COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hops: Saaz, Styrian Golding and Sorachi Ace. "Dry Hopped with Sorachi Ace. 2013 Selection"

Van TRIPEL HOP wordt er elk jaar slechts een beperkt volume gebrouwen, en dit med telkens een andere derde hopsoort. Voor deze 2013-editie selecteerden onze meester-brouwers Sorachi Ace. Deze zeldzame Japanse hopsoort verrijkt het bier met een frisse, exotische en licht fruitige toets.

Seule une quantité limitée de TRIPEL HOP est brassée chaque année, et la troisième variété de houblon change à chaque fois. Pour cette édition 2013, nos brasseurs ont sélectionné le Sorachi Ace. Ce houblon japonais rare enrichit la bière d’une touche fraîche, exotique et fruitée.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2015
Bottled - Cloudy golden colour, large frothy white head, good retention, lacing. Citrussy hop nose with some lemon zest, lemongrass, freshly cut grass, dill, some bread, fruity esters. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry and pleasant hoppy finish. Well rounded hoppy belgian ale, very delicious.

Holmen2 (3850) - NORWAY - NOV 28, 2015
Backlog. Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 11.05.13. Hazy golden. Large bright white HEAD. Aroma of lime and lemonade soda. Taste is first of lemonade and citrus seeds, then like and grapefruit. Bitterness, lime and lemon bonbonbs linger on. Fizzy carbonation. Somewhat unbalanced.

3.5
ForlornHope (533) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
33 cl bottle at home: turned into a back-to-back tasting with the 2012. Pours the same as most Duvels, so no surprises. Again, an older sample, so perhaps the aroma has faded. However, this example has a much lighter and less sticky base, the hopping is more perfumed and I would say is lighter, leaner and more refreshing than the 2012. Not better, just different. A nice, enjoyable beer.

altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Nice golden body. Great nose of hops and spices. Taste of lots of hops, strong Sorachi notes. Crisp and enjoyable.

Ysok02 (1710) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Robe blonde reflets dorés. Mousse abondante. Nez marqué par les agrumes, le pamplemousse rose, le houblon, une note épicée. Bouche à l’attaque ronde, rétro épicée et houblonnée, finale fraîche et équilibrée. Belle bière équilibrée.

mrjez (649) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 2, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2015 L: a lovely cloudy gold with a giant pillowy foam head that sticks around a while and clings to the glass. S: a strong herbal scent, must be the dill from the Sorachi, some light citrus and some resinous pine. Like a rain-drenched herb garden. T: all the smells are on the palate, some stronger citrus. It’s nicely hopped, good level of bitterness. F: the first time I had it half a year back it had a very lively mouthfeel, strong bitterness, this time (around the drink-by date) it’s smoother, less carbonated less spiky, very easy to down. Slightly oily. O: interesting and delicious. The ABV is very well-hidden. I look forward to my last bottle and see if I pick out any new developments.

JefVerstraete (3516) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2015
Rating from 2013. Golden colour, white foam. Lots of carbonation. Bitter and yeasty with notes of grapefruit and pineapple. Balanced is ok. Good.

Drino (4) - - MAY 26, 2015 does not count
Aroma herbal, bem interessante. tem aparencia clara, parece espumante. Sabor amargo, percebe-se a concentração de lúpulo, de vegetal. Pede um acompanhamento salgado. Nota 8,0.
