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.

First I'll admit that I'd been walking around Philly in the July 6th heat and was more than ready for a beer.

This beer is amazing! It was delicious and I cannot wait to see if my local shops carry it. There is nothing I could say negative about it. It was crisp, wet, delicious, extremely well balanced--not a hint of its 9% ABV. I could have easily pounded 6 of these had it not been for the 8 oz glasses and the price tag. If you see this on tap at your local dive, it's a MUST-HAVE!

A-A Milky Yellow/Gold
S-Wonderful citrus-y pine (no smell of alcohol)
T-Awesome. It was so well balanced. Sweet and resin-y at the same time. No hint of its high ABV.
M-Wet and refreshing. It had a nice fullness/creaminess to it.
O-You've got to get this.
