4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. the pour is reminiscent of a belgian tripel. big over-foamy head and a rich golden-amber hue. aromas of bitter green hops overwhelms me. also, peach, mango, some passion fruit bleeds through as well. it’s very aromatic, and even contains some light floral notes. the taste is smooth, fruity, but well balanced and not overly hopped. the finish is ultimately creamy vanilla and green, tight hops. the journey there is quite a deep one. i’ve thoroughly enjoyed this ale. it’s nothing short of phenomenal. grab one, it’s worth it.

Pale golden color, high carbonation, white fluffy head. Smells a lot of hops, taste is also very hoppy with a bit of sourness. Reminds me something of maybe Orval?s taste. Strange belgian take on the american hoppy beers trend. Long dry finish. This one from a shared 75cl bottle, had it before in a restaurant in Utrecht and was an excellent beer to accompany the dinner.

Draft @Bierhuyske. Aroma is a bit sour, bit like cleaning product, don’t like it. Taste light bitterness

Backlog, tried the bottled version a number of times, always in 75cl. Simply a fantastic beer, right up there with xx-bitter as a favourite "old-world" hop beer. Hard to get around here though.

0,3l Flasche. Hellgelbes Bier mit heller Schaumkrone. Geruch nach Gras und Früchten. Im Geschmack exotisch fruchtig, grasig und angenehm hopfig. Tolles Bier!

More sour than bitter, but also with a nice caramel softness, Big mouthfeel but it’s not a beer with a long finish. Nice though to try the Belgium take on the IPA as it were. Pleasant but needs to be had with some kind of food accompany in my opinion that would help it carry and compliment more.

Slightly hazy golden beer with a nice white head. high carbonation. A beer like you wouldn’t expect from La Chouffe. Entirely different from what they make in their normal chouffe, the McChouffe or their other specials. It says hops on the label and that is exactly what you get. Hops in the aroma and hops in the tast, with a long dry finish. A beer I like, definitely the best Chouffe I’ve had.
