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

Potverdikke (14) - SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle from brekeriets mixpack (systembolaget). There is something in the nose that turns me off. Some kind of combined hoppiness, maltiness and yeastinees that doesn’t go together. Taste is much better, nice hoppy taste with a bit of bite, but not too much. Nice aftertaste. If it wasn’t for the aroma, this would be a very nice beer.
