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.

Bottle from the Real Ale Store, Newark. Hazy pale Amber colour with a thin but lasting off white head. Aroma is rich fruity, and warm bread. The taste mainly sweet with a big alcohol finish.

Piraat is an excellent blond beer from Van Steenberge, Belgium. Really strong taste, but a nice aroma comes to it.

Lilja (2242) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2015
Flaska frĺn Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av aprikos, karamell, humle, malt, örter med toner av honung och bröd. Lagom sötma, fruktig och frisk, kraftfull med balans mellan smakerna och fin beska.

Braudog (6041) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Deep and murky, with a big frothy head and a bit of sediment. This has a wild and sweet aroma and drinks with a museum-like Belgian profile. A bit of wild, a bit of funk, a lot of sugar and a lot of alcohol ... all with robust flavor profiles and classical body. I love it. (#6030, 9/10/2015)

KW92 (675) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 7, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa (mydlana), brzydka.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Estrowy (dojrzałe jabłka, czarne winogrona deserowe). W tle fenole (przyprawy korzenne), słody oraz minimalnie alkohol.
SMAK: Słodowe, lekko przyprawowe. Posmak subletnie owocowy. Goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Poprawny. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty,a to ważne przy bagatela ok. 10%. Mimo wszystko liczyłem na coś więcej...

Doftar av malt och maltsötma. Smĺsöt i smaken och en del alkoholtoner. Viss beska framträder i eftersmaken.

Pours a nice dark amber with a good two finger head that rise’s above the rim but doesn’t run down the side. Slight metallic taste up front but doesn’t linger. Strong flavors not bitter easy to drink.
