josanguapo (1232) - SPAIN - NOV 6, 2016
From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. Playing Magic Duels vs Lorenzo. More citrusy, refreshing and bit more watery than the normal Duvel. Im not sure if I prefer it over the normal one, but this is very good too. Very foamy, had to pour it in 2 steps.

sir__v (2273) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle @ home from Tripel Hops Tasting Box from Cash Flandre Artois, Auchy-les-Mines. Color: clear golden blond beer with high carbonation and medium white foam. Typical as a Duvel. Smell: grassy and hay domination. Alcohol boozy finish. Taste: medium body with good sweet malt backbone balanced with grassy hops. Dry boozy finish. Astringent alcohol. So strong... Not so fruity. Aftertaste: astringent alcohol. Boozy.

Bottle split at CBC Clerko tasting, thanks to Brian, 07/07/16. Pale yellow with a decent off white cap. Nose is dank hop exhaust, citric kissed straw, pissy notes, lemon rind, hay. Taste comprises light pine bite, lemon rind, tangerine, straw, bread dough, yeast esters. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a hoppy rasp. Drinks well for the ABV.

corkyrory66 (1517) - BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2016
Duvel lamarillo en troisime houblon de couronnement. Abv de 9,5 %. Mon exemplaire tait 10 mois avant sa date. Couleur jaune dor brillant, la clart pure, cristalline. Bulles fines, en fontaine centrale et alentour, par centaines. Mousse blanche, flocons fins, stable 12 mm. Armes trs jolis de houblon fleuri, zeste de citron, malt clair. 1re bouche souple lentame correcte sur le houblon, mais pas trs lie. Arrire-bouche lamertume un rien piquante. 2me bouche quilibre, avec une pointe de tabac. Arrire-bouche la belle amertume, mais pas complexe. 3me avec tabac et tanins, mais pas de vraie harmonie. Arrire-bouche correcte, sans excs. Longueur o la finesse du houblon nest pas mise en valeur pleinement. Les fruits exotiques sont l, mais dbords. Jambes trs collantes. Levure assez pices, belle ligne. Alcool fort, il gne parfois la finesse de lamertume. Finale sans surprise. CONCLUSION: une blonde houblonne certes correcte, mais dcevante par rapport lattente sur lamarillo. De plus, lalcool pnalise ici la perception de lamertume...

Vignale (3421) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 21, 2016
Tripel Hop #1, flaska frn Saveur-bier. Gyllengul, disig, mycket hg och bestende skumluva, vackert. Doften r grs och rtig, citruszest och lite sta pplen, honung och fruktkola i bakgrunden. Lite alkohol slr igenom det lite sta fruktiga grundlet fr en rejl match av den beska, krydddiga och zestiga humlen med tydlig beska. Sammantaget torrt med alkoholburna beska smaker. Lite rtt och kantigt med vl stor beska men med det sagt nd helt okej.
