look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Slightly hazy yellow color with white head. Aroma is grassy and floral with soft yeast esters. Taste has also yeast notes, earthy, slightly bitter and astringent. Some dirty dishwater off-notes as well. Medium body with medium to high carbonation. Decent belgian pale but quite generic and slightly flawed.

From the bottle, it pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Very light yeasty scent in the nose.Taste is also very light with a firm malt base and a touch of yeast and hops. Decent!

Clear golden colour, medium head with short retention. Normal lace. Aroma is yeasty, with hints of citrics and herbs. Not much here. Light body, normal carbonation, finisih has some citric but is mostly sweet.
Taste follows the aroma, yeast, malts, and notes of citrics and spices. Light refreshing, but not unforgettable.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

This one pours a clear amber, medium sized head, even in the la chouffe tulip glass.

Aroma, is a little sherbet dib dab (80's sweet) and quite floral, not bad, but not what you would want of a beer in my opinion.

Taste is refreshing enough, with a slight sweet maltness to it. It is not a world beater by any stretch, but for a pale ale it is decent enough.

Feel is a pretty decent, goes down well, aftertaste is good, with only a minor artificial sweetness to it.

Overall, I would call it 'Good', and a good beer is worth quaffing every night of the week, hence my Thursday night review.

Drank at Turbante and poured to a Chouffe tulip glass.

A: Body is crystalline yellow with a minor white head. No lacing.
S: The aroma is very strong on ginger, with a properly big belgian yeast profile.
T: The taste is very refreshing as this beer has a good portion of ginger on it, making it refreshing just based on that. But on top of that, there's a good old belgian yeast of a belgian pale ale with a good maltiness. It's really good for this kind if beer.
M: Body is medium low. Carbonation is medium. Alcohol content is unnoticed. End is mid bitter and mid sweet.
O: On a very hot day, I can't remember a better belgian beer than this.

330 ml bottle (stamped "06 2017") poured into a wine glass. Pours a slightly hazing pale golden yellow, with a nice topping of frothy white head and spotty lace. Flowery and slightly spicy Belgian yeast on the nose; cracked peppercorns. Light but layered flavors; mixed malts (wheat, rye), white flowers and herbs, light tropical fruit and citrus. Light, smooth and finely effervescent mouthfeel. Not as full or satisfying as the original La Chouffe, but a nice warm weather quencher.

Hazy golden color with thin head with good retention.
Aroma with notes of Belgian yeast, curacao, bread, honey and oranges.
Flavor with notes of medicinal herbs, spices, bread, curacao, pineapple, candy sugar, chalky yeast and pears.
Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with good carbonation.
This is a fruity Chouffe for summer with mild curacao notes. Good, not great.
