4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Medium beige head. Wonderful complex aroma: lots of spice, lemon, grass, brett funkiness, caramel, malt, candied orange zest, hints of wood. Taste: medium sweetness with somewhat lighter bitterness and a hint of sour upfront, rather sweet middle, crispy bitter finish with light round sweetness. Palate: medium/full body, slightly oily texture, medium carb, nice alco warmth on finish.
Overall: absolutely beautifull aroma but a tad too sweet and too much alcoholic aftertaste.

Nothing really ramarkable. Nice colour, reasonable mouthfeel. Typical triple with a little too much alcoholic aftertaste. Overrated.

Slightly hazy orange ochre, thin light brownish / beige head. Aroma is fresh, belgian yeast, vinous notes, ripe fruits, mild spises and herbes, bit flowey notes also..quite nuanced. Light body, lively carbonation, sweet, long finish is fruity/floral. Tasty, fresh, nuanced, well-done.

Wonderfull beer, I love it.
Traditional top-fermentation beer that referments in the bottle. Brewed by the unique family brewery De Halve Maan, which has been located in the historical heart of Bruges since 1856. Straffe Hendrik is an authentic Belgian Triple beer, still brewed according to the original recipe. To serve cool.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 26C). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: predominant spicy aroma with clove-like and banana notes and slight solventy aroma. slight sweet malt background. belgian lace formation. APPEARANCE: deep gold color and translucent. persistant medium-high moussy white head. TASTE: medium-low peppery phenol flavor with a very faint orange note. slight sweet neutral malt background. medium-high bitterness with a dry and bitter finish. PALATE: medium body with a slight velvety texture, high carbonation with a soft alcohol warming sensation. OVERALL: a good and traditional belgian tripel that would benefit form more yeast produced esters.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 bottle. A hazy, dark amber color with a huge, off-white head. Aroma is floral, yeasty, and fruity - good but not exactly strong. A lightly sweet, somewhat sour taste of fruits and yeasts. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a lively to fizzy carbonation. Finish is medium long, somewhat off - too sour/bitter. Overall not a bad beer but I definitely expected something better given its renown.

Pours caramel brown. The head is small and white. Nose is a little fruity but also has strong alcohol notes. Fizzy palate. Good and strong. A little warming.

Gehad van vat. Smaak is zoet met een heel zacht bittertje en enigszins alcoholisch. In mijn herinnering is hij op fles wat pittiger en daardoor beter. Goede doordrinker, mss ietsjes limonaderig.

This isn’t the best Tripel I’ve had but certainly one of the better ones. The aroma is kind of weak and consists of honey, light hops and some fruit. Pours a beautiful amber amber color with a tight white head. Flavors of honey, pear, apricot, caramel and maybe some spices. Highly carbonated with a dry finish.
