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.

Mmmmm....well, I didnt like this one that much. It has a weird rosty flavor that didnt let me enjoy it. Maybe was a bad one? I will have to try it again.

Pours hazy light copper with lots of carbonation and a good sized cream colored head. Very fruity aroma - nectar and citrus combo. There is also some spice and Belgium yeastiness. Full body with lots of soft carbonation. There is an alcohol warmth, but it is not overpowering. The initial tste has a load of earthy yeast and light spice. The alcohol is definitely here, but it is creamy and tolerable. The finish has strong light fruits (white grape, peach and such) and some spicy hops. A nice beer.

33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy pale amber colour with a little white head. Soft aroma of yeast, malt and some sweetness to. Also sweet malty flavour with notes of yeast and little alcohol at the end.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2006
pretty decent. Hazy light orange with a large, long lasting thick head. Aroma is heavy spices, some apples, pears, tart citrus, and peppery. Taste is the same with a dry lightly tart finish. nice alcohol warm in the finish also.

10,5 % with the 9% label instead of the one shown in the picture?. Believe that should be corrected. Unclear golden with quick disappearing white head. Aroma of strong spices/yeast/fruit & alcohol. Taste of sweet malts. Warmth from alcohol. Filling smooth body with a medium live carbonation. Pleasant lasting finish. Ok from van steenberge.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2006
Bottle. The aroma on this one had something I couldnt quite put my finger on.. its herbal in a hoppy kind of way which (sadly) reminds me of glue. Quite sweet.

Smells sweet, yeasty and hoppy. Murky yellow body with very thick off-white head. One thing I do like about this one as opposed to some Belgians is how the head does not overflow quite as easily as many. Tons of lacing, typical of a Belgian... Sweet - citrus and pine definitely present. Alcohol noticeable but not overpowering like some beers of this high an abv or even lower. Very good. Flavorful, but smooth and mild. Pretty good. Similar to La Fin Du Monde, but less earthy and less overwealming. Not sure Id pay 11$ per bottle all the time, but not bad, definitely worth the try.

via trade with OhioDad - Pours a golden color with a nice size white head. Light lacing. Has a strong fruity (mainly banana) aroma. Flavor is very fruity sweet. A light fizzy mouthfeel. Medium body. A decent beer, just a little too fruity for me (as are most Belgium beers). Thanks Scott.
