Piraat, 10.5% ABV import. Tastes good, tastes like a triple. You do, however, get shorted out of .8oz so there's that.

fancy glass
Hand-crafted, frosted, original design and the like--I can tell an expensive glass when I see one.
My mom used to use dough from Pillsbury rolls out of the cardboard tube (the round doughs) and cut out the center with a pop bottle top and deep fry them. Then they were dipped in Hershey's syrup on half. I'm guessing you have a more detailed recipe.

Interesting afternoon. After the NA, poured the BCBS Cherry Wood, took a pic then my hand me down phone crashed and burned later. So got this ancient phone rolling. Anyway, not intended but here is the other variant I got. Love the cherry wood! Get the coconut in this but somehow not my favorite. Someone said Piraat...

These are baked, not fried. They’re a lot lighter than fried ones.

You were my insperation! Had Piraat many many moons ago.

Crazy! This Non-enzymatic brewing ended in a couple days. Just sampled. 2.5% abv. I get some esters since it was fermented warm. Excited to be honest!!

Quite the coincidence. My wife's uncle brought that over on Thanksgiving. I wasn't familiar with it and then, POW, I see your glass. I only noticed it today. Mostly, I give away beer that comes into the house. Anyway, I Googled and I think "Piraat" means "Pirate."
Kind of funny. I really am going to ask him where he got that beer because it was top-notch.

I can get it local any big box alcohol store...Specs, Total Wine, Bev Mo. If you like that style, try Victory Golden Monkey.

My HB Weissbier on the right, Ayinger Hefe on the left. Mine tastes more like a Hefe and the Ayinger tastes more like a Weissbier. Go figure.

I used Munich Classic, which is considered a “proper” Hefe yeast, and fermented at the low end of the recommended range, as I prefer the spicier phenol flavors to the fruitier ester flavors. I taste a pretty good balance between the clove and banana in my beer, the Ayinger tastes more neutral, a bit of banana in the finish but not much clove. Whatever. They both taste pretty good, if different.

Mostly non alcoholic beers right now. I had a non alcohol related incident last week and except for Thanksgiving day I'm exploring the world of non alcoholic beers. They have come a very long way in the past few years

Yessir they have! Cool thing is you can have then shipped to the house. So far Athletic and Two Roots are my favorite breweries. Speaking of...8mile completed, tire sledging completed, time for chicken before putting another Low ABV non-enzymatic mash on the burner. This will be a Cherry Belgian. Digging this late fall weather! +15F above average
