look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330 ml brown bottle, poured into a tulip.
I poured it very slowly as not to disturb the yeast on the bottom, but nevertheless, I got a huge head of four finger, off-white in colour, slighty froathy in texture. After a while half of it is gone, leaving quite a lace around the glass. The remaining half of the foam has an excellent retention. All that on top of a deep orange, copper-like coloured beer, and while tiny bubbles are finding their way to the surface.
Aroma is fruity, with notes of yeast, wheat, alcohol, some orange peel maybe and spices.
Taste is also fruity, mostly citrus fruits and mainly on the finish. Alcohol is notable. Bubblegum and apple notes
Medium to full body, average carbonation and very dry on the palate.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a clear amber color with some yeast particulate matter churning about. One finger of dense head forms and sticks around for a long time. Plenty of lacing is left down the glass.

Not the most intense aroma but still has nice qualities of caramel, pears, tropical fruit, with some herbal hops. Seems to have an equal proportion of malt and yeast esters.

Very enjoyable flavor of malt and yeast esters. Notes of caramel, light fruit that gives the beer a vinous quality. The label claims there are toasted malts in this beer but I fail to detect them. More than a slight alcoholic flavor and warmth in the finish. Semi-sweet flavor.

Well done bottle conditioning. Medium body with nice carbonation. My personal tastes would of liked the carbonation to be just a tad more spirited.

Very well done tripel. Will not replace St. Bernardus but still a worthy contender.

I picked up this 0.33l bottle on 05Oct12 at a great little bottle shop on the Belgian-Holland border. Quaffed it in my room Maastricht on 06Oct during a break between shopping and drinking. Cost was €1.52, fwiw.

Had a lovely, medium golden color, with a very slight haze. Carbo was plentiful and steady, and the head was healthy, off-white, foamy and fine. Lacing? Top shelf! Had a lovely nose which combined spiciness and tropical fruit. Had a medium body, with a light, prickly airiness.

Was a touch crackery, with some candi sweetness. A little more tropical fruit was present here, which segued into a dry, peppery finish. Quite nice! This really hit the spot! Prosit!!

330ml bottle served in a Chimay chalice.

A: Pours a dark orange color which is quite dark and clear to a Tripel. Beautiful, anyway. Forms a huge white to yellow colored head with great retention and a lot of lacings left around

S: Caramel malts backbone with strong notes of dark fruits, toffee and candy sugar. Quite sweet indeed. Quite bready too with strong notes of Belgian yeasts. Mild notes of flowery hops. A bit of alcohol in the very end. Less spiced than a classic Tripel but excellent anyway

T: Follows the nose. Very malty and bready beer. Notes of dark fruits, mainly plums and raisins. Toffee, candy and caramel malts. Upfront is sweet and end is considerable bitterness which is slightly citrus. Well balanced

M: Heavy creamy molasses body. Good carbonation and the classic Belgian bittersweet aftertaste

O: Very drinkable. An excellent Belgian Tripel specimens with strong personality

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. Good solid pop off the cork.

A real nice golden and clear orange amber body, and nice slow rising thin carbonation creeping up, plus a big fat rising column of fire in the middle. Head is rocky, thick white and clumpy with good retention, and clings real nicely to the sides. Really good looking tripel here.

Very clean smelling, with airy malt, and a nice candy sweetness. Hints of peppermint and menthol. Some sweet pear and apple fruits. Really nice smelling.

Palate hits with a very solid body. Nice malts roll and coat the palate with a nice candy sweetness. An interesting hop bitterness angle something between pine and matching spritzy fruit on the nose of pear. Lost of carbonation, and a little gaseous but controllable. Not boozy either.

Overall pretty solid, and it does have a nice menthol action to it on the finish.

A: The beer is hazy golden yellow in color. It poured with a finger high beige heat that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are aromas of yeast in the nose. As the beer warms up, some sweetness becomes evident, along with some hints of grassy hops.
T: The taste has flavors of malty sweetness with hints of fruit and yeast.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a good representation of the style and has its alcohol surprisingly well hidden.

Good but not great Tripel. You really have to let this one warm up all the way to get the most out of the flavors.

