bonkiedeaap (678) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle from Blind Tasting Set bought at Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is yellow/blond colored with a large white head and a lot of carbonation, very nicely done. There is an inviting aroma of grassy hops, suggesting grapefruit, lemon zest, light stone fruits and a little gentle spiciness. The taste is a delicious mouthful of juicy fruits and floral, grassy hops, supported by a solid malt base. There a flashes of pepper, that wake up your taste buds as the beer dries out really well, to leave a long, gentle bitter finish, which stays for a long time. Oke beer, but Citra and Amarillo were way better.

Bijl (361) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2016
De 3e uit de Tripel Hop Tasting Box met Sorachi Ace als 3e hopsoort. Goudgeel helder, volle witte groffe schuimkraag. De geur is fruitig, ietsje scherp en kruidig, citrus, ietsje mout, een hint van Belgische gist en iets aarde. De smaak begint zoet en fruitig, daarna rode peper die prikkelt op de tong, kruidig en een redelijke bitter. Op het einde blijft voornamelijk de zoet hange. Veel CO2, lichte body....iets waterig en droog in de afdronk. Ik vind deze lekker maar de vorige 2 waren beter.

Zlotta (2516) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 0.33 l bottle from Mitra (Beukenweg, Amsterdam) as part of the tasting box, best before August 2017. Clear, pale straw yellow with a greenish touch and a massive, fluffy, stable, white head. Fruity-grassy, floral and slightly herbal aroma of lychee, ginger, lime and grapefruit. Slightly bitter, fruity-grassy, quite floral and a bit herbal taste of lime, lychee, ginger, lemongrass, grapefruit and fresh grass, followed by medium long, quite bitter, dry, grassy, a little yeasty and somewhat alcoholic finish. Medium to full (!) body, effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Very good again, maybe the roundest version Ive had recently. Seems to have a fuller body somehow as well. Overall the best version in my opinion.

MelvinKalksma (1233) - NETHERLANDS - APR 15, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2016
Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, flowers, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy yellow/golden beer with a medium/large white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, Belgian yeast and flowers; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The Duvel, with its tons of sweet Belgian yeast, and the Sorachi Ace, with its dry and citrus flavour, work so great together. Actually manages to be a perfect balance between these two, which is great if you imagine how strong the yeast is in a regular Duvel.
