Old bottle bought a while ago in the Bierloods, Adegem. Hazy blond colour, white foam. Aroma of caramel and hints of banana. Dry and notes of cardboard. Hmm, a bit too old to be good.

The original Straffe Hendrik, taken over by Riva but discontinued when Riva went bankrupt. The Brugse Straffe Hendrik Tripel which later replaced it when the Halve Maan was reopened, is a very different beer: this original was a blond session ale with malty and light fruity profile with hints of apple, a somewhat metallic undertone and herbal hops in the finish. It was quite okay as a thirst-quencher, but nothing of great interest compared to the present-day tripel beer carrying this proud name.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: a apicy belgian ale.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange, with frothy off white head. Good head retention and some lacing. Yeasty, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some oily texture. Taste is fruity, some spicy and citrusy, yeast profiled. Alcohol noticeable. Enjoyable.

I first had this on drought in Brugges then found a bottle in NJ. The drought was definitely better but the bottle had a ton of floaters; poured ( into a trappist glass) a light golden orange color with a lot of chunky floaters and a thick white foamy head. Aroma was of alcohol and some yeast. Somewhat bitter with some orange or lemon in the back. Not bad, but I’ve had a few much better Belgian Ales. Need to try the Brune and their Quad.

Bottle looks simple but okay. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts moldy-malty, more and more sourish. Soapy-dry background. Unbalanced finish, not very drinkable. Didnt like this.

30 apr 2013, tap. Brown with foamy head that lasts a long time. Nose is big alcohol, wet, fermenting bread. Med body and moderately fizzy. Rich, brandy and raisins, big alcohol, fruit cake. Wow!
