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.

Editors note: clearly distinguishable, in a circle on the label it reads "Dry Hopped with Citra 2012 Selection"

Dorata, schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma citrico dato dal Citra in dry hopping, pompelmo, frutti tropicali, pepe, zucchero candito, lievito belga, frumento leggero. Al palato si avvicina molto alla Duvel classica, leggermente "piccante" lievito belga è molto zuccherina. Corpo medio, mediamente carbonata.

ForlornHope (218) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
33 cl bottle at home. Found this hiding in a cupboard with a BBE date of Jan 2015. Pours in the usual Duvel way, also looks like one. Aroma is sweet, mellow hop, pineapple like and with fruit and yeast. Taste is really nice, some sweetness then lots of dry, bitter hop. Grainy, but the mouthfeel is slightly sticky. No doubt this is one powerful beer, rich and deep with a lot going on. Maybe better fresher for the hop aroma, but very good all the same.

Uma Duvel cítrica, equilibrada, mesmo com o alto teor alcóolico. Saborosa e muito fácil de beber!!!! Pena que estas edições não voltam.

Bottle sample at Duvel Tripel Hop 2015 launch event at Beer & Beyond shop. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Smell of fruity esters, grapefruit, spices, floral, alcohol, overripe fruit and honey. Sweet and fruity with mild bitterness, flavors of mango, papaya, honey and citrus. Medium-bodied, low carbonation, oily mouthfeel. Old but still quite pleasant.

Bottle sample at Beer and Beyond, Tel Aviv. Aroma of citrusy hops, notes of ripe pear and honey with some graininess. Sweet honey flavor, very fruity (pear, grapefruit), honey-ish, grainy and winey, light hoppy bitterness in the finish, semi-dry. Moderate carbonation, medium-bodied. A bit old but still very nice.

Bottle from Auchan Market, Luxembourg City!
Pours strong golden yellow with high, white head. Smell has orange, citrus and grapefruit. Starts hoppy bitter, lovely fruity, lots of orange peel and grapefruit, also some mango. Goes into a fruity and spicy finish, again with lots of orange peel. Nice one, even if I dont like the usual Duvel...
