My drinking beer buddy on his recent trip to France and Belgium brought back some local bottled beers for me to try. Bellerose was one he found in France. Who knew the French make some pretty great beers besides wine. This Belgian IPA pours like a typical IPA with some medium carbonation. Smell was right on with American craft IPA with hints of hops and taste was hoppy but not overwhelming so probably IBU in middle of the pack. Overall this IPA is one I like but my local beer store does not carry it.

Bellerose is a very  interesting beer.
Firstly for his taste. It is very original, tasty and spicy with a kind of fruity taste.
Secondly for his design and concept. Bellerose means 'Beatiful rose' in french. On the bottle and all the packaging, we can see a pin-up. She gives to that  beer a funny and glamorous touch.
I recommend that french beer 'Bellerose' for all the beer lovers who want to discover and appreciate new flavor and taste! Enjoy.

Bellerose is a tasteful beer with fine aroma of litchis and citrus fruit that give to the beer a very refreshing after taste. By poring the beer into a glass, I was able to appreciate it’s nice bright colour; typical for this IPA style of beer.
What I also like with this beer is the bottle and the label itself. It gives a very French and glamorous touch to the beer with a retro and vintage look!
To sum up my "Bellerose experience", I would say it is the perfect beer to share with some friends around couple of nice French cheese!

Poured from 750 mL bottle into tulip.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow with moderate carbonation producing a 1/2 inch white head. Excellent retention. Hint of lacing.
S: Honey, herbal notes, sweet melon, minerally mustiness, and a pleasant subdued floral note. Quite nice.
T: Tart fruit and a dry mineral note up front. Then comes a pleasant and fairly delicate melange of herbs (very similar to a chamomile tea) and floral (lavender) notes. A distinct note of lychee. Finishes like a dry sparkling white wine.
M: Light body. Some carbonated effervescence. Lightly sweet with a slightly oily feel. Pleasantly dry finish (more wine-like, not a hoppy bitter dryness).
D: An eminently drinkable brew. Very nice for style. Delicate, complex, and intriguing. Refreshing and wonderfully sessionable.
