BEER NAME: La Chouffe

BEER STYLE: Belgian Strong Ale

BREWERY: Brasserie D’Achouffe

REGION: Belguim

ABV: 8%

INGREDIENTS: Water, barley malt, hops, yeast, invert sugar syrup, coriander.

BREWER’S NOTES: CHOUFFE is an unfiltered blond beer which is refermented both in the bottle and in barrels. It is pleasantly fruity, spiced with coriander and tinged with hops.

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Hazy Gold, small disappearing head
  • AROMA: Fruity, subtle malt, coriander and spices.
  • FLAVOUR: Tropical fruit up front, with balanced malty back bone, some coriander and spice pulling through and dry slightly bitter alcohol finish that lasts
  • MOUTHFEEL: Light bodied, lively carbonation, dry, high alcohol finish
  • OVERALL: The sweet fruity flavours are well balanced with bitterness and the 8% kick definitely takes the edge off a hard days graft. Great one for the guests.
  • PAIR WITH: Sharp cheddar or Thai green curry,

BREW REVIEW RATING: 7.8/10
