Had a pint of Thiriez Extra on draft at the wonderful Partisan DC (a sister restaurant of Churchkey) this weekend. Served in a large wine glass (great idea!).

Appearance: Thiriez Extra is a brilliant, hazy orange-gold color and is topped by a 2 finger white head. Good carbonation is evident. Spider-web like lacing sticks to the glass. A slight swirl brings the creamy foam back to life. A very good looking beer that exhibits all the best visual attributes of an authentic Belgian Pale Ale or Saison.

Smell: Lots of earthy and grassy tones jump from the glass, beautifully focused by the red wine goblet the beer came served in. The yeast has a distinct clove-like medicinal quality that meshes very well with the earthy, grassy, mildly spicy noble hop aromas to create something distinctly fresh, green, and refreshing.

Taste: The taste follows the nose beautifully--grassy, mildly spiced with notes of clove and pepper, with the additional elements of lemon and a tea-like herbal quality. The hop character is fairly pronounced, though the bitterness is only mild--this is still quite a balanced tasting beer despite the dry-hopping.

Mouthfeel: Though this beer is quite low in terms of ABV, wow does it pack an excellent amount of body. It's well-carbonated, in the medium-high range, and it has a creaminess that is characteristic of the best Belgian beers. Thiriez Extra also sports a very pleasant dryness in the finish. An extremely drinkable beer that goes down quite easily, it is great as the lead-off drink accompanying a meal.

Overall: Thiriez Extra is an excellent Saison/Blonde ale featuring exceptionally balanced flavor and mouthfeel. Highly recommended.
