Looks to me just like the classic Duvel, which is a good thing. About the only difference is slightly less head.

Smells nice, a lot of floral and pine scents in there. I can also detect a bit of mint behind it all, and a bit of pepper as well.

Wow, this is really nice. Quite a bit going on with this one. There is fruit and pepper for starters. Getting some floral notes from the hops, and finishes with a bit of an alcohol burn. Really nice blend of flavors.

Nice feel to this, not thick, but still makes it's presence known.

I was worried the hop flavor may be too much for me, but this is a well balanced beer. Very complex flavor, and everything works. I love classic Duvel, and see this one as a nice companion to it. Expensive, but worth trying at least once.

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!

A: Pours a pale straw color with multiple fingers of fluffy white head. It looks like you could balance a coin on it. Tons of sticky lacing.

S: Definitely doesn't smell like normal Duvel. Fairly clean smelling actually, with distinct aromas of spicy noble hops. Grassy. More like a pilsner than a Belgian brew.

T: Pretty clean like a pilsner - surprisingly little fruitiness. As with the nose, spice, pepper, and grass mid-palate with moderate bitterness in the finish. Strong notes of lemon and lemon grass in the finish provide a sour twang, adding another layer of complexity.

M: Medium bodied with strong carbonation and a peppery bite in the finish. Some alcohol is apparent, but, as with normal Duvel, this is surprisingly drinkable for 9.5% abv.

O: I see very little of the normal Duvel in this beer, but that doesn't mean it is not fantastic. A beer approaching double digit abv that drinks more like a lawnmower pilsner. Make this again!

a: clear yellow orange body with an enormous thick white head. the head never really recedes you're just stuck drinkin thru it. when the beer was gone there was still an inch of thick uneven rocky foam in the glass.

s: sweet and citrus are right upfront. a little medicine and hops in there as well.

t: tastes like a saison more than an ipa. bready malts, sweet citrus and hops with a peppery finish.

m: full body with great carbonation and a short dry spicy finish.

o: really enjoyed this beer. the only complaint is the medicinal presence.

Poured from a cork/caged/wrapped 750ml with a brewed on date of May 18, 2010, into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Body is a pale amber color with a thick rocky white head. Carbonation bubbles are rushing from the bottom to the head. Very appealing looking beer.

S: Sort of chemically smelling with alcohol faint on the nose. Hints of fruit, citrus and sour apples.

T: Maltier than normal Duvel giving it a bready flavor up front alcohol hits the middle of the taste into a faint bitter hops flavor and some slight fruits.

M: Creamy with light fizzy carbonation.

O: Too unbalanced for my liking, the bottle suggests drinking before 2013 so I'm not sure how much better or worse this will get, but I won't be buying it again. I think this is a step-down from Duvel, it's maltier with a fuller flavor, but I don't like the flavor I'm tasting as much.

Slightly chill hazed golden colored beer with a good sized white colored head.

Smell is hoppy with a strong spearmint scent. Strong floral scent. Besides the spearmint there is peach, grass, orange, rose and black pepper in this. Triple checked my glass this is one strong mint aroma for this beer style.

Starts out dry with a strong peaches and flowers flavor. Taste of grass and strong flowers, reminds me more than a little of Hennepin. Bitterness is mild; mostly this is extremely floral in flavor.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a Damn tasty beer! This wasn't cheap at $19 for the bottle but the money didn't go to waste. Very tasty Belgian IPA for those who want a less Wild West hopping in their beer.

A - A nice clean crisp yellow with 2 fingers of of head. At first pour the head seemed a bit fizzy, with large bubbles that looked like they would disappear quickly. However, it morphed into a thick fluffy head that sticks around. quite beautiful.

S - nice floral hop aroma with a hint of belgian yeast.

T - this beer opens and finishes with bitter hops. thats not too say it overly bitter, just a good flavor. Also has the classic belgian yeast flavor.

M - clean and crisp.

O - a great beer.
