Notes: The gnomes of Fairyland may be little, but they have big, very big, personalities. HOUBLON CHOUFFE matches their impish spirits. All gnomes, with their innate good taste, are in full agreement about HOUBLON CHOUFFE, which is flavoured by three different types of hops. This India Pale Ale is appreciated for its pronounced bitterness combined with the fruity tones of traditional Achouffe beers: it softens the strongest of characters.

Medium bodied with about the same for th carbonation.
Aroma is a banana, citrus peel and fruit.theres a sugary sweet floral,earthy smell which is really pleasing.
Taste is very similar to aroma but with a bitter citrus peel flavor showing up first and dominating. Earthy, floral and pine follow in the aftertaste.
Overall it's an excellent beer that was interesting and flavorful

From the stubby bottle in a snifter. This solid little Belgian IPA
pours a chill hazed yellow straw color with a nice head of white
foam that settles to a thick ring, thin clumping layer, and displays
nice light lacing. Nose of light mango, light pineapple, grassy hops,
Belgian candy sugars, and light yeast notes. Flavors surpass the nose
with candy sugars awash in herbal, grassy, and citrus laden hops
that have basked in the glow of cracker and subtle Belgian yeast
goodness. Nice mouth feel; medium light body, medium carbonation,
subtly effervescent and lively, and finishing with a sweet Belgian
sugar and balanced hop note.

Overall----a SOLID Belgian IPA with American hop flair.

330mL bottle BBE 11/2020 poured into a tulip glass at fridge temp 9% ABV. The beer pours slightly hazy in a light honey color with nearly white head. The head recedes slowly to thick cap leaving plenty of lacing. The aroma is moderate in strength featuring grassy hops, stone fruit and clovey yeast. The taste is semisweet with clove, pale bready malt, subtle stone fruit and grassy & floral hops on the medium plus bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with slightly above average carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, excellent. This is about as good of a Belgian IPA as you will experience. I was concerned about the best before date being 3 months away, but very fresh tasting.

Pours cloudy hazy orange amber with a dense creamy white foam head. Smells real citrusy with lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, some toasty caramelized malt, hint of banana, apricot, yeasty funk, spice, and earthy floral resinous piney hops. Tastes dry and refreshing with lemony citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, peppery spice, green banana, apricot, toasty bready caramelized malts, some yeasty funk, and earthy floral resinous woody piney hops. Feels medium bodied, creamy and airy with smooth moderate carbonation. Overall a nice Belgian IPA Tripel.

Solid light amber colour, foamy white head. Smells is fruity and grassy, some pineapple. Taste is quite strong hops but a sweet malt base, feel is super smooth and light, amazing for such a high abv. You can taste the spiciness of a tripel along with the hoppyness of the IPA, yet it's easy to drink. This is a great beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass

Look: Crystal clean straw gold with a thick white head.

Smell: Sweet honey malt, green a banana, peppercorn, bitter noble hops, and some hay. Smells great.

Taste: Up front is clean west coast hops with notes of grapefruit, pine, and grassy notes. Then come the Belgian golden ale with notes of baking spices, green a banana, sugar cane, and honey malt.

Feel: Surprisingly clean yet medium plus bodied. Medium bitterness that is balanced out by the Belgian sweetness. Clean carbonation and dry finish.

Overall: Awesome. By far the best Belgian IPA i have had. Everything here compliments each other and nothing is drowned out.

Golden yellow on the pour with a big pillowy head and lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet and fruity. Taste is sweet, fruity and hoppy. Carbonation is moderate and ABV is sneaky strong. This is a very flavorful beer and is well worth the price. I love this beer!

