Clear golden, frothy white head. Fresh, peachy aroma. Flavour starts off fruity, then quickly turns more bitter. Bittersweetcitrus, quite clean, lightly spicy. Creamy, fluffy mouthfeel.

MiP (15454) - Snderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, 9.5%. Mild grapefruit aroma, dusty, peachy. Clear golden colour. Very big stable creamy and fluffy white head. The flavour is citric and dusty. Has a little cat urine, but not bad. Good malt base, slightly grainy. And a good alcohol level to balance.

Sięgnąłem po to piwo z ciekawości. Nie jestem wielkim fanem tego stylu. Belgijskie klimaty zdecydowanie bardziej podchodzą mi, gdy mają niższą zawartość alkoholu. Ale.. Każde piwo ma u mnie szansę ;) Jasny, jaskrawy kolor z niewielką pianą - tak wyglądało w szkle. Zapach kojarzył mi się z trawą i cytryną. Chwilę odczekałem, żeby piwo się ogrzało i przyszedł czas na pierwszego łyka. Cytrusy rozszalały się na całego, mocno odczuć dała się goryczka. Duvel Tripel Hop ma też dość wysokie wysycenie! Oglnie bardzo ciekawy smak i przyjemne w piciu, jednak alkohol zdecydowanie za bardzo dawał się odczuć. Na szczęście była to butelka 330ml, gdyż większa zarwno z uwagi na zawartość alkoholu jaki i stosunkową "ciężkość" byłaby trudna do wypicia.

Poured into a teku glass from bottle showing a dark straw and practically opaque yellow with a very generous white foam head. The nose shows a lot of sweet malts, lemon zest along with small hints of brett. The palate is full bodied and very malty. The hops also give a sort of bright bitterness that appears on the end but well supported by a malt back-bone and sweetness. The finish also shows a quickly dissipating spiciness.

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
While I like very much the 2014 edition of that beer, I have to say I was quite disappointed by this one... So either the Sorachi Ace is not my favourite hop, or maybe the bottle is too old... Nose and taste are quite week, a strange raisin, almost champagne or white wine after taste, hops are weak... Drinkable but nothing more...

Janek_Poducha (60) - Lubin, POLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Deep yellow color, big white fast falling head, transparent, very nice lacing on the glass. Aroma very hoppy (grassy, crisp, citrus, spice, a bit yeasty, some caramel notes). Palate: high carbonation, full body, a bit oily, bitter hoppy finish, Taste: Spicy, nice intensive hops, medium bitterness at the end, notes of alcohol.

geophagus (664) - Lubin, POLAND - JAN 3, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 (Bottle 0.33 l / half of a bottle) Pure, pale gold colour, transparent. White, thick, medium sized head, medium fast falling to stable, thick foam. Medium body, moderate carbonation, a bit oily texture. Aroma is sweet with medium to strong aroma of spicy and grassy hops and medium notes of tropical fruits. Light aroma of pale malt. Moderate aroma of alcohol but not unpleasant. Taste: Medium hoppy, moderate alcohol, pleasant malty, not too strong sweetness, pale malts. Medium strong, very pleasant bitterness, long lasting. Finish is bitter, hoppy but unfortunatly a bit alcoholic. Interesting beer with hoppy character but definitly this bootle was too old, hoppy aromas are muffled.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2015 Wonderful beer. Golden in colour with a slightly orange accent. The head is white and very dense. An initial maly taste turns into an overwhelming citrus and herbal taste due to the addition of the sorachi hops. Even better than a traditional Duvel!
