Un’ottima triple dal colore giallo dorato, limpido; la schiuma, voluminosa e cremosa, permane a lungo, e lascia poi una bella quantità di merletti sul bicchiere. E’ un naso ricco ed elegante quello della Straffe, che riporta i sentori di un luppolo erbaceo e fruttato, e un sottofondo leggermente piccante di lievito. Si fa gustare con estrema piacevolezza: ha corpo, seppur robusto, rotondo e correttamente watery, con una struttura solida ed equilibrata di malti e caramello, con la variante fruttata data dal giusto mix di luppoli. Mediamente frizzante, ha un finale lungo e luppolato, con i lati della lingua che rimandano lungamente al cervello sensazioni gustosamente amare.

Piwo o głęboko złotej barwie z obfitą pianą, która pięknie zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w formie sporej warstwy. Aromat owocowy, typowo belgijski, intensywny, bardzo przyjemny. W smaku także belgijska owocowość, słodycz, bardzo przyjemnie skontrowana stroną chmielową. Goryczka średnia, przyjemna, szlachetna, owocowa, w posmaku długo utrzymują się słodkie owoce z odrobiną kwaskowości. Ogólnie bardzo dobre belgijskie piwo, intensywny smak i aromat, jeden z moich faworytów w ostatnim czasie.

jamaty (1354) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Ambar claro - miel. Un dedo de espuma pasajera. Aroma frutal, cereal y floral, y algo a galleta, solo si no esta muy fría. En boca gran cuerpo y carbonatacion notable. Sabor extraordinario. Primero dulce galleta y muy frutal y lupulada (piña, naranja, flores) luego seca, muy seca y algo alcohólica (esos 9 tenían que aparecer por algún lado). Pena que se acabe.. aunque queda un postgusto memorable.

Couleur orange ambrée, légère mousse. Nez fruité, paille et note de levures belges. Gout de triple belge fruitée avec bonnes notes florales , levures et notes d’épices. Ronde et cremeuse en bouche. Fin bien longue amere et épicée. Pas mal
