PIRAAT BEER: Piraat is a Belgian Triple Ale. The beer was created many centuries ago to accompany sailors setting out on long voyages. In the 17th and 18th centuries the captains needed a beer with high food value that could be kept fresh for an extended period of time. Piraat, due to its high ABV (10.5 percent) and second fermentation, was the perfect type of brew for these voyages. A pint a day was the ration passed down by the captain to his crew. Piraat has a well-rounded body and a wickedly rich flavor. The powerful glow builds from the inside with a deep golden hue and soft haze. With aggressive amounts of hops and malts, a mild sweetness is coupled with colorful aromas, fresh bread, spices and tropical fruits for a complex taste. Drink with caution!
