This is the king of all beers, the taste is exceptional and the after flavor is citrusy and hoppy... the head is about three fingers and beautiful to look at !!! I think is worth every pennie out of the $22.00 dlls that I paid for it, enjoy it with dry fruit and nuts, of course a good strong chesse will finish it perfectly... (327 characters)

Appearance: A very yellow color, but paler than regular Duvel. Has the same voluminous white head that fills the Duvel Tulip above the Duvel logo

Smell: A very complex nose, whatever hoppiness that was there when fresh has evolved into something far more interesting and delicious

Taste: Again, very complex, more bitterness than the regular Duvel, which is the only thing that I know of as "hops" that I tasted, but it has much better and more interesting flavors than your standard hoppy brew. The hops have definitely made a mark on the flavor, and I'm impressed that Duvel has pulled off what they did. There is a good tartness to it, compared to regular Duvel, but not a whole lot if you compare it to a sour.

Mouthfeel: Light body, high carbonation

Overall: Very amazing with some age on it. I'm going to pick up another bottle if I can find another one under $10. (874 characters)

Duvel has been one of my top beers since I started drinking beer...I was so excited to see this brew and did not hesitate to drop $20 for this. 750 ml bottle poured into my large Duvel tulip glass...and I'm NOT sharing.

A- Body is a somewhat dense, dynamically hazy, translucent, pale golden yellow hue. Pours with the classic Duvel 3 finger+ foamy white head. Head eventually, and somewhat unevenly fades to 1/2 finger (altough there is a 2 finger foamy iceburg floating around)...and leaves a TON of lacing all the way down the glass. Bubbles can be seen steadily rising to the top.

S- Lots and lots of floral and noble hops everywhere-which are of moderate-to-strong strength and the highlight of the nose-yet they give off a very soft vibe-Hop profile is prominent-but very Euro. Behind this is a lot of pear, a hint of tart apple and moderate sweet, bready, belgian yeast backbone.

T- Taste is subtle at first and offers some dry fruity flavors with a subtle belgian yeast backbone. A spicy presence very quickly emerges over the dryness and becomes prominent. Then a hint of white grape emerges with a bready yeast. The hops really hit for the finish and make their presence known- mostly floral but with a noble softness and a slightly piny refreshing character (actually it pretty much has Saaz written all over it). The spicy, bready yeast makes its presence known-before another breif cry spell and a moderate lingering hop bitterness with a slight breadiness and spicyness lingering as well.
The flavor profile in this changes from start to finish. Its quite complex and as I drink more the picture becomes clearer.

M- Medium to high carbonation, and a light, yet full body that is, for the most part smooth and yeasty/bready (although it has dry spells too-not too common to find a complex mouthfeel).

D- I love this beer. The whole profile-from start to finish just confirms why this is my favorite style. Its complex, refreshing, drinkable, and delicious. This borders on Belgian IPA-but these are the types of BSPAs I go after....$20 hurts-a lot-but this brew sure is worth it. This beer has completely met, and exceeded my expectations. AND this is my FIRST 5.0 beer (review 777)-thats it-perfection.

I think I want to buy 1-2 more bottles of it to enjoy in the future. Actually-I'm really happy that I didn't have to trade for a beer I love this much. (2,379 characters)

A: Just like it's "baby" brother, this bigger Duvel is clear, bright golden hue, with a massive head that leaves a ton of lacing. Duvel's appearance is what all other beers strive to become. Phenomenal.

S: Aromas of malt and citrus hops, but with a emphasis on malts and that well known pear-like aroma that Duvel is known for.

T: I didn't think it was possible to improve on Duvel, but this is it. Stronger hops, more heavy malt presence that enhances the pear and fruit quality.

M: Slightly creamier and thicker than the original, but still outstanding.

D: Regardless of the 9.5 abv, this one is so easy to drink. One can forget how strong this is because of its drinkability, so this one can probably creep up. Still, this is one of the greatest beers I've had. (771 characters)

As close to perfection as it ever can get. I had the 2012 version with the Citra hops. My golden standard for beers. Yearly rotation of three hops, very high quality Duvel base with showcasing the dry hops. Also available in 330 ml bottles, generally for a limited time, early-mid summer each year. (298 characters)

750ml bottle, bottled 5/18/2010 and purchased from a store cooler, into a Duvel tulip. Shared with vonschplieffen.

