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.

Holmen1 (4439) - 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 (4182) - 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 (6364) - 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 (12383) - 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.

Benzai (12326) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2013
Bottle @ t Paultje. A bit hazy yellow to golden color, huge a bit rough white head. Smell malts, citrussy hops, citrus fruits. Taste malts, citrussy hops, a sour hint coming from the combination of hops ending in a slightly sour bitter finish. Hmm it’s ok. Better than the regular Duvel anyway. Medium body, medium carbonation.

erickok (5024) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
Yellow totally clear body and a typical Duvel head: gigantic and big bubbles. Very nice hop mix, grassy, light citric, sweet and refined yet aromatic. Starts light bitter with herbal twist, moves into a stronger, Duvel like bitterness in the end, yet remaining the herbal hop character. Really lifts this classic brew into an refreshing herbal bitter treat. Works surprisingly well, better than the 2012, which was more of an oddity. Nice. (33cl bottle from Bierparadijs)

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAY 6, 2013
Goldgelb mit mächtiger Schaumkrone. Citrus-grasiger Hopfen. Im Geschmack fruchtig-zitronig mit leichter Hefenote. Der Bitterton des Hopfens ist mir eine Spur zu heftig, ansonsten durchaus lecker.

Christian (12545) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
Golden with a big white head. Fruity aroma with lots of lime, some bubblegum and herbal notes. Sweetish citrus peel flavour with herbal and spicy notes and a good bitter finish
