eduardovl (940) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours the traditional pale yellow and bit cloudy color forming a huge bubble, creamy and soapy white head. Infinite retention and lots of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass S: Smell is just perfect. A bomb of flowery and citrus hops. Itís really amazing how the can conserve such a hops freshness. I mean, this is a bottle of 2012 being consumed in 2014. I know thatís not too much but, at same time, the hops freshness in the nose is really impressive. Strong notes of citrus and tropical fruits al well. To be mentioned; orange, grapefruit and passion fruit T: Sweet pale malts in upfront, followed by strong notes of citrus and tropical fruits like orange, grapefruit and mainly, passion fruit. In overall, a standard Duvel, which is dry and crispy. However, this version is a bit bitterer than the regular version. Alcohol is very well hidden here M: Medium to heavy body with good carbonation. Passion fruit aftertaste O: Great drinkability. The best Duvel Tripel hop Iíve ever had (compared with the Amarillo and Sorachi Ace versions). Citra is a bit overwhelming? Yes, it is but in a lovely way... ;) [ BA Review @ 2/19/2014 ]

Flavor is very fresh, notes of yeast, citrus and some acidic notes, very fruity. Citrusy final with a moderate bitterness, slightly dry.

Bosskie (455) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2014
Transparent very light beer with a hay colour, nice head, some carbonation. Coriander and basilicum on the nose with lots of lime, lemon and some subtle saltiness. Subtle caramel or maybe sweet fruitiness. Taste is dry sweetish with again basilicum and lots of lime. Bitter astringent finish. What a delicious beer, canít get it off my mind :-)

The body has a clear golden color on the first two glasses and a pale hazy golden color on the following glasses as the yeast unsettles from the bottom of the bottle. It also has a lot of wonderful champagne like carbonation streaming up to the tall frothy head. This head is white in color and thick. This makes for an excellent long lasting head that clings to the glass and leaves thick sticky lacing behind as I drink. In the nose I get the classic Duvel character with notes of fruity (pear/apple) and funky yeast blended with a bigger more complex hop character. There are nice delicate pilsner like floral hops mixed with spicy and herbaceous hop notes. A mild pine like note also comes and goes in the nose. Behind all of this is a noticeable but expected alcoholic presence. Its flavor matches the aroma perfectly and finishes with a solid dry bitterness slowly fading off the tongue. The firm medium body is lifted by the fine and quite active carbonation which helps to cleanse the palate and keep things light.

75cl fles via Être Alcoholpercentage van 9,5% Uitgeschonken in originele glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met witte schuimkraag, zoals de reguliere Duvel Aroma en smaak: fruitig, citrus, bitterheid Conclusie: Lekkerder als de 2014 en de reguliere bittere Duvel met 2 hopsoorten. De 2013 met zijn lychee-achtige smaak was echter ook heel lekker. Deze is weer lekker fris met de citra hop. In ieder geval heel lekker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The Sorachi version is way better, however, again a good body, malty sweetness balanced with a citric bitterness

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of soap, some cardboard, sourness, strong herbal notes and some grass. Flavour of apricot, chewy citrus, some sourness, grass, herbs and some maltiness. Medium bodied and high carbonation. Some cardboardy notes and also some unpleasant and unintentional sourness due to aging, I guess. Decent.
