4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle from Csakajósör, Budapest. A bit cloudy, pale yellow color with medium frothy head. Interesting odor, it’s like an IPA’s. Intensive pine and citrus. The aroma is also strong and intensive. Harsh piney flavour, real lemon aroma which "attacks" at the beginning. Very delicious, hopfans gonna love it. But as this hoppy beginning decays, a big alcohol flavour appears. It’s a nice one. Medium bitter taste. Medium to full body, fizzy carbonation, creamy texture. Dry, hoppy finish. This is a very intereting one. It’s very different from the classic Duvel, and for me it’s better. It’s called Belgian Strong Ale, but I’d rather say, that it’s a Belgian Imperial IPA. The citrus aroma is very intersting, it tastes like it is served with real lemon juice. Gooood one!

sample from bottle at ZBF. new batch from 2016. poured a clear deep golden colour with a white head on top. nose of fresh citrus, crisp malts, spiced yeast, floral notes, grapefruit, mango, and sweet pech stone fruits. this is by far the the best and fruited duvel tripel hop version. and again a example how good and fruited citra hops is. slight yeasty finish. carbonation, very refreshing. a clear winner for me.

Bottle at home. Aroma is citrus, lemon, grassy hops, light pale malt, some peachy notes, mild yeast. Flavour is lightly sweet and moderate bitter. Body is medium. Lovely Citra hopped Belgian Ale, my favourite of the Duvel Tripel Hop serie.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Found some old ratings on paper from an unknown date... pours to a hazy yellow body with a creamy slick white head and nice lacing. The aroma is Belgian yeasty with a subtle hop. Pretty complex. The flavor is lightly hoppy Belgian Duvel yeast with an ultra subtle banana. Soooo complex. The palate is very smooth with a perfect hop bitterness balance. Velvety texture.
