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.

Murky bright yellow beer with a small and sticky white head. Citrusy aroma - lot of hops, elderflower, alcohol, yeast, some malt. Taste of citrus, grape, plums, yeast, alcohol, hops. Pleasant bitterness and acidity - some sweetness as well. Very decent brew.

Valt wel mee, die van 2012 vond ik net iets beter dan die van 2013, maar het valt mee van smaak

Quite an interesting beer, nothing like the normal Duvel. Stronger than I thought - it hides the ABV very well. Hoppy but not bitter. Sweet, a little sour with tons of citrus: orange, lime, grapefruit. My bottle is a year old but still tastes fresh, and according to the label it still good for another year. Pretty impressive because most hop-forward beers don’t do this well with age. The standard Duvel is still king, but this is a nice change of pace for the summer and I will keep my eyes peeled for the 2014 version. Best served cold.

Blonde et assez trouble, on peut tout de même y apercevoir des particules en suspension. La mousse est assez généreuse et demeure longuement dans le verre en dessinant une jolie dentelle. Des houblons herbacés et fruités émanent du verre, des céréales mielleuses sont également dignes de mention. Très douce en bouche et très fruitée, aucune amertume agressive ou presque n’est détectable. La finale est un peu sucrée. J’étais sûr qu’elle ne tiendrait pas bien la route à cause de son âge, mais étonnamment c’est délicieux.

It pours a bright golden yellow. A tropical fruit hoppy aroma. An almost lemonade scent. A bright white head settles on top. A crispy light hop presence. A big lemon grass all around. Very refreshing. Also a nice bubblegum note soaked in the whole thing. A dry finish. Good stuff.

330ml bottle, BB 10-2015. Pours a lightly hazy golden with a medium and persistent white head that leaves really nice lacing. Nose is of nice fruits, belgian yeast, pepper and light alcohol. Taste is much drier than I expected while still giving the impression of sweetness. Flavors include orange, ethanol and pepper or at least spice again. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Overall a nice BSPA, seems that it did not fade much since its release.

A good american hops version of the classic Duvel, citric, lactic and spicy well, touch of bread and yeast.

Bottle at La Galia in Brussels. Slightly hazy golden, with a big bubbly head, served in a Duvel glass. Grapefruit, dry and bitter, but refreshing. Grapefruit comes out in the aroma, with some zestiness although its not overdone. A nice refinement of Duvel.
