N’Ice Chouffe 3.8
Lovely beer, fruity, yeasty and malty taste. Nice looking dakr amber robe. Lovely and dense foam, little brownish. Smeels a bit like some kind of concentrated fruit sirup, probably because the taste is pretty strong in alcohol and pretty sweet. Some kind of berries taste, maybe strawberry or some kind of wild berry. Very nice beer !

On tap, Beergeek, Praha. Seasonal beer only available until mid- February! I need to hurry! Very deep brown color, low foam left nice lacing. Stronger than it feels, one is probably enough. I’m happy I caught it just in time, will look for it again next winter!

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 3.4
Ik weet niet wat het is maar elke chouffe heeft zo’n raar aroma en smaak. Die onmiskenbare chouffe geur en smaak. Slecht is ie niet maar ik en de kabouters zullen nooit goeie vrienden worden. Bloemig, maar beetje zurig aroma, alsof het bier niet goed meer is, niet aangenaam. Eerste slok proeft precies zo. Gelukkig is de afdronk wel lekker maar om nu te zeggen dat die hoppig of bitter is, neen. Eerder een stevig blond bier ipv een ipa.

N’Ice Chouffe 3.8
Bottle@home, from Wine Spot, Cleveland, USA. Strong sweet aroma of fruits like strawberry and brown sugar. Some alcohol. Dark amber color with small light beige head. Strong, complex, soft taste of darker, still bit sweet berries, some strawberry, banana and malts. A hint or rubbery notes. Some alcohol in the background. Balanced with wide taste spectrum and medium/long aftertaste with sweet malts. Medium body with light carbonation. Overall, different, still high quality product that suffers from slight artificial (rubbery) flavor.

N’Ice Chouffe 4.2
Bottle from Wholefoods High Street Kensington. Colour is almost clear, deep red to chestnut brown with a off white to beige head which stays. Nose is fruity, strawberry, light Brett, caramel, bubblegum, toasted grains, light spice, light clove. Elements of a quad but with delicate fruit. Strawberry fruit is totally dominating. Really nice and unexpected. Taste is lightly hoppy, strawberry, light Brett yeast, bubblegum, toasted grains, dryish yeast, little acidic hop, little earthiness, candy sugar. Strawberry fruit flavour is delightful. This is a really subtle mixture of flavours with the berry fruit dominating. Delightful beer.

750ml bottle. Dark red-brown with one finger beige head. Fruity malty aroma with dried fruits, rasins, brown malts, spices and a refreshing light hoppy ending. Taste is dried fruits, bready malts, yeast, slight spiciness and light alcohol. Medium mouthfeel, medium-strong carbonation and medium lasting aftertaste with noticeable alcohol warmth.

N’Ice Chouffe 3.7
Une belle brune recouverte d’une grosse mousse beige éternelle. Les odeurs sont de dattes séchées, herbacées et de sucre d’orge dans des vapeurs d’alcool. En bouche, c’est particulier au tout début, ça ressemble à des herbes médicinales. Ensuite, ce sont des fruits secs, imbibées d’alcool qui brosse le portrait gustatif. Le liquide est agréablement soyeux, aidant à la dégustation. Point par point elle ne m’a pas parue digne de mention, sauf qu’elle fût agréable à boire. (MA 06-2017) (1717-200116)

Blonde dorée trouble, haute mousse blanche. Nez malt et alcool, notes fruitées de mirabelle, banane. La bouche est maltée et légèrement fruitée (saveurs de levures), bel équilibre, alcool bien présent, sucrée, peu amère. Le corps est rond, la carbo très bonne, la longueur aussi. Une belle blonde forte belge, désormais un grand classique !

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 4.2
Aroma - Belgian yeast, coriander, subdued citrus hops. Appearance - body is citrine yellow, with a little haze. Good nucleation. The head is bodacious at well over 2+" and white. Fluffy head that is rocky and laces like a ZZ Top Tour Bus after "A Fool For Your Stockings" Taste - brilliant mix of Belgian yeast, coriander, spice, and wheat that run into lemon and some citrus hop qualities. Good balance of these interesting ingredients. Palate - medium body, average carbonation, and slightly bittered and somewhat spiced alcohol nature.

0,33 lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe, Volos, Greece A very nice surprise from that little dwarf, sweet and spicy - the coriander is perfect in balance. It feels a bit like a strong weiss, it’s fruity and sweetand then you get a lot of spicy. Medium-high carbonation big white foam. Very enjoyable anc drinkable. Good aftertaste

Chouffe Soleil 3.1
First of all, I disagree that this beer is a Belgian Ale. It has many features of a Witbier, I hope someone from the technical team is able to change that. The appearance is formed by a small, white and frothy head, which is mostly diminishing. The lacing is fair. The body is light yellow, thick and clear. Aroma: orange, light hoppy, licorice, light alcohol - very sweet. Initial flavor: moderate sweet (citrus orange). Final flavor: moderate sweet light acidic;average duration. Palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderate astringent finish. 60s (as a witbier) usd6

Sample from HO1K. Pours a medium caramel brown with an off-white thin head of foam. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Tastes of berry juice and caramel with a hint of cinnamon and spices. Very smooth. Hides the alcohol very well. Pleasant and enjoyable. Not the best I’ve had but I’d drink it again.

