“La Cress”, a blonde beer brewed on the basis of Belgian hop and watercress cultivated on the fertile grounds of the agricultural Haspengouw region.
La Cress is a delicious blonde beer that leaves a rich smooth feel in the mouth. The brewing process includes a secondary fermentation in the bottle, providing natural carbonation. The watercress seeds add the herbal flavor. In addition to the inherent bitterness of the watercress, you will also appreciate the beautiful hop aroma generated by the 100% pure Belgian hop varieties.

erickok (5451) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
Vegetables, floral hop, minimal base malts. Not too watery though, just light, bit sugary. Taste is better than the aroma. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

Bottle 33cl. Clear pale golden, large frothy whitehead, slowly collapsing, good lacing; fruity nose, yeast, balm, chamomille, bitter lemon, candy sugar, honey notes, floral; taste medium sweet and light to medium bitter, fruity, herbal and spicy notes, average to long duration; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, sweetbitter aftertaste with herbal bitterness and peppery notes from the watercress I presume in the finish; peculiar and interesting brew, I consider this as a Herb Beer.

Hopverdju (709) - BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2015
Blonde kleur. Mooie blijvende witte schuimkraag. Geur: fris bitterig. Smaak: aangename bitterheid en carbonatie. Goed in balans en vloeit ook mooi uit. Gewoon een lekker “no nonsense” bier!

Valt nogal mee, een goede kleur en schuimkraag. Iets bittere smaak. Valt nog mee dus.

Blonde « brewed to impress » dit le brasseur, mais cela ne suffit pas (toujours)… Refermentée, houblons belges et graines (siliques) du cresson de Hesbaye (proposé par Ste Lucie de Tongeren …). Son classement devrait donc être en spice/herb/vegetable, mais il est en belgian ale, comme d’habitude sur ratebeer … Niveau abv de 6,5 %. Mon exemplaire était juste à sa date. Couleur jaune un peu citronné, avec un léger voile de levure. Bulles moyennes à montée lente, peu nombreuses. Mousse blanche épaisse, puis nappage soyeux de 1 mm. Arômes de malt clair, herbes, houblon amer, touche de biscuit sablé. 1ère bouche douce, à l’amertume très incisive, très acidulée. Arrière-bouche qui pince la gorge, un peu médicinale. 2ème un peu plus acceptable. Arrière-bouche avec toujours l’amertume pincée. 3ème où on passe à une impression de pils. Arrière-bouche acide. Longueur sans vraie amélioration, comme des baies vertes. Jambes lisses, assez collantes. Levure douce, simple, ligne faible. Alcool correct pour ce genre, mais il ne travaille rien. Finale sur la même ligne. CONCLUSION : bière qui a voulu exploiter la silique amère d’une plante d’eau … C’est un coup dans l’eau !!!

Helder goudgeel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Moutig in de neus met gisttoets. Matig zoet in de mond met duidelijke hopbitterheid. Bitterige afdronk.
