Piraat pours well with a two finger thick head, into my 3 Monts Tulip glass. The body is gold in color and has a slight chill haze to it.
The aroma is a little perfumy and fruity. There seems to be hints of orange rind and maybe a little candied sugar too.
The taste is a little tart and medicine like. There is a slight unripe grape and orange rind taste that turns into the burning alcohol flavor, which makes this have a little bit of the medicine taste.
Mouthfeel wise it's a refreshing and fruity beer up front, but gives into the warmness of the alcohol. This makes me believe I'd enjoy this beer a bit more if it were late fall/winter timeframe.
All in all this is an interestingly complex beer, and deserves another stab in the cooler season time.
