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.

JStax (3315) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Poured on draft at gnome week at the galley. Pale hazy yellow with a rather frothy white head. Aroma is kinda odd yeasty wheaty. Not great in that regard. Taste grew on me with its wheat influence, but still just seems to be lacking something. Overall, good, but I don’t think Id bother with it again.
