After the positive reactions of our customers toward Bellerose Biere Blonde Extra, we have brewed this special version. It has a ruby colour and undergoes generous hopping (It is Christmas !) to obtain even more surprising flavours. Completed with festive dry hopping Bellerose de Noël makes a true gift, a biere ruby EXTRA.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours lively copper red into the glass with a fine white head that settles to a nice inviting veil. The nose is caramel and dried fruit. All very cristmassy indeeed so far. The taste is sweetish, more of the same as the nose, like a sunday fruit cake. A tad too sweet. It is also very light in the mouth, so there’s not much more than pilsener malt and crystal malt in the bill. But the hops is backing up nicely and so it isn’t all unbalanced. A lovely x-mas beer if you ask me.

Bottle with Christmas dinner. Not what I was hoping for. Non too complex, quite basic medicinal flavoured Belgian ale.

LLaurin (323) - Motala, SWEDEN - NOV 24, 2015
Slightly red with a small head. Light Christmas taste and some herbs and spices. Taste short and palate diminishing and vague. Not my Xmas beer. But still not bad at a all.

Gorgosh (432) - SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2015
Det är lätt att förtrollas av förpackningen när en äkta kork äntligen får flyga i luften utan att överröstas av det eviga kapsylskramlet. När den barnsliga fascinationen är över avlöses den av den vuxna lyckan av ett förbannat gott öl. Frågan som uppstår är: När lärde sig fransoserna det här?

TEJA (2469) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Rather short head. Clear red-amber color beer. Dry spicy aroma. Spicy taste with a low sweetness and some caramell and a small bitterness.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottled. Brown colour with a big fluffy slightly off-white head that leaves lace. Aroma is sweet malts, some wooden and resiny notes along with some ripe fruits as well as some spices. Flavour is very similar with also some slight yeast and mild alcohol notes to it. Rather than disturb, the alcohol sweetness actually gives the beer a nice little kick.

Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - FEB 14, 2015
Bottle from systembolaget. Pours Amber with a small white head. Nose is bland with some sweet malts and alcohol. Taste is sweet with caramel and malts together with some spices. Palate is a bit oily and easy. Overall a pleasant beer, though no blockbuster.

AshtonMcCobb (5393) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2015
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Appearance - deep amber with a decent head. Nose - grass and pineapple notes. Taste - mountain herbs, lemon pith and booze note. Palate - close to medium bodied with a lean but concentrated middle section and a dry tangy finish. Overall - makes me think a bit Biere de Garde, a bit saison. Kept my interest.

Dracks till julbordet, passade lite sådär. Rätt lätt, lite spritig men samtidigt även kryddig. Fruktig som ett veteöl eller saison. Ett bra öl som är trevlig att dela på.
