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.

Pours dark yellow with good head that lasts a couple of minutes. Yeast/citrus/ and a alcohol aroma. Initial malt taste fades to some kind of fruit. Frothy mouthfeel. Has a hop bite at finish with some spice and a dry alcohol aftertaste.

IJT (40) - Carterton, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
A nice strong Belgium ale. The beer is golden orange in colour, with a massive blossoming head. The nose is complex, spicy, hoppy, and something else I could quite put a finger on. The same carries through the palate, and has a thick malty texture, and a dry hop character, along with a bit of bitterness. Other notes also made me think winey, and maybe a bit of oak (?). Overall nice enough, but nothing incredible.

SDalkoholic (2214) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 26, 2004
Huge maximized head with lace running all down the glass. I thought there soem sediment floating around but nope, it was just the bubbles. Aroma is strong and musky with fruits. Funky flavor of pear,spicey yeast and strong malts. Not used to these belgians but im beginning to appreciate them.

Knoxville (14) - Terrassa, SPAIN - NOV 24, 2004
Very strong beer: a lot of alcohol, but has not a overpowered taste. Sweet flavor, orange colour with a thick white crown. Nice.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a glowing gold with thick off-white head. Smell is citrusy and spicy. Malty taste with a slight hoppiness at the end. Sweet and spicy. High ABV isn’t TOO apparent in taste.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2004
Sweet, complex and a heavy but not overpowering taste. Beautiful flowery aroma with a sweet taste that also has room for some nice bitterness. Great aftertaste that release some of the heavy alcohol punch. Where can I get a 24 of this beauty?

Pailhead (5443) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2004
Bottle: Aroma is malt, citrus, some sourness and light bitterness. Has some hefeweizen aroma characteristics. Pours a hazy orangish-yellow with a small white head. Decent lacing. Light initial malt with some citrus. Sour in the middle and finishes very sweet. Light bitterness is covered up by the sourness and sweetness. Just a little too sweet for me.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Clear spritzy golden strong ale. Lots of pungent yeasty aromas with more hoppiness than most belgian strong ales. Flavor is sweet malt with lots of spiciness from the yeast and a great lingering bitterness in the backgorund. A little harsh towards the end, but overall a very interesting beer.

330ml brown bottle. Hazy gold, topped with a beautiful dense creamy white head. Nice lacing. Spicy aroma with yeast and alcohol, also citrus. Yeast, malt and alcohol flavours, lingering bitter finish and alcohol warming. Full body.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2004 Slightly hazy golden amber color with a medium white head. Aroma is yeast, spice and fruit. Tangy sweet start with tropical fruit and some spice finishing with a tart dry orangey flavor. 10.5% ABV warms the face and tummy.
