BEER HAIKU #71 Brasserie des Sources Bellerose Blonde

A first! Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar this week offered a French brewed beer on tap as the weekly new release. Bellerose purports to mingle characteristics of the familiar Belgian IPA and the more exotic (by Wellington standards) traditional biere de garde styles. Also – according to Greasylightbulb – the brewery was started or funded by French cinema legend, Gerard Depardieu. Or something. So we’re told.

Brasserie des Sources Bellerose Blonde (6.5% ABV)

Silken, delicate

Bit smooth, light body, trim frame

Not much like Gerard

Food match: ploughman’s lunch (bread, sharp cheddar, pickles), moules et frites

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: you need something in which to drown spiders.


hai·ku (hk)

n. pl. haiku also hai·kus

1. A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.

2. A poem written in this form.

  1. “…drown spiders”?

  2. graciouslyyours says:

    Interestingly, I note that the hai ku has been tampered with between the typist exiting the bar in question and poem being published. Admittedly, the second line is much better for it, but still … As to drowning spiders – someone clearly does not drink across the spectrum.
