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.

On draft at Sharp Edge Brasserie. Poured hazy gold with white head. Flavor of sweet malt, candi sugar. Finished with a touch of citrus and pine. Just a touch boozy.

Bottle from the Real Ale Store, Newark. Hazy pale Amber colour with a thin but lasting off white head. Aroma is rich fruity, and warm bread. The taste mainly sweet with a big alcohol finish.

Piraat is an excellent blond beer from Van Steenberge, Belgium. Really strong taste, but a nice aroma comes to it.

Lilja (2241) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2015
Flaska från Saveur Bieré. Smak och doft av aprikos, karamell, humle, malt, örter med toner av honung och bröd. Lagom sötma, fruktig och frisk, kraftfull med balans mellan smakerna och fin beska.

Braudog (6040) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle. Deep and murky, with a big frothy head and a bit of sediment. This has a wild and sweet aroma and drinks with a museum-like Belgian profile. A bit of wild, a bit of funk, a lot of sugar and a lot of alcohol ... all with robust flavor profiles and classical body. I love it. (#6030, 9/10/2015)

KW92 (666) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 7, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa (mydlana), brzydka.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Estrowy (dojrzałe jabłka, czarne winogrona deserowe). W tle fenole (przyprawy korzenne), słody oraz minimalnie alkohol.
SMAK: Słodowe, lekko przyprawowe. Posmak subletnie owocowy. Goryczka średnia w kierunku niskiej, krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Poprawny. Alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty,a to ważne przy bagatela ok. 10%. Mimo wszystko liczyłem na coś więcej...

Doftar av malt och maltsötma. Småsöt i smaken och en del alkoholtoner. Viss beska framträder i eftersmaken.

Pours a nice dark amber with a good two finger head that rise’s above the rim but doesn’t run down the side. Slight metallic taste up front but doesn’t linger. Strong flavors not bitter easy to drink.

33 cl bottle at home from Mr Cuvelier’s clearance section! Warm day so chilled for a bit. Pours a nice amber orange colour with a white head. As is fairly typical for this strength of ale, the aroma is of yeast, burnt sugar and candied fruit (orange peel, lemon zest?). Taste is quite sweet, then nicely bitter. Taste: more dried fruit, Madeira wine and rich cake flavours, maybe some spice (cinnamon apple?). For a hefty beer, not too sticky on the palate. Overall - I enjoyed this beer. Complex and rich, would be worth a re-visit.
