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.

(bottle) pours a murky golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head. aroma of lemons, black pepper and herbal hops, with a hint of straw and grass, also quite earthy. flavour is mostly the same, with some notes of bubble gum, tangerine and lime, slightly alcoholic, with a medium-bitter lemony finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

DSG (11246) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 14, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2016 Re-rate 4/16: Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Tasting of Duvel Tripel Hop 2016 six pack. Slightly soapy fruity hops, not aromatic enough. Spiciness. A bit sweetish. 6/3/7/3/14

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Hazy golden with a big white head. Lovely hoppy aroma, fruity, with a bit of lemon, lemongrass, earthy notes and a bit of flowers. Dry-ish flavor with faint sweetness, some fruitiness, floral notes, light spiciness and and a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Really good and delicate, alcohol is not really noticeable. 8/4/7/3/15=3.7

thanatosti (1425) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Hazy golden with a huge white head. Spicy melon and pineapple aroma with some freshly cut grass. Taste is familiar Duvel with a hoptwist, just like it was meant to be. Perfect for a long hot summer afternoon.

Holmen1 (4618) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg delt med Ovesen: uklar lys gylden, med Blendahvitt skum. Aroma av lime og sitrondrops (+ørlittegranne kattepiss fra Sorachi Ace-humlen). Bruser i munnen, med lime- og grapefruktsmak. Foretrekker så absolutt den klassiske Duvel. Nytt forsøk på Mandag i annen, takk til Strag: bedre enn jeg husker, både i aroma og smak. "Voldig bra aroma" iflg Arne. Lukter nyslått plen og sitrongress. Foretrekker fortsatt klassikeren, men opp fra 2.9 til 3.3.

Vaiz (4184) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle at Cafe de la Gare. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is sharp floral hops with some grass and peppery with some gas. Flavor is spicy with grassy hops in the finish. A bit messy and quite out of balance.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Light hazy golden with a huge, frothy white head. Distinct, intriguing, oily, peculiar hop aroma of petrol, rancid butter, coconut, citrus and dill. Light accents of yeast, malts, hay. Sweet flavor, very spicy with dill accents, grass, citrus and a medium bitter finish. A tad too sweet, but better than the original. Better than many a harshly Sorachi Ace hopped beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

caesar (6423) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2013
Bottled. Almost clear yellow color, medium frothy head. Aroma is grassy, spicy of Duvel yeast. Soft flowery notes, lavender like from Sorachi Ace. In taste it’s dry and bitter, spicy crisp. Sweet flowery note again from the Sorachi Ace. Very sharp finish. It definitely adds something, but again, it does not fit the style at all.

mcberko (12931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, pours a hazy gold-tinted yellow with a large white head. Aroma of spicy hops and Belgian yeast, and some doughy malt. Flavour bring out loads of spicy hops, Belgian yeast, and cereal malt -- perhaps a tad spicier than the 2012 rendition. Very flavourful and highly drinkable. Great stuff.
