Lovely. Large white head. Cloudy golden body. Makes me think "wheat-tripel fusion"!?! Tickles the sour/acidic receptors on the side of my tongue.

Nice beer. Good head, like a Duvel or something, and a really nice flavour - burnt fruit or spice or something. Finish is hoppy and moreish.

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2009 Bottle Blond, clear body. Frothy/rocky, white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, grass, citrus. Moderately bitter, lightly sweet flavour with hints of coriander an other spices. Nicely well balanced flavour with a nice complexity. Perfect session beer.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2003 Great floral nose upon pouring. Very lively at first but it settles well. Good colour that keeps the white head all the way down. The finish is citric with a slight hint of melon. Fine bitterness and great balancing mouthfeel of a beer with this ABV. There is no place like gnome

Dark golden color,small white head,Lightly malty aroma,but mostly i smellhop's and spice with a small hint of fruit,very small.Malty,hoppy taste with a spicey fruity tone to it as well,with the fruit being a mildly bitter lemon and the spice being undescribable.The alcohol never really makes an appearance,until you have had a little more then a sip then you feel it.The after taste is spicey and fruity with a slight bitter orange at the end.this is a pretty decent brew and well worth having more,but would be ard to drink in large amounts.

This is the best I had at Le mondial de la bière. But its no surprise, I was expecting it. Strong, nice head and a fruity finish.

Light orange with large white head that laced the glass the whole way through. Pine, hops. somewhat skunky aroma. Little spicy, some hops, more sweet and yeast, orange, just a bit bitter and dry finish. Very smooth and soft, got better as it continued to warm. The gnome makes this beer...

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
No hops, sprtizy sweet old wine flavor. Overtly yeasty & not for my palate. Too fruity & leaves stanky yeast aftertaste. Intstead of a hop flavor, the taste is watery.

Pours a bright amber orange, and even gives off a little citrus aroma with a mellow background of hops. Head is initially thick, but takes a quick hike. This is an excellent blend of light spice, flavor filled hops, and a balanced yeast and sweet alcohol finish that doesn't overpower. Cheers to La Chouffe!
