Piraat is a wickedly rich and rounded brew that packs a mighty punch. The powerful glow builds up from inside. Deep golden with a subtle haze. Lots of hops and malt. Mild sweetness. Reminiscent of bread dough, spices and tropical fruits.

Clear gold with a large fluffy white head. Aroma of hops, spice and a touch of alcohol. Tastes slightly sweet, fruity with a warming alcoholic/hoppy finish.

trappist glass: spicy alcohol on the lips then a sweet and great doughy and banana aftertaste. i like it. if only it were more together on the tongue, rather than after i swallow it. oh! ARRRGGHHH! I’m a Sea Dragon.

Clear golden body with a large frothy white head. The head lasted the distance and left good lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma was of spice , alcohol and cinnamon. Taste was sweet, buttery/oily, light pepper, spices again and the alcohol is certainly present and warming but not offensive.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2004
Sweet iron and hop nose. Small head and low carbonation for a Belgian ale. Sweet, full bodied, spicy, and fruity. The finish is long and alcoholic and full of sweetness. Good, but this beer is too sweet for my palate.

hopdog (9713) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Poured a medium orange color with a huge head. Aromas of spices, alcohol and oranges. Spicy, orange, alcohol (just like it smells) taste. Moderate alcohol aftertaste (but bearable). Sweet with a bitter bite to it.

Massive, thick, foamy white head. Clear golden body with moderate carbonation. Thick cottony lacing. Classic citrus and banana nose of a tripel plus some spice, yeasty aroma and a vague leathery quality. Flavor is very distinct with elements of leather, fruit peels, more spice, and prominent alcohol. This is a big beer and I enjoyed it considerably.

10.5%? Wow! I had no idea. The aroma was like walking through an apple orchard. The medium white head was supported by a light yellow body. It tasted appley with a beer influence.

Fruity, spicy, and sweet Belgian. Golden color. Not to shabby, but for some reason I expected more.
