Blonde/yellow color, nice big white head. It kind of taste like a usual strong blond belgian beer; much carbonation and quitte a lot of bitterness. It does also have a hoppy sweetness-thing, that I like, in the background

11.2 oz single bottle from Biggie Wine & Liquor. Hazy orange appearance with a white head. Spicy hops, Belgian yeast, floral notes, toasted grains, herbs and light citrus zest. Moderately sweet with mild bitterness. Medium body with a nice fluffy feel. Pretty enjoyable and easy to drink for a BSA.

Weinig mooier dan een La Chouffe in zijn eigen glas. Elke slok lekker vol in de mond die goed blijft hangen. Een heerlijk genietbiertje.

Kauge (410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2015
33 cl bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (around € 2.60 I think). Translucent pale golden colour; the nicely retaining and lacing head is big and white. Pleasant warming white bread, fruitiness and yeast, and sightly spicy aroma. Quite a lot of pungent alcoholic and spicy zing coming from the foam later on. Taste is fruity, not overly sweet, white bread softness, quite restrained, with a bit of warming alcohol. Nice hop bitterness and distinct coriander spiciness in mid-taste and finish. Body and carbonation medium, texture soft with a bit of graininess. Overall okay, a good and dangerously quaffable beer, but also uninteresting I think.

Kleurplaatje (56) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a stable, white, thick, cloudy head. Beautiful looking beer. Amazing appearance. Aroma is fruity with some malty kicks in it. Yeasty, spicy as well. Loveable nose. Taste is fruity and sweet with a bready tone. Spicy kicks as well. Clear notes of the fruit (banana, citrus), coriander, pepper and a small dash of alcohol. Aftertaste is warming and sweet and is lived up by the carbonation. Normally I do not like the carbo bite, but here it works out fairly well, resulting in a nice sweetish and fruity aftertaste. The Chouffe is quite ful bodied, has a sticky texture and is quite lively carbonated. This could be a bit too much, but I think this is one of those brews in which that wouldn’t be that much of a problem. It just works out pretty fine. Really a good Belgian, which will never disappoint me.
