Sweet and delicious. Not as hoppy as I was expecting with the triple hop title.

Growler shared with the old man. Pours hazy golden with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet pears, some apple, yeast funk, slightly dusty, with some fruity and grassy hop character. Flavor follows with lightly sweet pear, some light hop bite, yeasties, basically like regular Piraat with a slight but more bite. Medium bodied with medium plus carbonation. Overall pretty solid. What’s with the low score here? Pretty much just like the regular version but a bit lighter on the palate with the hop additions.

Pours a slightly hazy honey golden, pillowy off-white head is almost an inch thick and retains very well.

Smells of citrus and bretty yeast over dry grassy malts with a notable woody hoppiness.

Tastes of grassy malts with some hints of citrus and distinct Belgian esters with a dry grassy hop finish.

Body is medium with a tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

It's literally a hoppier Piraat. That means its just as good as regular Piraat but with more hops. If you think that sounds good, you'll like it. Otherwise you probably won't. I'd personally take regular Piraat over this, but at the same time this is quite good and worth trying.

330ml stout as ever was bottle, a refugee from a current mixed Belgian pack from this brewery.

This beer pours a hazy, medium copper amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and somewhat rocky ecru head, which leaves some stellar pockmarked concrete wall lace around the glass as it slowly abates.

It smells of tart tropical (pineapple, kiwi, and guava) fruit, semi-sweet bready caramel malt, musty leather, a weird milkiness, a soft earthy yeast sourness, and a touch of warming metallic alcohol. The taste is sweet, gritty, and grainy pale and caramel malt, an overdose of candy sugar, rather saccharine orange cream and spearmint-eque piney hop notes, musty, and strangely phenolic and funky yeast, and a sidling warming booziness.

The carbonation is fairly sedate, barely a tickle to be had for a song here, the body a steady medium weight, but seemingly sugar-boosted in its somewhat clammy and calculated smoothness. It finishes well off-dry, the muddled malt and sweetness addenda washing over any lingering hop aspirations, if there were ever any at all.

A crazily off-kilter beast, this one is - more Tripel-like in its base malt, yeast, and alcohol bearing, before the anemic attempt at hopping it up even has a chance to underwhelm. Too hot and throat aggrieving to really recommend as a good example of the style.
