Hazy golden orange with a nice creamy white head. Spicy aroma with some clove and vanilla notes. Flavor is yeasty phenolics, not very defined but with an interesting gentle bubble gum aftertaste. Medium palate, easy to drink but a little burning. I prefer my tripels cleaner.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a decent white head. Nose is light and a little boozy with the usual notes of coriander and citrus. Flavor is a good balance of hops and a semi sweet and sticky malt with a touch of fruit and spice. Alcohol is present but not too strong. Decent but not exceptional.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 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.

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.