L- Super-lively pour, prepare to pour this bottle reeeally slowly, esp. if it's the heavy 750ml bottle! Pours clear, with a huge 6-7Cm white head. Slowly deflates over several minutes leaving lacing. [ps. 20mins later, in fact it doesn't really deflate much at all, at one side I've a 2-3 finger 'clump' that must be standing 5-6Cm up the side of the glass above the rest of the foam, that itself is now is still 5mm+ above the beer]. Tip: Pour slowly initially AND also if you have to top up the glass, even 20mins later from the same opened bottle!
S- I get grassy + piquant, the piquant reminds me of the pungency of fresh chopped basil. That was from sniffing the top of the head (still huge).
T- I see where the grassy comes from, I can taste it too. Then I literally absolutely shudder, as if the hop-gnome has shot a crossbow bolt into my upper chest. Swill around closed mouth = fine, but the moment I opened my mouth to 'slosh the palate' and get the full taste = Good grief! A bolt of HEAVY hops, but mercifully it came with a dollop of malty richness and loud liquor-like ABV% synchronised almost -1 second delay - in parallel that brought balance.
F- Different! Notably hoppy-dry coupled with strikingly ABV% fuelled balancing rich. Or maybe that's a balance between three points of a flavour-triangle? Another 750 of this I wonder if I'd care... hehe
O- I've drunk plenty of European Triples+Quads but the way this beer presents itself it comes over as one of the strongest ABV% beers I have EVER had. I mean even at 12% a beer usually doesn't hit the palate like this thing... does the IPA level of hoppping in this one somehow turbo-charge the ABV%? It's certainly memorable, certainly different, striking and dramatic; oh yes. Would I drink it again yes. And I'm not usually into 'OTT-IPA's/hop-bombs'... yet the ABV% smoothes that path in both Flavour+Feel. Would I buy it again? Hmmm... it's great but £9/750ml?... probably not.
Bought from BeersOfEurope (UK) 750ml bottle. BB: 10-2020
ps. Houblon Chouffe = 'hop gnome'. And 1/2hr later, after the initiail full glass pour, there is still a lone clump of foam the size of my large thumb, stuck to the top/inside of the now empty glass. All very different!

After being recommended to me repeatedly and vehemently by my brother, I finally made my way over to the local Total Wine, brought home a 4 pack, and chilled it down. It is a 9% ABV Tripel IPA that I poured into a pint glass. I have just gotten over a nasty flu and am still a bit congested. I say this for the record, because I may not be able to pick out all the nuances of the aroma and flavor.

Look-It pours a yellow-gold color almost like honey, but lighter. The head blossoms into a large white cap even with a gentle pour. The head is frothy and foamy like sea foam and is very white. The lacing is thick and drooping. At times, the lacing almost looks like beaten egg-whites, but it builds and stacks into billows.

Smell-I smell aromas of bubblegum, guava, pineapple, and a myriad of yeast esters.

Taste-I get bubblegum, banana, crème, guava, citrus, and pineapple. It starts out with citrus and earthy hops and then gives way to a plethora of yeast esters. The carbonation is medium, but well-tuned. The alcohol is not as prevalent as you would expect from a 9% brew. And I get from the hoppy burp a distinct flavor of apricot. It is medium-bodied, but rich and full. I get some indistinct flavors of hazelnut and ginger in addition to that apricot. The malts are honeysuckle, nutty, and banana-crème pie.

Overall- The sweetness is cut with a well-timed release of hops and is a rich, refreshing, and robust beer. It has earned the title of world-class.

Got this at Honor Wine and Spirits on Beverly. Only $3.30 each; you can only buy singles there so it isn't a bad deal for what you get. Poured into a pint glass, though a tulip would suit this better.

Look: Hazey straw yellow with a fluffy white head. The head is immense; frothy and choppy like seafoam. It is sure to stay put and drag heavy lacing down the glass. A pinky-thick cap stubbornly rests atop the light-colored body. The head is more enticing than the beer's color.

Smell: Juicy tropical notes bearing guava, pineapple, and mango. Sweet grapefruit, stone fruit, fresh mandarin orange, lemon, and a kiss of bubblegum invite you to take a drink. It's complex and changing, with a subtlety that eludes the senses.

Taste/Feel: Notes of guava, grapefruit rind, and pineapple. The spiciness from both the Saaz hops and the yeast underlines rye, lemon, and tropical fruits that are quickly balanced by a spicy tongue-tingling rush of bitterness. A bubblegum-like nuance from the yeast helps sooth the bitterness and then a subtle flash of pineapple. After the initial onslaught of bitterness, the complex malt character comes swooping in to balance things out. The malt profile alone yields honeysuckle, toasted biscuit, pale malt, and nutty flavors. After that fades, the resinous coating of bitterness lingers on the palate and tingles the tongue. The body is slick and smooth. The alcohol is well hidden, especially for 9%, but becomes noticeable a bit as the beer warms.

Overall: This beer is well executed and delicious. It is rich in both flavor and character. The Belgian heritage and masterful brewing are what make it so special and drinkable. At 9%, I felt warm after just one bottle of this great brew. I would highly recommend this masterful brew and I would rank it among Pliny the Elder which I have consistent access to here in Beverly Hills. Definitely pick one up if you can find it. I would love to try all of their beers.

