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

Bendrixian (1370) - Canadiana, Ontario, - JAN 28, 2013
750 ml green bottle. Coarmy and slightly hazy golden yellow colour. Has a big green bottle funk aroma and a diaper note. It has a metallic taste and other than being carbonated and has a bit of bite to it, this is a rather boring brew.

mile (3575) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish aroma, faint fruitiness and light citrus, faint spiciness (coriander), light some herbal hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish - lightly sweetish flavor, faint fruitiness, light citrus and spiciness, some herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty - lightly wheaty and dryish, light citrus and spiciness, herbal hoppyness. OK dryish and decently hopped saison. Body is bit thin and in the finish bitterness gets bit sharp/soapy. Could use more body and fruitiness to balance bitterness.

330 ml bottle at the beer bistro. Pours a cloudy orange colour with good-sized off-white head. Aroma is herbal and floral hops, tart fruit, spice and grains. Flavour is big on herbal and floral hops and yeastiness with tart apple, some solid spiciness and some graininess. Drying finish. Nice, interesting beer.

KansaiBeerLvrs (3564) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 29, 2015
Brasserie Thiriez - Etoile du Nord 5.5% bottle at Cave a Bulle. I heard this is a historically significant beer in France as it was the first truly hoppy beer and is a saison at that. A golden brass color with a huge thick fluffy head. Yeasty hay, flour, spices & mild hoppiness in the nose. The taste is bready, saison spices and herbal hops.
