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

From a package of the Lidl. Amber, minimal head., flat beer. Aroma is sweet, some fizzling in the mouth, with minimal citrus, some artificial aroma even. Sweetish taste, alcoholic, medium body, reasonable finish. Not so good at all.

Butelka. Aromat belgijski, alkoholowy. W smaku trochę słodkawe, słodowe, alkoholowe. Rozgrzewające. Wysycenie bardzo duże.

b33r (772) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Dark orange color, hazy, with medium fluffy white head and thick lacing. Aroma is faint, with belgian spices and light hops. Flavor has strong belgian yeast with a nice balance of bitter piney hops. Thin, easy to drink with just a slight alcohol tingle. Very good overall

Piana kiepska, piwo złociste, klarowne. Aromat słodki, przyprawowy, trochę owoców.Po ogrzaniu lekki alkohol. W smaku ponownie słodycz owocowa, przyprawy i średnio-niska goryczka chmielowa. Po ogrzaniu finisz alkoholowy.

erickok (4464) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2015
Light brown, large head. Sweet aroma, weet tea, alcohol, herbal perhaps... But hoppy ? No. Belgian yeast taste, alcohol. Ugh the original Piraat is a guilty pleasure but this is just guilty.... (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)

Icedwarf (917) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - OCT 31, 2015
Donkergeel bier met veel schuim. Smaak is krachtig, bitter hoppig en zoet. Verder licht fruitig zuur met iets van ananas. Smaak blijft erg lang hangen.

Teran (209) - Belgrade, SERBIA - OCT 31, 2015
Rose amber colour with so nice lacy foam. Nuts and herbs, yeast and brown sugar. Creamy texture, medium carbonation. Sweet a little bit and not hoppy almost at all. Powerful in alcohol.

PorterPounder (6529) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Lake City, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 330 ml bottle. Slightly murky medium copper pour, sticky bone-colored head, sticks around a while and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is very fragrant and malty with a molasses bent to it, some baking bread. Full bodied flavor, some toffee accents, some molasses and caramel. Some raw cake mix notes in the finish, a tad bit boozy. Thickish mouthfeel.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Orangish straw, thick, moderate to large foamy white head, nice lacing.   Musty sweet pale breadiness on the nose, which translates to the tongue.   Reminds me of the regular Piraat, but a bit more subtle.   Perhaps a bit more hop bite.   Comes across as a crisp bright Belgian Golden Ale, moreso than the standard Piraat simply because its smoother.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Nice bubbley notes on the tongue.   Seems like a solid example of a good Belgian Golden Ale.   Not cloying or overly sweet... perhaps thats where this Triple Hop comes in.   Enjoyable.

JaroMantic (6) - - OCT 4, 2015 does not count
0,33l bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Amber / dark golden body. Yeast, sweet malts and little citrus in the aroma and taste as well. Palate is quite full and long lasting. Decent strong belge ale, quite well balanced, except that alcohol comes through a little too much.

paintedmaple (605) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2015
12oz bottle...great aroma of funk and yeast. Nicely tart and dry, but with a bit of sweetness to balance the flavors. Good way to get your daily dose of alcohol.
