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 a clear gold colour with a big frothy head. Citrus and spicy malt aroma. Surprisingly, even with the 10,5% this beer is smooth and doesn’t have a big alcohol taste. Spicy malt with some hop bitterness. mmmmm

When did they start growing pinapple in Belgium? Smooth and a nice crispnes that does not allow the sweetness to overwhelm.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 33cl BottleClear golden, slight film on top. Voluptouos body on this ale! Silky smooth, soft and curvy. Peppery yeasty aroma with a hint of lemon. Spicy fruity flavor, yeast flavors and a slight bitter finish. Overall one classy Belgian!.Update 7/05, 750ml Corked Sweeter than I originally experienced. Musty, lemon zest in aroma. Weaker body, sweeter flavor. I have to downgrade on this sample.

Pours to a large head. Smells of alcohol and citurs. Rather foamy mouthfeel, but a very plesent finish with tastes of alcohol. Very good!

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.

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.

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.

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.
