Yellow, cloudy, a bit like a pear compote.
Head white, small and not very durable.
The smell is a bit of tropical fruits and citrus with a very low intensity plus delicate notes of hops.
Refreshing taste, light, like the aroma of some tropical and citrus, with no clear accents.
Bitterness in the finish dry, grassy, ​​pleasantly enriches the flavor Chouffe Soleil. Good, but it's not enough.

A cloudy straw color with about a quarter inch of head that quickly dissipated. Taste is citrusy....initially orange turning to grapefruit. Definitely a summer quaff for those that like fruit in their beer.

Sunny beer, actually not a witbier, but a belgian pale ale, quite hoppy indeed. It has some powerfull citric and pine aroma. Pale golden colour, strong carbonation. Cloudy as it's poured out.
Taste very interesting. It's bitter but it's mellow with a sweet touch. Not like an IPA, allthough the aroma suggests it.
Refreshing character. Crisp as it is.
Overall this beer is pretty much as it's name says: refreshing. it will be good at a bbq or on a terrace.

Picked up on a recent road trip to Belgium. 330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour with fluffy white head. Aromas of citrus, pine & malt. Taste is quite sweet, malty, yeast, grassy, light sweet fruit. Medium body, average carbonation, light bitter finish. Overall slightly disappointing considering just how great, La Chouffe, the only other beer I've tasted from this brewery is.

Belgian yeasts, fragrant foot, nail polish. Ripe pear skins.

Belgian yeasts, honey, pear skin.

Watery body with lots of soda like carbonation.

Got on Wish Beer, drank in Chiang Mai Jan 21st. Light, refreshing, well hidden alcohol.

Colour is yellow and cloudy, with a white, foamy head. Aroma is a combination of citrus and herbal notes. The hobs add bitternes to the taste, along with some orangey and floral flavours. A very balanced beer that is easy to drink.

I don't get why this beer is so underrated, it's actually pretty good!
And it's probably the hoppiest belgian beer I've drank till now!
It has a hazy golden color and a nice whitey foam, some effervescence can be seen.
Smell and taste are extremely hoppy, floral and fruity. Highlights for the notes of pineapple and the hoppy itself.
Body is medium and carbonation is high.
