Bottle - Bottle. Pours an opaque honey color with a really nice, frothy white head. Aroma of herbs, a touch of fig, and alcohol. Tingles the tongue going down. Medium bodied. Finishes okay. Has a little bit of an alcoholic burn on the back end. If you feel vine type characters you probably consumed it too cold.

Amber hazy with rich off-white head. Yeasty aroma. taste too agressive - sharp yeasty notes as well as sourness, some sweetnes and diachetyl.

Every time I visit Vrutak, I watch this little bottle. For over a year now. I guess I was a bit skeptical. Finally bought it. Hazy golden color, big white head. Aroma is yeast, wheat and malt. Medium sourness and sweetness. Medium body, lively carbonation. Alcohol hidden well. Something in between lighter BSA, Wit and Saison, perhaps. Not bad after all.
(Vrutak 0,33l bottle)

Amber golden appearance. Bitter and a bit sour taste. Interesting taste altogether but not rich in nuances.

Torrefacto (838) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 3, 2015
Dorado limpio y espuma blanca algo ligera.Aromas de ésteres afrutados, ciruela y uva. Cuerpo denso con carbonatacion alta que aporta además un golpe de acidez a un sabor dulce, aunque plano que acaba en un final seco de amargor moderado.

Syfher (194) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2015
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Very good, strong beer, with a nice aroma and palate. Great colour. Nothing more to say about it.

didierlewallon (216) - ponferrada, SPAIN - FEB 10, 2015
Cerveza de color dorado con una buena cabeza de color blanca. Aroma a levadura, naranja, especias y malta. Sabor un poco amargo y ácido, es equilibrada y suave. El alcohol deja una agradable sensación en la garganta, me gusto.

huineman (300) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 25, 2015
Pours golden with rocky head. Aroma is very low: biscuit, spearmint, corn flakes. Mouth-covering, medium body. Not very long-lasting.

PlutonowyMan (107) - POLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Piana mocna, niestety szybko opada, cho? pozostaje do samego ko?ca w postaci kocyka. Kolor bia?y. Aromat jest miodowy, ?liwkowy i lekko kwaskowy. Smak Brigand’a to ?liwki sma?one, miód ale z mniejszym nat??eniem ni? w aromacie, lekko wyczuwalny alkohol. Delikatnie goryczkowe, kwaskowe ale nie kwa?ne. Po ogrzaniu mocniej wyczuwalny alkohol, smak i aromaty s? mocniejsze i g??bsze. Alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa. Brigand na pewno jest warty uwagi.
