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

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2012
[bottle] a gentle pour from an unsettled bottle yields equal parts meringue-like head and a cloudy dark straw colored body. The aroma is floral hops right out front, followed closely by saison yeast. There is lots of lemon rind, a touch of isopropyl, yeasty bread dough, hints of acid, and a light herbal quality. The flavor is initially dry and bitter. The hops linger long after the sip. The carbonation is perfect and the beer feels quite soft in the mouth. The bitterness is just a touch out of balance, but not too bad. Nice saison. Definitely a beer to have fresh.

Vignale (2103) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 26, 2012
Ljus vätska med tydlig gräsig humledoft. Smaken är örtig åt gräshållet men beskan snarare apelsinskalaktig och tydligt markerad. Frisk och fräsch, lätt olijg, rejäl eftersmak från humlen och medelstorkropp gör det till ett riktgt bra öl och ett klockrent typexempel på hur en BdG skall smaka.
