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.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Slightly malty aroma with a little alcohol. Sweet taste with well balanced malt and alcohol, spices and big ripe fruit. Again this is a typical belgian blond ale, but this one stands out, with it’s power from the alcohol. Nice carbonation and medium mouthfeel.

Clear golden beer with some white head. Aroma is malty, spicy, alcohol. Taste is bread, spicy, mild sweet. Dry little hoppy finish, little bit feel of boozy. Descent strong ale although.

It's a little tasting beer that packs a punch. I was surprised that it was a 10% beer. It really doesn't taste like it would be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

33 cl bottle, typical belgian style. Strong Ale with high alcoholic volume (10,5% by Vol). This Ale is golden, clear and with white foam. Bitter, spiced and malted aromatic mix. A really good beer for having an idea of one of the Belgian brewery masterpieces!

Sterk blond-amberkleurig bier. Gemiddelde tarwesmaak en wat hop. Bijzonder is een zoetere honiglaag in dit bier.

Bottle as a gift from Tomáš, ďakujem! It’s Belgium, so you can literally smell alcohol from it. Taste is Belgian standard but still, I had betters...

A fortuitous purchase at the nearby HEB. Great name, great label. Let’s see what else it has going for it. The 750 bottle opens with an explosive pop. Pouring it into my tulip glass it delivers a straw yellow liquid and a tremendously tall white head reinforced by a steady stream of bubbles. The scent is rock candy, dough, a hint of spice. Building on that the taste comes across yeasty, a yellow plum sweetness, grain and toffee. Bitterness, no. Not a high level Belgian for me but I certainly do appreciate.

Very nice and different IPA. Full of character and complex flavors. Good balanced malts and hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

De color ámbar más claro de lo que la foto indica, tiene una preciosa cabeza de espuma blanca muy cremosa que retiene a la perfección en el cáliz todo el rato. Refermentada en botella. El alcohol es el protagonista tanto en nariz como en boca. En su aroma, además aparece algún tono herbal. En boca es dulce y… más de lo mismo, muy alcohólica. La pretendida complejidad del trago aquí se queda en pretenciosa y no termina de ensamblar bien todo el conjunto: el dulzor de las maltas, el licor, la levadura picante y el aporte del lúpulo. Tomada en varias cervecerías, quise darle otra oportunidad en casa, pero a mí personalmente es una birra que nunca ha terminado de gustarme y me parece que lo único que garantiza son borracheras express. Prescindible.
