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.

A - cloudy straw yellow with a creamy white head that lingers

S - vibrant yeast, lemon, banana, spice, green apple, subtle malt,

T - fruity forward with banana, clove, and some good hop bitterness. a delicate honeyish flavor with floral tones that give way to a creamy bitter finish. Biscuity flavors mix with earthy tones to give a subtle complexity

M - Good carbonation and a pleasant mouthfeel

O - A nice brew. Somewhere between a BPA and a tripel, with a decent hop showing

This is the best Chouffe that's around. The smell is incredible, but the taste...the hops are a bit too hard in my opinion.

L: bright golden look, great top, small pearls, top lasts shorter than other tripels;
S: this is unique, an absolute impressive mix of all kinds of smells, under the hoppy sky;
T: the taste is in line with the smell, but much bolder. I cannot completely live with the hard hops. I've drunk now about 15 bottles in the last two months. I can't get really used to it.
M: very good.
O: this could be one of the best beers in the world, if the Chouffe-brewers would change the hops a tiny bit! I am very interested in that last improvement!
