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.

Hazy pale gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and crisp. Minerals. Nice blend of classic and new hops. Herby green hops balanced by semi bitter lemon Sorachi. Straight up noble hop bitterness. Dry crisp finish. Overall a slightly astringent beer. Interestiing!

Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle @ Hj Hansen, Odense. Pours cloudy yellow with a large full head. 5 minutes since I poured and its still standing awesomely in my Duvel glass. Amazing nose and flavor. Belgian yeast, grass, mild funk and super fresh hops. Exotic hops. Mild warmth from alcohol. Dangerously drinkable. I really think the Sorachi hop suits this beer.

harrisoni (13577) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at Terre de Boissons, Calais. How come this isn’t a double IPA? Clear pale gold lasting thin white head. Soapy hoppy aroma. Belgian esters mix with the pungent Sorachi Ace to create something that is interesting. Drinakble Duvel flavour. Depends on whether you like Sorachi Ace hop flavour I guess. I’m pretty neutral, if it’s done well then it’s good, if it’s done badly, then it’s very obvious. This has the Duvel drinkability with some extra hoppage. Right, I prefer regular Duvel definitely. It’s decent, good if you like that kind of thing, definitely nothing you’d take against. Not a fan of the SA soapiness.

Bottle at home - thanks to Sune. Clear golden - white head. Light malty, light bitterness, ok malty, spicy hoppy, light sweetness, pear, light glue sharpness, eastery. Not bad.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle, 33cl. A clear one, topped by a white head. Golden in color. Quite grassy aroma with white sugar and some yeast hints. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, with grass, white sugar and some pale malts. Full body, dry and quite effervescent. Bitter finish. Sure a nice one, but I’d like more pronounced hops. 131129
