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

Leene (11) - - JAN 22, 2013
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.

tricksta_p (3769) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle at home. Aroma is soft malt, peppery spicy yeast, grassy hops, floral garden notes, a tad herbal, hay. Flavour is light sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Very nice balance between yeast and hops, grassy and green herbal floral with lots of peppery yeasty notes. Good one.

bartlebier (3562) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Full tap sample at Borefts 2016 - Dag 1, merci. - Another missing link between hayish bière de garde, dry and zesty saison and UK bitter: light-bodied, greenish, forwarding both the earthy straw of barley husk and almost a wild hedgerow hop character I am very fond of. Classic, to be revisited bottled.

TAR (2708) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 3, 2016
33cl bottle consumed at Brasserie Thiriez in Sept. 2014, bottled Dec. 2013: Coppery golden. Fluffy, pasty and creamy white foam exhibits stellar retention. Very bright and clean aromas of lemon, melon rind, lilac, gum, pecan skin and toasty malt. Soft and pillowy carbonation. Lusciously hoppy, with polished lemon atop a coarsely earthy punch of wood-root spices. Zingy, appetizing acids perpetually sparkle with fresh lemon as they deposit rich oily notes which are embraced by the refined and well-structured malt. Fluffy gum notes abound in the center before fading softly into the richly toasty, semi-lush haylike maltiness. Immaculate attenuation is beautifully augmented by the hop oils which produce a marmaladelike effect. Finishes dryly malty with assertive lemon zest bitterness capping things off. Another hopcentric beauty, with lovely malt character to boot. In other words, just your typical excellence from one of the best brewers in the world.

Lonick (1774) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours golden white head. Nose is hoppy and fruity. Taste is caramel at first leading to a big bitter finish, not much saison.

This was one of the last beers I had at Borefts 2016. And what happens is that sometimes you only jot down the scores but forget to add anything about the whole tasting experience. This is what happened here.
