The brewers are always searching for ways to innovate and this year, they have once again succeeded in creating an original flavour blend made with an exclusive hop variety: 'Cashmere'. The typical Duvel palate is enriched with notes of citrus, peach, melon and coconut. In short: a tropical storm in a bottle. While the classic Duvel is brewed with two types of hops (Saaz-Saaz and Styrian Golding), since 2007, the Duvel master brewers have begun adding a selected third hop variety, which always creates an original, fascinating taste profile. A unique Tripel Hop is born.
For the brand new Duvel Tripel Hop, the brewers selected a new generation of hops. This is one for the connoisseurs: 'Cashmere' is the product of crossing a female 'Cascade' hop plant with a male 'Northern Brewer' hop plant.
The result is a one-off brew with an alcohol content of 9.5% that offers fruity notes of citrus, peach, melon and tropical coconut. Beer sommeliers have been calling Cashmere a 'rising star' for some time now. In the world of hops, it's a highly sought-after newcomer. It will be eagerly anticipated by lovers of specialty beers, and especially, Belgian IPA beers. But the brew also retains the typical Duvel characteristics.
In 2019, the brewers at Duvel launched Duvel Tripel Hop with
the exclusive hop variety known as Cashmere, and it went down extremely well. The limited-edition beer flowed fast and furious, leaving behind a whole host of thirsty beer lovers. We could not resist the many spontaneous requests to get brewing again and, therefore, our brewers decided to repeat their use of the exclusive hop. So, as from now, Duvel Tripel Hop Cashmere will be permanently available.
