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.

Bottle sample at a tasting at zvsn’s place, from Duvel Tripel Hop Tasting Box 2016. Clear yellowish with nice white head. The aroma is perfumed with notes of herbs and ripe citrus. Bitter flavor with notes of citrus (orange, lemon), perfumed, a bit alcoholic, yeasty. Oily texture, medium-bodied. Good.

guzgorog (674) - FRANCE - JUN 19, 2016
Tasting box n°3. Toujours une Duvel à l’aspect, RAS. Le nez est légèrement sur la levure Duvel, citronné et une pointe de fruits exotiques. La bouche est principalement sur le citron vert et le pamplemousse. Relativement proche de la TH Citra mais plus équilibrée, on n’est pas écoeuré par les agrumes. Très bonne bière une fois de plus.

Blond bier met rijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: tropisch, passievrucht, amandel, vanille, mango, limoen. Smaak: bitterig, citrus en iets olie achtig, vettig. Goede koolzuurprikkel.

jamestulloch (3290) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of chalk and herbs. Flavour of coconut, crushed paracetamol and hay. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. The Sorachi Ace is nicely integrated here - I’ve never been a fan when it’s used in single-hop beers.
