Swank (46) - - MAY 18, 2014
Nice take on a classic beer. The extra hop gives it a nice twitch but also makes it quite high on alcohol. Good beer to try if you like Duvel, but personally I didn’t find it worth trying again.

Bacchus66 (937) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 27, 2017
330ml bottle at home. Pours hazy gold with a huge frothy white head. Yeast, bread, floral and grassy hops, banana, lemon. Medium carbonation. Long bitter, peppery, yeasty finish. Doesn’t seem like 9.5%

Nice fruity, tropic aromas. Good beer, but bitter for me. Golden colour, nice head. Champagne notes.

beer-yum (1885) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 26, 2017
Tropical and citrus fruit aroma in a light gold pour. Laid back hop-malt balance with a citrus fruit body and just a hint of bubblegum before a sweet tasty finish that leaves one wanting another.

3.5
sjogro (4733) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2017
Bottle out on the balcony at home while the blackbird sings his evening song. Big thanks to Maakun for the bottle. Hazy golden with white head. Sweet malts, dough, spring onion, grass, white pepper, some photo glue and aluminum foil. Moderate sweet and bitter, light spicy (alcohol and pepper aroma). Medium body, soft carbonation.

3.4
ManVsBeer (10946) - 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.

3.8
Svesse (8767) - Hässelby, 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.

vsyrbu (141) - MOLDOVA - FEB 10, 2017
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.

Rubin77 (2574) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 2, 2016
F: huge, white, long lasting. C: yellow to pale gold, light hazy. A: pineapple, blueberries, tangerines, fresh hops, floral, hint of grapefruit. T: malt, tangerine, blueberries, pears, tropical fruits, hint lemon, grapes, medium to full body, good carbonation, yes I like this beer, tasted as a Duvel Tripel Hop #4, 0,33l bottle from Delhaize supermarket in Oostende.

josanguapo (1918) - 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.
