Like the Blonde d'Achouffe brewed by Le Cheval Blanc, this beer is not a copy of the original Chouffe family, but a beer brewed in cooperation with and in honor of the Belgian micro.

Slightly hazy bronze with a thin head. Smells sweet, a bit apple, caramel, definitely retaining Belgian features. The rich flavors, like caramel spectrum, finish quickly while yeast and a hint of alcohol remain. Some carbonation tingling away on the palate help out, but it is too hollow to bring lasting enjoyment, though there is some encouraging directions. And the 8.5% alcohol is really well hidden.

jasonp (1556) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - SEP 10, 2005
Clear dark amber with a small white head. Aroma of some wood and toasty grains. Flavor has notes of caramel, wood, apple, plum/raisin and a hint of chocolate and spiciness. Moderately sweet with a touch of hop bitterness and some alcohol in the finish. Medium, creamy body with pleasant subtle carbonation. Nice.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2005
Cloudy dark copper color with a fluffy diminishing cream colored head. Toasted wheat bread aromas, with some prunes and citrus. Tangy flavors of orange and toasted malt. Some metallic qualities. Raw hops seem to have a presence. Seems young and lifeless, even with a rather bubbly feel.

Copper amber brown with thin dissipating tan head. Aroma of caramel banana. Light flavor of mild spice, malty, sweet earth. Creamy thin finish.

Bottle shared courtesy of Fatty (thanks!). Poured a medium brown color with a smaller sized tan head. Aromas of earth, fruits, toffee and light spices. Tastes of pretty much the same.

Thanks to Fatty for this one. Pours a cloudy amber with a small head. Aroma of dark fruit, candied sugars and toffee. Picked up less in the flavor, but a bit of spices and sugar. A decent brew, have to compare the McChouffe to this one.

bière bien, meileur qu’une commercial. Se déguste bien, pas trop de goût amer.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 17, 2005
Cloudy amberorange colored with a thin head. Sweet yeast and fruit aroma, rather sticky and artificial. Yeast dominates the flavor with a sweet toffee tone. Quite uninteresting.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2005
More amber than brown, this stuff poured with some haziness and a puffy off white head. Aroma is malty with coriander and pepper. Taste is thick with some eartiness, malt and dry bitter orange. A bit on the sweet side with the alcohol nicely masked .
