cranesareflying (50) - Evanston, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2002
Golden yellow color, flowery aroma with a white, frothy head, a light pale malt flavor, slightly fruity, slightly sweet, deceptively strong, fairly full and complex on the palate, a mild carbonation, this is built to last with a refreshingly thick finish.

Rodriguez (220) - Quito, ECUADOR - APR 22, 2014
Hazy yellow, good head retention, tastes and smells like a typical Tripel but subtle, spicy, orange, coriander, pepper, creamy, and the alcohol is well hidden. Well balanced beer, will drink it again, definitively.

not my cup of tea. Mi aspettavo MOLTO meglio, comunque birra tutto sommato decente e bevibile.

mathieuc (998) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2014
Chouffe in a brown bottle? A first to me! Pours a hazy light golden with a small white head that leaves some lacing. Nose is spicy and really just belgian overall. Taste is dry, carries some fruity but mostly spicy notes. Body is medium, alcohol pretty much inexistant. Carbonation is medium. Finish is lightly bitter and floral. A real good belgian ale!

Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en La Birra. Color dorado. Sabor a levadura, con un toque de lupulo, ligeramente dulce.

Muy bien cerveza para disfrutar en el sol. No es tan fuerte como mc chouffe de sabor. Se apparece mas a un duvel, pero con un sabor un poquito mas suave. A mi me gusta mucho este.

lucanna77 (26) - ITALY - APR 14, 2014
Aspetto biondo opaco, schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. Corpo leggero con sentori dolciastri. Alcolicità ben nascosta. Manca purtroppo di carattere e di mordente, non è più quella di una volta...

Living and bright golden-orange color, a bit cloudy. White and tick long-lasting foamy head. At the nose Belgian yeast, resin, herbal notes. Nice mouth, very refreshing: yeast, sour feel and a final cutting end of the palate. Very nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambro206 (32) - ITALY - APR 7, 2014
Uno dei pilastri della birra belga. Non delude mai. Bellissimo colore arancione deciso, schiuma compatta. Sapori agrumati, floreali ed erbacei con un pizzico di caramello. Rinfrescante a dispetto dell’elevata alcolicità.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma of banana, orange, grass, spices. Taste adds almond sweetness, wheat, more herbs/spices and orange and lemon zest. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Balanced bitter and sweet, medium long aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden. Lovely.
