Straffe Hendrik Tripel 9° is a golden triple with a sturdy white collar. The aroma is spicy with hints of black pepper, coriander and ginger, and is even insinuating the presence of oranges.
The beer is brewed with a selection of Saaz and Styrian hops of a very high quality. The subtle blend of six special varieties of malt gives the beer a wellbalanced and powerful taste.
The palate initiates a hint of caramel, soon flowing into a certain bitterness. In the finish one can discover citrus fruits and even subtle flavours of banana. The triple has an alcohol percentage of 9° and the refermentation in the bottle generates a long natural shelf life.
The combination with zesty fish plates is a real treat, but Straffe Hendrik can also be paired with cheeses such as camembert and Brugse Blomme. Straffe Hendrik is known to be a real delicacy when combined with desserts based on pineapple or mango as well.
The 24 bottles of beer come in a cardboard box.
