The first two batches of Duvel Tripel Hop were brewed with Saaz-Saaz, Styrian Golding and Amarillo. From now on Duvel Tripel Hop will have a different hop every year that will be added in the brewing process as well as being used for dry hopping. For 2012 this hop is Citra.

Editor’s note: clearly distinguishable, in a circle on the label it reads "Dry Hopped with Citra 2012 Selection"

MrW (469) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2013
33cl bottle Citrius in the aroma, fruits, grapefruit but less than in the 2013 version, mealy (melig) apple, some candy. Too bad that I got a dusty glass. Blond, white foamy head, huge sparkling. Fruity, not much left of the original Duvel, some bitterness, a bit of white wine, a bit of pepper in the aftertaste. Sharp fruity bitter towards the end. Too fizzy mouthfeel.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 geel/gouden helder met schuimig witte kraag, mede het hoge co2 gehalte blijft de kraag voeden aroma: MEGA citrus achtig, echt ik ben nog nooit een bier tegengekomen welke zo fris naar citrus rook smaken: matig zoet, medium bitter medium body, glad, te hoog co2, afdronk: hoppgi, zoetig dit zou een fantastisch terrasbier wezen in de zomer/volle zon, maar nu even niet!

Eructoblaster (3479) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy blond body with average carbonation and a decent white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with herbal and bready hints. Alcohol is very well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries herbal, coriander, and some subtle honeyish notes. Ends with a sharp, long, warming bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable all-season strong ale.

The_Osprey (4235) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Cold bottle. Pale yellow, high carbonation, big enduring white head, lots of lacing. Looks great. Citra hops smell. Taste is peachy, fruit soda, lager and sparkling wine qualities. Flavour isn’t very intense. Easy drinking.

mcberko (10578) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, pours a hazy gold-tinted yellow with a large white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, bready malts, British hops and some spice. Flavour of fresh Belgian yeast, spicy hops, cereal malts, some dough. Intensely flavourful and quite spicy and yeasty on the palate. Finish spicy and cerealy.

Hanoi (672) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Bottle. Nose is classic citra, tropical fruits, peach, papaya, mango, lemon, undercut with a gentle yeast; beautiful. Apperance is classic duval. The taste underwhelms compared to the nose. Floral notes, a little lemon balm, duvel yeast, grasses, fading to malt and a short lime and grapefruit finish. Palate is very carbonated. Wonderful nose, but the flavours don’t carry the same weight, leaving a disjointed beer, which I think is inferior to standard duvel..
