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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours an attractive gold, lightly hazed with a frothy/creamy head. Nose is citrus, lemon, soft pils sweetness and chouffe yeast. Some caramel noted as well. On tasting, crisp and refreshing, medium bitterness, a touch on the sweet side overall. More lemony hops come through, as well as a clean malt profile. Faint caramel again. Tasty stuff.

Surprise draft at Thai 9 before Wicked. It was a warm day, with spicy food and this was a nice, lighter bodied thirst quencher. Cloudy amber pour with a big soapy white head. Flavors of grass and mild bitter hops. Fine if not different from "normal " Chouffe beers.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a head of foamy with a frothy top off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a very hazy dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and dough. The sour mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of sour hops and malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.
