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.

Wild, nice aroma. Refreshing. Full of herbal, yeasty and hoppy notes. Taste is amazing. Sour, wild and bitter in this same time. Lemons, yellow grapefruits, spices and yeasts. Great beer.Very drinkable.

Icedwarf (115) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2014
Licht gekleurd bier met diepe bittere nasmaak die lang blijft hangen. Smaakt naar citrien, fruit, diepe bitterheid.

Vignale (1812) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2014
Flaska från Etre Gourmet. Gyllengul, högt vitt skum, snyggt. Doft av päron, dillkronor, kryddor, jäst. Alkoholen slår igenom en del i smaken. Annars lätt och elegant med typiska Sorachi smaker av dill, gräs och kryddor, men också päron, mandel och en lätt beska med smak av fruktkärnor. Nu är jag ingen stor Duvel Tripel fantast och även om humle tillför något nytt slår alkoholen fortfarande igenom för mycket. Men tänker man bort det är det fina smaker och ett trevligt öl.

Stronger ale. Definitely the appearance of hops in this brew. Smooth as Duvel often are but the hops add a distinctive refreshing flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 18, 2014
Clear, CO2 propelled golden coloured beer with a rocky white medium sized head. Noses of bitter citrus, floral hops and light skunky notes with hints of barnyard and green leaves. Lively on the palate offering bitter grapefruit tasting notes with light sourness and sweetness. Fresh, bit thin texture but full bodied beer. The finish is light dry. Pretty nice!

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!

Pours a perfectly clear, crisp gold with a thin 1/2 inch pillowy white head. Aroma is strong citrus, grapefruit being prevalent with a strong hoppy note as well. Taste begins with a good malt body turning into a grapefruit base with hops added on top of the grapefruit. Palate is as expected, not amazing but not bad either. Overall, compared to the other versions of this, this year’s is the most hop forward.

slightly hazy dark gold with rich lemon cheesecake and spicey herbal noble hops aroma. Full bodied, biting carbonation, Belgian esters, fruity, slight funkiness and tangerine. Long finish. Fab.

EdKing (1760) - 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.

Ar: Dank moss, lemon - some pineapple, pepper. Ap: Clean straw gold, large white head with good retention - chunks of lace, a rocky cap. T: Peach and pineapple, very bright - pepper and moss - some banana, chalky - grainy cracker, lemon - high, spicy bitterness. P: Light body with very high carbonation - finish is very dry. O: A cool twist on Duvel - moss, lemon, and spice accents are a nice addition to the standard flavor profile.
