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!

caesar (6854) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2017
Bottle brought by a friend, 15 cl sample. Slight hazy golden color, medium frothy head. Aroma is mainly spicy and peppery, slight flowery hops and yeasty esters. Soft bitterness in taste, dry and spicy. Typical belgian blonde, but still on the spicy and estery side. Lots of yeast character. Decent though.

corkyrory66 (1714) - BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2017
Ale de 6,5 % abv. Mon exemplaire tait 17 mois aprs sa date. Couleur dor moyen, la clart nette. Bulles assez grosses et peu nombreuses. Mousse fin flocons en nappage stable 1 mm. Armes de fruits blancs mrs, pomme rouge, glantine, pointe de pche. 1re bouche souple lentame malt, fruits blancs, pomme sucre, pointe dabricot. Arrire-bouche avec un ct fleuri. 2me o les notes abricotes se mettent en avant, mais irrgulires. Arrire-bouche avec le fruit sur un malt pils. 3me aux contours trs imprcis. Arrire-bouche avec du fruit sucr surmont d une cassonade. Longueur qui ne dtermine rien. Jambes lisses, longues. Levure douce, un peu vineuse, ligne correcte. Alcool correct, mais il ne peut grer lquilibre de lensemble. Finale confuse. CONCLUSION: une bire trs banale, sans ligne directrice. Vague et imprcise.. plutt que belle et lgante!! Petite diffrence ...

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
(Bottled, BBE 06/2016) Hazy golden-amber with a small, firm and lasting head. Mild aroma with peachy fruitiness, Belgian yeast and slightly caramelized malt. Flavor is caramely-malty, quite fruity and even tropical, slightly yeasty. Medium+ body, soft CO2. Has a sweetish edge, but overall this is an easily drinkable and tasty, nicely fruity blonde. The american hops are somewhat drowned in the Belgian yeast, but I dont mind. 5436

TBone (16533) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2015
Bottled 330ml (from BBF, BB 06/2016)
Golden color, bubbles, small white head. Aroma is fruity apricot, grapes, lychee. Medium-bodied, even a bit watery. Front has apricot, banana but then quite strong grassy and citrus hoppyness. Fruity and hoppy but not sweet. Light for its ABV. Evidently yeast is Belgian and hops from America.
