La Chouffe is een lekker biertje, voor zo nu dan thuis of op het terras. Vooral met het mooie warme weer

Poured from 330ml bottle nice and golden but less head than expected. Good spicy nose. Nicely carbonated with light mouthfeel. Good spicy taste with bitterness in the back of the throat. Goes down light and refreshing.

330ml : This is my ttype of thang. Loads of esters , lots of booze and a dry’ish spicy hoppy palate : a good old fashioned, unassuming Belgianbeer with creepy looking elves as a mascot. Huge white head above dirty orange looks real good in this tulip. Sellin’ this stuff there are peppers.oranges. Insence spice. fat yeast. Drinks with chewy bubblegum covered ppeppery fruit and just enough rich texture and hop dryness: A pretty complex but both damn drinkable beer: fucken hell this is more flavoursome than Iremember

One of the most beautiful bottles in my opinion. The beer has a yellow golden colour. Big white head and hazy liquid. Aroma of banana and orange. Very well balanced. Average carbonation. I really enjoyed this one.

First time I’ve tried this, and I liked it a lot. Cloudy amber with a lasting white head and good lacing. Coriander comes across strongly on the nose. Real dryness to the taste, from which come spice notes, subtle banana, slight citrus. Medium, creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

From the bottle. Pours cloudy orange. Nice big foamy head. Smells of wheat, yeast and a little orange. Taste is similar with a spice orange finish with some hop bitterness. Nice Belgium blonde ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

L'étiquette m'a tjs déplus mais décidément la bière ma plaît :-) Cette belle dorée non filtrée a du corps, de la mâche. Pas si forte, belle présence bouche, sans être exubérante. Hoppy très tranquille, plus ronde qu'exubérante, elle a néanmoins une réel identité. I like !

Bottle. I’ve sunk many of these in my time and am surprised it’s taken me this long to write something down. It used to be one of the attainable Belgians before the market exploded. Still tastes great and is close to my heart. Pours hazy Golden with a pillowy White head. Perfumed yeasty aroma with the promise of spice and coriander. Flavour still gets me. IT’s brimming with character. Orange citrus, spicy, earthy hops and a nice undercurrent of sweet malt. Customary dry finish. I’ll never go off this gear.

Light Hops, floral and some alcohol at the end. Very nice appearance, golden yellow colour and long lasting white foam. Taste is light cereal and ends in hoppy bitterness. A very nice beer to enjoy.

Een lekker biertje met een wat speciale smaak waar niet iedereen van zal houden, maar ik vind het goed.
