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 didnt find it worth trying again.

josanguapo (1223) - 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.

0.33 bottle. Pours in golden yellow colour with medium size white head. Aroma of basement, old cheese, some flower notes. Medium sweetness, low bitterness. Medium body, thick feel, quite strong alcohol aftertaste with sweet honey notes.

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.

PlutonowyMan (555) - POLAND - SEP 18, 2016
Kolor z?oty z delikatnymi pomaranczowymi przeblyskami, nieznacznie m?tny. Piana bia?a, wysoka, bardzo trwa?a, pozostawia mnstwo w?sw. Aromat bardzo bogaty i intensywny, cytrusy, dalej troch? topikw i borwka. Borwka to chyba najwi?ksze zaskoczenie, bardzo wyra?na. Smak: pieprz, lekka przyprawowo?? i sporo owocw. Ponownie sporo cytrusw, jest grapefruit cytryna, limonka, jest borwka i lekka nuta tropikw. Jest s?odko z lekko kwaskow? kontr?. Grapefruitowa, sucha goryczka. Wysycenie wysokie, pasuje, alkohol idealnie schowany.

The_Osprey (6833) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
The 666th rating of this beer. Win. Bottle share at Craft Beer Co Islington as Duvel Tripel Hop #4: Mosaic, 9.5%. Many thanks to Bryan. Clear yellow, sparkling, foamy white head leaves thick lacing. Aroma is rubbery, citrussy, melon, lemongrass, dried hop flowers. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is much smoother than the others in the series. Floral, citrus hops, biscuity malts, soft alcohol. The best in the series by quite a way for me has the best balance at least. I would revisit this one, but not so the others.
