11.2 oz bottle, best by 12/06. Cloudy pink orange with copious floaters and a wisp of white. Sweet nose of spicy hay, honey and roses. A yeasty tang but almost no carb. Medium light body; milky then some resin. Taste is yeast and mildly sour caramel with touches of apricot and ginger. Showing its age.

TaxiDriver (1678) - Stadland, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2007
Bottle. Part 3 of the Achouffe Christmas 2007 tastings. Strong hops, light bread, a little bit sour, light spicy. Big white foamy head which stays quite long, the body is of dark gold. The flavor started light sweet and gets bitter, medium lenght. On the palate the beer is light to medium strong, a little bit oily and dry with quite an amount of carbonation. This one is also a good one from the Achouffe brewery.

I’ve had this many times but never rated it. Certainly high on my list. Slightly cloudy but fizzy. Tastes a little like a white beer, am I the only one who thinks that? Lovely smell, light spices, sweet stuff and banana cake. And makes a great sauce. Very nice.

FatPhil (12760) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2007
750ml bottle. Muted gold, slightly cloudy, ice-cream float head. Very lively. Crisp initial hoppy aroma, spreads out into a pleasant sweet perfume, and a light maltiness. Soft carbonation in the mouth, despite its early apparent liveliness. Very mellow light malty body, sweet and appley. powerful wave of hoppiness follows and stays for a very long finish, even peppery in the end.

Great Belguim. A good interpertation of a strong ale. Sweet yet tart. Nice mouthfeel, not to dry.

On tap at Monk’s Cafe, Philadelphia. Nice amber color with a large foamy head. Aroma of spices with some fruit. Very nice flavor with a hint of sweetness. Dry finish. Alcohol is very well hidden.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 bottle. Body is light yellow/orange. The aroma reminds me of a cheap Spanish pale lager...skunk. Taste is smooth and delightful. Absolutely no taste of 8% abv. I really enjoyed this Belgian Strong Ale.

TET (2458) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2012 La Chouffe is nice an orange beer with a big white head. Aroma is fruitful, strawberries, fructose, flowers, whitebeer-like and slightly spicyness, coriander.Taste of lot of fruits, some coriander and meat, lemon, sourness, some sweetness and herbal hops. With yeast the taste is more balanced and not so biting. Lots of carbonation, but medium body is strong enough, and high carbonation fitts in this beer. La Chouffe is the mix of different styles, very refreshning, high-quality and interesting. Great, complex and tastefull beer!

Decent beer. Doesn’t remind me of a belgian ale. The aroma was like a cheap mexican beer, maybe due to the green bottle. Lightly spicy and grassy flavor. Not too much flavor or finish to it though. Almost no alcohol presence.
