Oranjegoud, behoorlijk helder bier. Ruikt fruitig en naar gist. Smaakt medium zoet, licht bitter. medium co2, volle body. Lekker.

minutemat (2064) - 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 (238) - 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 (1528) - Piss-ant Valley, Greater London, 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 (4479) - 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 (203) - 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 (413) - 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

Prachtige amber kleur heerlijke hop smaak ik drink hem nu de "wild 2015" geboteld is en na een jaartje laten liggen is hij er niet slechter op geworden wel scherper en een beetje zuurder

Bottle - golden pour with big bubbly head. Sweet fruity and yeasty aroma and taste, with some spice and herbal notes, acidic and citric on the palate, pretty nice.
