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

JanEric (1108) - Meppel, - NOV 4, 2012
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.

goleiro (192) - Lublin, POLAND - JUN 1, 2015
Aromat nieco żelazisty, a poza tym nieco ulotny, choć belgijski. Duże wysycenie. Nieco szczypiący i lekko dziwne poczucie w ustach. Bardzo przyjemne rozgrzewanie w przełyku.

Bosskie (555) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 30, 2015
Dark brown-orange beer with a nice big white head and gentle bubbles. Smell is dominated by caramel and honey. Further with coriander and and some hoppy bitterness, touch of maltiness. Peaches and cherries.Touch of orange or mandarins. Some alcoholic bitterness. Taste is bitter sour with heavy caramel sweetness. Nicely fizzy with a dry astringent finish. Touch of minerals.

BlackHaddock (4738) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2015
28th May 2015: 330ml bottle of ’Privateer’ into a Duvel glass. Beer number three on a random tasting session I am having with myself and no one else here in my daughters house on the coast of Southern California. Gushed out the bottle, murky amber/old gold body, full and lasting white crown. Nose is malty, yeasty and fruit cake like. The taste is also malty sweet with a boozy fruit cake flavour. Tasted like it was barrel aged or something, some spirit like flavours come through from somewhere: the alcohol level being obvious yet, adding to the brews character and depth.

Hazy muddy brownish orange color. Sweet aroma; caramel, chewy fruit candy, light hops. Taste is sweet and yeasty. Medium bodied and just a touch syrupy.

suurjuust (1642) - ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2015
Hazy orange beer, big fluffy off-white head. Nose is malt and caramel, some papery and flowery-hoppy notes, spicy booze. Flavor is sweet-ish malts, caramel hints, some hops. Finishes with booze, malt, flowery hops. Lingering flowery hop notes and a whole lot of booze. A tad over-boozy for me, but still decent.

crossovert (8910) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
33cl bottle. Definitely hoppier than the orginal, seems more on the lines of an ipa but it isn’t fresh so its kind of moot.

ttoadee (862) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Bronze pour, small white head. Nose is yeast, hops and caramel malt. Bitter. Middle is alcohol, funky yeast, and malt. Finish is spicy and dry.

stoigniew (80) - Łęczna, POLAND - MAY 14, 2015
W aromacie dominuje nuta alkoholowa i herbaciana, W smaku dość słodkie i alkoholowe, ziołowe jakby likier ziołowy lub limoncella. Smakuje jak dobra nalewka, Sporo ciała, średnia pijalność i wyjątkowa piana a właściwie jęzory piany oblepiające szkło i utrzymujące się na piwie do samego końca.

ogniskowicz (368) - POLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Aromat: bardzo mocna nuta alkoholowa, słodowa nieco korzenna podstawa i ziołowość chmielu. Kompletnie nieułożony, ale paradoksalnie - niezły Smak: korzenno-przyprawowa baza z niezłą goryczką (herbaciano-ziołową) i grzejącym alkoholem (niestety niezbyt szlachetnym). Wysokie, szczypiące wysycenie. Pomimo kilku wad, prawie 11% alkoholu - piwo jest całkiem nieźle pijalne. Górna połowa średniej półki belgów.
