Brasserie de Bellevaux Blonde
Brasserie de Bellevaux produces an excellent Brune and an outstanding Black, so I've been keen to try their Blonde, a bottle of which has been waiting patiently in my inbox for a month or two.
The taste lives up to my high expectations of this small brewery in the Ardennes town of Malmedy. The overall mouthfeel is smooth, with fine carbonation. It’s got a firm but not overwhelming bitterness, offset by notes of orange peel, a pinch of white pepper, and a very gentle kiss of honey.
Overall, Brasserie de Bellevaux Blonde gets solid marks from me.
