dr.dod (473) - Szeged, - DEC 28, 2012
33cl draught. Nice foam with rings on the glass, you can feel only fruit especially tropical. Just at the end of the beer can taste some malt and hop and smoke. Very pricy.

[Thank you for sharing!][Sampled draft as "Winter Brigand" @ O.B.E.R. Kerstbierfestival 2016] Clear golden, little white head. Nose is cold esters, soap, overly metallic & served far too cold. Taste is weird, hollow, hugely metallic, thin, iron, faint vegetables, overall just very metallic. Body is very thin & hugely metallic, iron. Poor.

This was called Brigand Winter where I got it, and poured a pale amber colour with a soft, white head that dissipated leaving white lacing. Aroma is hoppy, sour, citrus, while the taste is similar with coriander and malt. It leaves a strange almost metallic aftertaste.

Svesse (8008) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015
(Draught at Eetcaf de Poort, Utrecht, 26 Feb 2015) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of tropical fruit, grainy malt and canned peaches. Malty, fruity taste with dried fruit, canned peaches, candy sugar and a gentle grassy, spicy bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Not very complex, but tasty and quite warming. Quite nice.
