Day 618: Piraat Triple Hop

Some days I wish this blog wrote itself. But after 618 consecutive days, I'm too stubborn to let it fall by the wayside.
I promise that there's beer beneath that giant white head! It is the Piraat Triple Hop from Brouwerij Van Steenberge.  It poured with a fantastically full white head over a copper color ale. Interesting fact about Belgian beer: They tend to max out their hop profile right around the same place that many American beers start. That's not a disparaging comment in the least as I thoroughly enjoyed the Piraat Triple Hop.

True to its name, the aroma was strong on hops. The flavor was amazingly smooth with a good hop bite at the finish. Another interesting tidbit: The fine folks at Van Steenberge aren't happy with this name so if it makes its way to the U.S., it will most likely be under a new name!
