Den smager ikke meget af Duvel, men har en smag helt over i IPA dog med smagen af belgisk gær. En ren win-win rf0263 (66) - - DEC 21, 2017

330ml bottle [as Ultimate Tripel Hop 3]. Clear, yellow-ish golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, yeasty fruity and malty aroma, notes of apple, pear, a touch of honey, dusty yeasty and hoppy overtones with a touch of coconut. Taste is dry hoppy, sweet malty and yeasty fruity, hints of coconut, pear, apple; minimally alcoholic finish. Oily texture, soft and minimally sticky palate. The Sorachi Ace is slightly better integrated in taste than aroma, but must be deemed as kind of foreign matter and thereby responsible for a certain imbalance in this ensemble.

Nice, beer. Little bit warming, bitter, sweet, a lot of hop aromas. Reminds me a little bit of expensive champagne. Fruity. drino1108 (17) - - AUG 18, 2017

27-05-2017; fles; at home (bought somewhere in Belgium), part of the Duvel Tripel Hop tasting competition. The looks of the beer are nice. The beer looks like any other Duvel beer. The color of the beer is golden yellow. The beer has a tiny cloudiness in it, very minimal though. It is almost clear. The beer pours a thick layer of crispy white foam. The bulk of the foam is rough and collapses quickly but a nice layer of rather soft foam remains.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is completely different from the other duvel tripel hops. The sweeter malty base is pretty much the same. The hop bouquet is totally different. It is not as fruity as the other ones. No citrus, or citrus zest. There is some clack current, but mainly strong oaky and woody aroma’s. I even smell some red wine. There is also a herbal hint to the beer. Not bad. Besides oakwood, I also smell some resinous touches. Not bad, but I like the citric hop versions more.
The taste of the beer is pretty much the same. The same malty base, and on top those hoppy flavours, that are pretty much the same as in the smell. I taste oak wood, some resinous touches...not much else. The beer has a nice sweetness, and quite some clear bitters and acidic touches. It is well balanced. Nice.
The palate of the beer is fine. Nice medium body, smooth with a tiny sticky component, and medium high carbonation. The finish of the beer is nice. There is a nice touch of oak wood, some spices and clear alcohol. The finish is quite long. I like it.
