3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle shared courtesy of dick in some beer. Paul had to very slowly open this one over the sink. He mentioned that another Thiriez beer he had was a gusher too. Poured a deep and slightly hazy golden color with a small sized white head. Lots of small particles. Aromas of some spices, pine, citrus, and somewhat grainy. Tastes of citrus, lighter spices, citrus and light yeast. Thinner body.

Color is nice, dark and a little red. Smell and taste are off. Spices in the smell. Taste is a little sour. Not very good in my opinion.

Bottle. Hazy, orangey coloured, small and stable foamy layer. Sourish-grainy nose with a touch of cloves. Moderate sweetish-sourish, light to medium bodied. Sourish-fruity finish. Not great........

Bottle at Volo, shared, but not so drinkable Xmas biere de garde. Faded spices. Rather bland. Reminds me of too many xmas beers we did not like.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL thanks to Travlr.Slow gusher. Large creamy, beige head atop deep reddish ruby, rust. Good lacing. Mega malty nose with brown sugar, black cherry, some celery, dill, wet hay. Taste is bitter, minerally, black cherry soda, rustic malt. A bit bland. Effervescent rather than thick and malty. No oatmeal richness wanted in style. Not too bad. In a way it tastes like diet black cherry soda mixed with malta non alcoholic beverage.

Bottled. A hazy amber coloured beer with little head. The aroma is very hoppy and sharp. The taste has a nice sour farmyard quakity with the hops again nicely noticeable. Slightly spicy and very tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 From tap at Brasserie Thiriez.
Mostly clear dark amber body with an off-white head. Spicy cara red malt cinnamon and tobacco and red apple. House strain shows its core rustic mustiness. Herbal hops with faint citrus oil notes. High caramelization, enough so that a trace of smoke is suggestable. Velvety texture, soft as can be, the signature body of Thiriez in full effect. Off-dry, low acidity, relatively low bitterness.

bottle, kindly donated by jaghana - merci beaucoup! Hazy amber colour, large and creamy off-white head. Sourish-fruity nose. Full-bodied, lovely malty base with caramel and fruit, balanced by a timid but interesting sourness. Balanced off by some aromatic hops in the finish, the tongue is played with by a miscture of caramel and malty sweetness, fruity sourness and hoppy bitterness. Highly interesting and fascinating.
