Brasserie d'Achouffe Petite La Chouffe
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Brasserie d'Achouffe Petite La Chouffe.
From the Brasserie d'Achouffe website: “CHOUFFE is an unfiltered blond beer which is refermented both in the bottle and in barrels. It is pleasantly fruity, spiced with coriander and tinged with hops.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange color with a white head and lots of lacing.
Aroma: Banana, citrus, cloves, coriander, bready and caramel malts, Belgian yeast and a touch of what smells like white grapes or champagne.
Taste: Banana, coriander, clove, fruity, cinnamon, nutmeg, white pepper, bready malts and champagne like flavors.
Overall: Effervescent, dry and complex, Brasserie d'Achouffe Petite La Chouffe is a great beer. This 8% ABV offering is most definitely something I’d pick up and enjoy again.
