pours cloudy golden not much head and very little lacing.aroma is upfront raw dough with overripe pear and bananas .flavor is very sweet,malt,banana and raisins.medium carbonation,medium bodied with an oily mouthfeel.alchohol is well hidden until the finish.has a nice bitter warming alchohol bite at the end.was expecting something close to a pirat but was nothing like it.very malty sweet like a quad and the yeastiness was always prestent from the aroma to the finish.fine example of a nice belgium ale.

eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle poured in an ordinary glass. Close to a Duvel. Nevertheless, stronger in alcohol, sweeter and less bitter which makes it less drinkable. A: Golden yellow color with a medium white and big bubbled head. Reasonable retention. A bit cloudy S: Sweet. Malts, fruits and the traditional Belgian yeasts. Alcoholic T: Sweet. Very malty and fruity. Yeasts. Alcohol is quite present. Lack hops and bitterness M: Heavy and molasses body as expected. Medium carbonation D: Good beer. Perhaps a bit too strong. Lack some bitterness [ BA Review @ 10/29/2010 ]

TrefwoordPunk (816) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear golden with a big white head and an aroma of toffee, spices, yeast, roasted malts, alcohol and hops. The taste is medium to heavy sweet, with some booze, unpleasant syrup and a tiny bitterness in the short finish. I don’t like this, jut a boozer.

_BaR_ (19) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
Color oro carico con schiuma particolarmente densa e persistente. Scarso aroma del tipico lievito belga. Un po’ pesante in bocca, dolciastra e con intenso effetto warming.

Donker geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zoet en licht hoppig bitter, honing, rozijn, caramel. Blijft lang hangen. Geweldig bier!

Bottle from Det Bette Ølhus as Biere du Boucanier Golden Ale. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, dry apples and yeasty. Flavor is very sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish with heavy alcohol. Too boozy. 100614
