Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) A younger sibling to the older, stronger and classical Piraat. Golden pilsener colour with a slight cloudiness, fizzy head from a high carbonation. Nice, fruity nose. Some initial sweetness balanced well by the hops. Pronounced alcohol glow although never unpleasantly alcoholic. Not sophisticated but a very decent brew indeed. 250601

oh6gdx (20842) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 20, 2006
Bottled. Hazy yellow colour with lots of "yeastclouds", big fluffy white head. Hoppy, metallic and very alcoholic aroma. The alcohol stings out almost like vodka aroma. Flavour is yeasty, fruity, glueish and alcoholic. Biting carbonation. Not too pleasant as whole.

Dedollewaitor (14089) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2007
10,5 % with the 9% label instead of the one shown in the picture?. Believe that should be corrected. Unclear golden with quick disappearing white head. Aroma of strong spices/yeast/fruit & alcohol. Taste of sweet malts. Warmth from alcohol. Filling smooth body with a medium live carbonation. Pleasant lasting finish. Ok from van steenberge.

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2011
Bottle at Cardinal. It pours an almost clear body. Some yeasty clouds in the orange-golden body. A small, off-white head sits on top. Slightly oxididized and buttery on the otherwisw fruity and sugary sweet nose. The flavor is sweet, fruity and a bit buttery, some alcohol too. Full body, lots of carbonation and some alcohol warmth. Fruity, buttery finish. Not bad, but both a bit after BB-date and far from the level of Duvel. Didn’t deduct points caused by the date. 101113
