3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 The Lure:
A lofty head forms intricate lacing around the peaches and apricots. Hay-like maltiness and oranges/citrus fruit assure a probably quenchable pride.
Sweet fruitiness benefits from the dry hay within. A cushiony mouthfeel emerges from the big bubbles (almost too expansive though) and capable maltiness. Papaya and citrus fruit rise confidently above the classy, restrained profile.
Warm winds whistling in between barn boards.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle, kindly donated by jaghana - merci beaucoup! Hazy amber colour, large and creamy off-white head. Sourish-fruity nose. Full-bodied, lovely malty base with caramel and fruit, balanced by a timid but interesting sourness. Balanced off by some aromatic hops in the finish, the tongue is played with by a miscture of caramel and malty sweetness, fruity sourness and hoppy bitterness. Highly interesting and fascinating.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 From tap at Brasserie Thiriez.
Mostly clear dark amber body with an off-white head. Spicy cara red malt cinnamon and tobacco and red apple. House strain shows its core rustic mustiness. Herbal hops with faint citrus oil notes. High caramelization, enough so that a trace of smoke is suggestable. Velvety texture, soft as can be, the signature body of Thiriez in full effect. Off-dry, low acidity, relatively low bitterness.
