This was called Brigand Winter where I got it, and poured a pale amber colour with a soft, white head that dissipated leaving white lacing. Aroma is hoppy, sour, citrus, while the taste is similar with coriander and malt. It leaves a strange almost metallic aftertaste.

Svesse (7720) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
(Draught at Eetcafé de Poort, Utrecht, 26 Feb 2015) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of tropical fruit, grainy malt and canned peaches. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, canned peaches, candy sugar and a gentle grassy, spicy bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Not very complex, but tasty and quite warming. Quite nice.

Nice warm winter beer. Nice clear color. The foam disappeared quite quick. The bouquet was nice and somewhat fruity.

Daanminator (476) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015
Mooi blonde kleur met een flinke witte schuimkraag. Bier smaakt zeer fruitig en het bouquette is zoet. Zeer zacht en lekker bier.

Plaas (92) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2015
Nice opener for the Kerst- en Winterbierenfestival at De Kleine Deugniet in Alkmaar. Malty and fruity, a bit like a triple actually. Quite high in alcohol. Classic, but not exciting.
