promontor (104) - - NOV 5, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 0,33 bottle bought and drunk in Brussels. Very pale colour, a bit hazy. Small head. Extremely fresh aroma with amazing fruity character. it’s like a fresh fruiy white wine indeed. Amazing. Carbonation is too much for me but is compensated by a mixture of dry hopiness and moderately fruity white-wine-like character. One of the most dry-white-wine-like beer I ever tasted. Aftertaste is mostly bitter. Would be perfect with less carbonation. Maybe its perfect this way, too. Note on 23 October 2013: Based on the date, this must have been the 2012 Triple Hop Edition with Citra...

McSherman (517) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2016
Hellgelb leuchtend, leicht getrübt mit weißem Schaum. Geruch ist heftig frisch, fruchtig, Apfel und etwas tropische Früchte. Der Antrunk ist bitter herb, relativ trocken. Der Amarillo harmoniert wunderbar mit seiner frischen Feuchtigkeit mit dem trocken bitteren Körper dieses Bieres. Sehr gutes Bier, dem man die fast 10% kaum anmerkt.

The_Osprey (5930) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2016
July 2016 - Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Duvel Tripel Hop 1: Amarillo’. Many thanks to Bryan. Light yellow, highly sparkling, clear, foamy white head, thick white lacing. Aroma is airy, biscuity, breakfast tea with milk. Body is light, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is light malts, spicy, booze, white pepper with a dry, quite abrasive, finish. Booze and yeast, spicy.

Banzale (16) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2016
Coffret tasting box 2016. Acheté à Tabac&co palais des bières dans famiflora à dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. #1 du coffret. Couleur dorée clair . Belle mousse bien tenace. Au nez arôme de houblon plutôt simple . En bouche nous avons un goût d’amertume mais pas immédiat . Il arrive progressivement pour que ce sois moelleux en bouche ( c’est mon avis ) Très bien et peu plaire à ce qui ne sont pas habitué à de tels goûts.

harrisoni (17146) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle from Terre de Boissons and drunk at home. Part 1 of the Duvel Triple Hop recreation. Clear bright gold colour lasting white head. some esters on the aroma. some peach and lemon yep like Duvel but stronger hotter on the finish. hops are there. some earthy woodiness and bitterness and a little fresh hop flower. really boozy of the finish. a little uncultured on the hop and the hop is a little harsh. I like the Base Duvel beer flavour though. too fizzy

Moolesen (468) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle 33cl. Light cloudy yellow with a nice white head. Good hoppy aroma, but not as dominant as some other american hops. Rich taste, where you taste the alcohol and the bitter hops. Long bitter finish. Good beer. P.S. Tasted this as the re-brewed Duvel ultimate Tripel hop 1

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co Islington - London. Many thanks to Bryan. Pours clear yellow with a frothy, white head. Light dank hops in the nose, melon, grapefruit, pale bread. Medium sweet flavour with rich melon and grapefruit. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Juicy and lightly resinous in the close-out. Real solid stuff.

McWorta (1422) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 17, 2016
Bright golden with a frothy large white head. Aromas of lime and herbal orange notes dominate with hints of lime and grapefruit offering a touch of lychee and papaya. Effervescent, slick and full bodied. Medium sweet with pronounced bitterness offering a lasting dry bitter finish. Using Amarillo you would expect more of its attributes...
