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

pintbypint (2542) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 26, 2012
750ml green bottle. Lot 292. Golden pour, some haze, mousse-like white foam on top, good sticky edges. Nose has grasses and hay, slight lime or lemony hop as well. Taste is bready, some citrus sweetness in the middle then layer of grassy hop on top with an herbal edge. Mild yeast finishes it out. Green grassy aftertaste, citrus. Decent lasting bitterness, dries out nicely. Lots of carbonation, medium body. A nice saison.

Bottle. Yellow hazy, foamy. Belgy blond yeastyness, green, light citrus, fruityness, pale malts. Medium bodied, pale malty, some bitters, but soft. Ok belgian blond, but nothing too special.

minutemat (1314) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
330ml bottle @ La Capsule, Lille. I have no idea why I paid 6 euros for this. Pours hazy gold with frothy head. Nice enough hoppy blond taste with a little spice and moderate bitterness.

Torrefacto (501) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2014
Color oro pálido algo turbio con espuma blanca. Aromas de frutas verdes con punto cítrico y levadura. En boca es fresca y ligera con un inicio dulce breve que pass pronto a una moderada acidez afrutada con trazos cítricos. Bien.

330 mml bottle tasted on 12/06/2014. Hazy golden colour with a nice bubbly head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy and malty. The taste is balanced with notes of hops, bread and sweet. Light body and medium carbonation. Medium bitterness. Next one please!

jice (91) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JUN 4, 2014
Intéressant et déroutant. Très fines bulles. Très forte amertume. Une bière anglaise mais produite dans le Nord!

Davros (1859) - 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.

Hazy hay. very Lively. Big head. Smells of resin, earth. Sweetness. Spicy and very hoppy. Powerful bitterness, especially for a saison.

DuffMan (6462) - 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.
