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"

I like the idea of changing hops each year (no rush, after all), but not as much as like using enough hops to make the aroma really stand out. This one achieves it while earlier versions did not, IMO. Now there is not much doubt: You stick your nose in that big bulbous tulip and there is citrus-hop saying HOWDY. Looks beautiful as per usual, plus the usual floral, grain and alcohol notes. Very lively and a bit sweet, finishing hop-bitter and liquor-hot. Imperfect but fun.

Lore (2091) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2016
typical Duvel appearance of hazy, very pale yellow colour and huge, though not too dense and stable head; aroma of bread, floral-honey notes, grapefruit, orange zest oils, maybe pineapple, hints of sauerkraut and piney notes; taste is basically the same; brilliant beer from Duvel again!

0.33l bottle. Clear pale golden body, thick white head. Aroma of sweet bread, honeydew melon, grapefruit, blackberry and floral hops. Taste of bread, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, honey and floral hops. Very nice beer. Given that Citra was used in lots of beer in the recent years, I thought it won’t amaze me that much, but I was wrong. It really fits this beer.

McWorta (1460) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2016
Bright golden with a large white frothy head. Aromas of lemon, grapefruit and orange up front with hints of lime, mango, passion fruit developing further down a noticeable papaya aroma. Effervescent, slick and full bodied. Medium sweet with a light acidity and pronounced bitterness. Lasting zesty bitter finish, could showcase more of the hops.
