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.

Another beautiful looking Belgian, this pours an orange-gold with lasting, clingy, lacing, finger of dense white froth. Aroma is yeasty, full of esters and slight sweetness. Flavor is different with some spice and bitter from the hops finishing this clean and dry.

Rich amber/red colour with a thin foamy head that fades rapidly, leaving white thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of spring flowers, apples, oranges and caramel that come through in the taste with honey and burnt sugar backed up with a peppery spice that lasts.

Flanfl (547) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2015
Cloudy amber body, medium white head. Strong belgian yeast aroma, earthy, spicy and fruity. A good amout of bread and alcoholic notes. Flavours of belgian yeast, earthy, spicy and fruity, quite warm. The alcohol is not hidden anymore. Light hoppy notes at the end. The after taste is medium, sweet and fairly dry for such a beer. Medium body and aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b33r (824) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Bright gold color with small bubbly white head and thick lacing. Aroma has huge belgian yeasts, breadiness, and slight alcohol notes. Flavor is very good- dry and bready, earthy, spicy belgian yeasts, light hops- just tons of flavor going on. Slight alcohol tingle, thin mouthfeel, with bitter dry aftertaste. Very good

LordBrew (176) - Ziemnice, POLAND - OCT 17, 2015
Kolor ciemno bursztynowy. Piana wspaniała - gruba, drobna, klei się do szkła. Piękny jabłkowy aromat z wyraźną nutą słodką i lekkim alkoholem. Smak - alkohol doskonale ukryty, początkowo dominuje słodowa słodycz z czasem przechodząca w alkoholowo-goryczkowy finisz. Wysycenie bardzo wysokie. Zdradziecko pijalne, pyszne piwo.
