UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 330 ml bottle pours hazy light amber. Small head reduces to nothing. Aroma is great. Taste is a bit sweeter than expected. It’s a tripel, it’s a fantastic tripel. Will never tire of the style.

lbianchi66 (104) - FRANCE - JUL 16, 2015
Robe orangée. Mousse abondante et solide. Carbonatation fine et abondante. Saveurs maltées, levure. On sent aussi des notes de noix, banane, raisins secs et le floral du houblon. La douceur cache bien l’alcool. Épaisse et très longue en bouche. Une excellente triple.

Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with white foam. Nose: bread, cereal, hops, nuts, Taste: banana, apricot, nuts, bread, umami, light sweet and bitter. Full body, lively carbonation. Definitely one of my favorites.

Prima triple, een van mijn favorieten. Mooie witte schuimkraag op een amberkleurig bier.

Achel (175) - GREECE - JUN 22, 2015
A pale amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and alcohol - showing that it is strong. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, alcohol, caramel, and sugar. Powerful body. T

leghorn99 (113) - Livorno, ITALY - JUN 19, 2015
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.

Grisza77 (102) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 18, 2015
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 (1234) - 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.
