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"

Bought a bottle at the supermarket. Is a yellow/blonde beer with nice large white head, carbonation is wonderfull. In the aroma tones of citrus and flowers and hops. The taste is light sweet with fruity tones of oranges and apples. The finish is robust and substantial yet understated. The bitterness is perfect in harmony with the freshness of lemon. An excellent Strong Ale, nearly as good as the standard Duvel

I thought that this would have more malt warmth. The Citra aroma is there, and this possibly makes the overall top note a sour one, and with no balance of warmth this ends very dry. Has a really full fluffy mouthfeel, with is one of the highlights. Both glad that I have this, and sad that it’s just not better.

stefannilssons (1458) - SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2013
Det här var en rätt konstig sak som tog en stund att smälta eller komma in i . Smaken var träig med toner av sasafras, krydda och citrus, kroppen var stabil och balansen var klart närvarande.

0,33l fles gedeeld met James. Typisch duvel zuurtje met de citra hop. Best lekker, maar ik prefereer toch een goede ipa

promontor (67) - HUNGARY - OCT 23, 2013
0,33 bottle bought and drunk in Brussels. Very pale colour, a bit hazy. Small head. Extremely fresh aroma with amazing fruity character. it’s like a fresh fruiy white wine indeed. Amazing. Carbonation is too much for me but is compensated by a mixture of dry hopiness and moderately fruity white-wine-like character. One of the most dry-white-wine-like beer I ever tasted. Aftertaste is mostly bitter. Would be perfect with less carbonation. Maybe its perfect this way, too. (Originally rated on November 2012 in the wrong place, copied here later...)

aletcm (116) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 16, 2013
Cor bem dourada. Boa formação de espuma, com bolhas grandes. Aroma predominantemente herbáceo, lúpulos muito presentes. Aroma cítrico também , provavelmente em virtude da mistura de diferentes lúpulos. Sabor de ervas de tempero, um pouco cítrico, médio dulçor. Pela graduação alcoólica-9,5%- o álcool não predomina no sabor. Pelo contrario, a cerveja é bem refrescante. Muito boa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours golden with a thick white head. Biting citric aroma. Taste is lemons and yeast. Finish is yeasty and bright.
