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).

SkillsFactory (738) - ITALY - FEB 11, 2017
Tra l’oro antico e l’ambrato 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.

ALLOVATE (3048) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2016
Into a chalice at just on chilled. Looks the goods as far as Belgian Golden Strong’s. Mountainous, steady plume of white rises up and out the glass. Cedes a wicked amount of Belgian lace in its wake. The body of beer a highly charged, deep, pastel gold that’s finely misted. Yeasty, vinous, sweet malt and spiced by booze is the very heated nose. Pear, guava, banana, lemon peel, rock candi and subtle eucalypt come through with a few swift swirls. Taste of lemon and barley cough drops with a warming, fusel finish. The body fills out as it warms otherwise it is effervescent and light chilled. Medicinal but displaying enough supple fruit esters to save it. There is hints of melon, banana and citrus amid powdery malt and a lean bitterness. Not much length bar a light herbal bitterness, even once it warmed. On a sweeter tip but steers itself well away from being cloying. Just boring really. A boozy glass of cordial. (33cL, BBE 03/19, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
