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).

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.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 7, 2016
- gelb-durchsichtige Farbe mit guter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Alkohol, Kirschen, Honig und Karamell - die Carbonisierung ist mir entschieden zu hoch - der Alkohol drängt sich im Antrunk schon etwas zu heftig nach vorne - danach kommt noch etwas Honig, Muskat und Lakritz hinzu - der Abgang wird dann säuerlich-prickelnd Fazit: Kohlensäure und Alkoholgeschmack sind entschieden zu hoch

Ysok02 (1004) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2016
Robe blonde, reflets dorés, mousse crémeuse. Nez opulent sur des notes de fruits jaunes, de levure, un coté un peu chimique. Bouche ŕ l’attaque explosive, bulle marquée, fine amertume, mais un ensemble peu excitant. Pas mon style.

Iznogud (2505) - CROATIA - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml at Beertija, Zagreb. Pours dark golden with white head. Citrus, fruit, spices, yeasty note. Warming, even bit boozy. Medium bodied. OK, but nothing special.

BenL8 (60) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 17, 2016
Pours hazy amber with fizzy foam. Spicy and boozy aroma, fruity, intense and heavy. Caramel and syrupy. Medium-heavy body, spicy, caramel. Estery-fruity, syrupy and sweet. Boozy. Not really bad but boring.

Bijl (227) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 29, 2016
33cl fles. Ambergeel helder, witte schuimkraag die snel zakt naar een mooie laag. Schuimresten blijven mooi langs het glas plakken. Behoorlijk koolzuurpareling in het glas..... vind ik zelf altijd wel een mooi gezicht. Aroma: Zoete mouten, hint karamel, iets fruitig, lichte metalig, een een vleug Belgische giste esters (Banaan). Ook een geur van vers brood en boter. Smaak: Fruitig zoet, zoete mouten, iets peperig/gekruid en ietsje wrang. Behoorlijk wat alcohol warmte merkbaar.... het is ook 9% ABV. In de afdronk een redelijke nabitter. Ook zorgt de CO2 voor een aardige sprankeling. Toch drinkt deze Belgian Strong Ale redelijk makkelijk weg, body is medium en afdronk bitterzoet / wrang. Geheel niet slecht hoor..... het is van alles wat.

rayaron (1393) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 11, 2016
Bottle 330ml. Clear golden-yellow, fizzy with bubbly white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and ripe fruits (peach, banana). Sweet flavor, very alcoholic with notes of caramel and candy, ripe fruits, yeasts, light citrusy bitterness. Medium-bodied.

Japalo (1833) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2016
Bottle@bette ølhus with Stefan. Cellar musty notes. NOT offended by it. Dry. No hoppy notes. Fine but to strong alcoholic. Too high fermented! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (4312) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
330ml bottle @ Domino Steakhouse, Spa, Belgium. Pours clear pale gold, good white head. Aroma is sweet, sugary. Taste is a sweet Belgian blonde, light spice, sugar with a bright carbonation. Not bad but not really hitting the high notes.

Fules (795) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2016
Nagy kezdeti hab, ami gyorsan egy centisre apad, ez viszont már sokáig megmarad. Átlátszó, sötét borostyán színű. Illata enyhén édeskés, mézet érezni, komlót, virágillatot. Enyhén édeskés, kissé fűszeres, mérsékelten szénsavas, kissé élesztős. Testes, pár korty után telít.
