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.

this is like a light belgian has some of the characteristics that one would expect from a belgian but in a weaker, sissier form. do not waste your time.

Slightly skunked smell, even slighter in the taste. Heavily malty, with 3 kinds of malts (barley, rye, wheat), but not sweet at all.
Its dry and somewhat yeasty. Big rocky white head.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright orange gold body, some haze, topped with a fluffy head, good lacing. Aroma is fresh herbs, spices (corriander). Taste is very summery and refreshing - bubblegum edges, spices, citrus fruits. Finish was excellent - very dry.

Certainly lightweight! The aroma is mellow, wheaty, very lightly fruited. The taste is, well, light and airy, sparkly fruit like a very mild champagne. Not unpleasant, just quite mild.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a hazy dark gold with a smallish head. Nose holds interesting autumnal spice notes, orange peel, hay, some grassy hops. Flavor is similar but with increased bread and dough and a nice dry finish. Pretty good.
