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"

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

beerbastard (726) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 24, 2013
750ml Bottle, pours pale golden straw color, with a big white head that will disappear soon. Big aromas of grass, fruits, lemon citrus and spicy hop. Great balance of sweet and tart flavors, vinous apples, and lemon lime citrus. Very easy to drink. Smooth dry finish, with spicy hops. Complex.

HopRedHead (393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy golden yellow with a thin white head. Immediate aroma of citrus fruits, banana and green apple over a sweet, muddy Belgian yeast. Taste has lots of lemongrass, touch of grapefruit and a whack of bready malt. Lots of Belgian yeast present. Lingering dry sweetness, interesting beer.

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 (4856) - 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 (4530) - 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.
