, but as I said, open with caution!

    Aroma is strong, fruity, funky, with some banana-clove as well as some light hops, bitterness, airy, clean, and crisp. Appearance is golden, cloudy yellow with a bleach white head on top that is highly carbonated and remains. Mouthfeel is clean, fresh, crisp, complex, and dry with hop complexity. Flavor is crisp, fruity, yeasty, with some hoppiness and damn good. Overall, great brew and very strong and a bit alcoholic; great addition this one is...

    Bottle from Bert, thanks bud! The appearance was a murky cider color with hefty sedimentation and a very nice, well sustaining head and continuous carbonation. The aroma was of candy apples and light cinammon, some yeast. Flavor of apples, grapes, and wine. Upon further warming, light yeast, vanilla, oak, and white pepper. Mouthfeel was moderate to heavy for the style, smooth, but amply carbonated even after aging.

    Bottle: Poured a hazy golden yellow color ale with a huge foamy white head with great retention. Aroma of apple is quite dominant and weirdly enough reminiscent enough of ice cider; alcohol was not that overly apparent as I would have expected from reading ratings for this beer. Taste is also dominated by the apple component from the Calvados but again very reminiscent of ice cider and was very much enjoyable. Body was above average and alcohol while being evident was not providing a burning-type sensation, which I often dislike. Definitely will be seeking more of this in the future.

    07.03.05 330ml bottle. Glowing orange amber pour; tall, creamy head of light beige foam seems immortal. First whiff, yowzah! Monster aromas of tree fruits (apple, pear), pineapple, cookie, vanilla, coconut milk. Hidden brandy notes emerge with temp. Body is full, creamy, and still lively. Tingly eff compliments and subdues a big alcohol presence. Sour green apple flavors join the party, with nougat and vanilla, it’s a glass of boozy and delicious candy. Not overly done, just a great beer given time to come into it’s own. Great now, and certainly a good candidate for stashing a few in a dark corner. Thank you De Dolle!

    Pours with a golden body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and slighlty fruity with a peppery hop note and a nice flowery note. Medium to full bodied, dry and slightly numbing.

    330 ml bottle. Orange gold color, kind of cloudy. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is funk, banana, cheese, wood, apples and alcohol. A medium to full bodied triple. Malts are fruity and oaky. Very alcoholic and drying. Lots of wood and alcohol. Interesting beer, but it needs some time to mellow a lot. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and very dry. Aftertaste is bitter, alcoholic and dry.

    Poured a cloudy orange color, with a huge white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of melons, apples, citrus, vanilla oak, yeast, and funky brett. Taste of more melons, citrus, strawberries, and calvados. The finish was very dry with yeast and lots of alcohol. Alcohol is a bit hot right now, but damn, this is going to be amazing!
