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.

Biscuits, bubble gum, citrus and Belgian yeast in the aroma. Flavor starts sweet with a little orange, with some grassy hops, spice, and alcohol in the finish. Not on a par with the best Belgian strong ales (Duvel, etc), but still very good.

A mighty one with a very aromatic taste, a firm but definite palate and the unconcealed strength.

Tastes a bit like Gulden Draak: less sweet and caramel-like, but more herbs and beer.

This is a wonderfull beer. Unbeliaveble flovour for a little bottle.. Bit this is the magic of beer. The aroma is hard, long and sweety: i fan smell i little Apple, a bread, a bitter and a vanilla. Fruit with spirit... On the tongue the beer is a little bitter bar hot. In the mouth, the party started with a hard carbonation and little sweatness. At the end, the beer became bitter at the right time. I Love this beer.

Pours a golden amber color with a thick white head. Fruit, yeast, malt, spice and floral aroma. Apple, pear, peach, malt, clove, yeast, spice and floral flavors. Medium light body and lots of carbonation. Sweet with a fruit and spice finish and a hint of alcohol.

Not into this style. The balance is too alcoholic for me. The color pours clear and apricot, but the palate is too sickly alcohol for me. Overall, I dont think so.

Hrc_Cro (58) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 30, 2014
0.33l bottle. Amber color with white foam. Aroma of spices and peach with alcohol present, maybe too much. Medium to full body with dry finish that leaves alcohol taste( after a while it becomes strikingly unpleasant). Would be better if alcohol was better hidden. Well, this is a beer for pirates, guess im too soft for it :)

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2014 Tap at Broders Terzo Vino Wine Bar in south Minneapolis. Nice looking orange pour in a Piraat tulip. Bread and dates on the nose. A little boozy but good.
