COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Straffe Hendrik Heritage is a special variety of the Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel, as it a one year oak barrel aged beer. The beer is brewed in autum and is only available in a limited edition. The taste and fragrance of the beer are very complex and evolve through the years. The tannin from the barrels blends exquisitely with the special malts in the beer. The combination of the spiciness and bitterness of the quadrupel with the subtle taste of wine and wood from the barrels is inimitable. Licorice and dark fruits like raisins, prunes and figs can also be discovered. With age the beer will develop a hint of porto as well. Note: Cognac and/or Burgundy Barrels.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 Prachtig bier. Je proeft duidelijk dat deze in wijnvaten heeft gerijpt. Toch is dit niet overheersend en blijft het bier. Mooie donkere kleur, goede schuimkraag, verfrissende ietwat zurige nasmaak. In de geur ook iets dropachtigs. Ik heb nu de 2013, 2014 en 2015 op, maar omdat er steeds een jaar tussen zit kan ik niet beoordelen of daar echt verschil in zit.

huineman (734) - Madrid, SPAIN - FEB 25, 2017
2015 vintage, 75 cl bottle served in Westvleteren XII small glass. Pours clear and crisp liver brown with red shades. Tan head is thick but short-lingering. Aroma is intense and complex: red berries, a fantastic hint of lambic beer: cider, fermenting bread dough; caramel, moroccan leather, blackberry, violet, chocolate, ripe banana, sandal, prunes, Morello cherry... Taste starts sweetish but immediately shifts to lambic tart. Texture is velvety, with nice fizziness. Very long finish with no bitterness whatsoever. Fantastic.
