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).

gripweed57 (1773) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 14, 2017
Fro old tasting notes. Cloudy orange gold color. Bubbly white head. Fragrant, perfumy malt nose. Zesty malt flavor with a noticeable boozy character. Brief bittersweet malt finish. This ale packs a punch, but lacks finesse.

bartlebier (3815) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
33cl 03/2019, BLsampler 2017-04. - Managed to avoid this for the better half of my drinking career, tramming past the garish blue bottle many times in that touristy beershop Ghent-Groentenmarkt. Now, along with many other hurdles, its catching up with me in exile. - - Decently viscous honeygolden pour with dense cappuccino cream head. Sugary aroma of metallic industrial honey, Frosty flakes, barley husk sulphurs, controlled additives. - Manages to taste like a Leffe Blond aspiring to Duvel, or Duvel giving up on its slim, self-respecting regime and landing at a corpulent, dulcet Leffe. Oddly, perversely, perniciously drinkable, as if 9% of ethanol are ether to a liver. - This beers seeks to imitate and target both these other iconic Blgian beers markets and ends up with a bloated, adjunct-laden bod and an empty soul. Professionally miscrafted at the highest level of expertise.

SkillsFactory (677) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2017
Tra loro antico e lambrato chiaro, limpida, schiuma bianca appiccicosa di buona persistenza e finezza. Aroma di lievito, chiodi di garofano, note di miele, metallica, note di frumento. Al palato attacca dolce, con metallo e chiodi di garofano, successivamente lievito e frumento per passare ad un finale erbaceo che non riesce comunque a prevaricare le forti note dolciastre miste a diacetile. Ben carbonata, corpo medio.

Fles gedeeld door Inoven, het is een helder goudgeel bier met een volle schuimkraag. Het heeft een beetje een zure smaak met een licht fruitige nasmaak.
