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.

tcruicks (282) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bright yellow, a good amount of carbonation, big white head. A fruity aroma, mostly apples and some sourness. These fruits are more subtle in the flavor, instead a whole lot of alcohol, hops, sweetness, spice.

aracauna (3495) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Cloudy orange with a large, off-white head. Yeasty clove and cotton candy in the aroma. The candy sweetness of the flavor detracts from the rest of the beer.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Pours rich and cheddary, with a nice head and beautiful lattice work. Aroma is a hint of sage, followed by bread and citrus. Flavor is a sweet grapefruit with cooking spices and a touch of sweet bread. Palate is thick and chewy. Great Belgian.

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle. Poured a golden color with a very big nice white head. While the head is dissapating it leaves a nice lacing along the inside of the glass. Aroma is spicy and sweet. Taste is fruits. Very smooth taste down the throat. A sweet malt taste to end. A decent Belgian Strong Ale.

505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 9, 2006
Aroma was sweet, yeasty, not all that great. Golden pour, nice white head, nice lacing. Sweet, malty, prune flavor, but medicinal too. Medium body. Decent beer, but not all that drinkable.

Habanero (3951) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 7, 2006
Bottled - Poured a cloudy, deep golden that had a large white head. Aroma of yeast, alcohol, caramel and hops. Had a nice taste of melting yeast, hops, caramel and alcohol. Crisp finish with bitterness and alcohol.

thebeertourist (5179) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2006
Bottle at The Dovetail, London. Clear amber with a huge white head that does not seem to reduce in size at all. Great saaz hop aroma blending with coriander and spicy yeastiness. Sweet caramel flavours meet spicy hops and yeast to make a well-balanced beer with a dryish finish. Very fizzy. One of Van Steenberge’s best, no doubt.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Golden color wth tiny little particals floating around. Smell of fruit, malt and yeasty. Tastes like banana nut bread. Taste of more fruit and alcohol. Dry bitter at the end.

Aurelius (5030) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2006 Smells like glue. Phenolic bandaids and bubblegum. Yuk. Yuk. Cereal, popcorn, some smokey wheat flavor. Boozy. Reminds me of putty or dough. Ginger Man, NYC, Segal trip.
