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.

Very nicely masked, not too weak-not too strong alcahol taste, brilliant stuff. Nice Golden colour, medium head, thin lacing, Yeasty and a little spicy with a hint of Vanilla. Nice.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 17, 2004
golden duvel colour. Aroma is very yeasty and quite splendid with some fruit tones. Taste was nothing like I would have imagined, more citrus then I would have guessed, smooth yeasty taste with a spicy aftertaste that bites ... har har har

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 16, 2004
Deep golden color. Aroma like the applehouse with yeast and a whiff (or two, or three) of the alcohol. First taste is tart but gives way to sweet fruit and, of course, alcohol. Has legs and lace. i love it.

shotgun1431 (128) - franklin furnace, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2004
Very good brew! It pours a thick golden color with a white head. Good carbonation. The aroma is litely fruity and sweet. The initial taste is nice but it has a bit of a strong aftertaste.

yeasty, malt vanilla aroma, light amber gold color, large head, malt banana fruit taste, alcohol becomes evident in aftertaste.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2004
Piraat on draught is a wonderul experience. Poured in a fluted goblet with a medium head. The color is a rich ruby to deep amber. Hops pour from the glass with an intriguing floral bouquet. The flavor is mostly hops with a great balance of caramel malt. Slightly sweet malt flavor balance with dry floral hop flavor mask the definate presence of alcohol.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 8, 2004
Hazy golden color, huge, white and pillowy head. Yeasty, fruity and alcoholic aroma. Sweet, fruity, slightly alcoholic flavor with yeast and orange-peel. Smooth, medium-carbonated mouthfeel. Hides the ABV quite well.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 2, 2004
UPDATED: APR 22, 2004 Definitely a bready, yet interesting belgian golden pour (resembling a trippel). Generic in appearance, but a nice spicy flavor that hides the alcohol extemely well. Hops really only appear at the end. I missed the sweetness that others mention. Only the poor quality of my poker play could attest to the 10.5 ABV.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2004
Good golden glassy color, and a thin head to it. Aroma isnt too tell-tale compared to the flavor, which is where its at. Good crispness to it, but still holds to a good sweentess and complexity.

heemer77 (5158) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 30, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 Bottled. Hazy yellow, like a wit bier. Large, white head and a little carbonation. Sweet, floral aroma. The taste is lacking with lots of corn flake like sweetness. Flavor also has tangerine and malt. Way too sweet. I wouldn’t want more than one.
