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.

Rustic orange color with a short-lived whispy white head. Aromas and flavors open up lovely with florals and fruits. Bread dough, yeast, coriander, orange blossom honey, syrupy malt, and clove. Pleasant warning finish.

midovark (795) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - DEC 20, 2016
Bottled. In aroma at first the fruity and floral notes appear and later, with warming, the overwhelming alcohol, but thats not unpleasant at all. In taste it has the same notes that appear at the same order with some additional bitterness in finish, but with warming this disappears. It leaves sweet mouthfeel, has soft carbonation and heavy body, but despite of that is easily drinkable. Pleasant beer.

fiveacestx (968) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle - golden yellow with a large foamy head. An aroma of yeast and dried fruit and a taste of yeast and caramel. Balanced and boozy.

lkowalkowski (314) - POLAND - DEC 6, 2016
Barwa jasna, herbaciana. Piana drobna, gęsta. Aromat wyraźny, dosyć mocny. W smaku przyjemne, alkohol nie jest jakoś bardzo wyczuwalny.

Cristobal37 (994) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 6, 2016
Fruity aroma malts and bubblegum yeast little booze. Rich malty beer with strong fruity yeast, dates, plum and booze. Aftertaste is a dry bitterness which isnt ax good as the flavors initially. Not the best example of the style, but drinkable.

Ambre claire voile, jolie, attaque puissante en alcool, contre-balance par une douceur fruite assez dominante et malte, fruits jaunes mrs, lgrement sirupeuse, quelques notes caramel. Trs forte - trop forte ? do le 14 en global, peut-tre... - mais trs bonne. Bouteille 33cl issue dun pack trouve en grandes surfaces, le-de-France, France, bue le 30/11/2016.
