Notes / Commercial Description:
The HOUBLON CHOUFFE was brewed for the first time in 2006. It is an ‘Indian Pale ale’ type of beer, with a harmonious balance between a marked bitterness (three types of hops are used to make it) and a pleasant fruitiness. The HOUBLON CHOUFFE is unfiltered, and re-fermented in the bottle as well as in the keg.

12/7/17: 8 ounce draft pour into snifter at Monk's Pub. Very light golden pour. Lemon hops aroma. Light lemon and hops taste, light bitterness, good balance. Thin mouth feel, overall good offering.

(11.2 oz bottle, best before 08-2018 ... carefully poured, sans lees, into Chouffe tulip)

L: crystal-clear, yellow gold liquid, with minimal yeasty flecks afloat... messy, spitty crest of white foam, thick barnacles of lace

S: rose petals, lemon/lime hops, hint of coriander with its subtle peppery spice... delicate, almost pale-lager-like malt poking through... flowery aroma wafts back up out the nostrils after each sip... not a terribly powerful smell overall

T: thick mist of flowery, citrus-zesty, lightly earthy hops float by at the onset, with a bright, pungent peppery-spicy alcohol and coriander following close behind, flooding the palate, then just as quickly drying out, leaving hints of the peppery phenols, a modicum of lightly-toasted malt, and soft herbal bitterness

F: light-bodied, crisp, with a clipped sharpness and mellow warmth to its alcohol... after its moderately spritzy carbonation settles down, it shows a little frothy fuzz on its edges

O: I feel like I've had perhaps younger bottles whose contents exhibited more hop dimension and vibrancy in both flavor and aroma; adding the dregs doesn't do much to enhance ... this is still a fine beer, and I could see pairing it with maybe a salad featuring sharp cheese and/or grilled salmon
