4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Bottled. A hazy and bright golden beer with a big foam. The aroma is spicy, flowery and malty. The flavour is sweet, spicy, but with a good hoppiness. Some bitterness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel and medium body. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at DeWolf’s Tavern in Bristol, RI in an 11.2 oz bottle. Pours an extremely cloudy, particulate-filled, golden orange colour that left a stream of yeast precipitating from the head down, that looked like a double-helix. The head had great retention. F’ing epic. The scent was of apple, yeast, mild spice, and orange. The flavour is certainly full of spice, mostly coriander, and a variety of fruit, including orange peal, lemon, pear, apple and citrusy hops. This stuff rocks.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Café Belgique, march 07. Fruity, orangey, spicy, yeasty aroma. Full malty, coriander, alcoholic taste with a honey, orange and lemon ending. Medium MF with some chewy malts and spicyness. Glowing orange-gold hazy color with a medium white head that disappears but leaves some lacing. A succulent, warming and enjoyable strong golden.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. 330ml bottle with no best by.
After opening the bottle it started to ooze foam out of the top
Pours a very pale, hazy, golden color into a Fantome tulip, with a frothing two finer head after a very gentle pour. There’s almost no lacing, as the foam just slides down the glass.
Smell; lots of spices are very present, with a touch of pepper and coriander with some nice fruity notes. There’s also a bit of a musty funkiness off in distance.
Taste; this is much more fruity in the flavor that it was in the aroma, with lots of tropical fruits. There’s a bit of pineapple, apricots, peaches and oranges. The yeasts come off as a bit musty/funky, and the malts and spices add some sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a lively mouth filing carbonation. The drinkability is really good, and I think it would be great on a hot summer day. This isn’t my favorite Chouffe beer, but it’s still better thatn most.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is indeed a very good beer, just a bit too sweet in the finish for me. Very spicy, fruity, very carbonated. Non-pasteurization gives it a wonderful natural evoluting taste and aroma. Taste it with a t-bone steak!!

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bouteille. Arome de levures, épices, agrumes. Couleur or légèrement orangée avec une mousse abondante qui persiste. Goût complexe d’épices, d’amertume, de levure et d’alcool. Tout se marie à merveille, équilibre parfait ! Bien ronde avec effervescence parfaite. Finale d’alcool et d’amertume. Très bonne bière.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy golden-amber with a creamy white head. Citrus aroma with a bit of yeast. Flavours of hops and spices (coriander?), with a yeast finish. No hint of alcohol warmth at the end, even though it sits at a cheery 8%. Really tasty, very unique, this is a lovely complex beer.
