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

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a massive frothy head. The aroma of banana hits you straight away then there is an underlying citrus. Lively carbonation with the taste being bitter as expected with an IPA.

Wow! Pours cloudy orange with a MASSIVE foamy head, it’s great. Aroma is a little citrus but loads of banana and clove as is distinct for Belgian yeast. Taste is of a Belgian wheat beer with all the bitterness of an IPA... it’s an interesting combination, I’m liking it.

Cor palha brilhante, creme muito generoso e altíssima duração. Ótima carbonatação é garantia de mantimento do creme por muito tempo. Amargor balanceado e até baixo para uma IPA. Harmoniosa e com retrogosto na medida. Tem um que cítrico o álcool apesar dos 9% harmoniza perfeitamente. Aromas de damasco, mel e fermento. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TorbenJensen (472) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
Very exciting Belgian tripel simmering very nice in the glass. It takes several minutes before the foam falls. Lovely fruity hop aroma with hints of citrus. The taste is very distinctive for an IPA, for overturning not just in with lots of hops from the outset as such. This ale has only a mild and very fine malty taste which small hints of fresh soft fruits will have little room. Next, surpasses it in a slightly acidic citrushumlet fresh taste, like so towards the end becomes slightly more hoppy in a very balanced way.

Typisch bier van Moortgat, zoet, eigenlijk té zoet. Je proeft gewoon dat dit bier er is om veel van te verkopen, bier voor de grote massa. Heel vlak smaakpalet, kan mij moeilijk voorstellen dat dit een bier wordt met "jaargangen". Barst van de suiker.

A unique blend of strong hops and a triple. Smell reminiscent of a hef on the initial nose with clove and banana esters. Taste of bittering hops and big malt. Well balanced and enjoyable especially for the high etoh ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sápadt, opálos méz színben tündököl a d’Achouffe főzde komlóközpontú tripele, a tetején egy szellős, közepes sebességgel fejlődő habfedéllel, mely szép lassan redukálódik, s csipkés lenyomatot hagy a pohár falán. Illata kikezdhetetlen, természetes, remekül kiegyensúlyozott, a tökéletes jelző lehet a legmegfelelőbb a mandarinos, vaníliás, trópusi komlós, mézes bázisú aromahalmaz jellemzésére, melyben nagyszerű harmóniát sugalmazva mutatkoznak meg a komlótól vezérelt komponensek és a belga sajátosságokkal felvértezett illatjegyek. Krémes szerkezete szinte haraphatóvá teszi a testet, kellően élénk zamatai felpezsdítik az ízfolyamot, mely már önmagában, az elnevezése által is kellően különlegesnek hat, belekóstolva azonban magunk is meggyőződhetünk arról, milyen az, ha egy india pale ale-t tripellel kereszteznek. Remekül érvényesül a vadvirágos, szárazabb hangvételű komló jelenléte, melyet az édeskés malátaköntös teljesít ki, utóízében pedig mesterien keverednek az élesztős jegyek a hosszú utóéletű kesernye marconább vonásaival. Kitűnő ital, mind IPA-ként, mind tripelként tekintve megállja a helyét, s nem is akárhogyan.
