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

bonev (352) - POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Piwo lekko metne w kolorze zlotym z obfita grubopecherzykowa piana zostawiajaca ladny lacing na szkle. W aroma mieszanka belgijskich przypraw i chmieli ze slodowa podbudowa. Sa cytrusy, kwiaty i karmel. W smaku troche nieulozone, wszystko dosc mocno wymieszane troche gryzie sie ze soba. Dosc gladkie i pelne z goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie. Bardzo duzo sie dzieje, taki kontrast pomiedzy lekka slodycza, ostrymi przyprawami i alkoholem.

Dorqui (2201) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 26, 2016
Bottled 0,33L. Bright and hazy golden yellow color, much bulky head of long duration and good bubbly aspect. Fresh and crisp nose, much rich with rumors of cellar, alcohol, yeasr, white aged flower. Much lively and crisp mouth, elevated alcoholic percetion with refreshing and sweetish final.

Zarrach76 (34) - FRANCE - OCT 19, 2016
Blonde paille presque translucide surmontée d’une grosse mousse avec de grosses bulles. Au nez, du houblon et du houblon ! Bien floral, épicé, poivré, boisé (résineux)... Derrière, on distingue nettement le caramel, le sucre candi, la cannelle... L’alcool est discret malgré les 9%. Un nez ferme, assez simple mais savoureux. En bouche, la première gorgée laisse exploser les houblons. Amertume moyenne, carbonatation assez faible, des céréales modérément torréfiées, pas trop sèche. L’alcool est incroyablement discret, voir inexistant. La seconde gorgée confirme la première et révèle un peu plus les malts. L’amertume est toujours aussi contrôlée. On a ici le mélange typique d’une blonde forte belge et d’une simple IPA. La finale s’arrête sur d’autres saveurs houblonnées, différentes des premières et nettement plus gourmandes. Deuxième effet plutôt sympathique ! C’est direct, simple, sans fioriture, équilibré, mais efficace car elle se boit avec un certain plaisir. Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

davidezdonz (332) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - OCT 11, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before end date of November 2016 and poured into a d’Achouffe tulip glass. It poured a cloudy pale blonde colour with a big three finger white head that had great retention and left nice lacing. Aromas of Belgian yeast and banana along with pear, apple and a hint of pine. Tastes piney, bitterness and lightly spicy followed by light banana and honey sweetness. Dry, crisp, medium bodied with moderate tingly carbonation. Overall a nice solid brew that hides the alcohol well.

Tognetta (747) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 8, 2016
Laranja de leve turbidez, sedimentos suspensos, espuma branca de boa formação, irregular, baixa persistência. Aroma remete a mel, levedura. No paladar o amargor da as caras em média intensidade, dulçor em segundo plano. Corpo médio e baixa carbonatação. Final misto de lúpulo cítrico e levedura, um ótimo exemplar belga.
