ASPETTO: biondo chiaro, leggermente torbido. Schiuma bianca, fine, abbondante e persistente. AROMA: decisamente speziato e fresco, non molto intenso. GUSTO: Speziata, abbastanza dolce, fresca, con bollicine che si sentono e che sono molto gradevoli. Una birra ben fatta, fresca, adatta per l’estate e per rinfrescarsi.

Goudgeel licht troebel, volle schuimkraag die redelijk snel zakt. Aromas: Citrus, lemoncake, fruitig en iets Belgische gist. Smaak: Citrus, kruidig, licht Belgische gist esters. De afdronk is licht bitter, ietsje wrang. Lichte body, medium koolzuur. Lekker zomers biertje.... Drink heel makkelijk weg.

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 3.4
Beginner’s Opinion: Smells of citrus, bit noverall not as aromatic as other IPAs. Has a nice mucky blonde colour and opacity with a strong head that collapses relatively quickly. The beer is a bit too bitter for my taste, and with 9% ABV, a little too strong for me. But it makes up for it with a full body and smooth flavor.

Robe dorée jaune magnifique. Nez citron, herbes, houblons. Les houblons en bouche sont merveilleux. C’est fruité, l’alcool est caché, la carbo légère. Excellente.

Sampled from 0.33 l bottle, best before February 2017. Slightly hazy, golden yellow with a white head. Sweetish-fruity, slightly yeasty-spicy aroma of banana, cloves, citrus, elderflower and peach. Sweetish-fruity, yeasty-spicy taste of banana, cloves, citrus, elderflower and peach, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Nice!

"Really easy pleasant summer beer. Sweet lemon cake and sweet spearmint. Like a belgian blond with some wit sweetness and a tad bit of dry hopiness in the finish. A terrific everyday brew though it’s 6% so it’s no slouch. "

N’Ice Chouffe 3.1
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at the conclusion of The Chouffe Party 2016. The pour is a darker mud colored copper with a thin film of lift kahko colored head that leaves some pretty good lace as it falls down. The aroma is interesting. There is a big exponential booziness that just increases the longer you inhale. It’s got a strange sweet malt thing happening, but it does seem a little inconsistent. There’s a light fruitiness to it, and then the booze takes over. It’s not really the best of things by any means. Ugh. The flavor is well, fuck. There is a sweet malt up front and then that just rolls into a heavy booze. All of the booze is spent melting your throat. The malt part of this is good. The alcohol is overbearing and dominant. The mouth feel is thin and light with a decent carbonation and the aftertaste is just all boozy and burning alcohol. Christ. Thank Jeebus that The Chouffe Party 2016 has come to its conclusion.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 at the conclusion The Chouffe Party 2016. Aroma is sweet malt, dark fruit, maybe a little thyme, smells like Christmas, very boozy. Appearance is dark brown, light brown head, pretty clear. Taste is booze, sweet malt, dark fruit, drying. Mouthfeel is medium body, light but crisp carbonation, very boozy aftertaste. Overall, this one could be better but is too hot to be enjoyable.

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 2.9
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at the resumption of The Chouffe Party 2016. The pour is a foggy golden yellow color with a thicker film of white bubbly head and a pretty good lacing as it falls down to a thick collar. The aroma is interesting to day the least. There is a strong lemon zest right up front and a lot of banana. It’s a little milky on a deep inhale and just carries a banana sweetness. Thank god there is no clove or coriander. This might be drinkable. The flavor is awful. Fucking awful. There is a big spiciness that just blasts you in the face. Lemon and banana are non existent. Hops are huge and bitter. The spiciness really gets me. There is a beat that I freaking hate. It’s metallic, leafy, spicy, and garbage. It’s got a sweet malty thing happening on the back end. The mouth feel is syrupy and not well carbonated and the aftertaste is junk. It’s spicy and malty and just tastes like garbage. Christ. Thanks a lot Eric.

Bottle shared with koleminer20 at the resumption of The Chouffe Party 2016. Aroma is banana, citric, cool mint, booze, lactose, candy. Appearance is dark golden, off white head, hazy, lots of floaters. Taste is robust. Pine, spicy, boozy, banana, hops, tropical fruit, bad. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, lots and lots of booze and pine in the aftertaste. Overall, if it wasn’t for the Chouffe Party or that damn book I bought, I would not have bought this one. Damn Abbey Tripels.

La Chouffe 4.3
Wow. How have I not rated this? I guess I just assumed I had. Most recently enjoyed a large 50cl glass in a bar in Vieux-Lille on a sunny afternoon. Pours clear deep gold with large white head. Aroma is bright, sweet, lightly spicy. Highly carbonated palette with spicy sweet character, lightly floral and crisp. Super refreshing, classic Belgian blonde.

Mc Chouffe 3.7
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at The Chouffe Party 2016. The pour is a medium brown, a little lighter around the edges, with a decent light cream colored head that remains as a film and thick bubbly collar. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of dark fruits present and a good bit of sweetness. There is a light candy, and a good malt profile. A metallic bit exists on the back end and I’m not really feeling it. It’s more like a crappy barleywine than a Belgian brown. The flavor is more malt and bitter. There is a heavy booziness and a strong wheat and malt. The dark fruits are lighter in presence, but the candy takes more hold. It’s a heavy flavor. The metallic is still present and it’s got a lingering bitterness. The alcohol is really sharp. The mouth feel is decent. There is a viscosity that’s nice and the carbonation is a little more effervescent than I’d like it to be. There is a lingeringly bitter metallic wheat and booze to finish this one out. It’s not too bad, but not quite what I was expecting that’s for sure. Drinkable, but not overly great

Taste is metallic, sharp, figs, raisins, booze, robust, dark fruits, wheat at the end. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, metallic wheat and robust malt aftertaste.

