Ever since 2007, Duvel's brewers have been working creatively to give Duvel some extra punch and add a little more bitterness with a third, additional hop variety added each year. Their efforts have surprised us, year after year, and even earned us a number of much-valued medals in both national and international beer contests.
This pack allows you to taste the six Duvel Tripel Hop blends created to date in a limited release Duvel Tripel Hop six-pack.
In 2007, Amarillo was still relatively unknown but since then this hop variety has become one of the best-known and most requested hops in the craft beer world. This Duvel Tripel Hop has a pronounced fruity flavour with notes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, melon, apricot and peach.
Citra is our award-winning blend: the Duvel Tripel Hop of 2012 won a gold medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge and the consumer trophy at the Zythos Beer Festival. The Citra hops add crisp notes of grapefruit, lime, tropical fruit, melon and cassis to the typical Duvel range of flavours. A blend that proved to be very popular.
Meet Sorachi Ace, a hop variety of Japanese origin! These hops impart a fresh, exotic and slightly fruity note of lime, lemon and dill. You might even discern a slight hint of mint.
Mosaic is a one of a kind hop variety as a result of the unique combination of strong aromas and its bittering value. The fruity aroma of blueberries, citrus and other fruit (papaya and apple blossom) adds a complex yet fresh note to Duvel Tripel Hop beer. Perfect for a toast in the spring sun.
Until April 2014, this experimental hop variety went by the name of HBC 366. Its current name refers to the hops' physical characteristics: vibrant yellow as the plant bursts out of the soil and deep green as it matures. The aroma is fruity, with a combination of lemon, lime, papaya and apple. The light note of green pepper gives some extra punch.
This year, Duvel has chosen a radically different, bold and innovative approach: we selected a very experimental hop variety, which currently is only known as HBC291. These hops combine the fiery taste of black pepper with the milder aromas of roses and lavender and a light citrusy note. Anyone up for this challenge?