N’Ice Chouffe 3.8
Bière brune assez foncée, rouge-orangée à la lumière, moyennement voilée, effervescence élevée, et surmontée d’un col brunâtre assez large, bien dense, mousseux et persistant. Arômes principalement sucrés et fruités, caramel, cassonade, cola, avec un évident raisin rouge, tendance cerise noir et prune. Aussi, effluves de levure belge typique, quelques esters fruités (banane, poire…), et un peu de phénols épicés (surtout du poivre…). On note quelques autres épices au nez (piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…) et un petit houblon qui semble principalement herbacé (gazon, herbes aromatiques, feuille verte…). Nez agréable, très belle complexité, intensité moyenne. En bouche, pétillement assez élevé sur la langue, breuvage mousseux, onctuosité moyenne au palais. Au goût, sucre brun (caramel, cassonade, cola…), fruits foncés (raisin, cerise, prune…), levure belge plus présente en bouche qu’au nez, esters fruités (surtout de le poire…), saveur de pomme assez présente, beaucoup d’épices en bouche (clou de girofle, poivre, piment de la Jamaïque, muscade…), alcool évident quoique tout de même bien intégré. Bière laissant une impression très chaleureuse en bouche due aux saveurs épicées et alcoolisées, houblon plutôt subtil, à peine un petit goût herbacé et aromatique lors d’une finale principalement épicée et alcoolisée. Bon goût, complexité très intéressante, intensité significativement plus élevée en bouche par rapport au nez. Bière fort chaleureusement qui atteint pleinement son objectif de «bière d’hiver» quoique je l’aurais peut-être préféré un peu moins agressive sur le plan de l’alcool. Très bonne bière!

Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel 2
Kolor : Niedojrzała pomarańcza. Bardzo ładna opalizująca barwa.
Piana: Imponująca! Pieni się bez końca i formuje wysoki kopczyk. Jest trwała, zbita i nie zamierza odpuścić z kurczeniem się. Cała armia drobnych ziarenek, które z radością otulają ścianki firmowego Tulipa. Krążkowanie lepiej niż prawidłowe.
Zapach: Niestety nie jest najlepszą stroną tego tripla. Jest zbyt lekki i ulotny. Na początku bardzo dziwaczny - coś jakby wędzonka? Ale skąd wędzonka w Triplu? Następnie aromat gotowanych warzyw! WTF! Potem lekki cytrus i przyprawowo-drożdżowe nuty. Wyczuwalny także alkohol.
Smak: Chmielowy, ziemisty, trochę przyprawowy. Dziwna mieszanka. Trochę cytrusów, ale bez wyraźnego wskazania na konkretny owoc. W kontrze drożdżowe, belgijskie nuty. Taka mieszanka Saisona, Tripla i IPA. Alkohol niestety również mocno wyczuwalny. Goryczka fatalna, szorstka, zalegająca, alkoholowa. Niestety jestem mocno zdegustowany tym piwem;(
Wysycenie: Wysokie.
Podsumownie:
Piwo przywiezione z Holandii. Kupione w największej holenderskiej sieci marketów Albert Heijn. Piwo miało stanowić unikatowy mariaż pomiędzy Imperialnym IPA, a Triplem. Tymczasem wyszło kompletnie niezbalansowane dziwadło... Nie wiem czy to wina nieświeżej butelki? Czy wad w procesie transportu lub magazynowania? Niestety nie jest to to, czego bym się spodziewał bo tak znanym piwie. Aromat bardzo ubogi, wady już w zapachu. Smak alkoholowy, trochę przyprawowy, trochę cytrusowy. Nie ma w nim żadnego pomysłu. Fatalne piwo...

Bottle at home shared with Thompson. Medium size head and dark brown color. Smell is rather hoppy with a little bit of sweetness. Taste gives the same hops mixed with caramel and burned something. Fine beer overall, just a bit shallow in its palate.

Bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep brown, with a medium khaki head that persists and leaves good lacing. Nose is licorice and spices, mainly nutmeg. Taste is caramel and chocolate, with some licorice and fig. Well balanced, smooth, with a moderately creamy mouth feel and a long finish. Well made winter warmer.

Bottiglia da 33cl...birra di un mareone scuro, non troppo torbida, schiuma di color nocciola, molto persistente e vaporosa. All olfatto si coglie subito la fragranza di erbe fresche, al palato fesca ma decisa grazie al grado alcolemico elevato. Alla fine bella amara.

Taste is heavily bitter but refreshing with citrussy notes and lemongrass. Lively carbonation. Overall nice and refreshing, massively hoppy which I love but can bee too much for some.
