Brouwerij Van Steenberge Piraat Belgian Ale

Piraat Belgian Ale
10.5% ABV

A nice, puffy white head persists with lively carbonation below the surface. The foam is not excessive, as is often the case with Belgian beers. The nose showcases the distinctive Belgian yeast with a slight pruney character in the background. The head retention and the bubbly mouthfeel are remarkable. Alcoholic heat and dried apricots dominate the palate without being overwhelming. This is a big, intense beer—perhaps too big for most foods, which makes it a nice nightcap.
