La Chouffe

Pale orange and some chill haze adds to the cloudiness of the pour. A thin but persistent head is present with some mild, fluffy lacing.

Aroma displays Belgian yeast character.

I didn’t notice much of the spice that is advertised, but there is a little hint of cloves(?) and some orange. A nice, solid pale Belgian with a decent kick too. Quite ordinary for a quality beer, but goes down well.

This was very expensive ($9.90 for a small bottle – yes I was shafted) and there are a multitude of beers that represent better value. Next time I’ll be buying this from a store and not in a bar. Store cost is nearer to $8-$9 for a 750 mL. much, much better value.

Finish was mildly soapy.
