McSherman (606) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2016
Hellgelb leuchtend, leicht getrbt mit weiem Schaum. Geruch ist heftig frisch, fruchtig, Apfel und etwas tropische Frchte. Der Antrunk ist bitter herb, relativ trocken. Der Amarillo harmoniert wunderbar mit seiner frischen Feuchtigkeit mit dem trocken bitteren Krper dieses Bieres. Sehr gutes Bier, dem man die fast 10% kaum anmerkt.

The_Osprey (7132) - 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. (3.2)

Banzale (172) - FRANCE - AUG 6, 2016
Coffret tasting box 2016. Achet Tabac&co palais des bires dans famiflora dottignies. Bouteille de 33 cl. #1 du coffret. Couleur dore clair . Belle mousse bien tenace. Au nez arme de houblon plutt simple . En bouche nous avons un got damertume mais pas immdiat . Il arrive progressivement pour que ce sois moelleux en bouche ( cest mon avis ) Trs bien et peu plaire ce qui ne sont pas habitu de tels gots.

harrisoni (17573) - 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 (514) - 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 (19502) - 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 (1560) - 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...

JPDIPSO (5865) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Poured into my Duvel glass. Hazed dark golden color with a tall, off-white (hints of yellow) head. Spice and tropical fruit of Amarillo really come out in the aroma. Hints of bananas, alcohol, and pale malt in the background. Light sweetness from the malt, but quite masked by the bitterness. Wood/pine bitterness overtakes everything from the middle to the finish. The linger is really only left to the hop oils and some spice from the alcohol and the hops. 6/10
