guzgorog (684) - FRANCE - JUN 13, 2016
Tasting box 1. Robe Duvel : jaune pale, limpide, haute mousse blanche tenace. Nez sur les agrumes : mandarine, orange, pamplemousse. Attaque comme une duvel, levure et épice, légèrement poivrée, puis les houblons se révèlent sur des multiples saveurs d’agrumes : orange sanguine, pamplemousse, mandarine, citron vert. Belle amertume, alcool présent mais pas tant vu la teneur alcoolique. Excellente bière comme à chaque pour la tripel hop !

erickok (5275) - 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)
