A: Dusty copper, cloudy to the point of no transparency, some particles floating within. Topped with 2 fingers of light beige rock candy head and lacing.

S: Crème brulee, burnt bock like quality, candy sugar, light cantaloupe fruitiness. A little alcohol. A little floral daisy like quality, phenols and prunes.

T: Phenols, prunes, crème brulee, candy sugar, light fruitiness. A little lemony quality, solid sweetness, a burnt bitter finish, a hint of lemon oil like the zest of a lemon. Fruity and floral as well.

M: Thick, syrupy body with a light oily citrus coating on the tongue. Medium fine bubbled carbonation.

O: It’s listed as a Belgian IPA, but really different from others in this style I’ve had. Strong, somewhat bock like, and like a strong pale ale in many ways. Bought and drank in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Oct 16th, 2014.

This was really good. The hop character came through really well. Nice apple and pepper notes in the nose. Earthy in the taste, with some malt breaking through the hops. Hops make up the finish. The alcohol is noticed but pretty well masked here. Really good beer.

Pours a hazed golden hue into a Delirium Tremens chalice it looks majestic big frothing white head with fine Belgian lacing left on my glassware.

Aroma has tart green apples and green fresh cut grass hop notes, even a bit of heavenly pilsner notes in a big Belgian ale…great stuff.

Flavor has juicy fruit upfront tart apples, raisins, herbaceous, citrus, and herbal grassy hops great triple hopped Piraat, I’ve been drinking the standard for over ten years. This stuff stands up to the original.

Malty layers explode on the palate nice carbonation carries the body very well, medium bodied with effervescent carbonation.

Overall a great interpretation of the original Piraat with a bit more hops!

No distinguishable hop aroma at all, could smell only the alcohol. Taste follows the nose with nothing but alcohol. One of the booziest beers I have ever tasted. Couldn't even finish it.

Poured from a green label 750 ml corked bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Big two finger off white head which slowly settles into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A yeasty and fruit Belgian aroma with hints of spice along with citrus and earthy hops. Upfront scent of Belgian yeast with spicy hints of clove, peppers, and funk. Pale malt with hints of wheat, grains, caramel, straw, and biscuit. Floral and earthy hops with hints of damp grass. Citrus hop hints of orange, lemon zest, pineapple, and melon. Big Belgian fruit hints of green apple, pear, white grape, and banana. Also some hints of bubblegum and Belgian candied sugar along with some alcohol. A pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a fruity and yeasty Belgian taste with big notes of spice, citrus, and earthy hops. Big upfront presence of Belgian yeast with spice notes of clove, pepper, and farmhouse funk. Pale malt with notes of grains, straw, wheat, biscuit, and caramel. Moderate floral and earthy hop presence with some grassy notes. Citrus fruit notes of lemon, orange, pineapple, and melon. Dried fruit notes of pear, green apple, banana, and white grape. Notes of bubblegum and sweet Belgian candied sugar. A very good Belgian taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a fairly high level of carbonation. Juicy, spicy, and somewhat prickly with a drying finish. Some alcohol heat is felt but it isn’t overly hot.

Overall: A very good twist on the Piraat Ale. The added hops aren’t overpowering but add a nice juicy and floral kick.
