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.

The aroma is heavy with yeast and malt and some sweet raisins. The appearance is fantastic. The color is a hazy dark golden and pours one of the finest foamy heads I have ever seen. The flavor is super sweet with some cheese, ginger, and cloves. Packs an alcohol kick thats stronger than it needs to be. The aftertaste is sweet and bitter. If you like really sweet strong beers you will love this one!

On tap at The Celt, Diest. Golden transparent color with a big head. Yeasty and wheaty aroma. Sweet, dry and alcoholic beer. The beer has a very short finish.

Part of the globalbeernetwork 6-pack. Poured a golden amber with a huge, white, frothy head. Fruity and doughy aromas. Caramely and slightly tart. Zesty, peppery aftertaste. Good stuff.

Full yellow color with white filmy head. Aroma is sweet alcohol, yeast and wheat. Some spice. I dont see the appeal. I can tell its quality but the flavor just isnt there.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2005
Small bottle -Poured blonde with a small white carbonated head. Aroma is of yeast, granny smith apples, and some citrus fruits. Flavor is of pineapple, apples, pears, bannanas. Quite sweet and syrupy. On the palate this is carbonated well very thick and sweet like syrup and the alcohol can only be felt through the warmth that comes at the back of each sip. Not bad but a little sweet for my tastes.

Bottled. Blondish beer with a stong head, the aroma is strong and sweet and the flavour is syrupy to accompany its strong alcohol content. Overall a good beer.

Had this on tap at the Drafting Room in Spring House, PA. Poured a cloudy golden with a small bubbly head. Fruity aroma, I smelled pear actually. Also picked up the pear in the flavor. Some spices and other "tropical fruits". This one was very sweat and very good. Slightly tart after taste. I had the bottled before I started rated beers and I dont recall liking it quite as much as I enjoyed this draft.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2005
poured a hazy golden with a nice white fluffy head, typical belgian good smell off sweetness and fruit, tastes sweet with a little bite, and silky smooth going down, this is my favorite style of beer. good body, very drinkable.
