Nice take on a classic beer. The extra hop gives it a nice twitch but also makes it quite high on alcohol. Good beer to try if you like Duvel, but personally I didn’t find it worth trying again.

Bijl (96) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
Nummer 4 uit de Duvel Tripel Hop Tasting Box. Goudgeel, helder, enorme witte schuimkraag met grote bellen. Aromas: Citrus, grapefruit, fruitig, licht kruidig, typische Duvel gist en na opwarming iets mouten. Smaak: Mangozoet, exotisch fruitig, licht scherp (koriander), dudelijke Duvel gisting en een aardige nabitter. De 9,5% alcohol is totaal niet merkbaar en de afdronk is droog en licht bitter. Vol koolzuur uit het midden van het glas. Body is medium. Een iets hoppyer Duvel, dat is het.

Beerheart65 (1322) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2016
Blind-tasted as part of saveur biers tasting pack.Hazy pale straw, white creamy head bout 1-2 fingers, sticky lacing. Aroma is fresh with citrus, winey notes, lime mild blackcurrant. Flavor is medium bitter, mildly sour, light body, mild fruity sweetness, finish dries to citrus bitterness, standard carbonation, crisp and fresh. Dry, frsh, crisp, refreshing. I would try this with fish.

Bottle of 33cl, in a Duvel glass; from the fridge. I’ve tasted this beer a lonbg time ago, so my memories may not be so right. I know that i’ve loved the aroma and taste, beacause of it’s fruity notes... Great one

Découverte dans le coffret Tripel Hop. Couleur jaune clair, et mousse très blanche. Au nez elle sent les fleures fraiches. Au goût elle est douce et fruitée. Bonne dégustation.

Big frothy head, more or less clear colour. The mosaic is very pronounced in the aroma. Very herbal and earthy smell, Belgian yeast also is apparent. But the hops is the dominating thing here, making it also smell really refreshing. Beer is rather highly carbonated and is prickly on the tongue. The belgian yeast flavour is the first thing one tastes but is followed by a load of herbal, grassy and earthy flavours from the hops which lingers for a really long time. The alcohol makes it slightly warming. Excellent beer showcasing one of my favourite hops varieties.

Now rebrewed as Tripel Hop no 4, nose has light caramel, hints of orange, mint and melon, dry-bitter and lightly fruity, peppery hoppiness, bitter-sweet finish.

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.
