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.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2014 Poured from bottle at cellar temperature (53F). The beer pours a nice gold color with moderate head. The aroma is a mix of pine and cedar and some lemony citrus from the sorachi ace hops - it’s a very nice enticing aroma. There’s also a bit of spiciness present from the yeast. The taste follows suit with similar profile, but more subdued and very drinkable. There’s also a nice malt sweetness that blends with the hops making a very complex palate. Finishes clean and crisp.

Bottle split at CBC Clerko tasting, thanks to Brian, 07/07/16. Pale yellow with an off white head. Nose is light skunky hop, straw, lemon, grains, yeast esters. Taste comprises bitter orange, white pepper, grass, punchy Sorachi tones, spice, toasted grains, lemon rind. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Ok Sorachi affair.

Bottle 0.33l at home Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thanks to Zlotta for finding this in Mitra. 24.09.2016. Taste as Number Three with Vlada Ciaoooo and Jelena. Pour it hazy yellow color with medium white head. Aroma sweetish Belgian yeast, eucalyptus herbalish kind of rosemary. Taste sweetish, nice Duvel note, Sorachi Ace really present, fizzy carbonation, medium body, long finish with herbalish feel, not my favorite thing maybe. OK

martjoobolut (3147) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle (as Duvel Tripel Hop 3, from saveur biere). Pours yellow with huge whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, lemongrass, spices. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, some malt, some alcohol. Finish is citric bitter. Overall: very good, but not among the best of tripel hops.

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Duvel Tripel Hop #3: Sorachi Ace’, 9.5%. Many thanks to Bryan. Yellow with a slight haze, sparkling, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is pear, melon, some lemon. Body is quite foamy with soft carbonation. Taste, like most of the others in the series, is dry and spicy with plenty of drying booze showing up, some pear maybe differentiating it, but otherwise it’s a spicy booze bomb. (3.1)

McSherman (560) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2016
Hellgelb leuchtend, leicht getrübt mit weißem Schaum. Geruch ist heftig frisch. Der Umtrunk ist bitter herb, sehr trocken. Dann schmeckt man gut die holzig vanilligen und zitrusfruchtigen Aromen des Sorachi Ace. Sehr trockener Abgang. Sehr gutes Bier.

PlutonowyMan (504) - POLAND - AUG 6, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2016 Kolor czysty z?oty. Piana jak zawsze w tym trunku jest ogromna, puszysta i trwa?a, ?adnie zdobi szk?o. Aromat to poprostu Duvel wzbogacony akcentami owocowymi, s? pomara?cze, brzoskwinie, morele, czarna porzeczka i odrobina cytryn. Nie jest intensywny jednak bardzo bogaty. Smak to ponownie, owoce i przyprawy pieprzno korzenne. Owoce które tworz? trzon tego piwa, cho? podobnie jak w aromacie nie nachalne, s? bardzo ró?norodne i bogate. Goryczka wyra?na, cho? niska, zio?owo grapefruitowa. Wysycenie wysokie. Alkohol idealnie schowany.

Banzale (59) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2016
Coffret tasting box 2016. Acheté à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. #3 du coffret. Couleur plutôt blanche au première abord comme la #2 . Un simple col de mousse . Au nez senteur florale ! En bouche nous avons un goût floral ( rose ???) Mais aussi présence de fruit j’ai remarque le litchi tout de suite à cause du l’amertume du fruit aussi sa légère acidité !! Fin en bouche sec! Pour une bière qui je trouve étonnante mais pas fracassante. Dans l’ensemble bien !
