Pours a blonde colour. Quite yeasty tasting, alcohol on the palate. Not bad but not something I’d have again

La Bellerose a déjà le mérite de présenter un packaging bien trouvé par la brasserie des Sources avec une belle étiquette faisant référence aux années 50. En verre, belle prestance également, couleur jaune paille, limpide, fines et nombreuses bulles et mousse crémeuse d’un cm d’épaisseur. Le nez se porte essentiellement sur une base lactée, aux notes de céréales et très légèrement citronné. L’attaque passe quant à elle quasi inaperçue, très aqueuse avec quelques notes de céréales. En deuxième bouche s’affirme le malt avec des arômes de céréales se développant ensuite sur l’ananas. En arrière bouche, l’amertume se laisse découvrir pour prédominer sur le final. Celle-ci est cependant d’une intensité décevante, d’une longueur moyenne avec un petit côté aigre en fin de bouche. En conclusion je crains bien que les arômes de cette rose, n’auraient jamais pu inspirer Ronsard, même si une certaine finesse se dégage de celle-ci.

A: Bright straw with a medium white head. N: Sweet and fruity. T: Full-bodied blonde beer with a faint sweetness. P: Full mouthfeel. O: Pretty standard fare for a blonde ale, although the sweetness needs a bit more complexity to make it work.

rauchbier (3808) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Bottle. Lemon gold, fluffy and persistent white head and gentle condition. Pleasantly spicy and yeasty on the nose with some Duvel-like notes, quite malty sweet with a hint of honeyed Bohemian hops. Soft yet full bodied in the mouth with an initial yeasty sweetness and a slightly spicy edge but allowing the odd shaft of grainy malt and pleasant hop bitterness to shine briefly through.Finish is restrained and spicy with a background of chalky hop bitterness and a little fruity maltiness.

The_Osprey (6630) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
330ml bottle at home in Richmond as ’Bellerose Bière Blonde Extra’, 6.5%, BB Sep 2019, brewed at Brasserie des Sources. Very slow gush. Clear amber, sparkling, dense foamy off-white head. Aroma is peppery biscuits, spicy honey, candi sugar. Body is frothy with tingly carbonation. Taste is breathy musty hops with honey and candi sugar, crackers and spice, semisweet malt, touches of citrus and champagne. Fantastic balance. I’m quite impressed, considering I would not usually turn to this style. For the price (I paid £1.20), this is not one to miss. Recommended. [Note to admins - how is this not a biere de garde?]

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