Update: I got an even fresher bottle of this at the Honor Wine and Spirits and let me tell you, it is a completely different animal when super fresh and still bristling with the shocking array of aromatic compounds that it possesses. First, in the aroma department, it showcases a vivid Nelson Sauvin-like character with lychee and gooseberry leaping from the glass. This is followed by the same resilient tropical fruit characteristics with blasts of mango, baby pineapple, and guava. There is, on the tongue, less of the peppery and prickly nature that a slightly less fresh specimen displays. In its place, there's a medicinal eucalyptus and mint flash that is no doubt a primary example of some of the finest brewing on the planet that has ever crossed my lips. To achieve all of this immaculately executed flavor, balance, and uniqueness is truly masterful. I deeply respect this brewery and they are now officially top three, just behind Pliny the Elder and Superpower IPA from Comrade.

This pours a nice light hazy straw yellow with foam that you could float a boat on...thick and heavy. Niiiiiiice!
The aroma is somewhat hoppy dark fruit and slight belgian yeast to it.
As for the taste, it comes thru a bit peppery with a slight edge...not as inviting as the aroma, but yet very nice. Thought the hoppiness would be a bit smoother, than bitter, according to the aroma.
The feel goes with the taste as a bit on the edgy side with nice finish with the ABV.
Overall it is a nice belgian with different texture and feel than most...in my own opinion. Still a nice brew, please try it if you have the chance.

Moderately-high hop aroma of floral, citrusy, spicy tropical hops. Grassy aroma may be due to dry hopping. Medium light grainy malt aroma with very little caramel. Light clove-like phenols, and Belgian candi sugar-like aroma.

Moderately hazy, light golden colored, with a tremendous rocky off-white head, fair retention tha leaves a trail of lacing as it deflates.

Hop bitterness is moderately-high, with moderate flavor of tropical, citrus, piney, floral hops. Initial flavor is moderately spicy and esters, characteristic of Belgian yeast. Moderate malt flavor with moderately low grainy, toasted, light caramel flavor. Balance is to the hops. Finish is dry.

Best by 11/2019

Pours a lightly cloudy orange-gold body capped with a fairly rocky head of dense foam; great retention leaves a layering of clumpy, soapy lacing and a frothy collar.

Aroma presents a dense base of Belgian yeast and clove notes accentuated with bubblegum and floral tones, bready peppercorn, honeyed black bread crusts, and backed with a wider general citrus tone.

Taste shows a strong hit of boozy Belgian yeast tones upfront, flowing easily to an herbal hoppy bittering; bright citrus medley and stale bubblegum become more prevalent from the mid-palate onward.

Mouthfeel shows a medium body with fluffy amplified carbonation that breaks apart to a dry prickle across the palate; light, earthy/yeasty, and crisp finish.

An easily enjoyed dosage of yeasty bitterness and subtle citrus, but held back by a persistent boozy presence that really doesn’t mesh well with the softer aspects of the brew; a good Belgian IPA that could’ve been a bit more.

Pours a clear light straw color, big billowy white head that lasts a while. Not much to the aroma at all. Tastes like a light Belgian triple with a little hop zing to it. Esthers give it flavors of banana &, bubble gum. Slight citrus flavor and a mild bitter finish. Abundant carbonation. Overall a good Belgian ipa.

75cl bottle, bb in 13m.

Hazy yellow colour, impressive head of the kind that can grow out of a narrow glass if you don't watch it. Stays forever in intriguing formations, leaves persistent lace.

Aroma is a mixture of stone fruit and herbs, with some spicy phenols from the yeast.

Taste has the tripel sweetness, but in a restrained manner, at the thin end of of the spectrum for that style. On top of that floats the stone fruit/herbal component, and some hop-derived bitterness mixing with astringent phenols (clove, pepper).

Well executed, but I personally don't think the type of hops used / fermentation schedule combination really works. There is too much of the astringent/unappetizing/"yeasty" element, and the stone fruit is not enough of a counterbalance. To me the taste turns mundane and even a bit irritatingly simple towards its tail, diminishing drinkability.

11.2 is bottle poured into the Brasserie D'Achouffe tulip glass

The nose has some pretty serious, noble-style hop aromatics. Old world, herbal funk with honey soaked white bready malt.

Golden liquid with a classic Rocky white seafoam style head. Dense and clumpy foam stays high with fat lacing. Intricate and clumpy lace is very much like sticky seafoam.

