De duvel tripel hop van 2014 is een hoppig met een straffe bitterheid. Het aroma is uitgesproken bitter met maar een lichte citrustoets. In het aroma is vooral een aangename kruidige geur aanwezig die doet denken aan brandnetels of het groen van wilde kruiden. Het uiterlijk is troebel blond met een volle schuim kraag. De smaak is bitter maar aangenaam, ook al mis ik wat frisheid. Het gebrek aan frisheid wordt dan wel weer goed gemaakt door een aangenaam sprankelend mond gevoel. Een verrassend hop bier dat zelf ik kan appreciëren hoewel ik geen voorkeur geef aan bieren met een uitgesproken hop smaak.

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 11, 2016
Bottle. Clear golden/yellow with huge fluffy head (as on every Duvel). In aroma citrusy and flowery. In taste nice tangerine and peach mix. Light body, dry and lightly bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden. New wave hoppy Duvel should be in normal offer, this is that good.

Bottle acquired as part of a Christmas beer package from an aunt. I believe it was assembled at a Haskells. Consumed in my favorite Belgian glass straight from an amazing bar in Brussels. Kind of excited that it’s the 2014 variety to see if any aging has impacted the beer. Pours a hazy lighter golden color with a healthy does of frothy white head. Serves as a heads up that this one will sport a pretty nice lacing throughout consumption. The aroma is grassy with notes of citrus. Fairly light nose which surprised me. Taste is, for lack of a better word, tangy with notes of citrus like lemon and tangerine. Maybe a little bit of a floral quality. Plenty of alcohol making its presence felt especially in the aftertaste. Hoppy characteristics kind of lay in the weeds until the finish. Definitely seem to wake up as the beer warms up. Overall, I’m kind of disappointed. Would have liked to taste this one on tap rather than the bottle variety.

McWorta (1289) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 24, 2016
Crystal clear and bright golden offering a large well lasting fluffy white head. Aromas of citrussy, grassy and grapefruit zest with notes of cereal tdevelop. Also offers notes of tropical fruit like mandarine. Rather effervescent with a slick texture and a full yet elegant body. Light cereal-straw sweetness with a fruity hop bitterness. Rather lasting light dry bit astringent finish.

The nice belgian blonde Duvel is there in the base. Quite interesting to add a more hops . I prefer the regular Duvel i think...

FROTHINGSLOSH (6197) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant dark golden color with an enormous fluffy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart and effervescent with a yeast note, a bit of mustiness and a tangy citric hop presence. The flavor was tart, spritzy, tangy and citric with perfumey hops and a dry, musty and yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.
