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).

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

MoritzF (9582) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2005
(bottle) Pale golden colour with medium foamy white head. Citrus-fruity aroma with yeast and coriander tones. Quite dry flavour with a slight presence of alcohol. A very tasty brew, initially fruity and breadish malty with a long spicy finish.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Golden orange color, liveley carbonation, medium foamy head, yeast and koriander nose. Peppery start, mustard seeds taste in the middle. The body improves as the beer warms up - the alcohol comes through too. Ok.

I dont see why this Belgian Ale is rated so low. Its pretty good. Im having it right now after the Brewtopia in NY which was a great time. You cant beat NY! Yeasty, fruity, and coriander flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry. BTW Lou18 if you werent so F-up you could of had some too :P.

Mklein818 (172) - Etterbeek, Virginia, BELGIUM - APR 7, 2005
A true classic--a beer with a lot of body and shape, a great copper color, a strong yeast flavor and an almost syrupy acidity. Good stuff!
