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.

Cant beat the acl content of this lovely brown. Its the color of burn sugar, only slightly transparent. Very hoppy and delicious. Not overwhelmingly flavorful so can be enjoyed with a meal.

TAR (2729) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Cloudy garnet. Creamy ring with a broken, off-white foam layer. Peachy esters dominate the sweet malt underlay along with pound cake, perfumey alcohol, herbs, dates, and lightly spicy hops. Quite yeasty with a slight amount of must. Delicate body. Expansive, creamy carbonation. Subtle gritty yeast twang immediately matches the peachy esters and spicy hop front. Bready malts and date-like sweetness help calm the fruitiness as it gains a mild wax note. It almost loses a bit of body at the center, but the juicy hop bitterness flawlessly fills the gap. Nutty malts are brilliantly displayed underneath a score of cobwebby yeast and fruity esters. Finishes with the right amount of mustiness and flowers as the yeast films the palate alongside bright, juicy hop components. Floral and wax notes reside on the palate after the finish. Masterfully-crafted brew. In order to reach perfection, this only needs a touch more firm malt sweetness to spruce up the body and soften the fruity yeast notes. Otherwise, the alcohol is not even remotely a factor in the flavor dept. and only helps brighten the aroma. Thanks for this gem, Rasta!

Eructoblaster (4106) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2004
Very nice cloudy brown-orange body topped with a fair brownish head. Aroma is definitely spicy and carries some hints of herbs, hops and various fruits (grape, citrus, cherries). Taste is impressive. It attacks your mouth with moderate carbonation, the flavors (spices, hops, fruits, flowers) are perfectly equilibrated and the alcohol makes feel its presence without being too agressive. All this ends in a nice bittersweet final. That under licence brewed beer is a genuine success!

Thick bown beer. Aroma is so spicy that my nose was starting to sneeze. The flavor is spicy and very smooth and palate is very good in mouth. Surprising beer...well done.

Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2010
The aroma is similar to the blonde, but more like a dark ale with the same spices and delicious sweetness. The dark ruby brown color is complemented by the generous portions of sediment. The flavor is unique to the brewery, but still has the delicious spices characteristic to lachouffe. Tastes like an abbey single truly pleasant on the palate.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Couleur orange tirant sur le rouge, avec assez peu de mousse ou de bulles. Mi-mince. Au nez, Beaucoup dpices et de fruits, dont des cerises, des pommes, du sarrasin, des baies et du coriandre. Les baies (surtout les framboises) sont toujours prsentes en bouche, mais on dcle maintenant galement des bananes, et des crales se joignent au mlange. Armes complexes. Une brune trs solide, qui ne prsente que de rares dfauts (dont une dtection de lalcool), facilement contrebalancs par de grandes qualits : audace, intensit, relative accessibilit, et surtout des effluves trs invitantes au nez, qui se transportent pour la plupart en bouche. Adaptation trs russie dune Belge authentique.

VincentDamon (498) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2013
Bire dun brun noisette, pas aussi profond et opaque que les brunes belges habituelles. Mousse quelque peu fugace. Nez de levure, de fruits mrs (peut-tre la pomme, ou la prune, ou mme les raisins rouges), de sucre, avec un soupon dpices galement (poivre et clous de girofle, surtout). En bouche, cest sucr et pic la fois. Trs intressant en vrit. Got de levures belges et aussi de caramel rti. Bonne petite bire dinspiration belge qui respecte trs bien le style. Cheers!

Version 2013, dguste aprs un peu moins de 2 ans. Demble, voici un bel exemple dune bire qui mon avis est de loin suprieure aprs un vieillissement que bue fraiche. Fraiche, cette bire ne mavais pas plu donc lorsquun ami me la offerte, elle est alle se perdre dans le cellier. On ouvre donc car ledit cellier maigrit de jour en jour. Robe brune-orange trs claire, col de mousse moyen. Arme de sucre dorge, cassonade, pomme caramel. Des pointes de clou de girofle, alcool et muscade. Cest doux, soyeux, je suis terre. En bouche, pas de changement. Un lger malt caramlis avec des saveurs de sucre dorge. Une touche plus amre se pointe en finale qui semble tre des relents dalcool et de houblon. On peroit aussi les pices susmentionnes avec une autre plus herbace et pice dont je ne peux nommer. Un peu moins de saveurs de ce que le nez laissait prsager mais ca coule tout seul. Texture moyennement paisse, corps plus moyen-lger. Un ptillement fin et subtil juste correct.
