COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops: Saaz, Styrian Golding and Sorachi Ace. "Dry Hopped with Sorachi Ace. 2013 Selection"

Van TRIPEL HOP wordt er elk jaar slechts een beperkt volume gebrouwen, en dit med telkens een andere derde hopsoort. Voor deze 2013-editie selecteerden onze meester-brouwers Sorachi Ace. Deze zeldzame Japanse hopsoort verrijkt het bier met een frisse, exotische en licht fruitige toets.

Seule une quantité limitée de TRIPEL HOP est brassée chaque année, et la troisième variété de houblon change à chaque fois. Pour cette édition 2013, nos brasseurs ont sélectionné le Sorachi Ace. Ce houblon japonais rare enrichit la bière d’une touche fraîche, exotique et fruitée.

Zlotta (1905) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 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, fluffy, stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal aroma of lychee, ginger, lime and grapefruit. Slightly bitter, fruity-grassy, quite floral and a bit herbal taste of lime, lychee, ginger, lemongrass, grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by medium long, quite bitter, dry, grassy, a little yeasty and somewhat alcoholic finish. Medium to full (!) body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very good again, maybe the roundest version I’ve had recently. Seems to have a fuller body somehow as well. Overall the best version in my opinion.

MelvinKalksma (864) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2016
Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, hops, citrus and hay.

Appearance:
Hazy yellow/golden beer with a medium/large white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts and Belgian yeast; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops, citrus and hay.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The Duvel, with its tons of sweet Belgian yeast, and the Sorachi Ace, with its dry and citrus flavour, work so great together.

Well, Duvel is one of my favorites so trying this was a no brainer. It definitely grew on me as I drank it. At first it seemed a little weak on malt but by the end it tasted fine. Now I need to get an original Duvel to compare it.
