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

Davros (2027) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours pale amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows spicy noble hops, faint vegetable notes, sweet light malt and spicy Belgian phenols. Similar flavours , quite hoppy with more spicy and grassy notes alongside light grainy malt. Good high carbonation works well.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Big bottle, shared with Ian. Hazy golden with a thick white head that leaves a mess of lacy curtains. Grassy, green hop character is front and center, with bready notes and slightly sweet biscuit malts. The hops are more central than the yeast. A nice brew.

shaynsawchuk (553) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy light copper with a thick white head of foam that laces nicely. Grainy malt, citrusy and floral hop with plenty of musty cellar character on the nose. Crisp, bitter and dry. Light bodied but creamy with high carbonation. Similar to, but less complex than the blonde. Superbly sessionable.
