COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. A fresh and fruity aroma. The clear orange beer has a medium white head. A sweet taste, alcohol, citrus. Medium carbonated.

Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Nice beer. Pours a clear golden. Smooth and slight bitterness. Slightly boozy, but overall, a very nice beer.

HomerBeerOdysy (3) - Springfield, - JUL 20, 2014 does not count
APPEARANCE - Pours coppery red, with a huge, five-finger beige head that lasts a long time. It leaves a floaty yeast lump up till the last sip. SMELL/AROMA - Herbaceous, sweet, a little piney. TASTE - Sweet, herbaceous, piney. Definitely not bitter as advertised. ABV only a bit hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Lots of carbonation, light, not syrupy. OVERALL - A bit boozy, but a nice beer, sippable, not quaffable. Advertised as bitter, but it’s not at all bitter IMHO.

LetsGoState (580) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Appearance is large white head and deep amber. Aroma is sweet. Taste is a very nice blend of sweet malts, spices, and a strong alcohol undertone. Overall a good Belgian.

Pours a hazy golden with a substantial foamy head. Nose is Belgian yeast, bready, spicy yeast, a bit of booze. Taste is Belgian yeast, doughy, bready, sweet and some dryness, some fruity esters, spicy, lively carbonation. Overall I really like this, it's well balanced and complex. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 330 ml at Tituš, Zagreb. Pours yellow with white head. Malty and yeasty aroma and taste. Caramel and bit spicy. Presence of alcohol not that hidden. Not a favourite of mine.
