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

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.

Bozo_skeleton (1165) - Grenoble, FRANCE - APR 23, 2017
Jaune paille, faible carbo, collet epais persistant. Aromes puissants, herbeux, epices, legerement citronnes Corps plutot mince, tres belle presence herbeuse en finale avec une amertume seche. Superbe equilibre en tout point de vue

Huj (26) - BELGIUM - MAR 22, 2017
Superbe amertume Tres belle limpidité Hyper agréable à boire Bien sèche sans pour autant être aqueuse

3.6
Mr_Abner (388) - Michigan, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Bottle. Pours a hazy, dull golden color with a white head. The head leaves behind some thick lacing after a few sips. Herbal aromas, saison yeast, earthy -- smells lightly sweet. Taste is moderately to medium bitter with a light sweetness underneath. Grassy and herbal hops. Medium bodied; carbonation is on the soft side of average; dry, bitter finish.

3.3
GuideDogSaint (1752) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 20, 2017
330ml bottle from a shop in Xiamen. Pours hazy golden brown with a thin white head. Aroma of bread, hops and malt. Sweet finish with a hint of bitterness. Seems more like a pale ale than a saison.
