MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, - 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

Bottle. Pours clear yellow with medium sized white head. The aroma has light orange juice. The taste is sweet citrus. Odd but not bad.

Jimthechap (1790) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 20, 2014
It was an intrigue, this beer. All the appearance of a blandish golden ale with the tangy aromatics and flavours of something a little sour and very interesting. Notes of nectarine, lemon, passionfruit and peaches in the aroma that were present in the flavour along with a tang of sourness. I could have consumed this beer four or five times over. Just lovely.

JorgeLee (1270) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour, big white head, slight haze. Fruity aroma, may well be lychees. Otherwise hoppiness here is European and restrained, but good. Sweetish body, some yeasty funk, good balancing bitterness. Very drinkable.

erose, une bière blonde surprenante tant pour ses arômes que pour son palmarès. D'abord pour ses arômes car c'est une bière Ale de fermentation haute qui a utilisé 3 houblons venus de 3 continents différents et bénéficié d'un houblonnage à cru lui permettant ainsi de libérer toutes ses saveurs fruitées. Ces notes houblonnées se mêlent à des notes d'agrumes et maltées qui réduise son amertume. Mais aussi pour son palmarès, élue d'abord médaille d'argent en 2011, elle décroche l'or en 2012 au Salon de l'Agriculture 2012. Elle a également rassemblée les avis aux Royaume Uni en se faisant élire "Meilleur Ale de plus de 5%" au Challenge International 2011 de la bière à Londres. La Bellerose, une première réussite pour la jeune brasserie nordiste.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2014
Draught at The Florist, Bethnal Green on 18 Oct. Poured a light amber, with a slight haze and a halo of white head. Aroma of peaches, grain and Belgian yeast esters. Soft fruit flavours, with hay and bready malt. Finish was flowery, with some tinned fruit and mango sweetness.

Digzis (91) - Nancy, FRANCE - OCT 19, 2014
Bière assez sympathique et rafraîchissante. Plutôt fruitée, avec des notes citronnées, des notes d’agrumes et légèrement de fruits exotiques. L’amertume n’est pas trop forte, il y a une certaine rondeur en bouche, avec un côté légèrement mielleux.

bewyder (139) - FRANCE - OCT 17, 2014
Premier test réussi. Les suivants un peu moins. Plutôt bonne blonde, très agréable, amertume mesurée malgré les 3 houblons, fruitée et florale. Reste relativement modeste et manque un poil de caractère et d’accroche. Première bouteilles bue au bar de La tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, le 09/02/2014.

MrMuddley (19) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Straight down the middle Blonde that’s very enjoyable. Hop flavour upfront which gives a passing bitterness that is quickly rounded off by a sweet honey finish. Well balanced and great with food.
