This is the regular Straffe Hendrik Tripel, but this time fermented with wild Brettanomyces yeast strains.

nearbeer (4053) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 14, 2015
2014 vintage, 33 cl bottle. There’s a light haze on the active orange body that sustains a creamy disc of foam. Aroma of white grape, peach, mild funk and bits of citrus toffee and wood. Flavors of vanilla, musty white wine and a bit of tart, funky apple with the bitter core. Medium body is too fizzy with a high carbonation level, but has a nice balance.

Well, I can imagine some people will like this kind of brews, but for me this isn’t something that gives extra to Straffe Hendrik. But I’m not into "Wild" mostly anyways.

minutemat (2252) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
330ml bottle, 2015 @ Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a hazy amber with persistent white head. Aroma is funky brett and lime. Taste brings a vibrant bretty character with white wine, lemon, sour citrus and vanilla notes. A completely different beer to the normal tripel. Complex and intriguing taste. Definitely going to age a couple of bottles of this!

Ambro206 (268) - ITALY - MAY 2, 2015
Una birra veramente interessante. Colore biondo scarico e schiuma abbondante. Gli aromi della tripel ci sono anche se rimangono un po’ in secondo piano rispetto a quelli classici dei Brett: coperta di cavallo e sudore. Ottima combinazione ed equilibrio nella bevuta. Nulla fuori posto. Corpo medio, alcool piacevole, carbonazione alta ma corretta.

Gary (1532) - Piss-ant Valley, Somerset, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
33cl 2015 bottle; Grate sour Bretty nose ,expressive acidic vinegar notes too; Golden colour ,a subtle white head. This smells Orval like ,or a resemblance to aged bottles ... Its a bretty palate -intertwined with the base beer of a Triple .. Pretty fucken good .

jfb (4534) - Freising, GERMANY - APR 28, 2015
(bottle) hazy deep golden colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of pears, floral hops and raisins, quite metallic, with some bretty funk, lemon peel and a light phenolic earthiness. flavour is mostly the same, straw, caramel and earth, with more phenols, some brett, a hint of pineapple and a dry light-bitter finish. medium- to heavy-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

Hamirubi (222) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
10cl sample at the Zythos Beer Festival (Leuven, April 25th 2015). A beer very different from the normal Straffe Hendrik: Is it fair to say that this beer is an Orval Trappist challenger? It certainly has the same dry Orval taste - very dry even. The golden brew has some sweets, some bitters. Lovely, although in a duel... I definitely would prefer the Orval.

Alpha10 (415) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
2015/04/27 - Bottle at De Halve Maan brewery in Bruges. Pours a translucent dark rust colour with a large, fluffy, white head that quickly reduces and leaves ample lacing. Aroma is Brett funk, barnyard, honey, citrus, dough and herbal hops. Taste is barnyard funk, tart citrus, sweet honey, dough and herbal hops. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with mildly biting carbonation and a tart, slightly medicinal finish. Pretty good. Enjoyed the Brett/Triple combo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
