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

No distinguishable hop aroma at all, could smell only the alcohol. Taste follows the nose with nothing but alcohol. One of the booziest beers I have ever tasted. Couldn’t even finish it.

Meh...slightly below average. I like Piraat and I like hops. Thought this would be a winning combination. Not so. Aroma was pretty weak. Light malt, stale ginger ale and a slight hoppiness. Pour was a nice enough burnt orange with a three finger white head. Taste was a sweet muddled mess. Very hot with a strong sweet, but stale malty flavor. Hops are not very present as the sweet stickiness drowns almost everything else out. Finish was alcoholic and wet. decent carbonation

330ml bottle into a goblet. Pours a hazy dark gold with a thick billowy two finger white head. Very good head retention as should be expected and awesome lacing too. Aroma is very fruity with some tropical notes poking through in between the coriander and banana yeasty esters. It provides a really nice balance and is quite enticing. A nice introduction to the beer. The flavor, unfortunately, is a bit on the harsh side. Some nice juiciness up front but this is quickly washed away by somewhat of a muddled mess. Yeasty esters along with a good it of bread but the alcohol is a little too much. Moderate bitterness but lots of warmth and a sweet and sticky mouthfeel. Overall, I really wanted to like this beer but it just misses the mark. Tone the alcohol down a bit and there might really be something here.

This new beer from Piraat is freakin’ AMAZING. Good job Piraat. I got my bottle of this in a 6-back of Belgian beers including Gulden Draak, Bornem, and Piraat (each brand having 2 different beers)... I love belgian beer and Piraat hit a home run with this Triple (3) Hop.. The Duvel Trippel Hops is a lil better but this Piraat is a close 2nd.

33cl. Bottle. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma pine, citrus, resin, malts, caramel. Taste malty sweets, hoppy bitters. Mouthfeel creamy. Great beer.

Really nice ale, super light malt body more like a wit crossed with an IPA, but the aroma and finish was of band aids.

Eructoblaster (3022) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle - 330ml. Hazy golden body with a thin white foamy head. Good hoppy aroma with malty, honeyish, coriander, and grainy hints. Alcohol is noticeable without being too agressive. Its strong hoppy taste carries malty, coriander, citrusy, and flowery notes. Ends with a slightly harsh, alcoholic, bittersweet finish. Ok.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
(bottle, 33cl) Almost cloudy, pale golden colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Yeasty, cara-malty aroma with notes of overripe fruits and mildly flowery and spicy hops. Sweet-bitter flavour, quite full bodied with a soft carbonation. Initially slightly sugary malty taste with very present notes of booze and milder fruity and spicy herbal hoppy notes; sticky, malty finish with harsh notes of alcohol and bitter hops. Does not really fit together. 15.VII.14
