La Cress, a blonde beer brewed on the basis of Belgian hop and watercress cultivated on the fertile grounds of the agricultural Haspengouw region.
La Cress is a delicious blonde beer that leaves a rich smooth feel in the mouth. The brewing process includes a secondary fermentation in the bottle, providing natural carbonation. The watercress seeds add the herbal flavor. In addition to the inherent bitterness of the watercress, you will also appreciate the beautiful hop aroma generated by the 100% pure Belgian hop varieties.

Bottle from Anders! bierfestival Pours rather clear blonde . Good to small white head fades rather fast . Smell is fresh , some herbs ( watercress ? ) Taste is nice and in balance. bit sweet, herbs , bit bitter/metallic ( way better than it sounds ! ) of the watercress . Very nice in balance, intense enough to enjoy its aspects, hidden enough to leave you a bit guessing . In the aftertaste, you get the herbal-ish taste . the watercress is very subtle over the whole line, but it works very well . If you taste it blind , I dont think it would be this different . Yet it IS better than the average blonde beer that tastes almost alike this ... I like it ! A hint to much carbo

erickok (5696) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 3, 2016
Vegetables, floral hop, minimal base malts. Not too watery though, just light, bit sugary. Taste is better than the aroma. (33cl bottle from Dranken Pauwels)

Bottle 33cl. Clear pale golden, large frothy whitehead, slowly collapsing, good lacing; fruity nose, yeast, balm, chamomille, bitter lemon, candy sugar, honey notes, floral; taste medium sweet and light to medium bitter, fruity, herbal and spicy notes, average to long duration; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, sweetbitter aftertaste with herbal bitterness and peppery notes from the watercress I presume in the finish; peculiar and interesting brew, I consider this as a Herb Beer.

Hopverdju (958) - BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2015
Blonde kleur. Mooie blijvende witte schuimkraag. Geur: fris bitterig. Smaak: aangename bitterheid en carbonatie. Goed in balans en vloeit ook mooi uit. Gewoon een lekker no nonsense bier!

Blonde brewed to impress dit le brasseur, mais cela ne suffit pas (toujours) Refermente, houblons belges et graines (siliques) du cresson de Hesbaye (propos par Ste Lucie de Tongeren ). Son classement devrait donc tre en spice/herb/vegetable, mais il est en belgian ale, comme dhabitude sur ratebeer Niveau abv de 6,5%. Mon exemplaire tait juste sa date. Couleur jaune un peu citronn, avec un lger voile de levure. Bulles moyennes monte lente, peu nombreuses. Mousse blanche paisse, puis nappage soyeux de 1 mm. Armes de malt clair, herbes, houblon amer, touche de biscuit sabl. 1re bouche douce, lamertume trs incisive, trs acidule. Arrire-bouche qui pince la gorge, un peu mdicinale. 2me un peu plus acceptable. Arrire-bouche avec toujours lamertume pince. 3me o on passe une impression de pils. Arrire-bouche acide. Longueur sans vraie amlioration, comme des baies vertes. Jambes lisses, assez collantes. Levure douce, simple, ligne faible. Alcool correct pour ce genre, mais il ne travaille rien. Finale sur la mme ligne. CONCLUSION: bire qui a voulu exploiter la silique amre dune plante deau Cest un coup dans leau!!!

Helder goudgeel bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Moutig in de neus met gisttoets. Matig zoet in de mond met duidelijke hopbitterheid. Bitterige afdronk.
