New Brew Thursday: Achouffe Brewing La Chouffe

Achouffe Brewing La Chouffe

Achouffe, Belgium

Review: Okay, I'll admit it. I picked up this beer because it has the cutest little old gnome on the label. I was not at all disappointed by the contents, however. This "artisanal Belgian golden ale" is a beaut. With light citrus notes and a bit of spice, this beer is smooth drinking delight. There's a touch of bitterness on the finish, making for a balanced, quaffable beer.

The La Chouffe is an unfiltered blonde, very nearly the same color as Miss Elizabeth Bennett. She did not particularly enjoy her photo op...



Bottom Line: I enjoyed this beer. It's both light and easy to drink, while still complex and satisfying. I dig it.
