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.

MoritzF (8639) - Bochum, - JUN 30, 2013
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond and huge foamy head. Pale malty and slightly sour doughy aroma with present notes of lemongrass, grapefruit, citrus and a flowery touch. Mildly sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Pale malt-character with grapefruity and flowery hops, combined with a Belgian yeasty touch; mildly bitter and intensively fruity hoppy finish with herbal and flowery spots and a muted alcoholic strength. 29.VI.13

Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus, floral, earthy and bready. Taste is mild bitters with a sweet crisp finish. Good carbonation with the alcohol well hidden. I enjoyed the citrus characteristics.

Clear golden, frothy white head. Fresh, peachy aroma. Flavour starts off fruity, then quickly turns more bitter. Bittersweetcitrus, quite clean, lightly spicy. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel.

Bottle, 9.5%. Mild grapefruit aroma, dusty, peachy. Clear golden colour. Very big stable creamy and fluffy white head. The flavour is citric and dusty. Has a little cat urine, but not bad. Good malt base, slightly grainy. And a good alcohol level to balance.

Sięgnąłem po to piwo z ciekawości. Nie jestem wielkim fanem tego stylu. Belgijskie klimaty zdecydowanie bardziej podchodzą mi, gdy mają niższą zawartość alkoholu. Ale.. Każde piwo ma u mnie szansę ;) Jasny, jaskrawy kolor z niewielką pianą - tak wyglądało w szkle. Zapach kojarzył mi się z trawą i cytryną. Chwilę odczekałem, żeby piwo się ogrzało i przyszedł czas na pierwszego łyka. Cytrusy rozszalały się na całego, mocno odczuć dała się goryczka. Duvel Tripel Hop ma też dość wysokie wysycenie! Ogólnie bardzo ciekawy smak i przyjemne w piciu, jednak alkohol zdecydowanie za bardzo dawał się odczuć. Na szczęście była to butelka 330ml, gdyż większa zarówno z uwagi na zawartość alkoholu jaki i stosunkową "ciężkość" byłaby trudna do wypicia.

Deep yellow color, big white fast falling head, transparent, very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma very hoppy (grassy, crisp, citrus, spice, a bit yeasty, some caramel notes). Palate: high carbonation, full body, a bit oily, bitter hoppy finish, Taste: Spicy, nice intensive hops, medium bitterness at the end, notes of alcohol.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 (Bottle 0.33 l / half of a bottle) Pure, pale gold colour, transparent. White, thick, medium sized head, medium fast falling to stable, thick foam. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a bit oily texture. Aroma is sweet with medium to strong aroma of spicy and grassy hops and medium notes of tropical fruits. Light aroma of pale malt. Moderate aroma of alcohol but not unpleasant. Taste: Medium hoppy, moderate alcohol, pleasant malty, not too strong sweetness, pale malts. Medium strong, very pleasant bitterness, long lasting. Finish is bitter, hoppy but unfortunatly a bit alcoholic. Interesting beer with hoppy character but definitly this bootle was too old, hoppy aromas are muffled.

Poured into a teku glass from bottle showing a dark straw and practically opaque yellow with a very generous white foam head. The nose shows a lot of sweet malts, lemon zest along with small hints of brett. The palate is full bodied and very malty. The hops also give a sort of bright bitterness that appears on the end but well supported by a malt back-bone and sweetness. The finish also shows a quickly dissipating spiciness.

Intéressant cette version triple hop de duvel. On garde l’amertume caractéristique de la maison avec un houblon plus prononcé. Une légère acidité qui diminue un poil mon plaisir.

While I like very much the 2014 edition of that beer, I have to say I was quite disappointed by this one... So either the Sorachi Ace is not my favourite hop, or maybe the bottle is too old... Nose and taste are quite week, a strange raisin, almost champagne or white wine after taste, hops are weak... Drinkable but nothing more...
