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.

PotjeBier (1781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2013
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.

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.

33cl. Bottle. Pours pale clear yellow with big white head. Aroma mint, citrus, herbs, spice, chinese spices, fresh but Taste sour bitterish, spice pepper, very little sweet. Mouthfeel thin. Nice beer. Would go great with chinese or japanese dishes

Scopey (8235) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
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......

bierkoning (10826) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2013
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.
