erickok (5183) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2016
The original Tripel hop, back from when most people never had an ipa. Things have changed, a lot. I have never had the original release, but I sure dig this one. The body does loose it’s Duvel dry character and adds sweetness, but it makes for a good beer nonetheless. Still a distinctive big bubble, just not as dry. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Blind-tasted as part of saveur bieres tasting pack. Sparkling, clear golden, just tiny bit hazy, big frothy/rocky white head, sticky lacing patches. Aroma has yeast, bit soapy tones, sweet, lime, mildly lemon and grapefruit, blackcurrant, winey notes, mild eucaluptus.

Zlotta (1841) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 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 fresh grass, lots of grapefruit, ginger and lime. Slightly bitter, floral, fruity-grassy and a little herbal taste of lime, ginger, lots of grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by a medium long, very dry, grassy-bitter, slightly alcoholic and quite herbal finish. Medium body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very good again, but I liked the Citra version a bit more.

Syfher (311) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 8, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Bottle of 33cl, in a Duvel glass; from the fridge. By Duvel Hop tasting box. Great and strong taste of amarillo. The beer itself has a clear, pale orange colour. Notes of heavy hop for aroma. Great one, but maybe a little too strong in taste.

bonkiedeaap (607) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle from blind tasting box bought at Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is yellow/blonde with a nice large white head, with lots of bubbles. The aroma is fruity (grapefruits, oranges and citrus), floral and has hints of spices. The taste is light sour and very fruity with notes of flowers and spices. The finish leaves a medium bitterness and nice fruity sourness which is long noticable.

Bijl (149) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2016
Duvel tripel hop tasting box. Goudgeel helder, veel CO2, volke witte schuimkraag.....foamy schuim...blijft heel lan aanwezig. Aromas: Floraal/bloemen, onder de hops vandaan wat Belgische gist, ietsje scherp en kruidig. Smaak: Licht kruidig en peper ...prikkelt op de zijkant van je tong. Fruitig, grapefruit/Citrus, ietsje zuur en wat houterig en grassig. Een aardige nabitter van de hops maar toch ook fruitig zoet in de nasmaak. Medium body....drinkt makkelijk weg deze nummer 1 met Amarillo 3e hop.

Zag nu dat ik de tripel hop aan het invoeren ben dat ik deze nuet heb ingevoerd, zeker weten gehad te hebben maar ik zou niet meer weten waar ik de rating snel kan terugvinden toch voor mijn app. Administratie toegevoegd met gemiddelde waarden. Zoek de echte rating binnenkort op.
