Ottima blond ale profumata e leggermente fruttata al naso ma anche al gusto. Meno dolce e corposa rispetto alla cugina La chouffe. Note più speziate e erbacee che la rendono forse più beverina. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Summer beer from Achouffe, dating from when they were still independent and had a beer for each of the four seasons. Tasted as an old beer at 5 years of age, some cardboard in the nose, but otherwise well-preserved, soft, friendly and yeasty character, dryish, some peach, aromatic hop bitterness in the finish.

Darkmagus82 (1998) - - JUN 20, 2014
Transfer from BA review from 6-30-12- Served on tap in a tulip glass Appearance – Served a hazy yellow-orange color with a billowy off-white head. The head had nice retention, eventually fading to leave a fair amount of lacing. Smell – The smell was largely of wheat, spice, yeast and a lighter citrus aroma. Mixed with this were some aromas of green apple and a very light caramel smell. Taste – The taste began with a sugary sweet and bready flavor with good hints of the citrus that was in the nose. With these flavors is a strong presence of a yeast flavor. As the flavor advanced, some spice came to the tongue with hints of a sour lemon/apple entering the scene. The sour got stronger more toward the end of the taste with the sweetness lightening some giving overall a a nice mildly sweet and sour spice flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The thickness of the beer was a little on the lighter side with the carbonation level being average to just above average. Both made for a very refreshing wheat style brew. Overall – A very easy drinking and flavorful beer that is great for a warm day. While a little pricey for the quality it was well worth a try.

2/II/14 - 75cl bottle @ Vintage Tasting, Brugs Bierfestival - BB: ? probably at least 10 years old (2014-158) Thanks to the person who contributed this bottle!

Clear dark orange to amber beer, big irregular off-white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: very fruity, lots of peaches, orange peel, sweet malts, caramel. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: fruity, lots of peaches, some orange candy. Aftertaste: marzipan, peach candy, bit sweet and sugary, some cardboard. Survived pretty well, but I’d rather have a fresh one. HEY, MOORTGAT, DID YOU HEAR ME? I WANT THIS STUFF DISTRIBUTED IN BELGIUM, instead of just the States and the Netherlands. (Pssst: I’ve heard rumours that as from this spring, it will be available in Belgium.)

750ml bottle 7/00-Pours a light amber with a small head. Aroma of fruits, hops, and caramel. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad.
