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).

Bottle 33cl. @home poured into a tulip glass. Clear golden, huge soapy white head, dissipating slowly, light lacing; aroma sweet malts, (Belgian) yeast, spicy notes, after a while light tangerine and banana notes; taste light heavy sweet and light bitter, malty, light fruity, spicy and boozy notes; sweetbitter aftertaste, spicy notes, bit yeasty; full-bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation; smooth and warming, alcohol noticeable but in a modest way; a Belgian strong ale the way I like it.

Крепкий эль по вкусу и самой бутылки напоминает пиво Duvel. Не заметил какого то специфического вкуса. Среднее пиво для ужина. Не питкое

Clear like apple juice. No head. Aroma is malt, a bit of cat urine, and stale bread. Sugary sweet. Extremely low carbonation. Also, I find the label unsettling.

Belle blonde limpide en 33 cl. Odeurs de malt, de levure et d’herbes. Bouche légèrement acidulée, métallique, maltée ; pointe de rose et herbes. Plutôt sympathique mais sans plus !

Zilb (357) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - MAY 5, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2017 1an et 2 mois avant DLC. Blonde, carbo faible, col de mousse à grosse bulle bonne tenue. Nez sur l?alcool : différents types d?alcool. 1er nez sur l?alcool standard. En se réchauffant : toujours dur l?alcool mais beaucoup plus complexe ! Un peu de pomme également. Douce sur l?alcool et le malt. Pointe amertume en final puis alcool et fruit type banane bams. 3,5/5

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.
