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.

Pours a beautiful clear gold, (as you would expect with Duvel). Large fluffy titanium white head that fades to leave good lacing and retains a little to the end. Good aroma, with the Sorachi ace really coming through, kind of bizarre when your expecting standard Duvel, but very good, with some effervescence also. Also getting alcohol, apricots and Belgian yeasty notes. Tastes strongly of Sorachi, which aren’t my favourite hop, but they work well here. The usual Duvel flavours are present, and seem some what personified, certainly a touch more body also.

The_Osprey (5930) - 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 (517) - 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 (446) - POLAND - AUG 6, 2016
Kolor czysty z?oty. Piana jest ogromna, puszysta i trwa?a, ?adnie zdobi szk?o. Aromat to poprostu Duvel wzbogacony akcentami owocowymi, nie jest jednak mocno intensywny. Smak to przede wszystkim przyprawy pieprzno korzenne i owoce, ponownie nienachalne, delikatne. Goryczka wyra?na, cho? niska, zio?owa. Wysycenie wysokie, poprawia pijalno??, cho? po kilku ?ykach zapycha. Niestety nie uda?o si? ca?kowicie schowa? alkoholu.

Banzale (16) - 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 !
