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.

Barwa miedziana, piwo lekko zmętnione. Piana obfita, ale raczej nietrwała. Widać lacing. Bardzo bogaty aromat: z butelki raczej estrowy, przede wszystkim śliwka, a także piernik oraz aromaty belgijskich drożdży. Ze szklanki przede wszystkim ciemne, słodkie słody, troszkę alkoholu, oprócz owoce - banan, jabłko. Piwo mocno nagazowane. Raczej pełne. Wyraźnie czuć rozgrzewający i moim zdaniem przyjemny alkohol. Goryczka słaba, ale występuje. W smaku przede wszystkim słodkie, owocowe. Przy finiszu raczej wytrawne.

TizzleJizzle (716) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2015
Sampled from a bottle at the Big Texas Beer Fest. Poured a hazy golden with a mammoth white head and tons of lacing. Taste of tropical fruit, sweet caramel malts, Belgian yeast, with a boozy finish. Highly active fizzy carbonation with a medium body.

kacyper (453) - Łęczna, POLAND - APR 5, 2015
500 ml, butelka. Aromaty typowe dla belgii, ciastka, słody, karme alkohol. Ale dosyć przyjemne. W smaku niesamowite wysycenie, aż szczypie.

EvanFriend (347) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2015
A little bit of bubblegum flavor, but nowhere near enough to ruin it. Mostly spicy Belgian notes. Not the best ever, but certainly fun to drink.

ROSE1962 (25) - POLAND - MAR 30, 2015
Aromat mocno przyprawowy, alkoholowy, czuć gruszki i owoce. Barwa ciemnozłotwa, opalizujące. Piana biała grubopęcherzykowata i szybko opada. W smaku ciężkie, czuć alkohol, czyć wspomniane owoce.

330ml bottle. Pours dark orange with a big white head that lasts for a very long time. Aroma is banana, cinnamon and spices. Taste is fruity, spicy and yeasty. Great strong beer.
