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.

Trappist1 (615) - Diest, - SEP 17, 2013
Amber van kleur, mooie schuimkraag. Neus is kruidig (kruidnagel?). Warme afdronk, heeft een romig, volmondig karakter. Beetje olieachtig. Alcohol domineert serieus in de nasmaak, complex, moeilijk te definiëren. De vraag die ik mij stel is waarom het nog geen winter is.

vickey9 (601) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2015
Orange-amber color with off-white layer of porous foam. Nose with notes of apples, pears, spices, cloves, coriander. Body i full, carbon medium, texture thick. Taste is sweet. Palate dominates by cloves, bubblegum, spiced yeast, toasted bread, apple & pear skin sharpness. A strong Belgian warming stuff. B@H

BitchPls (598) - FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Golden yellow, huge beige foam. Yeasty, sour citrus on the nose. Taste is sour but not as sour as I expected. Some notes of mild and sweet citrus. Quite nice mouth feel. Softness fills your mouth but isn’t very thick. Very drinkable and nice. Medium carbonation.

Tognetta (81) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 14, 2015
Olfato de álcool intenso. Espuma abundante mas que se desfaz rápido. Bastante licorosa. Paladar de abóbora, amadeirado. Aftertaste duradouro

Teran (95) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 12, 2015
Cloudy orange, creamy white head. Strong Belgian aroma, powerful alcohol. Very distinctive taste. Nose is already promising. Molasses and prune, And you have wrong photos for this beer. I am talking about triple hop but not dry hooped ale.

Criz (147) - - FEB 8, 2015
750ml poured into Belgian tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange with no head. Nose is bubblegum, pineapple, sourdough. Flavors of white grapes, oak similar to a chardonnay. Not much in terms of hops, dry on the palate, boozy finish.

Zeer lekker bier. Drinkt vlot weg maar heeft wel een niet alledaagse smaak. Echt een aanrader. Gedronken in het Rilix-tankstation in Puerto Plata
