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.

Bottle from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Pale straw coloured with a massive head of white rocky foam. It has a fruity, lemon and sugary sweet fruit flavour with toffee, spicy fruit and a warming slight tart zesty finish. Very good.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Lijep bogat izgled u čaši. Tamna narančasta boja i bijela pjena. Aroma je isto 'puna' i slatkasta , dosta sladna i voćna. Okusom dominira slatkoća i uglavnom dobro prati aromu. Piraat spada u slađa piva.

Drank 28-1-17 while writing. Fine beer! Quite thick body, some sweet alcohol, fine, like you'd expect from a beer like this.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2018 Dark orange, towards amber. Hazy. Aroma yeasty, spicy and dough-like. The taste has dried dark fruit, dates, figs and slightly fermented plums. The moderate sweetness is well balanced with distinct bitterness. Very good!

Sterk, pittig biertje met een licht zoete afdronk. Lekker bij kaas en chocolade, maar ook om zo te drinken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of the Christmas 6-pack, a good beer, where the strong ABV is a bit too present in the taste.
