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.

Bottle: Hazy peach color with an aroma that is first a very tart citrus, then a sweet apricot. In the mouth, this beer starts with apricot and cream like sweetness. The alcohol is very present. The cream lingers in the finish, which is dominated by spice.

Stevig bier. Aangename smaak, soms iets te bitter. Goede nasmaak, je proeft de alcohol. Fruitsmaak ook merkbaar

BeerRenter76 (831) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
It pours a golden body with plenty of carbonation, a big white head that left heavy lace. Aroma of alcohol was most prevelant with hints of sweet fruits. Flavor was similar with the alcohol dominating the initial and middle flavor with fruit hints finally showing up in the aftertaste. An o.k brew but the alcohol was too overwhelming to rate it higher.

Alcohol covers all other aromas. Bread, herbs, alcohol. Amber, clear body, minimal, white head. Lightly sweet and sour with medium bitterness and some saltyness. Full bodied, oily. Lively carbonation with long finish.

Bitek (439) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 23, 2016
Belgijska owocowość, przyprawy, biszkoptowa słodowość. Treściwe, przyjemna pełnia. Wysokie wysycenie. Alkohol obecny, rozgrzewający. Goryczka niska.

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 (1286) - 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.
