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

pintbypint (3641) - Edmonton, Alberta, - AUG 26, 2012
750ml green bottle. Lot 292. Golden pour, some haze, mousse-like white foam on top, good sticky edges. Nose has grasses and hay, slight lime or lemony hop as well. Taste is bready, some citrus sweetness in the middle then layer of grassy hop on top with an herbal edge. Mild yeast finishes it out. Green grassy aftertaste, citrus. Decent lasting bitterness, dries out nicely. Lots of carbonation, medium body. A nice saison.

Tranquillity (2333) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2017
Bottled. Hazy yellow-orange body, huge off-white head. The aroma is hoppy and has some grass and weed. The body is is very lively. The taste is extremely authentic and... a lot of love went into it. Nice long hoppy finish.

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

Mr_Abner (385) - 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 (1498) - 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.

jmgreenuk (9452) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 11, 2017
Sample at Borefts 2016. Poured a clear straw colour with a round white head. The aroma is mineral, yeast, citrus. The flavour is acid citrus with a yeasty bitter acid mineral fruity hop palate and a bubbly mouthfeel. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

bottle at home for 2016 European secret Santa courtesy of V_Duquerroux, cheers Vincent!
burnished gold with fluffy white head. quite grainy, dusty, slight diacetyl on nose. full bodied, very underattenuated for a siaon unfortunately, some bitterness but overwhelmed by caramel sweetness, could charitably call it a biere de garde. Not a big fan I’m afraid.

3.2
