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.

Golden yellow, huge beige foam. Yeasty, sour citrus on the nose. Taste is sour but not as sour as I expected. Some notes of mild and sweet citrus. Quite nice mouth feel. Softness fills your mouth but isn’t very thick. Very drinkable and nice. Medium carbonation.

Olfato de álcool intenso. Espuma abundante mas que se desfaz rápido. Bastante licorosa. Paladar de abóbora, amadeirado. Aftertaste duradouro

Teran (115) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 12, 2015
Cloudy orange, creamy white head. Strong Belgian aroma, powerful alcohol. Very distinctive taste. Nose is already promising. Molasses and prune, And you have wrong photos for this beer. I am talking about triple hop but not dry hooped ale.

750ml poured into Belgian tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange with no head. Nose is bubblegum, pineapple, sourdough. Flavors of white grapes, oak similar to a chardonnay. Not much in terms of hops, dry on the palate, boozy finish.

Zeer lekker bier. Drinkt vlot weg maar heeft wel een niet alledaagse smaak. Echt een aanrader. Gedronken in het Rilix-tankstation in Puerto Plata

Brandon1989 (404) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a hazy orange/amber color with a medium creamy white head that left lots of lacing. The aroma is bready, alcohol, musky hops and malts. The taste is prickly, with sweetness in the malts and some breadiness. There is some fruit flavors as well, possibly some apricot. The alcohol is noticeable, however, hidden pretty well. There is a slight hop kick and bitterness in this beer as well. Overall, a great beer that everyone should try at least once.

Pours a cloudy orange with an off white head. Classic yeast aroma with a sharp bitter taste.

slightly cloudy amber color; spicy, fruity aroma; a great Belgian ale - fruity Belgian yeast with spice notes; fairly bitter; dry, slightly sour fruit finish
