Straffe Hendrik Wild Tasting Box SetStraffe Hendrik
ORIGIN: Belgium (Brugge)
Bottled only once a year, Straffe Hendrik Wild is a wild version of the famous Straffe Hendrik Tripel. This traditional beer is re-fermented with 'Brettanomyces' yeast, which creates distinctive fruity aromas that harmonize with the rich use of aromatic hop varieties.
The wild yeasts give the beer a longer natural shelf life and taste evolution over the years. The beer needs a longer maturation in the bottle before it can be released.
Only after three months in the cellars is the fermentation of the wild yeasts completed and the young beer drinkable. The beer, however, continues to evolve in the following years. The bitter hop flavors become softer, while the wild yeasts continue to work and form fruity and floral aromas.
The Wild Tasting Box set consists of Wild 2015 x 2 bottles, Wild 2016 x 2 bottles, Wild 2017 x 2 bottles and a complimentary trappist beer glassware.
