February 10th

With beer, as with most of life, there are small intangibles that make the difference between something good and something great. This is especially true for Belgian ales, where a lot of the key ingredients are similar, but only few brewers can utilize them to create an amazing beer. At first, Piraat can seem like a lot of other golden Belgian ales: sweet, bready, notes of honey and a crisp fruitiness with a dry finish. But the way it comes together makes all the difference, with the just the right amount of each element and a strong 10.5%ABV to give some extra oomph. Quite warming, especially for a golden ale.
