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.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2012 Bottled. A golden beer with a massive long lasting thick white head, and heavy lacing. The asoma is spicy and herbal, and definitely alcoholic. The taste is also spicy and thick with the warming alcohol in abundance. A tasty supping beer.Score 3.9
Subsequent ratings scored 3.2 and 4.3. Average becomes 3.8

JoeMcPhee (8962) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2004
Cloudy orange-amber beer with a huge white head. Aroma shows yeastiness, some plums, apple, orange, and pineapple aroma along with a generous amount of black pepper, clove, cinnamon, and other spices. Flavour is similar, with fruits, spices and a nice citrus bite all finished off by a slightly bitter finish. Well balanced.

bitter (1136) - Henderson, Nevada, USA - JUN 15, 2004
bottled: ive had this several times but refreshed my memory yesterday....always thought it was from somwhere else due to the label??? this a typical belgian strong spicy citrus notes bananas in the nose....mouth is mostly the same some bubblegum warmth and sweets of alcohol. good for a try but not for drinking.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Spicy sweet lemony alcohol aroma rises from the enormous white head. Nicely balanced and fairly easy to drink, the spices do not overwhelm the malt character and sweet fruit goodness. Enjoyable but be careful, one of these can put you off kilter a bit.

Whats with the dude on the label....he looks more like an "ass piraat", than just a "piraat". Anyways, one of the most ridiculous heads Ive ever seen....this beer gives that heather from the ideepthroat.com website a run for her money when it comes to giving head. Aroma is very spicey, ginger, cinnamon. Flavor followed suit, sweet hoppy finish, crisp, not bad.

AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Bottle. HUGE freakin’ head, even on careful pouring. Not much of an aroma, just kind of chill and mellow. A little bit of bit in the slightly hoppy, effervescent, and consistent flavor. A little bit of spicy fruit, subtle, nice. Shockingly easy to drink for 10.5% ABV. Not challenging but still good.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAY 26, 2004
A rather sweet, moderately spicy and noticeably alcoholic (10.5%) Belgian golden ale with a mild bitterness lurking behind the standard Belgian flavor; A metallic flavor puts a slight damper on an otherwise solid beer; Only complaint with the flavor is that it seems to be overbalanced toward the sweet end and thus a bit one-dimensional; The nose is sweet and lightly spicy; Apricot in color; The rise-and-fall circulation of the sediment puts on a magnificent display; Pours with an absolutely huge white head with superb retention and lacing

11.12 oz bottle. Intensely malty nose, with lots of sugary and citrus fruits, yeast and bubble gum. Flavor much similar to nose, lots of sweet candi sugar, cotton candy, waffle cones, lemon, sweet orange, light vanilla and hints of banana and yeast. Maybe some clove in there as well. Warming, but the alcohol isnt out of place for being so high. Good fiery orange color with a big white head. Quite good, very sweet, would probably age fairly well. Not anything overly adventurous here, but quite solid.
