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

Leene (11) - - JAN 22, 2013
hazy golden golour with big white head that dissapears quite quick. there’s a strange flavour in the aroma, I can’t really put my finger on what it is but it gives the smell a strange ’accent’. medium to light body, no specific flavours that stand out. not my favorite style of beer I guess.

hawthorne00 (3416) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2016
Bottle. Hazy gold with a white head. Subdued aroma of lemon, oranges, light dough, hay minerals.Light bodied, high carbonation. Dry with abrupt citrus and austere crackery yeast; bitter and very dry at the fast-arriving finish with coriander and sandy (!?) minerals. Interesting, almost withering.

Bawelt (486) - Lyon, FRANCE - JUN 25, 2016
Très bon ! Simple mais franchement agréable. Nez avec pas mal de levure, fond houblonné frais. Bouche hyper équilibrée, très fraîche, attaque acide, un peu de corps céréalier, longueur houblonnée fraîche, plutôt herbale, modérément amère.

robinvboyer (4064) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle at the beerbistro. Hazy caramel pour, with alot of sediment, and a big frothy head. Aroma is very fruity, and yeasty, stone fruit, and pears. Low bitterness, fruity, yeasty finish, a tad too sweet though, lacks crispness and drinkability due to very high carbonation.

Listigovers (854) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
Very weird beer, strange smell, hazy pour, flavour is spiced like cardamom, lots of yeast and a bit of subdued funk. Herbal and earthy, very dry, I loved this.
