Bottle. Aroma is quite nice but a little predictable I guess. Wheaty, lemony and herbal, coriander I guess. Taste is less interesting but it’s still nice. Dry and with a bitterness at the end. Quite wheaty but not with a great deal of taste. Alright.

thellgren (789) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Lohjantähti, Lohja. Aroma has citrus (hops). Appearance is pale and clear with a nice head. Well, looks like a lager, but... This is like Belgian take an APA. Citrus tasting hops and quite thirst quenching. No taste of alcohol despite the 6% ABV.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2016
Pallido biondo paglierino, schiuma fragile bianca e saponosa. Erbacea, floreale, limone, malto, riso, un tocco di miele: una belgian ale classica, leggera, fresca e beverina ma un po’ acquosa.

Beers0mniac (108) - Joensuu, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of citrus, yeast, flowers with peppery notes. Taste has citrus again, mixed with belgian spicy yeast and little hoppyness. Very nice beer, excellent for summer!

MoritzF (9369) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Mildly yeast-spicy, subtle buttery and grainy pale malty aroma with notes of white bread, as well as delicately fruity accents and flowery hops. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Yeasty, pale malt character with notes of white bread, grains and flowery hops; moderately sweet and slightly bitter hoppy finish, again with a flowery hoppy touch. Okay. 30.VI.15

33cl Bottle, For an Belgian ale it tastes a lot like an IPA. It’s an ok beer but defintly nog Chouffe’s best.

KyotoLefty (9140) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya, as Chouffe Soleil 150. Label commemorates 150 years of Belgian-Japanese relations. Looks the same as the regular Soleil, but not sure. Spicy, citrus nose, orange, lemon, pepper, biscuity malts. Hazy bright gold with a medium, fine head. Very lemony and tart, orange peel, rich biscuity malt, a touch of honey, some spice. Nice citrus flavors win the day. A bit too sweet, and too much spice, but nice enough on a sunny day.
