Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat Special Edition Tripel Hop

I have had my eye on trying Brouerij Duvel Moortgat Special Edition Tripel Hop, 9.5% ABV, which I pick up from my local Total Wine very recently. This import comes from Puurs Belgium and is brewed with Experimental Hop HBC 291, instead of Citra hops or other more commonly used hops, and pours a deep yellow/golden color with a big pillowy three finger white head that slowly recedes into a white foam giving off light sweet lemon pepper aroma with hints of a very faint hop note that all culminates in your nose as a flavor of lavender lemon notes hit your taste buds on the front of the mouth, then a mild sweetness washes over the middle mouth and flows over into the black with a spiced pepper notes with a nice peppery finish with hints of a floral lavender bitterness that carries over to the aftertaste with the sweet notes have a more faded taste all with a semi-light mouthfeel. Brouerij Duvel Moortgat Special Edition Tripel Hop was really surprising and not at all what I was expecting, but it was very delicious and surprisingly refreshing but a little of the strong side but not heavily, and I give this Brouerij Duvel Moortgat Special Edition Tripel Hop an A-. I don’t think that you could have more than a pint of this beer, the flavor would start to become too much a quarter of the way into the second pint, but I do highly recommend Brouerij Duvel Moortgat Special Edition Tripel Hop, it’s good! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
