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"

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 (498) - 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.

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 (2633) - 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.

jesperhammer (3495) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr. Pale golden with white head. Sweet hoppy aroma with citrus and a little pine, honey, and licorice. Taste the same. Belgian like yeast and spice. Overcarbonated. Fine mix with the hops but nothing spectacular.

brnandersen (2527) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2013
Sample from 75 cl. bottle. Slightly hazy, golden colour with a small, dense white head. Aroma with citrus hops, exotic fruits, fresh yeasts, fruity malts, a hint of spices. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a good, lively carbonation. Finishes bitter with spices and herbal/citrus hops. Almost as good as the original Duvel.

JulienHuxley (4241) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 27, 2013
Small bottle. Clear pale yellow pour, frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, lots of lemon candy, light eucalyptus, duvel nose (light yeastiness), grass. Taste is fruity, beautiful hop flavor, a bit of corn sweetness, not as clean as the aroma but very nice. Palate is good, classic Duvel, really high carb with med body, easy drinking.
