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).

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2005
33 cl bottle, bbe July 07. Dark amber with a haze, unstable creamy off-white head, little pearling, no sediment. Gentle but pleasant round aroma of caramelised malt and liqueur. Sweet and alcoholic taste with a bitter aftertaste with liqueur. Smooth, solid palate with some carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2005
This is quite a potent Belgian Ale, coming in with an 8.5% ABV. It pours a clear golden color with a tall fizzy head that lingers just for a little while. The aroma is a warm toffee with a solid floral hopping, yeast, and sweet cherries and apples. The flavor is toffee with lemon zest and a blending of hop bitterness and peppery spiciness... very nicely done. The finish is pepper-hot with some alcoholic fire as well.

leaparsons (10407) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Bottle. Deep gold with a white head. Aromas are sweet brown sugar with lots of spices, yeast and alcohol. Flavours are sweet malts, brown sugar with hints of lemon. Peppery on the palate with a fairly bitter finish then lots of "warming" alcohol.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
33 cl Bottle. No yeast in bottom. Golden colour with a fast disappearing foam. Very yeasty aroma, and some yeasty taste with notes of hops and you can feel the high alcohol in the aftertaste. An okey belgium ale but not one of my favorites. Try the donker and blonde much better.

Hunsell (403) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2005
Clear golden beer with a nice white head. Aroma of fresh apples, coriander. Pretty sweet fruity start, ending with bitter hops. Lively carbonation, alcoholic finish. Pretty common story for a pretty common (good but not great) Belgian beer.

desmodus (1) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2005 does not count
Definately one of my favorites. But there is a huge difference between draught and bottles. Bottles are nothing special, but if you this beer on draught .... get it!

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
Middle-sized head on a golden body. Spicy, yeasty brew, with a bitter finish. Otherwise, nothing remarkable. Strong alcohol rating, I was almost drunk after drinking half of the 75 cl bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 He probado la botella de 1 litro, y ha esta me referire. Me parece una buena rubia., Aunque existen muchisimas cervezas belgas mucho mejores.

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 didnt really succeed. 220893
