Today tasted a triple hop 2010 with my father. He kept the beer from 2010, in a dark seller. The aroma is Amarillo and the taste is balanced and has a long aftertaste. Great beer with a smooth and balanced taste. ---Rated By the Belleketels

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2013
0,75 l bottle. Poured cloudy yellow with a creamy white head. Hints of champagne, herbs, honey in the nose with grass and some resin. Easy bodied but strong character, nice hoppy flavor. Light malts, grass and resin.

Big fluffy head over hazy body. Aroma of lemon liquor and hops. Taste of lemon, honey, bit of solvent. Delicate and very light for a Belgian.

KnutAlbert (6078) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2013
Bottled at Pressklubben, Stockholm. A benchmark beer, seducing, yet with some bite in the back. Immensly drinkable. Made even more interesting by the hops. Herbs, white pepper.

GT2 (8425) - San Diego County, California, USA - JAN 27, 2013
750mL c&c thanks to dfroms! Glowing bright gold pour. Medium white foam. Nose is celery, honey, peach, sugar cube. Taste is drizzling with a very dense clover honey character. Mint comes through showing some age of the bottle. Palate is very aerated, very carbonated with a healthy dose of chalky yeast in suspension. As it warms it gains sugary cantaloupe, honeydew, yellow apple and cinnamon. Overall quite enjoyable with a handful of flaws from its age.

Martinus (2811) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2013
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of hops, grass, malts, pepper, very pronounced Duvel aroma, light sour touch. Sweet malty flavour, light bitter, light sour touch. Sweet finish, banana, pepper.
Was curious to this one! Not bad at all for an aged hop-forward beer.

Bottle courtesy of BelgBeerGeek, thank you Vincent! Clear pale yellow color, massive white head. Aroma of subtle white pepper. Taste is bitter grass and straw, hi carbonation.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2013
75cl bottle sample @ RBBWG 2013, courtesy of BelgBeerGeek. Dorée clair, col blanc épais. Arôme est citronné et houblonné, fruité aux notes d’agrumes assez agréable même avec l’age de cette bouteille. Palais est bcp trop effervescent ce qui enlève un peu de l’attente de cette bière.Garde néanmoins le côté fruité houblonné dans les agrumes ce qui est une belle amélioration de la Duvel de base qui au fil des ans est devenue d’un ennui terrible. Le tout termine sec, pointe d’épice qui vient picoter la langue et au final, l’effervescence ruine le tout. Une bonne idée, mais Moortgat a déjà perdu la course dans le thème, ’je rajoute un houblon tropical-citornné pour changer ma bière’.

Benzai (8212) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Clear yellow color, full sized white head. Aroma has some sourish notes on top of the malty, slightly hoppy base. Taste is the same. Overcarbonated.
