Are you paying attention?
Do you like nothing more than opening the likes of a Duvel and sitting back and enjoying it?
Then you need to try this.
Piraat is Duvel on steroids.
It’s a Belgian beer with the volume up full.
It’s abso-bloody-lutely ENORMOUS.
All the marks of a classic Belgian beer are here, they’re just bigger somehow.
The bottle opens with floral fruity orchard aromas coupled with a healthy phhzzz as the bubbles hit the air.
The beer is deeply honeyed orange and just asks to be drunk.
You get a really lovely hint of Saison beers in the deceptively light, yeast filled flavours.
This though is tempered by the most lovely slug of brandy and caramel, before green apple peel leads you into a big fat smack of leaf litter hops and a final satisfying dry punch.
Throughout there’s a superbly sweet yeast crunch that rides on the shoulders of the high ABV and keeps your attention to the very last drop.
This is so good that I don’t want it to be a 330ml bottle, I want it as a 750ml even though I know I won’t see tomorrow.
