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.

GBZ59 (1129) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - FEB 19, 2014
Botella de 330ml. Copa Tulipa amplia de Duvel. Color oro pálido y cristalina. La espuma blanca permanece como una fina capa en la superficie. Aromas de intenso pomelo, resinas subyacentes, anís y levadura Belga redondeados por notas de pimienta, hierbas, terrosas, de almendras amargas y fruta tropical. La entrada vivaz y azucarada es barrida por gentiles lúpulos cítricos y notas de fruta madura. Cuerpo medio/ligero y carbonatación moderada/alta. Textura oleica. Sutil astringencia de piel cítrica y almendras amargas permanece en el final amargo/dulce. Retrogusto afrutado con recuerdos de madera verde y resinas. Sensación alcohólica agradable y bien integrada. Una cerveza de refrescante asimilación pese a su graduación. 330ml bottle. Duvel Oversized Tulip glass. Pale gold, clear appearance. White froth remains as a thin layer on top. Intense grapefruit, underneath resin, anise & Belgian yeast aromas rounded by notes of pepper, herbs, earth, sour almond & tropical fruit. Crispy & sugary upfront is swept out by gentle citric hops & ripe fruit notes. Medium to light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily texture. Subtle citric zest & sour almonds astringency linger into a bitter/sweet finish. Fruity aftertaste shows memories of green wood & resins. Well integrated & kind alcohol. Refreshing drinkability.

Overall is perfekt. One of the best limited edition beer from Belgium and of course from the Duval Brewery.

JonnyConga (87) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Looks good. Not as hoppy aroma as I thought there’d be. Tastes very fresh. Great carb. Tastes like a Belgian strong ale - as expected. Not too boozy. A tasty beer but think I prefer normal Duvel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, 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 (484) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 8, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2014 Flasche (33 cl) aus einem belgischen Delhaize-Supermarkt, 9 Monate im heimischen Keller gelagert. - Strohgelb, klar, enorme Schaumkrone. - Die Nase ist geradezu überwältigend: intensive tropische Früchte, Grapefruit und Kiefernharz. Der Antrunk dann überraschend kandiszuckersüß, intensiv zitronig-fruchtig und harzig herb. Die wuchtige Hopfenherbe (bittere Grapefruit, Harz) reibt sich förmlich 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. Gewöhnungsbedürftig aber auf seine Weise großartig.