A: Cloudy gold body with an inch of pillowy white head. Good retention, sticky lace. Not nearly as distinctively gorgeous as regular Duvel, but still quite nice.

S: Wow. This is over a year old, and the hops still dominate. It smells like a bushel of smashed pink grapefruits scattered about a sunny Belgian hayfield. It's fruity, grassy, herbal, deep, contemplative, and, in a word, divine.

T: Deliciousness. Bready pilsner malt; sharply grassy, herbal, and fruity hops; apple + pear esters; and a bone dry, moderately bitter, spicy finish. Again, wow.

M: Creamy, full, frothy, lively, substantial, awesome.

O: What a beer. I didn't think anything could improve on regular Duvel in this general category, but I was wrong. The malt, hops, and yeast in this beer work it utmost harmony, delivering nothing short of pure, absolute flavor heaven. If it weren't so expensive, I would buy every bottle in sight. As it is, I'll just buy out the rest of the stock from the store where I got this, since it's both cheaper than anywhere else I've seen and refrigerated, so the hops are fresher than I expected. So, so good.

Cheers! (1,243 characters)

I've finally secured a bottle of this from Craft Beer Cellar in Boston. For the appearance, it looks very similar to it's cousin, the original Duvel - brilliant yet hazy gold, with a head similar to sea foam. It's very sticky, leaving a web of lace on its way down. The aroma is remarkable- very rich and complex! I'm picking up a decent amount of Belgian yeast, caramel, and fruity esters - tart apple and banana. There is a presence of sharp, juicy hops. The aroma has something reminiscent of the original, once again. A bready malt foundation hits the palate along with an immediate surge of piney hops. There is a spicy aspect of cloves as well. This beer really coats the mouth completely, and hangs there. Relatively hot alcohol presence with a medium body. Very pleasant tingling mouthfeel and finish, consisting mostly of hop bitterness. If you want a nice, strong Belgian IPA this is simply the best! For fans of Belgian strong ales who are also hop-heads. (966 characters)

Cloudy golden appearance with a thin amount of bubbly head that slowly settles down leaving good lacing. Not to different from regular Duval. Smell consists of lots of hops, yeast, citrus, grass, orange and various spices.

Taste consists of lots of fruits (apples, orange, bananas, etc.), hops, yeast, spices, pepper and grass; Excellent blend of tastes, complex but refreshing and highly drinkable at the same time. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finish is a lingering spicy, boozy taste

This beer is amazing, the one I tried is from Mar. 2010, wish I waited another year because this beer ages well. This is an amazing beer, but something that you should drink for a special occasion, although if it was cheaper and more available, I'd have no qualms drinking it every day. (787 characters)

This is truly the perfection in a bottle. Champagne of beers, if you will. Light and airy, yet substantial and very flavorful. A paradox...

Poured golden straw color - lighter than I thought it would be. Very, very enticing sight with a creamy head. Smell of fresh hay, honey and lemon. Heavenly taste - very clean, very balanced, just...perfection. While other good beers allow you to dissect their aromas and distinguish different notes, this one goes all in one piece, enveloping the tongue with the full gamma of incredibly harmoniously intertwined tastes. This is one outstanding beer. (591 characters)

Purchased for $19.99 at Julio's, came with a free Duvel tulip. Can't beat that, as while the price is high when you factor in the glass it was more than worth it.

A - Holy cannoli this stuff is the be all end all as far as appearances. This continues to show why people use this as the bar for all others. A golden clear pour with an incredibly fluffy almost three finger head that as it fades leaves big clump lacing. The head never truely goes away, just slowly dimishes into a thick white blanket atop the golden brew.

S - I knock this half a point just because the 9.5% is so potent on the nose. Picking up some great grapey white wine type notes. along with the usual Duvel belgian yeast and brewing spices. Man oh man the pear aroma is so much more intense in this one.

T - Much like the nose this is a more intense and upfront Duvel. Some wonderful white wine flavours along with the great Duvel yeast flavors. The peppery flavors are a bit more intense with this version than the usual Duvel.

