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.

josanguapo (1232) - SPAIN - NOV 8, 2016
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

Bottle split at CBC Clerko tasting, thanks to Brian, 07/07/16. Pale yellow with an off white head. Nose is light skunky hop, straw, lemon, grains, yeast esters. Taste comprises bitter orange, white pepper, grass, punchy Sorachi tones, spice, toasted grains, lemon rind. Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Ok Sorachi affair.

Bottle 0.33l at home Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Thanks to Zlotta for finding this in Mitra. 24.09.2016. Taste as Number Three with Vlada Ciaoooo and Jelena. Pour it hazy yellow color with medium white head. Aroma sweetish Belgian yeast, eucalyptus herbalish kind of rosemary. Taste sweetish, nice Duvel note, Sorachi Ace really present, fizzy carbonation, medium body, long finish with herbalish feel, not my favorite thing maybe. OK

Bottle (as Duvel Tripel Hop 3, from saveur biere). Pours yellow with huge whiteish head. The head stays. Aroma is Belgian yeast, fruits, citrus, lemongrass, spices. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, some malt, some alcohol. Finish is citric bitter. Overall: very good, but not among the best of tripel hops.

The_Osprey (6853) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as ’Duvel Tripel Hop #3: Sorachi Ace’, 9.5%. Many thanks to Bryan. Yellow with a slight haze, sparkling, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is pear, melon, some lemon. Body is quite foamy with soft carbonation. Taste, like most of the others in the series, is dry and spicy with plenty of drying booze showing up, some pear maybe differentiating it, but otherwise it’s a spicy booze bomb. (3.1)
