COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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"

2012 Vintage - 750 ml bottle - Very effervescent with long lasting head. Aroma of lemon, hay & hops. A hop forward Belgian golden with unusual combination of hop flavors. Not a fan of Citra, but the spicy notes of Styrian and Saaz provide a nice finish. Much preferred the previous vintages with more traditional continental hop profile.

A great variant of the original. I was lucky enough to land 3 or 4 bottles of this. Not as clear as the original Duvel and has much more flavor. In typical Duvel fashion the high ABV is masked by hops, spice and citrus. Great beer.

33cl bottle, taken from notes. APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, nice stable white head. NOSE: some alcohol, citra clearly noticeable, bitter, some passion fruit even? TASTE: citra clear again, very fruity, balanced, hoppy. This hop goes really well with the Duvel!

Wysmienite piwo z bojna i trwala piana tworzaca otoczke na orginalnym tulipanie Duvela. Elegandzka zdobiona i lakierowana butelka, ze zlotkiem na szyjce. Zlocisty kolor tego mocnego chmielonego citra i nietylko belgijskiego ale. Moze i finisz lekko alkoholowy i wyczuwalo sie alkohol ale takze piekny zapach i smak aromatycznego chmielu citra, zatecki takze zaznaczal sie w smaku. Tresciwosc i orzezwiajacy pelny smak byl satysfakcjonujacy. We wspanialy sposob uczcilem tym piwem nowy rok, chlodzac uprzednio to piwo w kubelku z kostkami lodu. Wam tez polecam.

The head is ok, the body yellow and cloudy. It smells citrus, sour, lemon, peach, grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity, citrus, bit bitter. Ok.

Yellow appearance with decent head. Strong hoppy citrus, lemons aroma, grassy notes. Well rounded in the mouth, overall a really Belgian Pale Ale.