M - Much like Duvel, this has a great light crisp mouthfeel which is such a great play on a big ABV strong pale ale. Just exceptional. Really cant ask for anything more.

D - Just crazy. The kick in the pants is the fact that this is waaay over priced. While it is simply amazing, $20 is rather steep for a 750mL, or atleast more than I'd like to pay. That being said, if this was just a bit lower I would be all over it. Just superb. (1,439 characters)

Consumed during celebrations for New Years Eve, watching Inception on Blu-Ray.

A - A hazy straw yellow with a tinge of orange, with that signature, snow-white duvel head, at least an inch thick, dissolving into a thick lacing that looks like bits of meringue. Beautiful doesn't begin to describe how awesome it is.

S - citric, grassy hops and yeast rule the aroma. Two very pleasant notes on the nose.

T - Duvel Smoothness, with a citric hoppy bite, and very very yeasty. Like duvel amped up to eleven, in a good way.

M - Sufficient viscosity and fine champagne-esque bubbles. Oh so smooth going down; I love it.

D - This does not taste like 9.5% ABV. It's so smooth and tasty, i could blow through two of these with little effort...and then promptly pass out the moment i tried to stand up. This one will sneak up on you.

Overall - One of the most satisfying beers I've ever had. Hoppy, yeasty, very slightly malty...It really is like Duvel with the awesome meter cranked up as far as it'll go. And considering how good standard Duvel is, that's no easy task. I am in love with this beer. I'm going out and getting more tomorow. I must have more. (1,154 characters)

If you are Duvel, definer of Belgian Style, how are you going to respond to the proliferation of Belgian-style IPAs?

Create the world's finest IPA-style Belgian.

Appearance: It's Duvel. The color is that pitch perfect hue between straw and lemon that somehow makes you thirstier just looking at it. And the head? A thick, everlasting cake frosting of fine bubbles that never dissipates, celebrating the beer down to the final sip.

Aroma: A warm, hoppy, fruity nose that not just invites, it seduces.

Taste: Smoother than an American Belgian-style IPA, but with more bite than standard Duvel. The resulting aftertaste thus stays with you longer.

Mouthfeel: "Tiny bubbles..."

Overall: I imagine hip-hop artists holding this beer high, as emblematic of special occasions as Crystal. I, however, will want to enjoy it every day... (832 characters)

Bottle picked up at Capone's. Served in a wine glass.

A hard pour yields a golden-bodied brew with lots of visible carbonation. The head that forms is monstrous, filling a little over half the glass. Really, really impressive head retention, even for Duvel. The white head that forms is uber-thick, almost like meringue. Even as the sides start to fall, there's a thick melted-marshmallow bit of foam in the middle that stays up throughout the glass.

The nose is fantastic. The Styrian Goldings are present atop the typical Duvel characteristics. There is some very mild grain plus an explosion of beautiful fruit. I got a bit of tropical-fruit character plus a bit of ripe honeydew. Slight bit of yeast spice in there as well. Faint whiff of alcohol. The taste really hits all of these components over the fence. The tropical fruits coalesce into what I could best describe is not-quite-ripe mango plus a bit of mango skin. Fresh honeydew in there as well. Also a bit of citrus rind and white pepper toward the finish.

The mouthfeel was exquisite. I loved the fruit character plus a nice dry finish that is really accentuated by the hops. Incredible. Great medium body with high levels of carbonation. Just killer. This is what a "triple hops brewed" beer should taste like. Damn. I really like traditional Duvel, but this beer is on a whole different playing field. Well done, very well done. (1,397 characters)

Presentation: 750ml bottle, champagne corked of course, with some decorative foil covering the cork. A BBD of 18 May 2013 was printed on the label. I poured it into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden straw yellow color, lots of carbonation bubbles rising inside. The head formed a pillowy soft 2-3 fingers thick with great retention. I don't know how this could be any better.

Smell: Floral and citrus hops. Very nice.

