Details

Brewed by this unique family brewery located in the heart of Bruges since 1856.

Brewing in the town centre of Bruges, Belgium since the mid-19th century, the Maes family has been producing fantastic beers for generations. The Straffe Hendrik was developed in 1981 and has been so well-received that it is now the most established product of the De Halve Maan brewery.

A huge white head and sparkling carbonation bring an aroma to the nose that is dominated by hops—which is slightly uncharacteristic of most Belgian beers. Some fruits and grains are apparent in the flavour but it is the bitterness that is most obvious, even well into the finish. Could be a bit smoother but it is still a solid strong beer and a nice palate-cleanser.

Straffe Hendrik won Belgium's Best Belgian Style Tripel at the World Beer Awards 2016.