The combo of sour-earthy and funky Belgian yeast (this yeast has Soo much character!!) And a dense layer of earthy/herbal/spicy hops really sets this off!! My two favorite styles comprise this fine ale, Tripel Golden hoppy ale is ....well, righteous.
A sharp, crisp bite, zippy and zesty feel, light but also lush and dry. Just right.

Deep flavors, wonderful complexity, excellent yeast character and old world style hop edge. Yes please!!

Decent brew. Was expecting more fruity hops to complement the traditional Belgian flavors, but they opted for more earthy/herbal hop presence which was a bit of a misfire IMO. Nonetheless, drinkability is high with nice carbo and zero booze. A touch thinner than the norm for a tripel. Drinks more like a summer high ABV brew.

1" dense, rocky, white head. Golden and clear beer. Good retention down to 1/4". Thick and patchy lace.
Very fruity aroma, some yeasty business that reminds me where it's from. Pepper. Clay. Stone fruit - apricot and a grassy hop back up.
Spicy, faint bubble gum, stone fruit - apricot stands out again. Spicy, grassy finish.
Light to medium body, high carbonation and a dry finish.
Unique beer, hard to categorize at all but very tasty.

Shall I compare thee to a Summer’s Day? Thou art as lovely, and as temperate. With the aroma of blooming Azaleas that give way to a grassy clearing, you are drawn deeper into the glass. Rich notes of loamy earth are accompanied by a fresh, leafy hop presence. And to complete the picture, an impression of cool Yuzu is carried along by a babbling brook of pleasantly dry carbonation. Yes, if this beer had been around in Shakespeare’s time, it would have inspired many a sonnet indeed...

Wotta week! Three straight days at the same substitute teaching assignment! Normally, I eschew such things and two is usually my upper limit, but this gig was too good to gloss over/past. I scouted the nearby bottle shop, Country Garden Six Pack, on Thursday & on Friday, I pounced! A sampler four-pack of Chouffe + a glass at a rock-bottom price! Plus some other Belgians that I had drank before. It's a Belgian weekend as the snowstorm & Arctic Inversion approach! I contacted Chris Brouwarts of Chouffe via E-mail, but I have yet to get a response. Onward!

From the Bottle: "Houblon Chouffe Triple Ale I.P.A."; "Houblon Chouffe IPA Triple Beer"; "On its journey across the globe[,] the little CHOUFFE wandered through beautiful hop fields. The overwhelming aroma of these little hop flowers such as Tomahawk, Amarillo and Saaz mesmerized him. Back at home in the Ardennes[,] he created a new recipe combining this heady array of hops with the depth and body of his favorite style, 'Tripel". Thus, our little CHOUFFE's new inspiration, HOUBLON CHOUFFE IPA Triple Beer was born."

I Pop!ped the cap on this one & having readied the glass that came with the pack, I was ready to go. I began with a slow, gentle pour into the awaiting said glass, but it was full steam ahead so I amped up to a C-Line pour. It quickly puffed up to form just under three fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head with excellent retention that suddenly exhaled & fell, leaving great lacing in its wake! Most impressive. The solid Gold (SRM = 5) color was equally impressive, bringing forth The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus for a taste! I have never been in the Ardennes, but I know from "Band of Brothers" that it is a pine forest. The nose smelled like pine sap flowing from a stand of pine trees as snow fell around them! OMFG! I love hops, I love their bitterness & their citrusiness & their fruitiness, but most of all, I LOVE when they smell like pine! Yum. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy, but on the approach. The taste was wondrous! It was like a decade-old throwback IPA with its intense pine coolness & mintiness. Dang, but this was tasty! The Notes mention a softening fruitiness & while I will give it/them that, it was still more like an AIPA than many actual AIPAs have been in a LONG time, IMHO. S**t, this made me want to go back & snatch up EVERY remaining party pack there! I may bring them to my birthday party next month … Was it precisely to Style? Hmm. I would say "Yes" since Chouffe is actually mentioned as an exemplar. Finish was dry, but not gasping. I was left with a cool mintiness that simply lingered. Mmm. YMMV.

You know, I really like La Chouffe and was excited to try this IPA from Brasserie d'Achouffe. I don't like it as much as La Chouffe -- I know, I know, they're different beers. But the taste is similar (citrusy, banana, bubblebum notes). This one is more bitter, and I don't think the mouthfeel is as crisp as I want it. Don't get me wrong: this is an excellent beer, and an excellent IPA in a sea of hop-heavy clones. It's distinct and well-rounded. I guess I expected something slightly different?
