This strong amber beer was first brewed in 1982 at the request of Van Steenberge’s 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.

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 don’t see the appeal. I can tell its quality but the flavor just isn’t there.

hmm a bit spicy but mostly malty and a tad sweet. kind a pale gold looking colour. the hight alcohol is mildly detectable. not much of an aroma.

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 don’t 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.

Draught: Clear gold white a white head. Strong fruity green apple aroma, with overpowering esters. Excessively sweet estery flavour, with heaps of pepper and alcohol. Medium bodied, but too much alcohol for me.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 2, 2005
Deep gold with a white head that forms an island in the center. The aroma is interesting with a yoghurty softness over tropical fruit (banana and pineapple). It has a big body with plenty of warming alcohol, a crisp apple attack and a caramel finish.
