MarcoE (12) - - APR 8, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Twee jaar oud, van de tap in café De Mug. Koperkleurig, donkerder dan jonge Brigand. Medium schuimkop, minder dan de jonge soortgenoot. Zacht houterige geur, wat caramel, laurier(drop?). Smaak begint goed en sluit aan bij de geur. Redelijk wat ijzer. Beetje bloesemig. Natuurlijk een port-achtig en verder mooi ronde, zachte, lichtdroge afdronk. Mooi bier, maar niet spectaculair.

Torrefacto (783) - 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.

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

allmyvinyl (5367) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear straw gold, massive head, high carbonation. Aromas of pear drops, bread, light coriander seeds. Taste is hot, more pears and breadsticks. Slightly sweet and boozy finish. Not great.

PlutonowyMan (75) - 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.

Syfher (182) - 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 (203) - 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.

SirLimpsalot (2489) - SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
@ Basunen 15-1-31: ganska typisk belgisk doft med tydlig krydda och lite parfym. Smaken är tydlig het med de sedvanliga kryddertonerna samt kola. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!
