COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Frères de la Bière.

Initialement nommée "les Frères de la Bière", elle est le fruit d’un partenariat avec un brasseur anglais, John Davidson de la Swale Brewery, dans le cadre d’un projet Interreg.

Blonde, légère en alcool, un houblon aromatique du Kent, utilisé très généreusement lui confère son caractère unique.. "Dès l’attaque, l’amertume est là, puissante, enrobante,bien associée au malt. Structure moelleuse, bien maltée et sans lourdeur. Du houblon à l’état nature envahit le palais. Les amateurs vont en raffoler" Bière Magazine mars-avril 2006 Exportée au USA sous le nom de Thiriez EXTRA

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 10, 2010
Bouteille 33 cl achetée à la braaerie à Esquelbecq (F). Bière jaune foncée, trouble, petite mousse fine. Parfum de malt et houblon, en bouche c’est l’amertume qui prend le dessus. Si le corps est léger, malté doux, c’est l’amer qui finit à nouveau en force. Sûrement un essai de pale ale américaine ou une belge ratée. Bière trop typée, pas agréable. De plus à la brasserie, on est pas souriant, lent (1/2 h d’attente) et pour la sympathie, il faudra repasser. Je ne repasserai pas !
