Ter Dolen

After the abbots of Sint-Truiden and later Prime Minister Duvieusart had left Ter Dolen castle, we opened the castle doors that had remained closed for centuries, and so the success story of our abbey beer began.

We would like to welcome you to Helchteren to Ter Dolen to taste the real atmosphere. But those who cannot wait can taste our beer in the pub or at home.

ARMAND

This beer was designed to honour  the co-founder "Armand DESPLENTER" of castle brewery De Dool. Thanks to his roots in the brewery world De Dool was founded. The beautiful beer therefore bears his name“ARMAND" TER DOLEN is a particularly refreshing beer. Its very fruity aroma is the result of the dry-hopping with the American type of hop Cascade. At the first sniff  of the aromas of this beer you recognize a beautiful fruity bouquet of citrus and grapefruit. While tasting  the beer you will recognize this fruitiness of the hop  and discover a particularly pleasant hop  aftertaste  without an exaggerated bitterness.The beer was deeply fermented so that it results in a digestible and thirst-quenching drink that asks some caution in consumption since it is a beer of 7% alc. vol..In order to preserve as many hop aromas  as possible the beer has not been filtered.  So it can be served  as a nice slightly cloudy beer with a bright white head in a matching beer glass.

Dark Ale : Abbey / Trappist

Bronze Ter Dolen Donker

By De Dool NV - Kasteelbrouwerij Belgium

Originally brewed as a Christmas beer this irresistible dark beer of  7.1% alcohol by volume became a permanent value in our range of Ter Dolen beers almost immediately.

It is a neutral, lightly sweet, fruity and soft  top-fermented dark abbey beer brewed with three different kinds of malt and two hops with the addition of light and dark candy sugar.

The most common malt for this beer is Münchener barley malt.

This barley is dried at a slightly higher temperature in the kilns, which creates a dark malt.

This is why you can  also taste a biscuit-like flavour in the Ter Dolen Dark.

Additionally there is a slight hint of caramel from a portion of caramelized malt, plus the typical flavours of light and dark candy sugar.

Ter Dolen Dark also has fermentation in the bottle.

Ter Dolen Tripel

It’s a  real full malty copper blonde triple of  8.1  %  alcohol by volume.

This beer  is brewed according to the German Reinheitsgebot of two types of malt and two types of hops, both  100%  Belgian.

Ter Dolen Tripel is the superlative of the typical Ter Dolen smoothness.This beer gets a rich mouth-feel by using only grain and no sugars during the brewing-process.At the first sip you can taste lots of soft tones, full of flavour with a lot of character without any real sweetness.The harder impressions, often observed  in tasting the grains are levelled nicely into a balanced whole by the Ter Dolen yeast.

Once the beer has passed the tongue the aftertaste appears.

This beer with its 30 BU bitterness is not a softy within the range of  Belgian triple beers.

Moreover, it’s a “fully hopped” beer.

During the brewing process only natural hop is used.  This can be discovered in the aftertaste. When this triple has passed the throat, a pleasant bitterness remains, making you long for the next  sip.
