2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Said to be a lighter version of Chouffe, an idea with potential, I thought. But it struck me as overly sweet, overly herbed, and boozily hot despite the low abv. A car crash in the Ardennes. Leafy coriander and schnapps. Thanks but no.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml, flaske, 6,0 % ABV (iflg. angivelsen på flasken og ikke de 4,5 %, som stod på scanningen), købt i Kvickly Allerød, 21. juli 2014.
Flot strågul ufiltreret belgisk Ale med flot hvid, medium-skummende, skumtop på 4 cm tykkelse.
Aroma henad humle, malt og krydderier, og meget mindende om en Duvel fra Moorgatt. Koriander. Citrus.
Dejlig sommer-mild smag og alligevel fyldig. Eftersmagen er ikke lang, og her mærker man mildheden og den lidt lavere procent. Smagen er bitter med sine tilsatte byg- og hvedemalt og gær, men også med en let diskret portion sødme, som giver øllet fin balance. Øllet har et lille bittert og krydret twist til sidst. Let drikkelig og med belgisk kant.
I munden bobler det lystigt og friskt med et medium indhold af kuldioxid.
Frisk, lidt fyldig og let fyrig sommerøl fra ét af mine favorit-bryggerier.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft shared by Tmoney99 (late summer 2011). Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, mild fruity notes, apricots, light tart character, mild spices, light yeast with lightly toasted bread. I thought that it became soft mid palate through the finish.

Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a murky tan-orange color with a medium sized foamy off white head that faded and left minimal lacing. The aroma was a bit tart with a bit of golden fruits and faint notes of yeast and pepper. The flavor was tart, dry and bitter with touches of peach, pear and bread dough. Medium length dry tart peach, pear and bread dough finish. Medium body. Ok.
