(bottle, 33cl, Bellerose Bière Blonde Extra, 6.5% abv) Hazy, pale golden colour with a short foamy white head. Fruit-accented hoppy aroma with notes of citrus and an exotic touch, as well as hints of white bread and herbal accents. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Pale malty base with a fruity hops character; moderately sweet malty finish with a delicate level of bitterness. 10.X.12

Meerdere malen gedronken op zomervakantie in Frankrijk 2014. Helder goudgeel blondbiertje met een witte schuimkraag. Geur is hoppig met fruittonen lichi en citrus zijn hier inderdaad in terug te vinden. On de hoofdsmaak domineert de kruidnagel met een bitterzoet boeket. Afdronk is redelijk met een opbouwend bittertje. Een van de betere Franse bieren die ik heb geproefd.

LasseVPedersen (218) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle, 75cl. Shared with a bunch of friends. Pours golden with a medium-big, foamy off-white head that leaves good lacing. Fruity aroma with bread, yeast, wheat, lemons and citrus, dough and hay. Flavour is fruity, sweet and beautiful balanced. Mostly sweet, yeasty flavour with dough along some citrus hops bitterness. Hoppy and floral light after-taste. Rich carbonation, soft, but somewhat creamy texture with a medium body. All around the table liked it. Good stuff.

Bottle at Town Street Tavern, Horsforth. Pours clear gold, thick white head. Aromas of white pepper, yeast, orange. Taste is kinda saison-y, but with a touch more hop bite, Nice enough.

Bottled 07/06/14. A golden coloured beer with a whitish ring of head. A fruity yeasty beer. Nice bretty type flavours. Good depth. Tasty and enjoyable. Stylistically Belgian for me.

This is a fantastically quaffable and quenching beer, it’s seeming over carbonation isn’t apparent, pours great, great head, lacing and everything. Sour/bitterness is well under control and there are citrus lemon things going on to keep it all interesting. I’m really happy with this a a choice of beer. It is however a light beer, and so therefore leaks depth and doesn’t carry to a long finish, but that doesn’t make it a bad beer. I wish I had another. It’s just nice.

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.

Golden color, medium head, light malty finish yet bright and refreshing. Good choice for lighter fare or enjoy several on a warm afternoon.
