2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Said to be a lighter version of Chouffe, an idea with potential, I thought. But it struck me as overly sweet, overly herbed, and boozily hot despite the low abv. A car crash in the Ardennes. Leafy coriander and schnapps. Thanks but no.

On tap at Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Light watery aroma with a bit of tang to it. Almost smells like a dirty line but not quite contaminated. Fruity notes, light yeasty character. Hazy medium golden-amber with white foamy lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mild pilsner malt sweetness with spicy hop presence. Mild finish, kinda watery. Muted bitter undertones.

Pours a murky golden amber on tap with a nice frothy tan head and decent lacing. Aroma and taste are light of belgian yeast and citrus, light on your tongue. Decent, but not what I wanted from La Chouffe.
