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

This isn’t bad, but nothing I would recommend. Taste and aroma are okay for the style. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

kerenmk (5358) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Yoav. End of bottle. Cloudy, weird, hay-like colour with white head. Cookie dough, raisins, jasmine aroma. Mildly bitter, lingering, some cucumber. Smooth texture, light-to-medium body, leafy green vegetable finish.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2013
750 ml green bottle. Coarmy and slightly hazy golden yellow colour. Has a big green bottle funk aroma and a diaper note. It has a metallic taste and other than being carbonated and has a bit of bite to it, this is a rather boring brew.

iammarc (382) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle at The Anderson. 18th taster out of 19 at Burns Festival, Jan 2013... hence the shortage of notes. Light body, with a combination of citrus and hop smells. Gentle finish, good smooth taste.

DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Yoav. Hazy blonde color. Yeasty aroma with overripe fruits. Sweetish fruity flavor, finishes with some hoppy bitterness with citric notes. Medium-bodied. Pretty easy-drinking.

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.

Atheist_Peace (1042) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2013
750ml bottle. Hazy gold pour with tons of fluffy white head. Has a real skunkiness about the nose, like it might be lightstruck, there’s a real plasticine thing in there too and some lemons. Quite light on the palate, lemony, light struck in all probability. Light body, metallic bitterness. Not great.

sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2012
On tap in La Capsule. Poured a bright blonde with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt and floral hops. Medium body, flavour of citurs (lemon) hops with some sweet hoppiness. Slightly bitter aftertaste.

erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2012
Clear golden body with off white and unstable head of small bubbles.Pleasant herbal and light spiced aroma, fresh grass from the hops, very light malts but enough clean yeast to give some base to this beer. Spicy taste profile, a herbal bitterness and more than expected. Has little body to build on, but I think it can get away with it. Herbal finish. Medium yet active carbonation. A bit different than expected; fairly clean and light base but with quite some classic hops, making it an interesting twist on a bier de garde/saison kind of style. Like the bretty feel to this. Very enjoyable. Man, I’m a sucker for well made saisons.. (33cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

3.5
supermeniscus (81) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Light body, nice carbonation and long zesty hop finish. Very tasty, no complaints here
