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"

Tasting box n°2. Sur l’apparence, on sur une duvel, blonde pale, beaucop de mousse. Nez de levure Duvel et citron. La bouche est fortement sur les agrumes, citron et pamplemousse, toujours le gout duvel en arrière bouche. Moins bien que dans mon souvenir, l’aspect fortement citronné est un peu écoeurant ...

Zlotta (1587) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2016
0.33 l bottle from ’Mitra’ (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) as part of the tasting box, best before August 2017. Clear, pale straw yellow with a greenish touch and a massive, frothy, stable, white head. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal aroma of lychee, lime, some grapefruit and fresh grass. Sweetish, fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal taste of lime, lychee, grapefruit, pineapple and fresh grass, followed by a medium long, slightly yeasty, a little herbal and quite dry finish with a touch of alcohol. Medium body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very refreshing despite its high abv, drinks way too easily as well. Very good!
