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.

ulrikolsen (271) - DENMARK - AUG 8, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2016 Bottle. Pours clear golden with lazing white head. Aroma is sweet and has lightmalts with biscuit and caramel yet fruity with ripe apricot and caramel. Taste is light malty with biscuit and bread, yet fruity with winegum-like notes and has a semi-sweet balanced bitterness which makes it easy to drink.

vinivini (1227) - BELARUS - AUG 3, 2016
Cloudy honey yellow. Tall off-white head. Very nice lacing. Sweetish candy in aroma. Lots of Belgian yeast. Fruity. Full bodied. Thick palate. The taste copies the aroma. Boozy but not alcoholic. Light bitterness. Very nice.

#1250. Bottle shared with koleminer20, for the book. Aroma is tropical fruit, yeast, bready, hops, caramel malt, good. Appearance is rust orange, clearish, off white to light tan head. Taste is tropical fruit, bread, yeast, bubblegum, caramel malt, dry. Mouthfeel is dry, medium body, light crisp carbonation, dry bready fruit aftertaste. Overall, not as good as some, but solidly middle of the pack.

330 mL bottle shared with ebone1988 for this stupid book. God damnit. The pour is a coppery gold color, crystal clear, with a pillowy white head that falls leaving some decent lace. The aroma is interesting it’s really bready and malty with a slight tropical fruit and a light slice to it. It’s an interesting blend. I like the bread, yet dislike the spices. The flavor is more malt based. There is a definite lack of spice, which I like. The bready malts are nice, and the bubblegum makes for an interesting blend. The tropical fruitiness is there with a strong caramel makes this a lot better than I thought it would be. The mouth feel is thin and light with a brighter carbonation and a very dry, malty finish. It’s an interesting brew, but not awful.
