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.

Boca 0,33L - s obzirom na količinu dobro je da se i ovoliko malo osjeti hmelj...dosta slatkasto pivo, osjeti se malo hmelja

Bottle. clear golden, but with a head that didn't last. Dry and hoppy, but not overdone as it was well balanced by the malt. Very smooth and classy but not as hoppy as I was expecting.

I found this bottle at the Grain d'Orges in Crissier. I have tried this beer tonight, Mercure hotel, Paris Gare de Lyon. Best before 07/2017. In my point of view, I was not impressed by this beer, expecting something a bit better. The color is brown/orange and troubled, thin and white foam, normal carbonation. The first thing with this beer is that you really feel the degree of alcool, not well hidden, heavy for the palate, metalic, sugar, malt. The sensation of hop is heavy, not really fruity and not so well balanced, a sensation of something burnt. For me, it is the kind of beer to finish at the hospital like a teenager that he tried for the first time a beer.

Czuć ananasa w aromacie i posmaku. Aromat słaby poza tym. Piwo przeciętne, ale nie najgorsze. Słabo ukryty alkohol

Miodowa barwa piwa, półprzejrzyste, trochę mętne. W aromacie wyraźnie czuć cytrusy, ananasa, drożdże. W smaku czuć to, co w aromacie +chmiel. Alkohol troszkę gryzie w przełyk, a sądzę, że świeży Piraat gryzie bardziej (piłem leżakowanego parę miesięcy), ale oceniam to, co sam czułem. Praktycznie brak jakiejś większej goryczki. Niezłe piwo, przyjemne do wypicia.

DraftDodger (1660) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2017
Copenhagen 15/9 2017. 33 cl bottle from "Den Gamle Købmand". Ship wit a lot of sails sporting Jolly Rogers on the label. Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Settles as patchy thin layer of white foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is prominently of citrus, sweet lemonade, basement odor. It actually does not advertise the fairly high ABV. Light carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is quite sweet and sugary followed by strong bitterness. Aftertaste is earthy and bitter. Kind of strange combination of properties - but at least it's interesting.

3.6
CraftyHare (112) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2017
330ml bottle pours deep amber with foamy off-white head. Dried fruit, brown sugar and heavy spice. Tastes of dark fruit, citrus, molasses, intense aged hops, caramel malt, yeast, peppery spice and alcohol. Mild bitterness on the finish. Sweet and sugary with a fair whack of booze, but it works.

IndianaRed (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle. Deep golden with a full dense white head. Lots of classic Belgian pale flavors. Smooth full bodied and soft warming abv character. Would not have guessed ove 10% tho. Very good.
