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"

Clear gold, moderate to high carbonation, medium white head. Fruit and spice aroma, almost floral. Full and bitter, warming on the aftertaste. Lovely sweet fill - cracking drop.

Fascinating aroma, citrus and spice of the hop blends with the classic pear notes of the yeast to create something new, a sort of herbal mix with strong notes of gooseberry. Flavour and bitterness is much more powerful than conventional Duvel, the classic hint of pear remains but is backed by a moderate bitter punch and a citrus bite.

spacecube (1483) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2013
330 ml bottle, pours a very light yellow orange, a little cloudy, big foamy head and solid carbonation, looks a lot like the classic Duvel. The aroma is dominated by the Citra hop, balanced very nicely with the Duvel’s banana, bubblegum & herby flavour, short bitter finish, very smooth yet complex, a fantastic IPA style Belgian Ale.

lefossoyeur (516) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 3, 2013
Hazy golden blonde with a big frothy head. Superb complex aromas, piney, lemon rind, green, minty and spicy. Very nice. Medium body, beautiful complex hops, rarely tasted citra hops so well domesticated. Never cat-pissy. Good carbonation, long leafy hop finale, spicy, very fresh, minty finale. Top class.

Welley_Alves (228) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 3, 2013
Clássica Golden Strong Ale Belga na sua versão limitada sazonal. A edição de 2012 nos surpreende com uma novidade, Dry hopping do Citra, um das três varietais utilizadas (juntamente com o Saaz e o Styrian Golding). O resultado é uma cerveja surpreendente, desde ja nas minhas favoritas. A coloração nao difere muito da Duvel tradicional, amarelo palha. Mas o aroma, meu Deus! Parece que você esta prestes a desfrutar uma IPA americana das boas. Cítrico, herbáceo, lúpulo, muito lúpulo! No paladar, temos um corpo médio, porém amargo e refrescante, mascarando a quantidade de álcool da breja. O malte e o frutado vem no fim do gole, mas o amargor persiste por bastante tempo, duradouro. Retrogosto seco e amargo, refrescante. Uma cerveja maravilhosa! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Farmyard, earthy, slightly cheesy nose with some fresh citrus. Pours a pale straw-gold with a un-duvelesque thin head. Flavour is interesting - well-balanced with a steady Duvel sharpness underpinned by freshness from the cintra hop; however, there’s a slight yeasty sourness and the mouthfeel is spoiled a little by over-carbing. Finish is long and dry with zesty orange peel notes and maybe a little wheat-style coriander. And plenty of pepper. Nice. Not amazing, but nice.

pilsnerrogge (2678) - Finspång, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
Pours pale golden with a greenish tint. Head is large and fluffy. Hoppy citrus on the nose. Light and easy drinking body. Flavour is citrus, leafy hops and some butter. Dry finish with some alcohol notes.
