La Chouffe Belgian Blond Beer - 330ml bottle
This variant is currently sold out
La Chouffe is Brasserie d’Achouffe's star brew. This strong blond ‘gnome beer’, first brewed in 1982, today accounts for 80 per cent of the brewery’s output. Not only did the brewers make history with this, their first Ardennes tripel, but the story of the beer’s origins also went down a storm: how it was brewed from an original recipe, whispered into the brewers’ ear by gnomes from the Houffalize area.
La Chouffe is an unfiltered blond beer, re-fermented in the bottle, as well as in the barrel. It is pleasantly fruity, spiced with coriander and has a mild taste of hops. A La Chouffe embodies 'the sun in a glass' with its splendidly intense golden-yellow colour, and creamy collar of froth. Herbal fragrances make for a playful entrance, then the citrus makes itself known, followed by the refreshing aroma of fresh coriander.
