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.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Bottle at The New Penguin in requisite glassware. Streaming and diaphanous with a whipped white foam. Attractive aroma featuring bath foam, pine, tangerine, parsley and pineapple jelly. Juicy pine, tangerine, biscuit and soapy hop flavour a little too swamped by booze and pepper to truly sing. Lingeringly soapy like a gulp of bathwater. Good, if arguably less than the sum of its parts.

Moravius (276) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2014
Flasche (33 cl) von einem belgischen Delhaize-Supermarkt, 9 Monate im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Strohgelb, klar. Die Nase ist geradezu überwältigend: intensive tropische Früchte, Grapefruit und Kiefernharz. Der Antrunk dann überraschend kandiszuckersüß, leicht zitronensauer und harzig herb. Die wuchtige Hopfenherbe (bittere Grapefruit, Harz) reibt sich geradezu an dem harten, kreidigen Mundgefühl. Kein weiches, süffiges Tripel wie so viele, sondern „hard to drink“. - Ein Extrembier, nur in kleinen Schlucken zu genießen, hart im Mund und von extremen Gegensätzen geprägt, auf seine Weise großartig aber nichts für jeden Tag.

11.2oz bottle. Golden, cloudy appearance. Great aroma of citrus. Sweet taste with a short and dry finish. Excellent beer

From the 11.2 fl. oz bottle marked 09-2015-L9282-1403. It pours champagne golden yellow with a white fizzy head that dissipates quickly. Carbonation never stops. The aroma is grape-like with other citrus characters, grassy hops, and biscuit malts deep down behind it all. The body is light and bubbly. The taste has a definite citrus or floral hop like finish. Like I suggested up front, it is very much like champagne.

Moolesen (107) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Nice golden with a perfect "2 finger" white head. What a great nose of american hops (I know the 3rd type is Japanese). I really like this. So different from the regular Duvel trippel, which is not type, but this one.... Wauw. What a great taste where the hops are dominant withcitrus and some fresh grass. Long bitter finish. Great IPA.

Top! Excellente, rien à redire. La gamme "tripel hop" est toujours réussie, mais 9.5° quand même! C’est costaud, et c’est son seul défaut: l’alcool trop présent.

EdKing (1756) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle from Dranken Pauwels. Ever so slightly hazy amber, big foam white head. Nose is pretty amazing. Bubble gum, lychee, gooseberry, slight grassy hay, malt grain cereal. Taste is wow... a lot going on. I’m getting gooseberry and lychee from the hop, then some bubblegum, sourness and bitter green hop leaf, bit of nettle, then underneath all that Duvel’s light Brett, crisp dry character. The nose is amazing, and the taste is pretty full on but not sure the balance is there. It’s a bit crazy. On the finish it’s nettle, acidic, hop bitter and some linger Sorachi lychee and bubblegum.

mjakopa (176) - Maribor, SLOVENIA - JAN 25, 2014
This was the Duvel I’ve always wanted! Nice sweet/hoppy fruity aroma with a lovely full body and a strong dry hoppy aftertaste. The hops come out on this one, but it’s not your regular IPA, having the classic Duvel taste in the background. And clocking in at 10% abv, this can get out of hand fast, but it’s well worth it!

Icedwarf (101) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Licht gekleurd bier met diepe bittere nasmaak die lang blijft hangen. Smaakt naar citrien, fruit, diepe bitterheid.
