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

oh6gdx (20302) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (thanks sayravai, who left the bottoms up for me). Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is citric and a bit acidic yet still hoppyish bitterness. Flavour acidic lemon and very dry hopping. Mouthdrying hopbomb in finish. Not a favourite, but still quite interesting.

fiulijn (14397) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Bottle from La Cave à Bulles, Paris
Blond color; too much carbonation, very lively, huge head, almost like whipped eggwhite, but with a very nice perlage. Nice aroma, dry, spicy (cloves), hops. Dry mouthfeel, light malt aroma, a bit floreal, with traces of yeast. Strong bitterness (just a bit harsh, maybe not the best hops). Refreshing.
