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.

Nice thick head. Aroma is dry and very lightly yeasty. Very spiced, not as fruity as i would have liked. Enjoyable beer. Light golden unfiltered color.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - DEC 4, 2007
Draught at De Baiaard, Amsterdam, 12-2-07. Opaque gold with a big and firm white head. Aroma is pretty dry and yeasty. The flavor is also restrained in its sweetness, with lots of spice. Medium body, with medium and smooth carbonation. I found it to have good balance and drinkability, but it felt a little bland compared to the other Belgian strong ales I had in Amsterdam

UPDATED: APR 25, 2008 This is a complex, balanced belgian stuff. Spicy and fruity, good aftertaste.Strong and drinkable, characteristic and fine.Drink it at a right temperature! It might be one of my favourite beers...

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2007
Golden colored with hazy appearance. Huge white head. Strong spices dominate the rich aroma, some duvelish notes with orange and milc alcohol. Yeast also obvious here, nice aroma. Flavor is also rich with same dominating spices and orange, surprisingly strong carbonation. Aftertaste dries strongly with yeast and spices, alcohol only slightly here. Quite Duvelish brew.

Nose of spice, light citrus, and yeast. Poured a hazy golden color. Refreshing for a belgian ale.

Nov. 23, 2007; bottle. This is a superbly-balanced Belgian golden ale. Fresh, fruity, spicy -- with satisfying malt undertones. Tiny suspended particulate matter is seen when holding the glass to light. Rating this to style (a style which is clearly not everyone’s cup of tea), I can find very little wrong with this beer, which easily works year ’round -- refreshing enough in Summer, and hearty enough in Winter. Highly recommended.
