Golden clear bodied and nice bubbly white head. Sweet aroma, fresh fruits with apricots and fresh figs. Belgian yeast, but quite clean. Taste is heavy on sweetness and alcohol, with just enough classic hops. Strangely it works, but drinking a couple can kill you, I think... Solid brew but not for the faint hearted. (At Pothuis Utrecht)

Opálos, sötét sárga. Habja piszkos sárga. Illata nem hozza a várt masszív alkoholfelhőt, inkább gyümölcsös friss, élénk. Megízlelve masszív, sűrű testes. Nem túlzottan édes de nekem már-már sok , viszont jól kompenzál a sok komló így megmarad a balansz. Érezni a jó értelemben vett kisüzemi karaktert. oks

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2012
Pours golden with a fairly large head. Floral, malty aroma. Quite strong alcohol flavour - not so balanced. Decent, but not as good as the quad.

Bottle at De Stoepa, Brugge - 07/07/12. Golden amber in colour with a good white head. Sweet nose - yeast, spice, malt, straw. Sweet malt flavour, sugared/candied fruit, honey and a little booze. High end medium bodied with a fair snap of carbonation.

Buena cerveza triple, fuertecilla de sabor y con un punto de amargor bastante soportable.

jkwood04 (4774) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2012
11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours amber with lots of yeast and a thick, light beige head. Aroma of spicy yeast, caramel malts, and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. I hate when bottles have too much yeast visible in the beer.

SPDickerman (1057) - Texas, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Pours caramel orange with a medium sized light khaki head. Smells of light spices and mild fruits. Taste is sweet, spiced, and fruity. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and fair amounts of mouth-carbonation, Straffe Hendrik Tripel finishes with hints of fruitiness and is a little sweet.
