COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique marriage between the English tradition of IPAs, the new American revolution of Imperial IPAs and the classic Belgian way of brewing. Houblon Chouffe, although very much hopped as it is, showcases the unique balance between a very strong IPA and a very special Belgian Tripel exclusively created for this ale (Big malty body, distinct dryness, expressive estery fruitiness). - IBU: 59, Original Gravity: 1092

Hopverdju (211) - BELGIUM - JAN 16, 2016
Helder goudblond bier met wandklevende witte schuimkraag met grotere bellen. Geur: hoppig, fruitig, perziken, abrikozen. Smaak: Hopbitter, fruitig. Licht tot redelijk volmondig en goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: aangenaam hopbitter. Lekker maar gevaarlijk (alcoholisch) biertje die men best zo vers mogelijk drinkt.

ShonaIi (20) - HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle at Pater Marcus. Pours a bit hazy golden-yellowish colour with a white bubbly longlasting head. Aroma of citrus and grass. Taste is heavily bitter but refreshing with citrussy notes and lemongrass. Lively carbonation. Overall nice and refreshing, massively hoppy which I love but can bee too much for some.

Piwo złote, klarowne. Piękna kremowa piana, trwała, lepi szkło. W aromacie delikatnie trochę owoców tropikalnych, trochę cytrusów, trochę lasu. Niestety jak dma mnie za dużo tego "trochę". W smaku fajna średnia goryczka, nawiązująca do aromatów. Wysycenie wysokie. Średnia pełnia. Ciekawy mix.

Gurthnar (4100) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle from Drinkshop. Lots of carbonation make for a very foamy beer, pour carefuly. Clear golden colour until you get to the bottom. Does justice to all it claims to be on the label. Assertively hopped with zesty grassy hops, however in a delicate balance with the spicy yeasty profile that many tripels could envy it. Very refreshing and easy drinking, alcohol completely hidden. Just what I needed.

Margarenia (10) - GREECE - JAN 12, 2016
0,33lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece One of the heavy beers I first tried and didn’t realize the well-hidden ABV. Taste of a nice and balanced hoppy to sweet beer with strong carbonation and flawless foam that stays like forever. Defenitly a favorite for me.

flying_pig (1304) - SCOTLAND - JAN 11, 2016
330ml Bottle from BeersOfEurope (Ł3.29):
A fresh & lively Belgian IPA that wasn’t overly hoppy but had nice Belgian yeast, floral touches & strong carbonation. Not overly complex when compared to other Chouffe beers but enjoyable with the alcohol well-hidden & nice background fruits plus a little citrus coming through.A decent beer but probably not the best from Chouffe & for that reason alone it’s probably not one I’ll rush to pick up again.

imdownthepub (12170) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Bottled, 330ml, aged 5.5yrs, from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Hazed orange gold with white head. There is a malty start to this, full on the palate with a light Belgian, fruity yeastiness, some bubblegum, some doughy notes. The leafy and bittering hops then take over, pleasant resinous notes and a floral carry through. All in all a very decent beer indeed.
