2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Triple hot but not enough bitter for me. Strong and difficult to drink. Amber copper. Raisin and citrus. Complexe mix of belgian sugars. Not so plaisant.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Interesting hop forward example of the style that is maybe a just little too strong when compared to similar brews.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled form an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy tan-brown color with a large fluffy tan head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet, spritzy fruitiness, sugar, Pez, toffee and yeast - nicely complex. The flavor was tart and chalky with pez, artificial sugar, artificiail fruit, perfume, a medicinal note and booziness throughout. Very long finish of chalk, artificial sugar, medicine and booze. Medium body. Disappointing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled (from Alko Kivihaka, Vaasa). Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, nice floral and somewhat sweetish wooden hops to it with mild alcohol. Flavour is quite similar in a nice balance. Actually I recalled the Piraat as a somewhat gluelike BSA, but atleast with the hopping in this one, the glueish alcohol was taken down quite nicely. (apparently the boozy-remembering thing went towards the 9% version...)
