MoritzF (9015) - Ottobrunn, - OCT 22, 2012
(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

Owocowe, lekko goryczkowe na końcu trochę wytrawne. Całkiem ok

ALLOVATE (2771) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2016
Actor Gérard Depardieu’s flagship - quite chuffed about this one!
Into a snifter at just on chilled. Bright, sunny gold with a loose, fluffy white head that manages a little lace. Papaya and mango dominated nose with inklings of starburst fruit chews, Chenin Blanc grapes and mint with a touch of bready yeast. Quite light, almost delicate on the palate. A soft spritz kicks it off heightening some supple tropical fruit esters. Nuances of pear drops, strawberry, vanillin and rose water musk make it interesting. It finishes just as soft and delicate, fading off quickly with light floral notes dissipating. Body is lean so it drinks easily. Found as it warms there is not to differ from the chilled product so best consumed cold. Holds the 6.5% at bay well. I loved it for its restraint. Deadly sessionable stuff!

Skinnyviking (8200) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2016
75 cl. champagne cork bottle. High and lasting white fluffy head. Clear yellow golden body. Powerful sweet and astonishing banana apple pear aroma. Sweet honey dominates the fruity flavor of apples and pears with a nice hops bitterness, low cafbonation and a long sweet finish. Very well balanced and quite a surprise. On top of it the relatively high alcohol level is very well hidden. Lovely.

DrNosha (1028) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2016
0,33l Flasche. Goldgelbes Bier mit festem hellem Schaum. Es duftet nach Hopfen, Lidschi und Aprikose. Frischer Geschmack nach Aprikose, Hefe und Getreide. Im Abgang wieder etwas Lidschi. Überraschendes Bier.

guzgorog (584) - FRANCE - JAN 10, 2016
Belle blonde jaune pale, limpide et mousse blanche moyenne qui ne tient pas. Le nez est très agréable sur le houblon avec des senteurs de citrons et de litchi, des pointes de malts et de caramel également. En bouche, c’est décevant, le houblon devient quasiment absent, et on se retrouve avec une ale belge trop sucrée et écœurante (dans le style des ales belges de supermarché), très décevant. Le corps est moyen, la longueur pas terrible, l’amertume faible. Au final, très décevant, encore une ale belge / bière de garde uniformisée qu’on trouve dans les supermarchés ...

Nice aromas floral and hoppy. Nice balanced beer, lots of complexity to the taste, nice finish. Will definitely buy again.

corkyrory66 (1118) - BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2015
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.

Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Blonde classique maltée. Mousse blanche. Peu d'intérêt pour cette bière.

Pure gold color, sparkling clear. Low to medium head. In aroma there are flowers, honey and resin. Also hops are present. Mainly sweet taste with really light bitterness. Smooth with high carbonation.
