COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rebellious Brigand is a dry bitter, blonde beer that re-ferments in the bottle. It used to be amber in colour; now it is pale blonde thanks to the use of pale malts and pils malt as well as unmalted wheat. Brigand tastes full in the mouth with a slightly malty aroma. It also has a slightly malty taste with accents of spices and hops. The hop bitterness comes through in the finish.

Ingredients: water, barley malt (Pale, Pilsener), unmalted wheat, sugar, hops, yeast, antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

A: caramel, nuts, butterscotch, very good!!! A: Clear, amber. sparkling. Rocky head, very white, like a sorbet. T: heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, lots of alcohol. More butterscotch and malt. P: medium body, creamy, lively, astringent. O: I would like a full body here and less alcohol. But it is a nice beer.

Gurthnar (4777) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle. Quite appleish in aroma, spicy, light alcohol. Lightly hazy golden colour. Stable white head. Taste rather simple, lots of Belgian spiciness, rather sweet, but not unbalanced. Alcohol does not show much but does a little. Overall good but not very complex.

AssKicker (182) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - AUG 11, 2015
Très forte carbonatation, goût d’alcool important (voire trop important), notes de banane. Ouaip, le goût d’alcool est trop omniprésent pour qu’elle soit vraiment agréable. Dommage.

Robe orangée et légèrement voilée.La mousse se forme et tient moyennement.Arôme très floral, beaucoup d?ester.Saveurs de banane, raisins secs et fruits jaunes.Carbonatation fine.Assez longue en bouche.On finit malheureusement sur un arrière goût métallique qui gâche un peu la dégustation.Une bonne bière.

jamaty (1775) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Ambar anaranjada algo turbia. Mucha mucha espuma. Bastante duradera. Aroma a uva algo avinagrado. Bastante cuerpo, carbonatacion escasa. Sabor poco comun: achampanado, uva... Un toque algo dulce y un calor claro de alcohol, sin que se note muy fuerte. En cualquier caso decepciona.
