330ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden-orange with a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of citrus, stone fruit, yeast and coriander. Sweet flavour of orange peel, caramel malt, stone fruit, yeast and coriander with a dry, mildly bitter, alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

DavidAust (173) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2016
750ml bottle (use by August 2017) poured into a snifter (several times). I wasn’t a blonde fan, but I must say I am a fan of strong belgian ale. The aroma was average but it poured a beautiful foamy golden colour and retained the head (until my wife came along and pinched it). Really hard to describe the flavour as it is subtle and complex with multiple textures and essences coming through and staying on the tongue well after the mouthful is finished. (i.e. a long palate). It didn’t blow me away as much as snuck up on me until I realised I REALLY wanted more, but the bottle had run out. Very expensive here in Oz: $16 for the one bottle, but I will but it again for a special occasion. It is worth it. Very nice indeed!

Pours a hazy pure gold with a tall, creamy looking eggshell head that hangs out and leaves some foamy lace. Nose involves refreshing zesty lemony citrus and spice, floral notes, sweet peachy candy, invigorating nose. Decently sweet, a fair balancing bitterness, a bit of tartness. Medium bodied, but feeling lighter due to zesty carb, bright, tingly, with a citrus and tropical fruity and slightly drying bitter finish. What a great brew. Drinks lighter than its strength, lots to contemplate, really upbeat and lively, just a great expression of yeast and hops in concert.

BBE 07-2017. Peruslagerin väri, iso hapokas vaahto. Tuoksussa vaahdon läpi vehnää. Suutuntuma hapokas, vahva, hyökkäävähkö, nopea. Jälkifiilis mietoa polttelua. Helppo kuitenkin juoda. Ihan ok.

La Chouffe est une bière blonde non filtrée, refermentée trois fois en bouteille. Elle est agréablement fruitée, épicée à la coriandre et légèrement houblonnée. Maintes et maintes fois récompensée lors de concours à travers le monde, la Chouffe est une des bières belges les plus appréciées et connues de tous, grâce à son lutin portant un bonnet rouge, représenté sur les bouteilles.