Pours a slightly hazy apricot/light copper color with a lot of floaters swimming around. Really needs a hard pour to get any size bubbly white head. The head fades fast. Minimum lacing.

Aroma is mild....apples and pears and a little alcohol. Not that complex.

Taste is pretty good. Apples and pears, some warming alcohol, hints of candi sugar and belgian yeast. Still fairly subdued but the more complex elements show up in the taste.

Mouthfeel is a hair light but still rich. The alcohol is subdued, does not affect the drinkability.

There are better Tripels out there but this one is still fairly decent.

On tap at Lucky Baldwin's in Pasadena, CA.

Pours a slightly murky honey orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, yeast, slight spice, and some citrusy aromas. Taste is much the same along with some honey and chalky flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice aromas and flavors. Good stuff.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A honey-gold pour is a dark murky orange is the vessel filled with a vibrant fulfillment of yeasty goodiness. The head is milky and frothy, a finger high with a strong rate of retention. A strong effervesce makes all that large macro particles of yeasty goodiness dance with delight while making my heart flutter. Love the extra junk in the glass as always.

S: The nose was restrained, bright oranges, with a lemony sourness with some wet pale grain muskiness.

T: The flavor was musky grains, lemony sourness, fresh greenery that all blends beautifully together. Oranges, a hint of fresh grapefruit, wheat, wet citrus with a bit of musky tropical fruitiness. The flavor is bright and spicy, clean, and well polished and rounded with a tight crisp nature. A small bit of toasted grain sweetness with some musky yeastiness, bread, lemon and pineapple rounds things out.

M: Mouthful was crisp and bright from the carbonation with a nice frothy body.

O: Overall crisp clean and very easy to consume and forget this is 9.0%abv that feels and drinks almost like a session in the beginning. Enjoyable triple with a hidden alcohol that makes for easy, generous sips. Not overly spicy, overly inundated with alcohol, just a very good example of a cleanly brewed and well crafted triple that many will overlook in their pursuit of the next bigger, bolder thing. The alcohol will catch up with you in the end, but you’ll enjoy the ride getting there. Crazy smooth drinkability even with all those yeasty chunks.

T: spices up front again with a lot of candy augar and white grape flavors. The finish is of sweet breads.

M: medium-light body with lowish carbonation, this beer isn't too thick, but is a little on the watery side.

O: an alright tripel. It needs a crisper body and more depth, but it's still solid.

750 ml into a goblet. This was under the pressure, the cork almost came off into the ceiling.

A - Pours a deeper darker golden color. Lots of pearly white head formation, but the beer itself doesn't show much bubbling. Must be fairly carbonated, just not letting it out.

S - Bright and spicy nose - lots of coriander, clove, and a high amount of white pepper. Seems almost sweet in the background. A great tripel nose.

T - Starts off pretty dry, very balanced and grainy flavors. Very earthy flavors start to grow, but then the citrus and spice start to come through in the mid-stream. Finishes with a more sour citrus bite, almost acidic. Alcohol warmth is lightly present.

M - Very strongly carbonated, moderate bodied beer. Finishes very clean with just a little bit of retained alcohol warmth. Its dryness is clear when you see how little of this high alcohol beer is left behind.

O/D - A solid tripel - especially if you lean towards the dry and clean side. Not as sweet as today's modern tripels, which makes me think this goes back to the age where these beers were a little more wild and more attenuated (maybe not clean). Worth a try.

Poured into a goblet, thin head with light lacing.
Aroma had strong fruit overtone, mostly citrus. Can a smell be tangy? this was. The color was a deep orange-red.
Mouthfeel was full but not heavy. Taste was complex, fruit layered with malt and hops. A very smooth brew, well balanced between sweet and bitter. This was one of the 180 offerings at Bilbo Baggins, in Alexandria, VA. I strongly recommend the beer and the pub.

