Fruity and bubble gum like aroma; almost a hint of apple cider. Taste is emblematic of a typical Belgian trippel. Finishes very smooth, deceptive for the alcohol percentage. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Straffe Hendrik Tripel es una cerveza triple dorada con una firme corona de espuma blanca. El aroma es especiado, con notas de pimienta negra, coriandro y gengibre, incluso se insinúan naranjas. Esta cerveza está intensamente lupulada con Saaz y Styrian Golding de superior calidad, contiene una sutil mezcla de seis maltas especiales obteniendo así un sabor espectacularmente balanceado y potente. El paladar se inicia con una nota de caramelo, tornando pronto hacia un leve amargor. En el final se descubre una sutil nota de banana, en combinación con la prominente presencia de cítricos. Esta triple con un contenido alcohólico del 9%, gracias a la fermentación en botella logra una larga durabilidad.

Ulysse (424) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2016
Yeast and corn aroma. Large bubbles in the white top. Tastes alcohol and a very faint aftertaste of something elusive. Not much bitterness nor aroma. Nice smooth feeling but that’s it. Would not have another one

Oranssinkeltainen, kupariin vivahtava sameahko olut, joka vaahtoa hyvin runsaasti. Vaahto höttöistä ja se jättää kivasti pitsiä. Hedelmäinen ja mausteinen tuoksu. Maku vahvan mausteinen, jopa pippurinen. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja runsaasti. Jälkimaussa pieni katkeron ja ennen kaikkea mausteinen puraisu. Lasin loppupuolella makeus nousee enemmän esiin. Mielenkiintoinen, hieman erilainen ja kuitenkin raikkaan nautittava tripel.

Bottle 33cl bought at Delhaize. Pours hazy deep golden color with a big white head leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Nose: sweet and malty, bit alcoholic, floral. Taste: medium carbonation. Sweet start combined with malty notes and some floral notes. Alcoholic warmth is also present. Not so much bitter and the malt lasts for a longer time.

Op zich een mooie Belgische Tripel. Krachtige smaak met een iets te bittere afdronk.

Cybion (130) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours amber/orange, little bit cloudy, with a two finger frothy white head and lots of visible carb. Quite a bit of lacing here. Aroma is bready malts and belgian yeast of a spicy and citrus-y character (next to the usual banana esters), with a fair bit of damp, basement funk coming through too, as well as some slight herbal notes. All quite dampened - the spice and citrus isn’t sharp. Taste is dark honey, banana, bread, floral, marmalade, some more spices, with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Medium-full body with very thick and creamy texture - slight carb tingle on the tip of the tongue. Pretty solid Tripel with a funkier than usual nose - good stuff.
