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.

hazy yellow with creamy white head in appearance, aroma of citrus and yeast, a bit aggressive on tongue, initial sour flavour changes into a bitter one, bitter finish. a fine beer.

sjogro (3763) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle shared by Maakun at my place. From tasting set. Thanks! Hazy golden with big soapy head. Sweet malts, marsipan, grapes, almond, essential mint oil, kiwi, bready, toast and butter. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body, average carbonation. Strange as hell, but an interesting trip. Nothing like a Duvel.

Maakun (5174) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle shared. Clear golden with big fluffy white head. Green apple, marzipan, kiwifruit, gooseberries, sweet grains, alcohol, grapes, dry almond, grassy, light lime, dank weeds. Medium sweet and under medium bitter. Medium bodied with quite some alcohol. By far the furthest removed of regular Duvel of every triple hop variant. Its still nice, and yes interesting too, but the hop is a bit overpowering here.

TET (2952) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2016
Bottle "Duvel 3". A golden beer, a head is big and white. Aroma has fruitness of perries and apples, citrusfruits and herbs, hint of meat. Taste has fruitness, herbs, perries and exotic notes of Sorachi. Medium bodied, strong carbonation. Strong notes of Sorachi, and thusthe opinions are stongly varied, for me this is nice beer.

theSlipperyPen (282) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2016
Rated a year ago and only entered now. Really fresh green hops on this. Not so much fruity but furry green leaves and intensely resinous. The precision of the sweet light malt and the hops come together with a lightning clap and its most impressive. Its a big beer but manages to stay refreshing and light and finishes with a perfumed soapy flourish. Most excellent drinking.

From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. Very foamy, requiring 2 pours. Although I usually enjoy Sorachi, in this case Ive found it a bit cloying, making the brew below the normal Duvel
