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.

08-11-12 Bouteille: Belle couleur cuivrée avec des reflets dorée, limpide et mousse abondante laissant ungros volcan de mousse beige pâle (dans un verre duvel. Petites bulles vive au centre. Arômes asser funky de cuir, de houblon et de malt qui ne m’inspire pas nécessairement. Légèrement sucré, avec une petite amertume, une note surette en arriere bouche. Asser bien balancée. corps léger-moyen avec une texture plutot croutillante avec un petit veloutée. Moyenne carbonisation et finale légèrement astringente sur des notes d’amertume et de fruits.

Deep amber color, big staying white head. Full body, soft to average carbonation. Aroma of overripe fruits, malts, yeast. Medium to heavily sweet and sugary taste and alcohol warmth. Not bad, but not my cup of tea.

HomerBeerOdysy (3) - Springfield, - JUL 20, 2014 does not count
APPEARANCE - Pours coppery red, with a huge, five-finger beige head that lasts a long time. It leaves a floaty yeast lump up till the last sip. SMELL/AROMA - Herbaceous, sweet, a little piney. TASTE - Sweet, herbaceous, piney. Definitely not bitter as advertised. ABV only a bit hidden. MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Lots of carbonation, light, not syrupy. OVERALL - A bit boozy, but a nice beer, sippable, not quaffable. Advertised as bitter, but it’s not at all bitter IMHO.

LetsGoState (580) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Appearance is large white head and deep amber. Aroma is sweet. Taste is a very nice blend of sweet malts, spices, and a strong alcohol undertone. Overall a good Belgian.
