COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has an equally exquisite taste as Piraat but combined with the finest hops.

Bottle from Bradleys. Pale amber with a deep thick head. Loads of soft fruit with mild peppery notes. Decent carbonation.

kaserov (172) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 4, 2016
Color ámbar claro con capa de espuma blanca de más de tres dedos de grosor, muy cremosa. Carbonatación a tope (no tan presente en boca). Refermentación en botella, por lo cual está llena de restos. Aroma a malta, a alguna fruta que no soy capaz de captar (quizá plátano), a levadura. Interesante ver que aunque utilizan 4 tipos de lúpulo, no se perciben en el aroma. Dudo que hagan dry-hopping, pero también dudo que los 4 lúpulos utilizados se agreguen durante el cocinado. Curioso también que usen 4 lúpulos pero la llamen Triple Hop... Sabor maltoso (levadura muy presente), algo dulce, con final medianamente amargo que se mantiene. Sin presencia de lúpulo, de nuevo (¿por qué?) El alcohol es difícil de captar, siendo sinceros. Todo un acierto. Me encantaría probar la Piraat original. Quién sabe, quizá más adelante...

Nate (4186) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2016
From bottle. Sweet musky malt notes with honey, melon, and light hop notes. Medium amber hazy with foamy white lacing head. Medium heavy body with vigorous carbonation and alcohol warming. Starts sweet and musky with alcohol warmth, mild bitterness, and lots of malt. Big sweet alcoholic finish and increased bitterness. Sweet after.

MihaKu (44) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - AUG 26, 2016
The aroma is on the weak side, but the taste is superior! Bread, herbs, soy sauce, smoke. Orange, hazy body, minimal, white head. Medium sweet, heavy bitter, lightly sour. Full bodied, thick feel. Lively, with bitter, long finish.

McNeillR (2227) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Hazy golden, grassy white head and soft lacing. Nose is gritty malt, boozy and soft citrus. Initial taste is rusty and firmly yeasty. Carbonation firm and clean enough mouthfeel despite the ABV.

AshtonMcCobb (5240) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle thanks to Nihtila. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - tangy Tripel notes. Taste - dried orange, green stalks then dry tangy citrus again on the finish. Palate - close to medium bodied with a tangy texture and a long dry tangy and bitter finish. Overall - quite a bitter version of the Abbey Tripel style.
