The Belgian family-owned Duvel Moortgat Brewery has been brewing classic beers since 1871. Nevertheless, the appreciation for current “hoppy” beer trends has led to the creation of the Duvel Tripel Hop series of beers. Each year showcases a different hop and the 2016 version features the fruity, tropical Equinox hop.

The Duvel Tripel Hop 2016 is characterised by big aromas of tangerine, lychee, herbs and apricots. The flavour is similar with a bit more herbs and grass that are followed up by a sweet maltiness. A moderately dry finish and high levels of carbonation lead to an interesting lingering aftertaste. It’s not your normal Duvel, but it’s definitely worth trying this year’s unique variation!

  1. Great variation on the standard Duvel
    Review by Ryans

    More of an acquired taste than the standard Duvel with the hoppiness adding an extra dimension. Still easy to drink for a strong beer and a pleasing after taste. (Posted on 31/03/2017)

  2. Hop hit!
    Review by Jae

    There's no mistaking the hop hit from this Duvel mash-up and it's an interesting idea. Personally, I think it' s a bit hit and miss (though obviously completely subjective). Drinking a glass I couldn't decide whether the addition of hops was a good or bad thing for what is already a very good beer. But that's the great thing about Belgian beers - they have such complexity that one bottle is never enough. (Posted on 06/03/2017)

  3. "DUVEL!"
    Review by Thomas

    I'm afraid this review of a firm favourite has been influenced by many nights at University drinking Duvel and having a personal love of strong hoppy beers, i've been very pleased with the Triple hop, and pleased to have the other 5 beers which made up the experimental stage to decide on the right beer.
    Drink as much as this as you can, for the mainstream-ness of it, it is still the best Triple Hop belgian beer you will ever drink. Find a Duvel glass, a group of friends, cry "Duvel" and enjoy. (Posted on 08/02/2017)

  4. An interesting beer.
    Review by Ale x

    Interesting after years of drinking the standard Duvel. The extra hoppiness is unmistakable and gives the beer a rich flavour that lingers on the tastebuds. Definitely one to savour at the end of a day. (Posted on 13/01/2017)

  5. Wonderful
    Review by Tucker

    What can I say but wonderful . Great taste as you would expect slowly creeps up on your taste buds creating a burst of flavours overcome by the floral lavender undertones . (Posted on 07/01/2017)

  6. Floral delight, with a punch
    Review by Matt

    Easily drinkable, with a hoppy taste that is expected of Belgian beers, with a lovely light floral taste, lightly of lavander. (Posted on 30/12/2016)

  7. Deceptively strong
    Review by liverpoolJ

    This triple hop beer is a step up from your average beer. A refreshing, floral taste combined with a subtle sourness, Duvel triple hop ticks all the boxes. (Posted on 14/07/2016)

  8. Perfect summer beer.
    Review by JLEFC

    Perfect for a summer day. Duvel Triple Hop is a sharp, refreshing beer with a distinct hoppy flavour. Fizzy, fruity and very enjoyable. (Posted on 14/07/2016)

  9. An outstanding Brew
    Review by BTG

    As ever the Triple hop ticks all the boxes, 2015 brew as good as 2014, particularly nice fish and seafood, or just savory nibbles. (Posted on 08/03/2016)

  10. Duvel with the dial at 11
    Review by Llamaman

    We all know and love Duvel so I gave this a try after a bottle of the standard beer to do a direct comparison.
    For me, this is actually the better beer. It's a lot more hop-forward than a usual Belgian pale, giving it much more of a floral character than 'normal' Duvel. There was a slight sourness to it as well, which I love. (Posted on 06/02/2016)

  12. Would be great with a BBQ
    Review by Richard

    A very refreshing, full flavoured beer that is deceptively strong.

    Well recommended to accompany a BBQ on a summer\'s evening. After ordering this in December, I\'ll certainly be enjoying it again in around 5-6 months time.. or maybe much sooner :) (Posted on 20/12/2015)

  13. Very nice
    Review by PB

    More fruity than the normal duvel. Very refreshing (Posted on 13/10/2015)

  14. Punchy Belgian
    Review by Ay Pee Horne

    Bright, clean, refreshing, fresh, immensely hoppy ale. A masterpiece, plain and simple. (Posted on 12/09/2015)

  15. amazing
    Review by Ben Cops

    This is probably my favourite beer in the world - normal Duvel is a masterpiece, this is one better (Posted on 15/06/2015)

  16. A special brew !
    Review by Andy Scars

    I love this beer, deceptively strong, full flavoured and refreshing. I has a kick to it and works wonders at the end of a long hard week at work... (Posted on 16/05/2015)

  17. This is not your father's Duvel ...
    Review by interzen

    An interesting spin on the 'usual' Duvel - hopped with Saaz and Golding and then dry-hopped with Mosaic, if you're expecting something along the lines of an IPA then you might be a bit disappointed.

    More of a floral, herbal twang than you'd expect, the hops are surprisingly well hidden behind a tart sweetness and a subtle alcohol burn - the vigorous fizz adds just a hint of bitterness.

    It's Duvel, Jim, but not as we know it - has quite a 'bright', clean taste with a nice lingering aftertaste. A good beer to kick back with if you've had one of 'those' days. (Posted on 28/02/2015)

  18. Great Beer
    Review by MrsH

    This really is a great little beer for everyone to try. Nice clean taste. (Posted on 19/02/2015)

  19. Beastly
    Review by Stuart O

    Really nice alternative to a Duvel beer. Lots of fizz but also lots of taste. Recommended. (Posted on 13/02/2015)

  20. A refreshing alternative
    Review by AyBee

    This beer is a clear departure from the original Duvel we know and love but has not been over-cooked with hops as can sometimes be the case. Bright, refreshing and clean-tasting. It's lovely. (Posted on 06/01/2015)
