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.

750mL gusher all over my table. then into tulip.

A: a very hazy yellow with a generous cloudy white head sitting on top. good retention and lacing.

S: very earthy and fruity. very fruity. grapes. bready as well. an almost sourdough-like smell. good hoppy aroma, all the while a fruity belgian yeast is throughout.

T: the hops are deliciously present. grapefruit and floral. tastes rosey. the bitterness is thorough, start to finish.

M: a refreshing carbonation on a full body.

D: one of the better BIPA's ive had. great flavor, good nose. very hoppy throughout. a good belgian that is pretty easy to find. go get one.
