Bottle. (Brief tasting notes and rating from old records) - Nice, spicy, citrus fruity, lightly malted bitter-sweet flavour. Fruity tangy finish. Very drinkable. (Backlog)

From old tasting notes. Pale yellow gold colour. Thick mousse-like white head. Soft bitter citrus malt nose. Tart, dry yeasty malt flavor. There is an underlying fruitiness that lingers throughout. Finish is dry with a spicy cardamom hop character.

JefVerstraete (3639) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2015
Old bottle bought a while ago in the Bierloods, Adegem. Hazy blond colour, white foam. Aroma of caramel and hints of banana. Dry and notes of cardboard. Hmm, a bit too old to be good.

Erzengel (9505) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2015
*Old rating, best before 12/05. Mild-trübes Bier. Etwas gewürzig-scharf, milde Hefe, frisch, mild-herb, ein wenig unrund.

Alengrin (5722) - BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2014
The original Straffe Hendrik, taken over by Riva but discontinued when Riva went bankrupt. The Brugse Straffe Hendrik Tripel which later replaced it when the Halve Maan was reopened, is a very different beer: this original was a blond session ale with malty and light fruity profile with hints of apple, a somewhat metallic undertone and herbal hops in the finish. It was quite okay as a thirst-quencher, but nothing of great interest compared to the present-day tripel beer carrying this proud name.

Botella de 25 cl de el c. Ingles, tomada en junio de 2001 (fecha de caducidad para 08-2002) Cierto aroma a lúpulo y bastante sabor a malta con un final amargo mas o menos duradero. Cuerpo medio con 6 vol fácil de beber.

In short: a apicy belgian ale.
Pours hazy dark gold-orange, with frothy off white head. Good head retention and some lacing. Yeasty, fruity aromas. Medium body, average carbonation, some oily texture. Taste is fruity, some spicy and citrusy, yeast profiled. Alcohol noticeable. Enjoyable.