Taste: Bready malts up front giving way almost immediately to the hops, floral and citrusy. I also got notes of lemon, pepper, grass, and pepper in there at varying times. The finish was a mix of malt, hops, yeast, and just a little alcohol warming.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied, smooth and creamy. The carbonation was lively, and the bubbles scrubbed the palate between sips. The alcohol was hidden well, I had to check the label to make sure it was really 9.5% ABV.

Overall: A simply phenomenal brew. It's a bit pricey, but in my opinion worth every penny. (1,013 characters)

Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a big white head. In the aroma, amarillo hops stand out, with a nice mix of yeast and candy sugar. In the taste, dry hops and fresh hops, a pinch of yeast and a small hint of fruit. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a semi dry fresh hop aftertaste. WOW, Duvel just got better!! (332 characters)

The appearance of the beer is a slightly hazy pale yellow. The head of this beer is very fizzy. The aroma smells of noble hops. Like spicy hops and a belgian yeast smell. The taste has more hops than the usual Duvel. The hops out compete the malt sweetness. The beer has a bit of a lingering belgian yeast flavor. The mouthfeel is light, and I would consider this very drinkable. Even at 9.5% I am not catching any bad harsh alcohol flavors. It is a very well balanced beer. (474 characters)

S-Grassy, spicy, lemon, and honey
T-sweet malt and lemon up front that leads into the grassy earthy flavor. Very well balanced. Very hoppy but flavorful and diverse.
M- Medium-full bodied
O-A great expansion on duvel. I love the original and this is a nice spin on it. It a very flavorful and complex beer but still maintains its drinkability. I would highly recommend this beer (512 characters)

Poured unto a Duvel signature tulip glass. Bottle dated May 18, 2011...served December 28, 2011.

Appearance: Semi cloudy gold, light bubbles through out the body. Solid thick white head comes off 2" at minimum off the body.

Smell: Potent...somewhat lemony, with a fragrance
of yeast.

Taste: Super-complex feeling of yeast, the driest hops but seriously the tastiest.

Mouth: This ale comes off as one of the bubbliest I have had, heavy carbonation which might compliment it's filling flavor.

Overall: Duvel Tripel Hop is at the top of the food chain when it comes to beer. Alcohol apparently present but not overly done. Don't take this beer for granted it is incredibly well put together. Hope you all enjoy and cheers to all! (734 characters)

750 mL bottle split with my friend. My half was poured into my Duvel tulip.

The beer pours a radiant, 100% clear gold color. As with regular Duvel, the head is a giant white frothy mass that leaves gobs of lacing all the way down the glass. Head retention seems to be a little bit off from the standard version, and just keeps it from a perfect appearance score. The aroma on Duvel Triple Hop is incredible. Sweet apples and pears hit me first, with some spicy yeast notes to follow. More spice comes from the Saaz hops, as well as a faint suggestion of citrus from the Amarillo. The hops step it up even more on my palate, as the pale malt sweetness and spicy yeast flavors seem to rush by to make room for the delicate spice and citrus coming from the Saaz and Amarillo hops. It's actually to the point where it's a (slight) detriment to the beer as the hops run roughshod over the remainder of the beer. The beer didn't last long enough in my glass to warm up, but cold it was super crisp and the carbonation was lively and effervescent. This slightly bigger beer doesn't show its 9.5% at all. Another great beer from the people at Brouweriz Duvel Moortgat, though I think I prefer the classic version slightly. (1,215 characters)

this beer is busy. poured from the bottle with about 3 inches of head. good steady carbonation. lacing down the glass with excellent retention. i was done with the goblet and there was one and a half inch of head left! hoppy but different. the three hops augment each other so it is confusing but good. nice bitter and dry aftertaste! pale yellow in color, sour apple, bread, and pungent smell...this beer rocks. expensive but who cares! i will have this maybe once a year so cost is not important.

750ml bottle, poured into a Duvel glass (of course!). On popping the cork out, a wonderful citrus-floral aroma wafted out. It pours a bright clear gold color, with an initial half-inch thick head of foam, though it settles down after a moment to an airy foamy covering atop the beer (not nearly a nice a pour as the normal Duvel--in fact, a chalice glass might be better for this particular beer). The nose is strikingly hoppy, giving a very tangerine-citrus aroma with spicy floral hints underneath.

