Pours a hazy golden, orange with a massive white head, aroma is spicy, floral perfume, under ripe bananas alcohol is present but not offensively, taste is initially sweet, but soon taken over by the sourness, nice dry finish. The mystique and exclusivity does add an extra aspect to this beer, but it's still a lovely beer in its own right.

Tap .. deep gold .. great foam .. honey, yeast, and lots of booze .. wow, a heavy alcohol driven beer .. way to out of whack to be truly enjoyable .. . . My wife lies to me. My beer company betrays me. Americans are giving Mexicans diarrhea. What the hell is going on here?

Is this beer better because of its exclusivity? Maybe. I remember trying the most easy drinking 11.5% beer I can remember. I tried so many beers in Bruge that week but this was the best. Wonderfully sweet and very acquired. Trying this before or after a IPA or stout would make this foul. But after that 3 sip, you are in heaven! Definitely in my top 5.

Hazy orange beer, white head. Quite sweet aroma, lots of spicy yeast. Light citrus. Quite sweet flavour, light bitter touch. Mild bitter finish, pronounced spicy yeast.

On tap at Staminee de Garre - Golden colour with creamy beige head, alcoholic, fruity and yeasty smell. Taste: bitter, yeasty, grainy, creamy, fruity, alcohol and spicy. A decent enough beer, but worth the tourist hype?

On-tap in the lovely ’Staminee De Garre’ many times: this review is of one taken on 17 Oct 2012: poured into the usual goblet shaped glass. Old gold body with huge foaming head that subsided enough to see I’d been poured more than it intitially looked. A malty fruit basket of smells hit the nose: they carried on into the taste as well. Add a yeasty feel and a musty nudge to the flavours and you’re about there. Smooth and easy to drink: the alcohol well hidden, goes nicely with the cheese given along side the beer when in De Garre.

Beautiful creamy foam, very warm and complex body of flavours. Alcohol 11%. Apparently based on piraat 10.5. My favorite beer on draught in Brugge.

Not sure if this is correct, but I got redirected to here. Drank a "Blauwe Kater" @ Blauwe Kater, Leuven. Warm aroma reminding me of christmas. Some caramel and burned malts. Darkbrown reddish colour, could have been by bad lighting. Warm full taste. Some sourness, cherry, prumes, caramel sweetness, alcohol. Sticky mouthfeel but again this warm alcoholic feeling.

Pours a bright orange color with a tall white head. Very sweet nose with a bit of alcohol. Some fruity esters, a bit of banana, and sugar. Light citrus peel notes and a bit of spice. The sweetness makes up most of the flavor. Tons of sugar and sweet citrus, some spice, yeast, and banana fruitiness. Light pear and apple esters as well.

Tried on tap at Mongoose versus Cobra in Houston. A Belgian triple with fruity notes, great beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
