WILK Friday BeerBuzz–2 Mar 2012 Brouwerij Van Steenberge Piraat

WILKFridayBeerbuzz4We’ve had an amazing time on the Friday BeerBuzz and we have literally had guests join us for the last 27 SHOWS!!  So it was nice today to simply sit down with the Friday BeerBuzz team and enjoy a great beer. 

Today I chose a beer that only recently hit our area.  It was originally a draft-only release, and gradually we’ve seen more and more bottles reach our shores….which is very good news.  Our beer today was Brouwerij Van Steenberge Piraat.  In case your missed the reference on the label above, Piraat is Dutch for “Pirate” and after you try this one it may just steal your beer-booty.

Piraat is a Belgian/Flemish Style IPA, but if you’re expecting a traditional British or West-Coast style IPA, you’ll be surprised…but surprised in a good way.  This is a Belgian/Flemish style IPA which means there is significant hop presence, but the Belgian yeast imparts that bready/yeasty flavor we’re more accustomed to tasting in a Saison.  Piraat comes to us from Brouwerij Van Steenberge in Belgium, and it is a BIG 10.5% ABV, so there is a lot of boozy/alcohol flavor but I’d describe it more as “warming.”  Try this one for yourself…it’s readily available at Krugel’s Georgetown Deli & Beer and affordable in 4-Packs too.

Thank you to Mrs. BeerBuzz,

Nancy, John, & Joe for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
