Thiriez Blonde (Belgian-Style Blonde Ale)
Date Night Beer Pairing
Thiriez Blonde, Belgian-Style Blonde Ale, France (750 ml)
Daniel Thiriez’s rustic little brick-and-beam brewery graces the village of Esquelbecq, plunk in the middle of the rolling farm country of French Flanders. Monsieur Thiriez makes ales with an earthy,
slightly wild character that recalls the early days of farmhouse brewing. The delicate spicy champagne aromas of this thirst-quenching blonde beauty are quickly followed by a bracing rush of whole fresh hops. This beer is so forward, so fearless – so sophisticated, but so excitingly rough.
