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"

Pour a hazy straw yellow beer with a quite big head. Aromas of pure Citra: passion fruit, strawberry, bubblegum and pine. Taste is bittersweet hop juice with passion fruit notes and yeasty background. Palate is a bit oily, silky I would say. Alcohol incredibly well inserted there. Super nice belgian DIPA.

Blond légèrement voilée, mousse aux bulles minces typique de Duvel. Odeurs fruités, sucré: fruit de la passion ananas, cerises rouges (?) et autre fruits exotique. Épicé. Monté d’épices de toutes sortes au départ, puis amertume et effervescence explose au palais avant de s’estomper et de laisser les arômes prédits par l’odeur, grandement associé au houblon. Ne fait pas son pourcentage, rafraichissante malgré ses arômes complexes et variée.

Clear golden colour, medium white foamy head, soft sweet citrus grapefruit pineaple apple hoppy smell, high carbonation(to much mabey) medium bitter apple mango grapefruit taste, a bit to much CO2 to really enjoy the full taste in my opinion a nice spicy finish

flaska från Etre Gourmete. Gyllenfärgad, klar högt vitt skum. Fantastisk blommig citrusdoft, sött, frisk, syrligt och beskt redan i doften. Smaken lever väl upp till vad doften lovad. Citrusfrisk, lätt syrlig, viss honungssötma men väldigt torr på samma gång med lite kalk. Som en bra torr DIPA eller bättre. Det är ett otroligt gott betyg åt den belgsik ölkulturen att en av de stora drakarna gör öl som den här. Tycker att citrahumlen passar som hand i handske men Duvel tripel. Det är citron i alla former i denna dryck. Juice, zest, inlagda, skalvitebeska. Har svårt att se hur de skall kunna överträffa detta, men är öppen för förslag.

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!
