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

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. Fruit and alcohol in the aroma. The clear orange beer has a large white head. A spicy, hoppy and sweet taste with a clear hint of alcohol. High carbonated.

On tap. Hazy orange color. Grassy and citrus aroma. Sweet and berry taste with a little alcohol aftertaste.. Very smooth beer. I like it.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottled, 33 cl. Shows an unclear deep golden with a big, but fizzy off-white head on its top. Fruity-spicy nose. The aroma has peach, honey, bread, some florals and herbs escorted by peppery alcohol, texture is syrupy. Long and dry, liquorique, earthy-spicy finish. Nice one.

solidfunk (3674) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Dangerously drinkable though there is a fair note of booze here. Pours murky orange with good head and lacing. Lots of floral yeast. Sweet and lightly bitter mix, with a touch of boozy sugar and some astringency. Tap at Max’s.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy golden color. Big white head. Full body and medium carbonation. Belgian yeast. Taste alcohol and a little bit of sugar. Almost no bitterness.

dagimp (706) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2014
From one of those funky Euro 330 bottles into a Duvel tulip. Pours a nondescript blondish. With tons of frothy white head. Sticky cloud lacing. Great Belgian and hoppy head. Mouthfeel is moderate to heavy. Taste is hot with significant yeast flavor and nondescript hops. Very good Belgian ipa or more likely IIPA. Not my favorite style but very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle split at 6DN, Aberdeen, 21/06/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a well appointed off beige covering that retains well. Nose is dark fruits, light metallic wash, bitter orange, caramelised sugars, grassy, light booze. Taste comprises yeast esters, boozey rinse, light tropical fruit, candied sugars, booze, dates, dried apricot, cotton candy. Full bodied, fine carbonation with a little prickle, boozey notes in the close. Ok Belgian strong.

superspak (2477) - Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2014
330 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/16/2013. Pours lightly hazy orange amber color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, light pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/yeast earthiness. Moderate yeast spice and hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange, pear, apple, pepper, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is fairly well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian strong pale ale. Good complexity and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.
