sir__v (2165) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle @ home from Tripel Hops Tasting Box from Cash Flandre Artois, Auchy-les-Mines. Color: clear golden blond beer with high carbonation and medium white foam. Typical as a Duvel. Smell: grassy and hay domination. Alcohol boozy finish. Taste: medium body with good sweet malt backbone balanced with grassy hops. Dry boozy finish. Astringent alcohol. So strong... Not so fruity. Aftertaste: astringent alcohol. Boozy.

Duvel à l’amarillo en troisième houblon de couronnement. Abv de 9,5 %. Mon exemplaire était à 10 mois avant sa date. Couleur jaune d’or brillant, à la clarté pure, cristalline. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale et alentour, par centaines. Mousse blanche, à flocons fins, stable à 12 mm. Arômes très jolis de houblon fleuri, zeste de citron, malt clair. 1ère bouche souple à l’entame correcte sur le houblon, mais pas très liée. Arrière-bouche à l’amertume un rien piquante. 2ème bouche équilibrée, avec une pointe de tabac. Arrière-bouche à la belle amertume, mais pas complexe. 3ème avec tabac et tanins, mais pas de vraie harmonie. Arrière-bouche correcte, sans excès. Longueur où la finesse du houblon n’est pas mise en valeur pleinement. Les fruits exotiques sont là, mais débordés. Jambes très collantes. Levure assez épicées, belle ligne. Alcool fort, il gêne parfois la finesse de l’amertume. Finale sans surprise. CONCLUSION : une blonde houblonnée certes correcte, mais décevante par rapport à l’attente sur l’amarillo. De plus, l’alcool pénalise ici la perception de l’amertume...

Vignale (3378) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2016
Tripel Hop #1, flaska från Saveur-bier. Gyllengul, disig, mycket hög och bestående skumluva, vackert. Doften är gräs och örtig, citruszest och lite söta äpplen, honung och fruktkola i bakgrunden. Lite alkohol slår igenom det lite söta fruktiga grundölet får en rejäl match av den beska, krydddiga och zestiga humlen med tydlig beska. Sammantaget torrt med alkoholburna beska smaker. Lite rått och kantigt med väl stor beska men med det sagt ändå helt okej.

Duvel Moortgat by Duvel Tripel Hop #1 - 2010 Rami Rami is drinking a Duvel Tripel Hop #1 - 2010 by Duvel Moortgat at Powiśle Porownanie citry i amarillo. Sa inne. Citra istrzejsza, bardziej cytrusowa, amarillo daje "slodszy" aromat. Bez sikow kocich. Oba bdb.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2016 Bottle (from saveur-biere) as duvel tripel hop 1. Pours hazy yellow with huge white head. The head stays. Aroma is basically the same as classic Duvel: Belgian yeast, fruits and spices, maybe a bit more citrus. Aroma is also mostly classic Duvel: sweet, sour, and bitter, yeast, fruits, spices. There is bit more citrus in flavor and also very faint hint of caramelly notes typical for Amarillo. Overall: this is really similar to the classic Duvel, maybe more citrus in aroma and flavor, but not really that different. I actually prefer the regular one to this.

Kolor z?oty z delikatn? mgie?k?. Piana wysoka, trwa?a, drobno p?cherzykowa. Pozostawia mnóstwo zdobie? na szkle. W aromacie owoce, nuty kwiatowe, jest lekko s?odki. Smak rewelacyjnie orze?wiaj?cy, ?wie?y, ponownie akcenty kwiatowe i owoce cytrusowe. Nie jest to bomba owocowa ale jest pysznie. Na finiszu akcenty przyprawowo pieprzowe. Piwo jest g?adkie, pe?ne w smaku. Goryczka pojawia si? na finiszu, pieprzowa, zio?owa, delikatnie sucha. Wysycenie wysokie, idealnie tu pasuje. Alkohol idealnie ukryty a jest go niema?o.