Review from 3/2011 notes. Poured into a Nostradamus flute glass. Pours a cloudy medium orange amber with tons of floating yeast particles. A thin white head with light lacing and good retention. Aroma of light fruit, malt and Belgian spicing. Taste is similar to aroma. Pleasant light fruit, sweet malt, spice. A bit of a hop kick in the finish. Nicely made tripel. Worth a revisit.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled in 2010. Pours cloudy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger dense off white head with fantastic retention that reduces to a thick cap that lasts. Some spotty lacing on the glass, with plenty of carbonation streaming up. Aromas of big lemon, pepper, clove, apple, orange, coriander, honey, biscuit, herbs, and yeast spices. Nice and well balanced aromas. Taste of big lemon, pepper, orange, pear, biscuit, honey, coriander, herbal, and floral notes. Lingering notes of citrus, pear, pepper, and herbs on the finish for a while. Great balance of flavors with nice complexity. Medium-high carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel noticed after the carbonation died down. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming on the finish present. Nice and smooth drinking for the level of alcohol. Overall this is a fantastic Tripel offering. Great complexity, balance, and smooth drinking for the level of alcohol.

A small bottle

Poured a dark gold with brown hues. Clear with a white head and good lacing.

Nose is apricot and sweet with malt. Might be bubblegum too!!

Taste is fruity with pears, sweetness, hops, malt. A complex beer with very good clean taste. Mouth feel is quite nice with just the right carbonation. Definitely a fine brew.

Straffe Hendrik Brugse Tripel Bier 9˚
25.4 oz bottle, corked and caged
$9.99 @ Total Wine & More, Claymont, DE

Appearance: Clear, deep golden/amber body. The moderately-sized creamy white head drops readily but it maintains a solid collar throughout. Sparse, splashy lacing lines the glass. Subsequent pours become hazy as the sedimented yeast is roused.

Aroma: Fruity and yeasty, gently caramelish and honey-like. Floral and spicy, almost minty hops.

Flavor: All of the gentle fruit and yeast found in the nose carries over into the flavor. I find plenty of pear and apple, as well as a bit of citrus zest (lemon, orange), and some soft tangerine and peach. It's gently caramelish, or perhaps more like lightly browned sugar. It's honeyish and floral. There are suggestions of spice to it although they're light (cinnamon, anise, ginger); and along with the spicy, seeming minty, leafy and floral hops it's just a slight touch cola-like. The alcohol never shows; and it's mildly bitter with just enough that in combination with the spiciness it never becomes "sweet". It's more rich and complex than you might expect of a "tripel", but this is a Brugse tripel. It's very rounded, and you don't find any specific note, or notes, at any certain point as it crosses the palate. They're pretty much all there, and sometimes you find different things at different times, especially in the very long-lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full and dextrinous in body. Well-carbonated, it initially bristles the palate, but then becomes more "foaming" as it warms, and thus more "creamy".

Overall: Quite an interesting and charming beer! Highly satisfying. Quite unique. Worth seeking out!

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

750ml into a tulip. Pours a nearly clear new copper penny, major encouragement needed to get a small yellowish head, minor lacing.

Aroma is fairly spicy with honey and confectioner's treats.

Exceedingly sweet, lacks a balanced offsetting dryness. Clove, honey, pineapple and apricots. The slow fading aftertaste is primarily a phenolic note backed by minor solvent alcohol. Sweetness never leaves for the duration of the taste. Full bodied chewy mouthfeel, while not cloying, it coats the tongue.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a puffy, lingering white head. Big bubbles of carbonation are very apparent. Looks a little bubbly for my liking.

S: Smooth, gentle aromas of cream, biscuits, lemon, orange, pineapple, and subtle coriander are evident. There is a slight hint of fiery alcohol on the nose as well.

T: Notes of cream, biscuits, minerals, coriander, lemon, orange, grass, kumquat, and pineapple wash across the palate. The finish is long and intense with notes of tart citrus washed in prickly, peppery alcohol.

M: Medium to full bodied, though it's closer to the latter than to the former. Dry, firm, and spritzy in the mouth.

O: This is a nice tripel that hits all the high points of the style. Out of the bottle I found it to be slightly too prickly and bubbly to really be a knockout, but it is a very good tripel nonetheless.

Poured from a 25.4 ounce caged and corked bottle into my Chimay chalice. Cork says 2009 on it.

