COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belle & Elegante is een mooi goud blond kleurig en elegant bier met een alcoholpercentage 6,5 % dat bij het begin van de degustatie zich laat kenmerken door een frisse maar toch volle smaak waarbij een vleugje zuiderse vruchten, zoals abrikoos geproefd kan worden wat te wijten is aan het gebruik van een Amerikaanse hopsoort. Doordat het bier een licht bittere afdronk heeft maakt dat het bier een ideale dorstlesser is in de zomer,maar uiteraard kan je op elk moment van de dag genieten van dit bier. Het is een bier wat de bierliefhebber, die eens wat anders wil zeker kan bekoren. Gezondheid!

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2013 3/VIII/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ my parents’ place - BB: II/2015 (2013-682)

Clear dark blond beer, big irregular creamy off-white head, pretty stable, little adhesive. Aroma: fruity, citrus, bit spicy, sweet malts, some orange peel, cloves, bit grassy. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet sugary start, honey, candied orange peel, little bitter, some almonds. Aftertaste: sweet and sugary touch, nice bitterness, orange peel. Although subtle, still pretty complex and interesting. Nice example of a Belgian Ale.
