Blonde extra aux 3 houblons de différents continents, mais non refermentée … Pourquoi ? Awards à Londres, Paris, Tokyo et Melbourne. Niveau abv de 6,5 %, magnifiquement inscrit en grands chiffres sur l’étiquette, dans une typographie très américaine. Très beau. Couleur doré soutenu brillant, à la clarté pure. Bulles fines par centaines, partout, vives. Mousse blanche épaisse et crémeuse, stable à 5 mm. Arômes de malt grillé fin, houblons divers, croûte de pain complet. 1ère bouche souple à la belle entame malt et fruits, pointe de lichee. Arrière-bouche jolie, mais un peu aqueuse. 2ème avec malt et agrumes finement mêlés. Arrière-bouche très belle, plus pleine. 3ème au bel ensemble malt/houblon avec une pointe d’herbes aromatiques. Arrière-bouche avec du malt et tabac blond. Longueur où l’amertume se complexifie, avec pointe de genièvre, tilleul, camomille, riesling. Jambes fines, groupées, serrées. Alcool bien dosé pour le genre, il justifie la belle étiquette. Finale très belle. CONCLUSION : une bière de très belle performance, avec une longueur qui développe bien les saveurs.

This beer was given to me as a present and I am glad it was. Bellerose is a very refreshing blonde ale from France, thought they only made wine, pretty good. Tasted from a 750 cork bottle

I found this beer to be a whole lot of fun. It is incredibly aromatic, and smelling it was a great pleasure. The palate does not disappoint either as it is full of flavor. This beer is expensive to be sure but at the same time I have not tasted anything like it. I enjoyed it from start to finish.

dobre i smaczne piwo, przede wszystkim cytrusowy aromat, chmielne nuty takze, lekko metne i puszysta piana. Chmiel w smaku bardzo wyrazisty, daje wytrawnośc po przelknieciu. Ogolnie cytrusowy posmak z lekka odmiana IPA. Ogólnie polecam

Sehr. Feines Bier. Erinnert mich an das Maredsous. Blonde. Golden in der Farbe mit schönem Schaum. Alkohol schmeckt man, sehr frisch und leicht bitter.

Bottle from King&Godfree. Nice yeasty beer. Aromas of butter and cream cheese. Taste is sweet, slightly tart, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

Bottle, shared. Pours a hazy light golden color with a smallish white head. Nose is light with some hints of sour, banana, and spices in there. Taste is very slightly sweet, with the elements of the nose coming through. Feels very smooth.

12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle on Route 8 in Pittsburgh. Has a hint of an IPA in it without the burn or the excess of hops. Very enjoyable and well worth a second or third.

Une blonde dorée avec une mousse éphémère. Le nez est légèrement floral et fruité. L amertume n’est pas importante malgré les 3 houblon. Se boit facilement et très agréable.

330ml bottle into tulip. Sweet spice nose, cinnamon and cloves. Amber beer with fluffy white head. Light carbonation. Lightly spritzy mouthfeel. Taste is cleansing hop bitterness. Superb finish, like a supercharged hefeweizen. Cloves, banana, cream, lemon; it lingers like an acid drop. Very good beer indeed.
