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.

Copper-amber colour, with a big white head that leaves great ring and lace. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, dark fruits, herbs, spices, mint, coriander, cardamom, pine. Almost full body, thick palate. TAste of chocolate, dark fruits, cardamom, caramel, spices. This is a great one.

burgundydrinker (7) - - JUN 4, 2015 does not count
Bouteille de 33 cl dans son verre attitré. Belle couleur ambrée avec un énorme col de mousse blanche et de très nombreuses bulles. Un nez sur les fruits jaunes, les confiseries (caramel, bubblegum) la levure et des notes de malt grillé. La bouche confirme le nez, avec une présence de l’alcool importante et une forte carbonation. L’alcool est un peu trop présent en fin de bouche, mais c’est une bière des plus honnête. Pas la meilleure de sa catégorie, mais loin d’être la dernière. Plaisante après une rude journée!

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear copper/golden with a pretty big white head and an aroma of grass, herbs, caramel, roasted malts, overripe fruits, chocolate, alcohol and raisins. The taste is heavily sweet with some herbal and bitter complexities. Far better than I thought it would be!

A bit dark, but not too dark. Strong hoppy taste, bitter - sour. Strong in percentage.

L: -pours a hazy amber with a big white head -low-medium carbonation visible S: -caramel,toffee,banana,coriander,gras the nose plus moderate hoppiness and a faint sour note F: -typical high belgian carbonation -like other Van Steenberge Beers very boozy -full body O: without the booziness this would be close to perfect

Too much alcohol taste obscuring the flavor. Not sure if this beer is always a disappointment, or I had a bad bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

soltys (73) - POLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Mocny aromat z mocnym akcentem estrów jak i alkoholu. Zdecydowania za wysokie nasycenie - łeb urywa. W smaku czuć moc słodów ale i ziemistość. Alkohol przykryty ale wyczuwalny. Goryczka OK
