The_Mango_Kid (39) - - MAR 31, 2014
De duvel tripel hop van 2014 is een hoppig met een straffe bitterheid. Het aroma is uitgesproken bitter met maar een lichte citrustoets. In het aroma is vooral een aangename kruidige geur aanwezig die doet denken aan brandnetels of het groen van wilde kruiden. Het uiterlijk is troebel blond met een volle schuim kraag. De smaak is bitter maar aangenaam, ook al mis ik wat frisheid. Het gebrek aan frisheid wordt dan wel weer goed gemaakt door een aangenaam sprankelend mond gevoel. Een verrassend hop bier dat zelf ik kan appreciren hoewel ik geen voorkeur geef aan bieren met een uitgesproken hop smaak.

ManVsBeer (9761) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Golden, and very strong, which negates some of the mosaic hops to an extent, but the Belgian styling and Duvel character is maintained here with a good smoothness to the beer.

Svesse (8360) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2017
(Bottle) Golden colour with big, frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with pineapple, honey, citrus, passion-fruit, a touch of marzipan, some yeast and fresh floral hops. Fruity, hoppy taste with pineapple, honey, tropical fruit, grapefruit, hints of pine needles, mango, white bread and a generous citric, floral bitterness. Medium body, fairly dry. Fresh and tasty with a generous Mosaic character, still firmly Belgian. Very nice.

In addition to bitterness in flavor and taste are present different exotic fruits - citrus and mango. The aftertaste is sweet and bitter and very pleasant.

josanguapo (1511) - SPAIN - NOV 9, 2016
From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. Playing Magic 2015. Very citrusy, with some herbal notes and even slightly acidic. Nice but I prefer the normal duvel over this one. At least this is one of the Duvel Tripel Hips were the additional hop is easily noticeable. Generates a bit too much foam, requiring 2 pours.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle:   Hazy straw, dirty dishwater white head, spotty lacing.   A little musty hoppiness, a bit of citrus peel and floral hoppiness.   Similar on the tongue.   Bitterness is minor, carbonation is lively.   Hides the 9+ ABV very well.   Comes across as a slightly hoppy musty IPA.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a hoppy bang, but not so much in bitterness.   Has that Belgian mustiness to it that you cant get anywhere else.   A bit mixed as it has the flavor profile of an IPA but not so much on the hoppiness.   A bit more musty like, as to be expected.   However, it sure is clean.   Entertaining at least.   Two worlds that sometimes dont mix well, but this one was done fairly reasonably.
