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.

jamestulloch (3103) - 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.

bonkiedeaap (581) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from Blind Tasting Set bought at Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is yellow/blond colored with a large white head and a lot of carbonation, very nicely done. There is an inviting aroma of grassy hops, suggesting grapefruit, lemon zest, light stone fruits and a little gentle spiciness. The taste is a delicious mouthful of juicy fruits and floral, grassy hops, supported by a solid malt base. There a flashes of pepper, that wake up your taste buds as the beer dries out really well, to leave a long, gentle bitter finish, which stays for a long time. Oke beer, but Citra and Amarillo were way better.

Bijl (96) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
De 3e uit de Tripel Hop Tasting Box met Sorachi Ace als 3e hopsoort. Goudgeel helder, volle witte groffe schuimkraag. De geur is fruitig, ietsje scherp en kruidig, citrus, ietsje mout, een hint van Belgische gist en iets aarde. De smaak begint zoet en fruitig, daarna rode peper die prikkelt op de tong, kruidig en een redelijke bitter. Op het einde blijft voornamelijk de zoet hange. Veel CO2, lichte body....iets waterig en droog in de afdronk. Ik vind deze lekker maar de vorige 2 waren beter.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Zlotta (1337) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 0.33 l bottle from ’Mitra’ (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) as part of the tasting box, best before August 2017. Clear, pale straw yellow with a greenish touch and a massive, fluffy, stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal aroma of lychee, ginger, lime and grapefruit. Slightly bitter, fruity-grassy, quite floral and a bit herbal taste of lime, lychee, ginger, lemongrass, grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by medium long, quite bitter, dry, grassy, a little yeasty and somewhat alcoholic finish. Medium to full (!) body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very good again, maybe the roundest version I’ve had recently. Seems to have a fuller body somehow as well. Overall the best version in my opinion.

Découverte dans le coffret Tripel Hop. Très claire avec une mousse blanche. Pas très florale au nez, moins oublonnée que les autres versions.
