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.

Heerlijke fruitige geur. Fleugje citrus. Zoet en beetje zure afdronk. Met een klein bittertje erin. Stevig biertje qua alcohol. Body is wat minder. Lekker biertje.

minihame2 (166) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 19, 2014
Hazy yellow body, thick white head. Aroma is weak, fruit and floral notes. Nice taste, hops in the beginning, ends with some bubbe gum/hard candy sweetness. Soft mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

Changed (342) - Ithaca, New York, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from De Klein Duivil. Pours hazy gold, fluffy white head, lacy. Aroma is lemony, mint, yeast, some hop. First off, the mouthfeel is straight creamy- flavor is mint, metallic, lemon, slightly tart, hopped Belgian. What a great beer. So drinkable at 9+% that it’s not even funny. Excellent beer!

Good quaff, not overly hoppy though. Great beer, recommend with food, especially during the summer with the grill fired. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 6, 2014
Big white head. Hazy pale yellow body. Metallic herbal toffee aroma with lemony notes. Dry, and somewhat sweet, lemony toffee taste with metallic notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, slightly hot mouthfeel. Dryish bready lemony metallic aftertaste with funky herbal notes. It’s quite nice and fairly drinkable. Bit much metal and lemon for my tastes. (0.33l bottle, from Toft Vin, Copenhagen.)

Metalchopz (2121) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
SAQ private import - 2013 edition (Sorachi Ace). Pours a cloudy light yellow colour with a big white head, great retention and lots of cloudy lacing. Fruity nose with mostly lemons. Belgian Ale yeast with light spices and the fresh grassy hop. The taste is an even better blend of these things. Refreshing mouthfeel with a beautiful light dryness in the finish. Duvel is already good. Now, this hop added to it just makes it better, fresh and fruity.

Pours a unclear blond with huge white head. Aroma is citrus, lemon, pear, floral, white grapes and spicy belgian yeast. Citric mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is citric, dry floral, metal and lasting alcohol/hop bite. Overall: excellent.
