Talk about taste progression -- on draft in Belgium, it’s so much about the corriander. In bottle in the US, the spices fade a bit and some nice maltiness comes to the fore. And after cellaring for 8 or 9 years, the spices are gone altogether and so are most of the hops, leaving a slight maltiness and a nice sweetness.

Hazy, golden colour in the glass with a creamy white head. Orange/citrus on the nose with hints of coriander and bitter orange. Alcohol is disguised well considering the high ABV. Medium carbonation.

P - Gnome logo looks traditional and slightly strange - probably wouldn’t of bought it if I hadn’t know about it previously. A - Slightly hazy golden hue with a fairly quickly disappearing head that was initially thick and white. S - Ripe stone fruit, orangey marmalade and citrus. Smells wheaty and not too far away from a witbier. T - Smooth and sweet initially leading to a burst of yeasty ester fruit and slight alcohol burn. Finishing notes of coriander and orange.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2017 Tåkete gul farge med hvitt skum. Lukter alkohol, gjær og noe honning. Medium fylde. Avslutningen preges av noe bitterhet og litt krydret

Bottle. Foggy golden ale with tall long lasting white head. The aroma is lollipop malts, spicy yeast (especially coriander), minor funk. Medium body. The taste is pretty much the same. Medium dry to medium sweet. Light ending bitterness. This is a Belgian strong pale ale from the highest division.

A nice golden honey hazy appearance. A little too sweet for my liking, but suiting the style well. A gorgeous Belgian. However, it was a little light in terms of carbonation. Sweet notes of orange, and bubblegum. With spice notes of clove and coriander. A pleastent (though small) aroma of yeast, spice and (even smaller) alcohol. Overall, not a terribly outstanding beer for me. However, it’s a perfect once in a while spring/summer beer. Will probably buy again at some point!

Aroma not very dense but nice balance between fruit and the jeast. Great and still not very heavy taste. No surprise that this is one of the most popular Berts in Belgium. Excellent!

D3 Rouen. Bière acidulée et fruitée, légèrement houblonnée, pétillante , dotée d’une bonne longueur en bouche. Un classique , une vraie référence.

A good looking beer on the site but with a kick on the tongue it has a little too much flavor after the first taste. Not my favorite Belgian beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What's not to like about a beer like La Chouffe? Looks great and has a refreshing taste. A consistently good Belgian blonde. The alcohol strength is actually masked quite well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
