3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden yellow, with a fluffy white head. Aroma is a lovely acidic green apple sourness, with perfume and spearment highlights. Plenty of biscuits and yeast accompany the primary aromas. Apple-cider character is reminiescent of some of the better Pilsners Iíve had. Palate is shortbread with dried granny smith apples. Perfume persists, but in a bitter, hoppy, rosepetal style. Finish is tart and sour with the apples and yeast in the forefront. Very sessionable, shame itís 9%.

Dark yellow with a high white head. For me, the foam spewed right out after opening the bottle! Taste is bitter sweet with strong hops, and starts very hot alcoholic. Overall an unusual belgian beer, I recommend it.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Golden with a big white head. Fruity sweet aroma with some citrus. Alcohol sweetness and sharpness are at first noticable but after that more subtle flavours rise to the surface. Yeasty hopbitter aftertaste. Not bad but not as good as Duvel

I think the government liquor store carries this because theyíve heard somewhere that Piraat is good and donít know theyíre getting the wrong one. My friend said this tasted like glue, I think sheís crazy, itís pretty good, nice "round" ale flavour with lots of alcohol that goes well with the style haha. Nice spicy ester/phenol taste, fun to belch afterwards. Thatís what sticks with you, the belching.
So yeah, spicy alcohol.