Taste is permanent marker, banana, clove, strong alcohol presence, tropical fruit, pine, yeast and malt. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy body, light carbonation, dusty aftertaste, some tropical fruit. Overall, the first sip was not good, but with a braced palate, it got better.

La Chouffe 3.7
330 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 at The Chouffe Party 2016. The pour is a dark gold color, hints of orange poking in with an ivory colored head that falls down to a film and leaves a light lace behind. The aroma is not that great. There is a big bready malt that comes through first and then a blast of coriander. There is a light hint of leafy hop, but there is no bitterness associated; it’s all sweet. A light caramel and candy exists on the back end, but this thing is a not good Belgian mess. The flavor is sweet and malty and a little hot. The alcohol is definitely here. There aren’t a lot of peripherals and it’s pretty basic. Malts, Belgian sweetness, and a bigger than expected alcohol presence. The mouth feel is pretty decent. There is a nice thickness to it and the carbonation is soft and relaxed. The aftertaste is a little dusty, but leaves a lingering sweet maltiness behind. Overall this is much better than it smells.

La Chouffe 4.3
Hazy straw color with weak activity. Foamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with some good legs. Aromas of fresh sweet grains, vinous citrus, and slightly floral. Flavors of lemony citrus, fruity ester, sweet malts, floral and herbal spices. Strong citrus sharpness balanced with nice malt sugar. Tasty, balanced, and super fresh. Smooth medium body with champagne like carbonation. Well intensified medium strength crispy clean finish, ending with a perfect touch of spices and some floral notes. Overall an exquisite craft having great freshness and delicious flavors. Quite accessible having almost no perception of alcohol and low on the spices. One of the best Belgian ale out there.

It is a bit like a saison. Refreshing, medium body and citrus with some pepper spices in the flavor. The flavor lacks depth and the mild sweetness tastes more of sugar than malts. That said it is nice to drink.

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 4.3
Excellent beer! It’s golden, almost no haziness at all, it produces a decent amount of head that stays there for quite some time. 9% ABV is wonderfully masked behind the lively carbonation and the amazing flowery notes, lemon peels and hops, but not the way too bitter kind. There’s also some faint notes of spices and maybe some tropical fruits in it (maybe papaya). This is a really really wonderful beer, a must try, especially if you’re into Belgian beers!

Light body and medium carbonation. Upfront taste of pepper, lemon citrus and malt. Light, refreshing but not one I would buy regularly.

N’Ice Chouffe 3.8
Bouteille de 330ml (best before end 06-2017), achetée dans une SAQ au coût de $3.65. Dégustée le 11 février 2016 (Trappist glass). Bière brune foncée quasi opaque. Mousse assez, col moyen beige foncé, persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur de fruits secs (dates, figues), de crème et de sucre. Saveur un peu herbacée au départ puis de fruits secs et d’alcool par la suite. Assez consistante sans être trop lourde. L’alcool ressort en finale sans être gênant. Aurait toutefois pu être un peu moins forte et plus savoureuse.

Bottle 75cl shared by Calisky. A clear golden beer without head !! Nose is on sugar and coocked fruits, almost no carbonation. Aroma is on ripped fruits, artificial sugar, ripped apples, what is this beer for ? I’m no a fan of Chouffe but this one is a masterpiece, this is a CIDER, just horrible and too sweet.

Bottle.Blonde. Pours a lasting head. Grapes and vinous notes in the aroma. malty sweetness, initially, but the dessert wine has taken over control. Indeed tastes like a diluted Sauternes, or maybe a demisec cheap champenoise.

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 3.1
Golden, almost transaparent. Big fluffy head, decently persistent, some lacing. Intense but not very complex aroma: resinous bitterness, lemon, a hint of spiciness. In the taste: crackery malts foundation, dominant herbal and resinous bitter notes, lemon. Dry finish, bitter aftertaste. Alcohol is very well hidden. Gets boring pretty soon. Full body and medium to high carbonation, still quite smooth in the mouth but a bit heavy on the stomach. Decent, just not much going on

Chouffe Bok 6666 3.9
The beer has a nice bok beer look. The beer pours a thick layer of fluffy almond colored foam. The majority of the foam collapses over time, but a rather thick layer of soft creamy foam remains on top of the beer. The beer has a nice brown color. I can’t see the color of clarity very good, because I’ve poured the beer in a stone La Chouffe cup. The smell of the beer is very nice. The smell has a delicious typical bok aroma. It is both sweet and bitter. I smell a delicious combination of roasted barley, some licorice, caramel and toffee. The bitterness of the roast and licorice is in good balance with the caramel sweetness. Combine this with a minimal sour touch of the licorice and you have wow. The beer also had a good load of alcohol. This gives the beer that typical warming sensation a good bock beer should have. The taste has many aspects of the smell. It is slightly less strong though. There is the little roast and sweet caramel and toffee. The licorice is almost not tastable. The mouth sensation, and than especially the aftertaste, is a bit dry. This is a bit disappointing. The taste and mouth feeling don’t comply with the smell. Besides that, a very nice beer.
