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.

fiulijn (19119) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2005
Cloudy amber color, poor head. The aroma is malty and herbal, yeasty; nice but strange. Some malt and caramel, some herbs, too dry for its strength. Drinkable but not impressive.

madsberg (11369) - Søborg, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2005
Bottled: Orange/amber coloured. Unclear. Spice, coriander, citrus and banana in the aroma. Flavour is yeasty, loaded with alcohol and has some bananaflavours. Ends on a light spiced and malty note, but the flavours are quickly diminishing. Is quite refreshing, but dosn’t match its belgian brother.
