COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
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 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.

Top notch belgian beer, slightly cloudy, with a yeasty haze. Didn’t think it was 10.5% when tasting. Very enjoyable. Spicey/herbal aroma. Sweetness, spiciness in taste.

A very good Belgian strong ale. Beer has a malty, spicy hops character. There is a definite alcohol taste throughout the mouthful, but if you drink your beercolder than recommended temps (like 40f or colder), the alcohol taste actually goes away. When drank cold, it is hard to tell the strength of this beer.

From old tasting notes. Cloudy honey gold color.mcreamy white head. Winey malt nose. Sweet fruity malt flavor is very high in alcohol. Long, chewy malt finish and aftertaste.

This one is no nonsense. Fairly rich foam, mild caramel aroma with a hint of tropical fruit, you can literally taste all these 10,5%, very strong and in my experience unique taste. Aye, it’ll f**k you up for a good hour or so, two options after drinking: 1) Actively listen to Alestorm, 2) Take a nap, because drinking this is equals to betrayal to and by your own body.

Bottle. Pours cloudy orange with big stable foamy off-white head. Aroma of malts, bread, toasty, grass, straw, floral and herbal. Taste is light sweet, light bitter with touch of acidic notes, floral and herbal mouthfeel. Heavy body, slick texture, soft carbonation.

Tretinka z Lidlu. Najlepsia na pive je vona, chut je trosku ovplyvnena CO2.

nephirem (496) - CROATIA - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Cloudy golden pour with one finger white head, thick and persistent. Nose mildly floral, herbal. Touch of wheat. Thin to medium body, softly carbonated. Regular texture, a bit watery. Malty sweet with a bit of alcohol burn on the tongue. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Aroma pretty much as expected. Belgian yeast, wheat. Herbal, grassy, slightly peppery. Subtle caramel and toffee. Noticeable alcohol presence. Finishes sweet a d a bit boozy with lingering alcohol burn. Overall, pretty good. Nothing out of ordinary, but nicely balanced and tasty.
