Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel
I got a chance to try Straffe Hendrik Quadrupel on draft at The Bier Haus in Savannah GA. It was recommended by my friend Brian who has a great deal more experience with Belgian beers, so I dove right in. The taste is of over ripe dark fruits, with the stand out flavor being figs. I am finding this beer very earthy and a little woody, and there is almost a smokey thing (but that isn’t quite the right flavor) on the finish. Not as sweet as most quads, this has a more grounded, almost leathery, taste and feel to it. A unique Quad that I really enjoyed quite a bit.
