COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first two batches of Duvel Tripel Hop were brewed with Saaz-Saaz, Styrian Golding and Amarillo. From now on Duvel Tripel Hop will have a different hop every year that will be added in the brewing process as well as being used for dry hopping. For 2012 this hop is Citra.

Editors note: clearly distinguishable, in a circle on the label it reads "Dry Hopped with Citra 2012 Selection"

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. I prefer the normal one. This feel lighter and more refreshing,but resinous nature of citra hops isnt much noticeable. Very foamy, had to pour it in 2 steps. Very transparent

Bottle @ home from Tripel Hops Tasting Box from Cash Flandre Artois, Auchy-les-Mines. Color: clear golden blond beer with medium carbonation and high white foam. Smell: grassy and floral hoppy nose. Citrus and lime notes. Very nice. Taste: medium body with good malt backbone, well balanced with fruity and floral hops. Lime and citrus hint. Very nice, quiet drinkable. Aftertaste: alcohol, sweet bitterness, lime. Good.

corkyrory66 (1518) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2016
Version 2012 au citra de la triple hop annuelle maintenant. Abv de 9,5 %, classique. Mon exemplaire tait 10 mois avant date. Couleur jaune tendre brillant, la clart nette. Bulles en fontaine centrale, virevoltantes. Mousse blanche, gros flocons, stable 10 mm. Armes de citron, citronnelle, pointe de girofle, cpres. 1re bouche soyeuse lentame la grimace (!!), cpres et girofle, avec de lcorce de merisier. Arrire-bouche sans liaison, vague. 2me un peu mieux, mais on est loin de llgance!! Arrire-bouche sans ligne directrice, longue (mais quoi cela sert-il?). 3me qui est plutt une soupe damertume quune amertume. Arrire-bouche trs peu construite. Longueur qui ne prsente vraiment pas de nuances nobles, mais du piquant et mme un peu dacide avec lamer. Jambes collantes. Levure faible. Alcool qui ne participe en rien au breuvage, il est sur lautoroute Bruxelles Anvers . Finale banale. CONCLUSION: vraiment pas une rfrence en terme de blonde houblonne, et quand je pense que cest elle qui a reu les suffrages pour tre rlue triple hop en production constante!!!!!! croit rver .. Mais au moins, je ferai des conomies ..

Bottle 0.33l at home Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thanks to Zlotta for finding this in Mitra. 24.09.2016. Taste as Number Two with Vlada Ciaoooo and Jelena. Pour it hazy yellow color with medium white head. Aroma sweetish, citra hops totally present, little bit eggy note I think from Citra. Taste smooth sweet quickly dissappear little bit odd at the end, missing carbonation after few sips, I thought is gonna be better than previous one but now hmm...., medium body, average carbonation, abrupt.

Duvel Moortgat by Duvel Tripel Hop #2 - 2012 Rami Rami is drinking a Duvel Tripel Hop #2 - 2012 by Duvel Moortgat at Powiśle Porownanie citry i amarillo. Sa inne. Citra istrzejsza, bardziej cytrusowa, amarillo daje "slodszy" aromat. Bez sikow kocich. Oba bdb.

i maly dopisek, ze roznice sa ewidentne, niemniej wcale nie sa duze, obstawiam, ze jakby miec tydzien przerwy miedzy jednym a drugim to przy zgadywaniu ktore jest ktore byloby... powiedzmy 55% trafnosci ;) oba sa bdb, oba maja fajna podbudowe slodowa, te wrzystkie brzoskwinie, w obu alko jest fajowo ukryte, no jak to w duveleach... a, i naumialem sie mowic ostatnio jak belgowie - duwle :) dzieki, Przemek :)

martjoobolut (3384) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 9, 2016
Bottle as "Duvel Tripel Hop 2" (from Saveur Biere). Pours yellow with huge whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is fruity, spicy, citrus, floral. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruity, citrus, orange, grapefruit, spices. Finish is citric bitter with touch of alcohol. Cover alcohol better than some others from the series. Overall: great, at the moment my favorite from the tripel hop series (havent tried Sorachi Ace yet) and this is actually.better than original version.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 Kolor z?oty z lekk? mgie?k?, piana biela, zbudowana z drobnych i ?rednich p?cherzykw, jest wysoka i trwala. Na sciankach pozostawia mnstwo zdobie?Aromat owocowy, tropiki i cytrusy, cytrusy i tropiki, mega. W tle bardzo delikatna nuta ?ywicy.Smak jest ob??dny, mocno owocowy, s? s?odkie tropiki i lekko kwaskowe cytrusy, jest nuta ?ywicy i ta charakterystyczna dla Duvel?a przyprawowo?? i pieprzowa ostro??.Goryczka sucha, grapefruitowa, z pieprzowym, pikantnym "tlem". Wysycenie wysokie, idealnie si? sprawdza. Alkohol mimo wysokiego "voltarzu" jest nie odczuwalny, zosta? idealnie ukryty.

Lore (2290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2016
typical Duvel appearance of hazy, very pale yellow colour and huge, though not too dense and stable head; aroma of bread, floral-honey notes, grapefruit, orange zest oils, maybe pineapple, hints of sauerkraut and piney notes; taste is basically the same; brilliant beer from Duvel again!

kapusil (1242) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 20, 2016
0.33l bottle. Clear pale golden body, thick white head. Aroma of sweet bread, honeydew melon, grapefruit, blackberry and floral hops. Taste of bread, grapefruit, orange zest, pine, honey and floral hops. Very nice beer. Given that Citra was used in lots of beer in the recent years, I thought it wont amaze me that much, but I was wrong. It really fits this beer.
