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.

Maakun (6428) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2017
Bottle at De Paas. Almost clear copper golden with white head. Lots of sweet malts, light marzipan, peach, bitter alcohol, light grassy herbs, quite bready and some toffee. Over medium sweet with quite bitter alcoholic finish. Full bodied with alcoholic finish. Too much alcohol but not terrible.

One of the underestimated beers. Wide available in supermarkets but definitely oustanding aginst similar style beers. High on alcohol but a very pleasant balance between the sweet and the bitter. Worth trying again.

Palate : medium to heavy body. Slight sweet aftertaste. Great carbonation. Overall: great Quad. Easy drinking, non offensive. I was glad to try and will buy again. MB. The Beer "Bear"on.

Amber color, large off white head. Aroma caramel, yeast, fruit. Full body, some alcohol. Flavor sweet at first, bit of hops at the back, some esters and spices. Interesting at best.

tgrtnr (321) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 11, 2017
330 ml bottle, served in chalice. Pours pale vibrant orange with big foamy head. Ripe fruits, clove, coriander, bread. Fruity sweetness, hoppy bitterness. Finish is bitter with a strong alcoholic punch. Soft carbonated, medium body. Pure Belgium feeling.

3.6
FireGlider (694) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 7, 2017
Golden color with big thick white head. Strong raisins aroma with some clove and dark fruits notes. Taste is sweet and strong. You can feel high alcohol content, but as strong taste more than alcohol. Not a drink for lager lovers.

Zakupene v lidly. Pekna zlatista farba. Vona sice nevyrazna no chut to krasne kompenzuje. Prijemna husta chut s dlhou koncovkou.
