3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33 cl bottle @ home. Pours like a regular Duvel: almost clear pale blonde color, huge snow-white head. Smells, malty (sweet & somewhat grainy), grassy, tropical fruit (my girlfriend smelled white grapes), somewhat herbal retronasal. Flavor is light bitter (a bit earthy), with some acidity, perhaps due to the high carbonation. Medium bodied, alcohol warms the throat. finishes rather dry, but fairly mild. Maybe not my favorite of the Tripel Hops, but a worthy experiment anyway.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
Pale, but with a lovely frothy white head. Massive fruity tropical aroma - coconut and pineapple. Odd, but I like it. Taste is the opposite - a horror mess - I just don’t like sorachi ace. With all the yeast it becomes saner, it becomes tropical fruit juice. Does cover the alcohol quite well, it’s not boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Gollem. It pours pale yellow with a thick white head. The nose is herbal, mint, lemon, faint aniseed and underlying sweetness. The taste is straw, nice level of bitterness, light herbal, icing sugar, touch of soap and lemon with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, high carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Solid beer, but Sorachi Ace is not my thing......

Bottle. Pale blonde. Lemon, pineapple and apricot in the aroma. Malty, floral hopbitter flavor with lemon and pineapple. Dryish and quite likeable. But more perfumed as the ’regular’ Duvel.
