Straffe Hendrik Tripel is a golden triple with a sturdy white head. The aroma is spicy with hints of black pepper, coriander and ginger, and is even hints at 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 well-balanced and powerful taste.
With blackberries added to the brewkettle towards the end of the boil and more fresh berries added in the cellar there is a wonderful, sharp tartness to this IPA. The upfront bitterness is countered by the slight sweetness from the berries.
