COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“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.

Bottle from Anders! bierfestival Pours rather clear blonde . Good to small white head fades rather fast . Smell is fresh , some herbs ( ’ watercress ? ’ ) Taste is nice and in balance. bit sweet, herbs , bit bitter/metallic ( way better than it sounds ! ) of the watercress . Very nice in balance, intense enough to enjoy its aspects, hidden enough to leave you a bit guessing . In the aftertaste, you get the herbal-ish taste . the watercress is very subtle over the whole line, but it works very well . If you taste it blind , I dont think it would be this different . Yet it IS better than the average blonde beer that tastes almost alike this ... I like it ! A hint to much carbo

Het is een gewoon blomd bier waar er 13 van in een dozijn zijn. Niet slecht, maar de slogan op het flesje (brewed tot impress) geeft teveel hoop voor wat er uiteindelijk maar in het flesje zit.

Bottle bought from Prik & Tik Marlou in Zonhoven. Blond beer. Spicy/bitter touch because of the watercress, slightly bitter aftertaste. Not bad, but I had more high hopes.
