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.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue. Lots of creamy off-white head that lasts. Aroma of grain, orange peel, grass, spices and underlying alcohol. As it starts to warm a lot of funky notes start emerging. Ctirus, bitter hops, mild sweetness and definite warm booze, not a weak one. A great use of hops in this Belgian; good bitterness, but not overwhelming. I’ll never get bored with this beer!

commonshawn (449) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Tap at bulldog uptown in tulip. Light copper with good white head and great lacing. Dark fruit funk with decent yeast nose. Spicy sour fruit up front, then some grain and yeast. Spicy, some effervescent, tiny bit of waxy resin mouthfeel, more than others in style. Yaar matey.

wittz (18) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 13, 2014
Zárkózott, megközelíthetetlen, metsző erő, mögötte nyugtalan szederlekvár áramlása., mint ellenpár, melyek nem foglyai a polgári normáknak. Nem érnek össze az elemek: az áramlattal szemben haladnak. Mézes és mar, de nem fekszik az alk. szint.

Golden-amber colored beer with a nice foamy head. You can smell the alcohol and some sweet fruity aromas. The taste is very sweet at first but it becomes more gentle with time. Creamy-oily textured with a medium body. Interesting beer with a lot of great attributes, but not my style.

330 mL bottle. Hazy orange-brown pour, nice white head with good retention. Bread malt aroma, bit boozy, some fruit and yeast as well. Taste is fairly sweet, fruity, yeast. Bit of sticky body. Fairly complex and well balanced.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 26, 2014
Cette bičre est dorée mais tirant sur un laiton foncé ; mousse blanche généreuse mais éphémčre, soutenue par une carbonatation de l’enfer. Le nez est sec, il évoque les céréales, la paille, un peu de fruits jaunes en trame de fond mais surtout du blé et de l’orge doucement malté. Bouche dans les męmes notes sčches, notes de vin blanc en fin de gorgée, avec une semblance d’alcool en touche finale. Pas exactement une tripel, plutôt une sorte de Leffe blonde aux stéroďdes ; excellente dans son style, mais trčs classique, trčs retenue.

bottle aged 2 years. Hazy brown-orange pour with fluffy white head. Very bready malts, mostly sweet, yeasty, some citrus hops. Alcohol well-hidden. Good not great.
