Brasserie de Bellevaux Blonde

I've been creeping up on two magic numbers this week: 43 and 300. Friday is my 43rd birthday and, with any luck, the 300th beer tasting on this blog. But since I'm only at 295 at the moment, I'd better get cracking. On then to 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.

  1. One of my all time favorites but I do highly recommend to taste it barreled in the region. It goes from being a very good one to an amazing one.

    Thank you for a wonderful blog!
