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.

Sample from bottle at 2012 Columbia World Beer Festival. Hazy gold. Interesting combination from this beer, hoppy up from before trailing into a doughy, bready, finish. Unusual but quite delicious.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is quite mild with some malt, fruitiness, and spice. Taste is rather intense, with plenty of malt, fruit, bread, spice, and Belgian yeast. Warming finish.

darbeer75 (561) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Aroma: lightly sweet and spicy; Appearance: very hazy amber pour with fluffy white head that sticks around; Taste: much more distinctive than aroma; very sweet to start, lots of spice in the middle, with malty finish; Palate: medium body with long, sweet finish; Overall: a little too sweet for me, but interesting. Would drink again if available.

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

BeerRenter76 (834) - 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.
