The_Mango_Kid (39) - - MAR 31, 2014
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.

PlutonowyMan (479) - POLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Kolor z?oty z delikatnymi pomaranczowymi przeblyskami, nieznacznie m?tny. Piana bia?a, wysoka, bardzo trwa?a, pozostawia mnóstwo w?sów. Aromat bardzo bogaty i intensywny, cytrusy, dalej troch? topików i borówka. Borówka to chyba najwi?ksze zaskoczenie, bardzo wyra?na. Smak: pieprz, lekka przyprawowo?? i sporo owoców. Ponownie sporo cytrusów, jest grapefruit cytryna, limonka, jest borówka i lekka nuta tropików. Jest s?odko z lekko kwaskow? kontr?. Grapefruitowa, sucha goryczka. Wysycenie wysokie, pasuje, alkohol idealnie schowany.

The_Osprey (6324) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
The 666th rating of this beer. Win. Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Duvel Tripel Hop #4: Mosaic’, 9.5%. Many thanks to Bryan. Clear yellow, sparkling, foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is rubbery, citrussy, melon, lemongrass, dried hop flowers. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is much smoother than the others in the series. Floral, citrus hops, biscuity malts, soft alcohol. The best in the series by quite a way for me – has the best balance at least. I would revisit this one, but not so the others.

Banzale (22) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2016
Coffret tasting box 2016. Acheté à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. #4 du coffret. Couleur clair ( un peu trouble ?) . Belle mousse qui tien bien. Au nez arôme de houblon plutôt présente et senteur d’alcool je trouve . En bouche goût fruité léger ! Plus on avance plus le goût ce révèle ! Fruité amer à point ! Pas trop mais pas trop peu. Rafraîchi très bien !

mice (801) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Täysin kirkas hailakankellertävä olut kohtalaisella valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu hieman tunkkainen, runsaan viinikumimainen, vaalean maltainen ja valkoviinimäinen. Maku jatkaa samalla linjalla. Hieman tunkkainen, sitrusmainen, kohtalaisesti hiilihappoja.

Leighton (18522) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Islington - London. Many thanks to Bryan! Pours clear yellow with a foamy, white head. Lovely snout, light dank hops, some citrus, melon. Medium sweet flavour with more melon, grapefruit. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, with fresh and juicy hop character, juicy citrus, light pale bread. Good stuff.

Scopey (12504) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle at Craft Islington, thanks to Bryan. It pours clear gold with a thick, foamy white head. The aroma is fresh, juicy, orange, tangerine, light pine and white bread. The taste is crisp, dry, fresh tangerine, orange, bread, grass, alcohol heat and tropical fruit punch. Medium body and big, foamy carbonation. Fresh and juicy. Easily my favourite out the range I tried.

janubio (705) - SPAIN - JUN 24, 2016
Golden colour, with a samll head that fades soon, but leaves a ring all the while, and some lace. Aroma has some tropical fruit (other reviews said lychee, it may be), resine, cannabis of some sweet variety, oranges. Medium body, lively carbonation, slick palate. Taste of oranges, hops, troipical fruits, grass. ENd is bitter, but there’s some sweetnes in it. Having taste only the 2013 version before, I love the triple hops froms Duvel.

Aus der Flasche (Originaledition von 2014) getrunken. Schönes Gold mit immenser Hopfenblume im Glas. Mosaic dominiert in der Hopfenbombe.

sebletitje (9206) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2016
Bouteille 33cl, du pack réedition Duvel, BB 08/2017. Dorée, col blanc crémeux. Arôme au nez plaisant, fruité et herbacé, petite touche de lychee, vert et résineux, malt plutôt belge pils, cara. Palais met de suite en avant les 9% de Duvel, fleuri, vert houblonné, petite note raisin blanc et baies qui garde ce profil belge dans l’approche de base et au niveau des grains.
