I've been dying to try this beer, lots of hype built up around it... lets see if it lives up to it!

Pours a hazy pale copper color and makes a rediculous ammount of head. I poured this into a Duvel glass and it would seem that I just poured a Duvel. Head retention is fantastic, huge rocky clumps of foam and a really thick sticky lacing on my glass. So thick infact, if you swirl the glass full of head... the head does not move. I am impressed. Well done little Chouffe.

Aroma is dominated by spicy and earthy saaz hop aromas that dance with yeast undertones. Its definitely one of the hoppiest belgian brews I've ever put my nose to.

The flavor has an assertive hop bitterness, slightly asstringent, nice malty wheat qualities, a hint of bubblegum, earthy yeast, bit of funk. Super complex.

Full bodied, peppery crisp carbonation yet drinks smooth and finishes clean and dry.

Well done Chouffe. You win this time you rogue.
