Nicely fragrant summer beer. Flowery hops contribute to aroma along w. a peppery spiciness, fresh sawdust, soap - sounds a bit odd but nice. Reddish-gold color w. nice creamy head, which remains well into your drinking. Earthy enough to be called a saison but w. an English ale fruitiness - a hybrid beer, perhaps. Finishes cleanly, and a bit dry. A touch light struck, but very drinkable.

Aroma of sour apple and hops, with a cloudy, dark golden colour. light apple flavour but lacks a solid body flavour.

This was only ...really good. Not what I was expecting as I am on a Saison kick lately.Has the crisp cideriness but sans that something extra like my new found Fantome.

I shared the bottle together with a friend and we both agreed this wasn’t a bad beer at all. Fruity, something bitter, citrus. A nice beer.

BlueGaljoen (104) - FRANCE - JUL 2, 2016
Bière blanche très marqué Coriandre, mais mal équilibrée. C’est un mix de bière de vacances et de bière Belge. Il y a beaucoup mieux sur ce type de blanche. La moins aboutie des Chouffe.

amber in color with a hoppy aroma, hint of fruit, had a citrus flavour with a hop finish, went down like water.... lacked substance
