vincentvega72 (349) - Terneuzen, - MAY 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Mooi lichtgeel kleurtje, heerlijk fruitig aroma. Geuren van bessen, citrus. Prachtige balans tussen fruitig en het bittere van de hop. (Veel) lekkerder dan een gewone duvel.

mice (171) - 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 (18075) - 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 (12007) - 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 (662) - 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.

Michael27 (573) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2016
Aus der Flasche (Originaledition von 2014) getrunken. Schönes Gold mit immenser Hopfenblume im Glas. Mosaic dominiert in der Hopfenbombe.

sebletitje (9033) - 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.

Blond bier met rijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: tropisch, annanas, kruiden, thee, zweterig, lychee. Smaak: zoetig, tropisch fruit, annanas, sinaasappel, groene thee, droge bitterheid, steenfruit. Goede koolzuurprikkel.

jamestulloch (3299) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 31, 2016
Bottle from Cork & Cask. Clear golden body with a medium white head. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of mango, cannabis and tangerine. Flavour of ’green’ hops, watermelon, nettles and orange. Medium body with a spritzy mouthfeel. Lively fizz. I love Mosaic (it’s probably my favourite hop) but when combined with Saaz and Styrian Goldings it loses some of it’s tropical fruit punch.

Cokemonkey11 (457) - - MAY 30, 2016
Pours medium yellow, opaque, with a thick white foam subsiding slowly. Scent is dense, pure, continuous hops with full bitterness and full flavor. Taste is consistent continuous hopped and full mosaic flavor. Finish is a little dry. Dense beer and very strong flavor. Fantastic.

Bijl (151) - 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.
