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

Pours a slightly hazy straw/yellow color with a fluffy white head and a good bit of yeast in the glass. Nice funky grassy note on the nose, fruity esters, lemon, peach, peppery, nice fruity hop note, and a nice belgian yeast note. Wonderful, slightly citrusy, hoppy taste, lemon pepper and wet grass funk, some light tropical fruity esters, straw, and a little spicy. I think I’m starting to love this twist on the Tripel style.

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.

Cerveja de cor ouro e bem límpida, com média formaçăo de espuma e boa estabilidade. O aroma tem um leve toque floral, mel e malte. O sabor é inicialmente adocicado e após isso sentimos uma leve acidez e um alto amargor, que está bem inserido na cerveja. Bem refrescante e adstringente. No retrogosto nota-se apenas o amargor.

Hamirubi (298) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2015
33cl bottle at home. A bright, golden yellow coloured beer with some hazy gloom and on top a vast white firm foam collar. The nose is sharp and hoppy, with lingering citrus fruit notes. The taste is full of bitter and malt flavours, although the bitterness certainly wins the plea. It is a massive, strong golden ale with a rather aggressive hopped mouth only sharpened by a vivid carbonation. Not very sublte nor elegant, yet the yeast, herbs and malt notes make their way to the palate. The finish combines that of an American style IPA and a European triple. Nice, but powerfull and unsubtle.