The taste is very heady--whereas I thought I could be smelling a typical American IPA from the nose, the taste is clearly Belgian, with a well-balanced mix of bitter earthy hops, highly fruity esters, sweetness from the malt (as per duvel the original, the body is surprisingly light for the high strength), and some very interesting yeasty spiciness (does this contain a little Brett? I swear I can detect some around the edges). Not a hint of alcohol harshness to be detected, but it's certainly warming after a moment.

The brewers at Duvel certainly get the mouthfeel near-perfect as well, just like with ordinary Duvel. It's very well-carbonated, with a delightfully light body for a 9.5% strength.

Probably the best beer I've had this year. I hope this is to be a regular offering and not a one-time special. (1,319 characters)

2007 vintage:
Look: the beer pours a straw-yellow color with a nice white head
Smell: Strong floral hops in the nose, together with some spicy pepper, grass, yeast and sweet honey.
Taste: Nice hop bitterness, grass, citrus fruits and flowers. Fruity as well. Some nice honey balanced this beer perfectly. Dry and crisp aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, high carbonation, very silk
Overall: Fantastic beer, so much better than the 2010 version I had a few days ago! This beer is Art. (484 characters)

eyes...
frothy foam monster, 4 fingers of crystal white head, medium sizzle, very cloudy pale straw color, pretty sticky up the glass, the head really takes some time to calm down, a good amount of carbonation is running up through the glass, on point for the style (as you would expect from duvel)

nose...
nice doughy sweet bready aroma with hops on the back end, some banana notes, the hops feel like the more musty/dirty/earthy type which is a nice background for the sweeter honey notes to play off of, nice balance here considering the aroma is quite strong

taste etc...
medium feel carried by the carbonation which adds just a prickly wrinkle right before the bitters in the aftertaste, first blast is minor bittering that melds into banana flavors and bready tones that then melts away into mild bitterness in the corners of your mouth, this is very easy to drink and there is just a hint of warming in the stomach from the ABV, the hops really give this beer amazing depth and character

verdict?
fantastic, for someone who is put off by uber sugary tripels this really hits the mark, there is some sugar there but man the hops balance this out superbly, I expected this to be good as Duvel has been great forever but this far exceeded my expectations (1,261 characters)

Presentation: It was poured from a dark brown, corked bottle into a tulip glass. The bottle came with a little info booklet, which gives some background on the beer and the three hop varieties used in the beer. The label also has the hops listed as well as the abv (9.5%) and a best before date (11/04/13).

Appearance: The body has a clear golden color on the first two glasses and a pale hazy golden color on the following glasses as the yeast unsettles from the bottom of the bottle. It also has a lot of wonderful champagne like carbonation streaming up to the tall frothy head. This head is white in color and thick. This makes for an excellent long lasting head that clings to the glass and leaves thick sticky lacing behind as I drink.

Smell: in the nose I get the classic Duvel character with notes of fruity (pear/apple) and funky yeast blended with a bigger more complex hop character. There are nice delicate pilsner like floral hops mixed with spicy and herbaceous hop notes. A mild pine like note also comes and goes in the nose. Behind all of this is a noticeable but expected alcoholic presence.

Taste/Palate: Its flavor matches the aroma perfectly and finishes with a solid dry bitterness slowly fading off the tongue. The firm medium body is lifted by the fine and quite active carbonation which helps to cleanse the palate and keep things light.

Notes: I am a big fan of the regular Duvel and this adaptation takes it to a whole new level. I had high expectations and it did not disappoint. I am very happy that I was able to find this at my local beer store and enjoy it for myself. (1,605 characters)

Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip- pours a clear, golden yellow color with two plus fingers of fluffy white head, great retention, not too much lacing.

Smell is very hoppy- piney and distinctly American along with some Belgian yeast earthiness. Beautiful hop smell for a Belgian.

Taste is great- hops up front briefly, then some nice light malt and candi sugar sweetness, which gives way to the earthy yeast. Finishes dry and the hops linger for a while.

Mouthfeel is great- light body, well carbonated. This one is great if you can find it for the right price. Worth trying. Would get again if not for the cost. (621 characters)
