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"

Super bier, citrus hop smaakt er subliem in . Veel beter dan die van vorigjaar . Puur belgische bier .

Citrussy sour aroma. Clear golden with a wealthy foamy head. Bubbles keep the beer alive in the glass. Taste is a perfect compromise between bitter and citrus hops, not foregoing the malty sweetness of regular Duvel. This is perfection in a bottle, will be sad to see this edition go... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

THOUGHTS: Still hard to believe a beer this light in color is so full of flavor and has such a high ABV which is barely noticeable in the flavor. Incredible beer. I really hops this one come back. Way better than the classic original. Further proof of the capabilities of the citra hops. Hid alcohol unbelievably well. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a sparkling, golden yellow with a huge, white head that mostly but slowly diminished. The aroma had moderate grain, cracker and pale malt; heavy tropical fruit hops; moderate resinous hops; and light citrus, lemon and pineapple hops; and moderate funky yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and bitter, and moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet and acidic, and heavily bitter with an average to long duration. There was cracker, pale malt, tropical fruit hops, slightly resinous hops, light funky yeast, light citrus hops, lemon and pineapple. The light to medium body was very dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic and astringent finish.

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

Wonderfull taste. Certainly worth buying if you can find it. Not so bitter as the original Duvel, more fruity flavour. Still need to compare with the 2010 version and check the difference.

Wysmienite piwo z bojna i trwala piana tworzaca otoczke na orginalnym tulipanie Duvela. Elegandzka zdobiona i lakierowana butelka, ze zlotkiem na szyjce. Zlocisty kolor tego mocnego chmielonego citra i nietylko belgijskiego ale. Moze i finisz lekko alkoholowy i wyczuwalo sie alkohol ale takze piekny zapach i smak aromatycznego chmielu citra, zatecki takze zaznaczal sie w smaku. Tresciwosc i orzezwiajacy pelny smak byl satysfakcjonujacy. We wspanialy sposob uczcilem tym piwem nowy rok, chlodzac uprzednio to piwo w kubelku z kostkami lodu. Wam tez polecam.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 33 cl. bottle sampled @ ZBF 2012 // (a) clear yellow with a white head // (s) clean, sharp citrus hops, duvel yeast, grass, bitter // (t) slight mellow sweetness at first, touch fruity, melon, touch peach, citrus, hops, light yeast, medium bitterness, floral, grass bitter finish // (b) fitting, nice fizzy carb. fluffy light, not bad / touch too calculated but definetly good //// I have been drinking so much of this one when it was fresh – this is one hell of an unique, interesting and affordable IPA and session beer, that mellow citrus goodness, upped the score to 4.6 – fav. Duvel variation when fresh, lesser with some age on but that one is obvious

Versão lupulada da clássica Duvel, perde um pouco da sua perfeição e equilibrio na versão mais lupulada, mas continua excepcional e faz a alegria dos mais lúpulos maníacos.
