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).

75 cL bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a lacing white head. Spiced aroma with coriander and a lioght orange-ish note. Flavour is the same with a light acidic touch and a sharp edge from the spice and the carbonation. Doesn’t really have any smoothness but seems somewhat unrefined and almost brutal alcohol driven and carbonated. Ends warming and light spiced with a mild yeast note.

Ungstrup (34362) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2003
The aroma dominated by yeast with notes of oranges and coriander. The color is an unclear orange and it has a beutiful but disappearing head. The flavor is sweet with alcohol prickling the tongue and notes of oranges, coriander, and cinnamon. The sweetness lingers on the lips. A fine triple.

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2007
Bottled. Orangeish golden oclour with large white creamy head. Lacing. Aroma is fruity malts along with yeast, spices and slight alcohol. Flavour is yeasty, spicy, fruity, wooden and slightly alcoholic. Very pleasant. Alcohol leaves a nice warming feeling in the throat.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Pale golden, huge head and overly carbonized - the fizz never really fades in your mouth. Some alcohol burn. Another Duvel-rip off but one that didn’t really succeed. 220893

Hazy gold - amber beer with a small white head. Palate is light and crisp and semi dry. Little minerals. Smooth malt, dry. Spice. Whisper of citrus and esters and tinned fruits. Semi dry finish. Okay.
