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"

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2013 Amazingly strong and fresh citrus aroma. Full body. Fizzy carbonation, like in champagne. Great beer.

Heerlijke variant op de gewone Duvel. Iets frisser, maar ook zwaarder. Daardoor niet per se geschikt om net zo vaak te drinken als zijn ’gewone’ broertje.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry Nobel hops notes with light dill notes with pear notes and some light peppery yeast notes. Taste is also dominated by dill notes with some quite dry Saaz notes with some light dill from the Citra and some pear ester with a peppery yeast finish. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Solid beer with nice dose of Saaz and limited Citra which might not be a bad thing.

thornecb (4164) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Pours gold into a tulip. White head with excellent retention meringues and craters leaving gloppy lacing. Tropical fruit aromas. Dry with sweet tropical fruit upfront turning hot and bready before the lasting bitter earth finish.

EddyBeer1 (760) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2013
Blonde trouble, effervescence forte, typique de Duvel, idem pour le col. Tant au nez qu’en bouche, on est clairement dans le citron avec des notes de pêches et d’épices dont le poivre. Bien que discrète, l’amertume n’en est pas moins assez présente et des plus agréable!

SnakeTown (486) - SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2013
Väldigt ljus som en lager. Doft av citrus humle! Mycket kolsyra och lite för mycket smak av alkohol! Ok

tmoreau (2124) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
750 ml. bottle shared for a fellow beer compatriot’s birthday at Lunar Brewing Co. Elegant and active pour to champagne flutes, displaying a hazed, golden hue, with billowy, white head froth, and thick, clingy suds for lacing. The aroma was floral & mild spice, light fruit & citrus as lemon, with a touch of Belgian yeast scent. Light bodied, effervescent, with subtle but effective alcohol presence. Decent hop bitterness lingered into the finish accompanied by a pleasant dryness. Very nice!

Boekanier (43) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2013
Hoppy version of the famous duvel (2012), hopped with citra hops. Aroma: citrus, alcohol. Taste: sweet and a bit sour, bitter aftertaste. Palate: effervescent, a lot of carbonation, warming. Must have tasted way better a year ago.

Hazy pale gold beer, good white head. Palate is light and airy. Mildly crisp from the fine carbonation. Big saaz hops, mildly grassy and with a little skunk. Nice balance with the citric hops. Lemony orange. In an ideal world more citra would have been good. Yeast. Bitterish floral note. Finishes semi dry. Overall, good stuff!
