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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy of Pailhead. Dirty orange with big white head. Lots of floaties from sediment. Aroma a little sour with lots of yeast. Flavor very yeast almost farmhouse in a way, very dry spicy flavor present near finish. Probably a little old, but decent nonetheless.

Cloudy and red with some swirling sediment. Nose is all nuts and light fruits...grape, pear, green apple. Taste is lively, carbonated and fruity. A very quick drying at the end (from the rye malt??). Nice aftertaste of grassy dryness and that odd Belgian yeast that makes it all "stinkybarn/buttercookie-like"

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.