My wife and I visited the Straffe Hendrik brewery during a 2001 visit to Belgium and loved the beer. I saw Straffe Hendrik in Whole Foods and decided to pick up a bottle for us to share. She was pregnant at the time, so I had to wait some time to crack it open.

Beer pours a hazy golden amber. Big bubbles of boisterous carbonation created a good two fingered, fluffy white head.

Nose is both fruity and bread. I get some real sweetness, almost like golden raisins and some apple. The traditional Belgian yeast aroma in noticeably absent.

The taste is very rich. The hops make their presence known with a nice dose of bitterness. There's also a big helping of tropical fruits and some bready and carmel malts. The flavor is very well rounded, complex and balanced.

The mouthfeel is bubbly, dry and well carbonated. It's a medium bodied beer.

Overall, after an absence of a decade, I may have built up Straffe Hendrik in my mind a little bit. It's still a very good triple, but not the mind blowing beer I remember from Brugges. Perhaps my palette has matured. In any case, a happy walk down memory lane.

Lovely clear amber nice lacing

The nose is very subdued, but apples and other esthers are there, just very light, as on the taste. This is a basic triple, nothing fancy, with a solid malt backbone. The ale finishes slightly sweet, which is fine, but the complexity is lacking.

Nice silky mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation. Overall, it is a bit above average, but nothing to write home about. A bit high at 9% abv for an afternoon sipper, but it's hidden well. Well made, just nothing out of the ordinary.

On tap at Brassiere Beck, Washington, D.C.:

The beer appeared a clear, dark yellow, almost a copper color with a thick fluffy head with decent retention. No lacing to note.

The nose had citrus to it along with a nice bready quality and a bit of alcohol was noticeable.

The taste followed the nose very well along with some noticeable spices and perhaps some earthy hops and a somewhat nice boozy finish.

The beer had a medium feel to it with great carbonation. The beer was clean, crisp and very pleasant to drink. Overall, a very good example of the style.

750 mL bottle taken home from this year's Belgian Beer Fest. It was poured into my Duvel tulip.

Straffe Hendrik's Tripel pours a totally clear dark orange. It's a little dark for the style, and it has a bone colored head that maxes out at about four fingers in height. Head retention is pretty good, but aside from a near solid ring at the top of the glass, lacing is very spotty. The nose is disappointingly weak, but there are some classic tripel elements presence. A sweet pale fruit aroma (primarily apricots) by far dominates, and it's supported by a surprisingly potent earthy herbal hop smell. Spice/clove phenols are barely there. The flavor starts out just like the nose, big apricot/fruit and a little bit of candy sweetness. The mid palate bitterness is a little bit sharper than I would have anticipated, but still keeps itself in check. Noble hop influence is a little bit less intense here, leaving a little more room for the phenols to shine through. The mouthfeel is up there with the best of them. The body is light, yet creamy, and the carbonation is effervescent and lively. Straffe Hendrik's tripel is a decent beer, but I'm pretty confident I could find a tripel I prefer to this one on the shelves of most decent bottle shops.

A: I poured into a tripel glass. he color is golden to reddish yellow/gold. A hard pour had a nice thick 2" head. cloudy. good lacing.

S: Bread like nose, I guess biscuit like is good....Fruity and hoppy. cereal and flowery at the same time. hops come out citrus like. with lots of hop perfume.

T: Thick rich and sweet at first. its coats your palate, then you get that flowery hop bite, nice balance, dry finish. its a tad on the sweet side for a tripel. but who says it cannot be sweeter?
Still not my favorite I had. as its warms up past 50f, the malt really stands out and you get even more hops, nice balance there.

M: medium carbonation and medium body, dry. easy to drink no alcohol even at 9%, kind of dangerous to the non experienced REAL Belgian beer drinker.

O: I think I have to finish the 4 pack to know more, I will write more later. I like it.

Pours translucent gold with a lot of snowflake/dandruff yeast flakes. Huge foam that has staying power. Nose reminds me of yeast-bready banana bread, holiday cakes, and pineapple display at a Hawaiian buffet. Palate offers plenty of pineapple, tartness, wheaty/malty backbone, and a chewy yeastyness all through till the finish. Also has a musty, female pheromone sort of mustiness to it, in a good way.
