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.

11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue. Lots of creamy off-white head that lasts. Aroma of grain, orange peel, grass, spices and underlying alcohol. As it starts to warm a lot of funky notes start emerging. Ctirus, bitter hops, mild sweetness and definite warm booze, not a weak one. A great use of hops in this Belgian; good bitterness, but not overwhelming. I’ll never get bored with this beer!

A nice surprise. I was expecting much less than what this glass of ale had in store. Nice color...laces nicely. Pleasant flavor. High ABV isn’t detectable. No bitter. A fine glass of ale.

nybol (1120) - DENMARK - APR 10, 2016
Mange procenter uden at den virker spritet. Den mangler måske lidt sødme for at opveje styrken.

Bouteille 33 cl - Belle mousse blanche persistante, couleur ambrée. Odeur : très forte d’alcool, vanille et banane. Goût : banane même si l’alcool très prononcée. Amertume persistante en bouche. Final long et basé sur l’alcool qu’on sent très fortement

Clear copper, small off-white foam head. Strong sweet barley aroma and taste. Low bitterness, bit too sweet. Strong indeed. (Velp 201604)
