Piraat is a wickedly rich and rounded brew that packs a mighty punch. The powerful glow builds up from inside. Deep golden with a subtle haze. Lots of hops and malt. Mild sweetness. Reminiscent of bread dough, spices and tropical fruits.

750 ml bottle into a trappist glass. Wow, the cork nearly took my damn head off. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a yellow/amber glow. There is a finger of frothy white head and nice lacing. Beautiful beer. Aroma is dough, barnyard yeast, banana, clove, lemons, white pepper, and sharp spices. Taste is bread, clove, banana, lemon, candi sugar, mild grassy hops, and maybe a touch of brown sugar in the end. Mouthfeel is medium to thin and very drinkable. I would guess this beer is 7%, not 10.5. So so awesome. Wow. I love this beer, amazing.

Rich amber/red colour with a thin foamy head that fades rapidly, leaving white thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of spring flowers, apples, oranges and caramel that come through in the taste with honey and burnt sugar backed up with a peppery spice that lasts.

Flanfl (359) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2015
Cloudy amber body, medium white head. Strong belgian yeast aroma, earthy, spicy and fruity. A good amout of bread and alcoholic notes. Flavours of belgian yeast, earthy, spicy and fruity, quite warm. The alcohol is not hidden anymore. Light hoppy notes at the end. The after taste is medium, sweet and fairly dry for such a beer. Medium body and aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b33r (772) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Bright gold color with small bubbly white head and thick lacing. Aroma has huge belgian yeasts, breadiness, and slight alcohol notes. Flavor is very good- dry and bready, earthy, spicy belgian yeasts, light hops- just tons of flavor going on. Slight alcohol tingle, thin mouthfeel, with bitter dry aftertaste. Very good

LordBrew (99) - Ziemnice, POLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Kolor ciemno bursztynowy. Piana wspaniała - gruba, drobna, klei się do szkła. Piękny jabłkowy aromat z wyraźną nutą słodką i lekkim alkoholem. Smak - alkohol doskonale ukryty, początkowo dominuje słodowa słodycz z czasem przechodząca w alkoholowo-goryczkowy finisz. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie. Zdradziecko pijalne, pyszne piwo.
