Ingredients; Water, Pilsener malt, pale ale malt, Munich malt, aurora and petra hops, yeast
This strong amber beer was first brewed in 1982 at the request of Van Steenberges Italian importer. 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.

Big bottle in trade with with Lubiere. Moderate but lasting head. Gold colour. Strong farm and cheese scent. Like a lite-flavour Saison with a long sweet musty finish.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with some floaties and a funky huge, rocky white head. Makes some interesting foam formations. The aroma is big as I can smell it from a few feet away. Fruity, spicy, and yeasty. Taste is of some over ripe fruits and some doughy malt. Somewhat syrupy feeling. The alcohol is a little hot.

daniel0017 (441) - Yukon, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
A most impressive brew! Pours a light hazy golden color with great effervescence. Head was creamy white and left generous amounts of lacing on glass. Flavor of creamy butterscotch, malted barley and roasted hops. High alcohol content, but conceals it well. Hints of scotch whiskey, oak and smoke as the beverage warms. Palate is rich with a sweet finish. My expectations were low and this beer turned out to be well above them.

ogivlado (7592) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottled(330ml). Deep golden/orange coloured, huge white head, fruity and slight alcoholic nose. Malty and slight sweet aroma with nice fruity and spicy notes. Nice warming alcohol and spicy finish. Despite high ABV very enjoyable and tasty beer.

Holdwine (1206) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 28, 2006
This is the way to go 10.5! Certainly spicy with piney and varied fruit notes. Explodes on your tongue with more fruit, vanilla, yeast and an appealing alcohol fire (as opposed to burn).

Arayaga2 (2173) - portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Hazy honey gold with fleeting white. Aroma is sweet and spicy. Heavy spicy flavor on top of heavy carbonation, and its the good kind of burn. Alcohol is mildly apparent and the sweetness covers it nicely. $3/11.2oz
