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.

Everything about it is good. It is nice and fizzy and also has a nice full body. What I didn’t like was the extremelly badly hidden high alcohol content, not very enjoyable, try a different Belgian strong Ale; there is better out there.

This yellow highly alcoholic beer has a strong aroma that reminded me of bananas. Good palate, fizzy, good head,kind of lemony taste. I liked it!

A faint nutty aroma (hazelnuts?), this is a very heady beer with a cloudy yellow appearnace. This is a nice Belgian, smooth with mild spicy tingles, but an excellent hider of its HAC - that is - until it hits you. Wow, that hits though. This and the Gulden Draak were the highlights of a six-pack of Belgians i recently bouth, though the Triple Bornem was also nice.

This is the top of the beer food chain for my liking. Did not score it perfect because it would mean that I no longer need to search for the perfect beer. Overall great color, flavor, aroma, and aftertaste. Plus, a bottle of this at 10% will start or end your night with a little WOW.

A bit hazy golden, firm white head. Sweet hoppy honeyish nose. Very hoppy&alcoholic (brandy) with some licorice and fruity, honey sweetness. Spicey and bitter. Long waming bitter aftertaste.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2005
330 ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with a mostly diminishing frothy and rocky white head. Big citrus aroma - orange, lime, tangerine - plus notes of caramel and alcohol. Citrus flavour gives way to caramel, raisin, and brown sugar with a light grapefruit and alcohol finish. Full bodied, very warming, light alcohol burn.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Pours a clear yellow/golden color with a small white head. Aroma is banana bread. Flavors are marachino cherries, bananas, cinnamon, sugar, apples, wheat bread, and a little alcohol in the finish. Medium bodied and very smooth the whole way down. Very mellow and easy to drink for a 10.5%

Bottle. Primarily a malt and peach pulp aroma with slight alcohol aroma. Light amber color with small lacy head. Sweet fruity flavor - peach, apple, cherry- and yeast with a moderate bitter and alcohol burn finish. Smooth with alcohol content staying fairly well hidden.
