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: 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.

Bottled, at the Dovetail, London.
Rich golden coloured body with medium to large Belgian style white vale. Sweet floral aroma, which is soft and smooth. The flavour and palate follow suit. The beer is rich complex and well balanced. I very nice rate. Georgie’s birthday, with the girls.

desurfer (1276) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Hazy orange body, small white head. Alcoholic, malty, bready aroma. Alcohol really comes through in the flavor, somewhat dominating it. Dry, sweet finish. I take off a few points for the pervasiveness of the alcohol flavor.

jde123 (773) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2004
Great beer! Swirls into the glass, very cloudy orange body topped by a frothy, tall white head of tightly packed bubbles, beautiful. Sweetly persuasive, urging you to drink increasingly large amounts until you can stand no more, but it still comes on with relentless fury. Despite this, it remains a fantastic beer that I enjoy more each time.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Cloudy golden amber color with a large fluffy white head. Very musty clove and sugar aroma. Spicy clove, malt, lemon, alcohol and musty flavors. Very tingly feel, with a somewhat dry finish.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Golden in color with a large dense bubbled white head. Aroma is of yeast,alcohol,bugspray,sweet malt,fruit and spice.Flavor is consistant with the aroma.Way too much alcohol,not balanced, would be much better if it were 7-8% ABV.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Hazy bright orange with a huge rocky white head. Spicy aroma, with hints of light fruits that are masked by the alcohol. Medium bodied, with a sweet ending. This beer would be better with a little less alcohol.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - MAR 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2006 Pours cloudy yellow in color with a fluffy white head. Too much for the style. Fruity aroma. Apples and pears. Tart tasting. Very strong. Flavor is smooth with a sharp finish.

I had the at the t'Brugs Beertje in Bruges about 7 years ago. Orangeish color with the big head you expect. Flavor is fruity and smooth with a warming aftertaste (alcohol). I wish I could find a bottle over here for a re-rate. Good as far as I can remember.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Pours clour yellow orange with a tan fluffy head. Fruity alcohol aroma with notes of raisin, peach, banana, and God knows what. Flavor is smooth with a sharp finish, maybe of hops or like something. Candi sugar evident. A little much.
