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

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.

bonkiedeaap (644) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
Bottle from Dranken Verheyen in Poppel. The beer is amber colored and has a large and stable broken white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is malty and fruity, with notes of citrus, fresh hops, a little caramel, spices and Belgian yeast. The taste is full bodied and sweet and then comes bitterness with a lot of carbonation and notes of fresh hops and a little alcohol are noticable. The finish is fruity, a little alcoholic and light bitter with spices.

kaserov (226) - 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 (4200) - 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 (57) - 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 (2233) - 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.
