The palate is led by fruity citrus, banana, and raisin. It’s sweetened further by Belgian candied sugar and held together with bready malt. The tasting is then balanced with spicy pepper and coriander followed by some bitter noble hops.
Its feel is crisp, dry and effervescent with a medium body and high carbonation.
The Straffe Hendrik Bruges Tripel is a fantastic representation of the style.
De Halve Maan recommends the following food pairings with their Straffe Hendrik Bruges Tripel: cheeses of camembert and Brugse Blomme; desserts based on pineapple or mango.

About the Tripel
The Belgian Tripel originated at the Trappist monastery Westmalle. Its color ranges from deep gold to copper with good clarity and effervescence. Its feel should be around medium with high carbonation and high attenuation for a seemingly dry finish. Though high in alcohol, the booze should be masked well. Its palate and aroma are spicy, fruity, with a well-rounded malt character and moderate bitterness. Comparatively, the Tripel is darker and fuller than the Belgian Strong Pale Ale with more pronounced phenols than esters. And it’s not as strong or full as the Belgian Strong Dark Ale or Quadrupel.
