Aroma has yeast, bit soapy tones, sweet, lime, mildly lemon and grapefruit, blackcurrant, winey notes, mild eucaluptus. Medium bitter, mild sourness, finish is long fruity and medium bitter, medium body, soft carbonation. Tasty, nuanced, lovely(ment to write lively, but I’ll keep this), great!

Zlotta (1905) - Hagen, GERMANY - 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 (314) - 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 (619) - 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 (191) - 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.

Very pale yellow appearance. The well rounded Amarillo hop is there but seems rather muted. It’s also quite thin and gassy.

Slight/medium aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, orange, hops and citrus.

Hazy yellow/golden beer with a medium/large white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, Belgian yeast and orange; ends slightly bitter with hops and citrus.

A really great addition to the standard Duvel with a flavour that is a hoppy extension. Just as good as the Sorachi Ace and the Mosaic versions, but I guess this is the more commercial viable one.

BeerViking (4100) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Now rebrewed as Tripel Hop no. 1, gold with a lasting fine head, aromas of peach, sage and pepper. Dry and herby-spicy.
