tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pour is a clear golden color, little bit of yeast floating around, with a fluffy white head. Very floral nose, slightly spicy and citrusy, some pine, and a little grassy. Grassy and slightly peppery taste, there’s some not-quite-dark fruit in there, almost a perfumey taste. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Quite tasty, very floral, but the aroma was a lot better than the taste.

Un bon moment avec cette jolie blonde ! bel équilibre, les houblons sont bien présents et sont bien mis en valeur à travers une bière très raffraichissante

McTapps (6630) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2017
The beer has got a clear amber colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of caramel, yeast, hops and sugar. Sweet malty finish.

Marko (5270) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 20, 2017
0.5l can shared with ogivlado and Iznogud (thanks Ogi!). Golden body, white head. Canned by Jenlain. Err... the aroma shows a nice Belgian presence with some herbal hops on top but completely annihilated by a huge metallic note. Taste... creamy Belgian yeastiness, light herbal hops. Thankfully weaker metallic note. Not bad really for a canned beer, but that off flavor offsets it.

LazyPyro (739) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
33cl bottle from M&S. Pours a surprisingly clear golden/blonde colour, no sign of any yeast floating around, very thin white head which fades away quite quickly. Aroma: sweet malt, citrus, banana, yeast, honey. Taste: sweet malts, citrus fruit, yeasty, spicy, slight hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Medium-full body and mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A good drinkable beer, not outstanding but considering how cheap this is (£1.49) in the UK it’s pretty good for the price.

Ferris (13586) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle - Sweet honey and herbal notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light sweet malts, touch of honey and a dry light bitter finish. Nice, but nothing special.

Cunningham (7347) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2016
Clear caramel color with a fine big frothy off white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation level. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Decent complexity in the flavor. Fruity, some yeast, malty, mild citric and some spices.

Cimbasso (843) - - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle from Marks & Spencer. Pours a clear yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of malt and bubblegum. Taste is yeasty and malty. Quite sweet with notes of honey, spices and bubblegum. Not a bad Belgian Ale.

Pours a blonde colour. Quite yeasty tasting, alcohol on the palate. Not bad but not something I’d have again

La Bellerose a déjà le mérite de présenter un packaging bien trouvé par la brasserie des Sources avec une belle étiquette faisant référence aux années 50. En verre, belle prestance également, couleur jaune paille, limpide, fines et nombreuses bulles et mousse crémeuse d’un cm d’épaisseur. Le nez se porte essentiellement sur une base lactée, aux notes de céréales et très légèrement citronné. L’attaque passe quant à elle quasi inaperçue, très aqueuse avec quelques notes de céréales. En deuxième bouche s’affirme le malt avec des arômes de céréales se développant ensuite sur l’ananas. En arrière bouche, l’amertume se laisse découvrir pour prédominer sur le final. Celle-ci est cependant d’une intensité décevante, d’une longueur moyenne avec un petit côté aigre en fin de bouche. En conclusion je crains bien que les arômes de cette rose, n’auraient jamais pu inspirer Ronsard, même si une certaine finesse se dégage de celle-ci.

A: Bright straw with a medium white head. N: Sweet and fruity. T: Full-bodied blonde beer with a faint sweetness. P: Full mouthfeel. O: Pretty standard fare for a blonde ale, although the sweetness needs a bit more complexity to make it work.
