La Chouffe

La Chouffe

La Chouffe has a quintessentially Belgian character, with spiced, bready notes, coriander and a touch of lemon. Hazy gold and unfiltered, its light refreshing nature masks a robust 8% ABV. Brasserie d'Achouffe is named after the Chouffe gnomes rumoured to live in the Ardennes mountains. According to legend, the magical gnomes ran their own brewery in the hills for many years until disaster struck and the brewery was destroyed. The story goes that one of these little brewers visited the founders of Brasserie d'Achouffe and gave them the recipe for the beer which would henceforth be known as La Chouffe. You've heard of home brew, but have you ever tried gnome brew?! La Chouffe won a Silver Medal at the World Beer Awards 2016 in the category Belgium - Belgian Style Tripel.

  2. Just brilliant. No more to be said! Review by Ramsfan
    Rating

    Excellent beer, lovely taste not bitter at all. Eminently quaffable. Be careful it bites you if you drink too much. It's worth the headache though. (Posted on 10/04/2017)

  3. Golden and lively Review by Twedds
    Rating

    Golden clear body and fruity citrusy smell. Sweet taste with nice floral tone hint of alcohol. Medium body with lively carbonation. Good stuff. (Posted on 30/03/2017)

    Very good, easy to drink despite strength, would definitely order again. (Posted on 28/12/2016)

  5. One of my favourite blondes. Review by JL
    Rating

    This beer has a very smooth and distinctive taste that is an excellent choice when out enjoying the sunshine. Be careful though, it is a very easy to drink and the long tasty finish will leave you wanting more. One of my favourites. (Posted on 30/08/2016)

  6. Classic Review by Bancini
    Rating

    Refreshing Belgian blonde with dry and spicy flavours, strong without tasting too alcoholic. (Posted on 16/08/2016)

  7. A deceptive sessionable taste hides its strength Review by Coppi
    Rating

    I was lucky to first drink this beer in La Alpujarra region in Spain, it was a refreshing ale after a long days walk. (Posted on 02/08/2016)

  8. First belgian strong pale ale Review by Sam
    Rating

    The first thing that hit me on the nose was a subtle pepper, spicy smell followed by esters, yeast, banana and clove. The taste was a rich, almost creamy esque with notes of spice, corriander, pepper, malt, bread, mild hop and fruit, with some background citrus. Deceptively easy to drink, for me this would be a late night sipper infant of the TV instead of a refreshing summer beer. Unique and excellent. (Posted on 23/06/2016)

  9. Chouffe-ing lovely! Review by Beer In The Bay
    Rating

    Wasn't expecting to like this at all (ordered it for my mate who was visiting) but how wrong i was. Blonde in colour, with a taste all of its own, and a slight sweetness. Really drinkable so beware the strength! (Posted on 13/06/2016)

  10. Classic Belgian Beer Review by Kaz
    Rating

    One of the staple Belgian beers and one of their best as well. Quite strong, but not in a bad way, this blonde beer always goes down a treat. You can get a lovely glass to go with it as well! (Posted on 14/05/2016)

  11. Zesty tones, undeniable Belgian confidence Review by Coops
    Rating

    Doesn't quite match the very best Belgians in my opinion, but is a quality act nonetheless. Refreshingly zesty mixed with a confident rich hoppy character. Sediment backs this up! (Posted on 14/03/2016)

  12. Spicy stalwart of Belgium Review by BTG
    Rating

    I always make sure there are plenty of La Chouffe along with the Duvel in the fridge, both a must to fall back on. (Posted on 08/03/2016)

  13. Great beer Review by Laura

    One of my favourite Belgian beers perfect for a warm day! (Posted on 05/01/2016)

  14. The Taste of Summer Review by Shawn
    Rating

    There's nothing better on a warm summer day. Light and refreshing without being too sweet or give the impression that you're drinking anything other than a fine Belgium beer. (Posted on 02/06/2015)

  15. I just love this beer Review by AlexB
    Rating

    It's got that lovely Belgian blonde taste with no bitterness at all, very smooth, dangerous stuff! (Posted on 27/04/2015)

  16. Nice strong beer Review by Markiemark
    Rating

    This has rather a nice wheat beer flavour with citrus and some cloudiness. It is clearly strong and a bit sweet but not nasty sweet like some strong beers. I recommend you try it (Posted on 04/04/2015)

  17. A real treat !! Review by Stivvy
    Rating

    My two sons and I where knocked out with its distinctive flavour, probably the best Belgian beer I have tasted !! (Posted on 03/04/2015)

  18. fantastic introduction to Belgium Review by Timmark
    Rating

    A great introduction to Belgian beers, deceptively easy drinking. Light hoppy flavours but with the unmistakable Belgian finish, simply a must try. (Posted on 08/03/2015)

  19. Give a gnome a home! Review by Stephen
    Rating

    I love La Chouffe beers - this is a standard one of their range. Their winter dark beers can be very Christmas pudding and they have some nice Sol summer offerings that are lighter and slightly more sessionable. This is an 8%er and so needs some discipline but is very moreish. (Posted on 13/02/2015)

  20. Belgium in a bottle Review by Alex
    Rating

    I bought this after drinking it in Belgium - it seemed to be a staple in all the bars we went to over there. Drinking it again brought back good memories! A lovely refreshing beer drank on it's own or with some grub (mmm Belgian fries!) (Posted on 25/01/2015)

  21. A lovely light and moreish beer Review by Quitekate
    Rating

    A fabulous classic Belgian beer that I keep coming back to and never tire of. No sip tastes the same but each is wonderful. (Posted on 07/01/2015)

  22. good quality easy going typical Belgian taste Review by Dave
    Rating

    This is a good quality place to start if you have never had a Belgian Beer before. It has a typical Belgian tasty finish. (Posted on 01/01/2015)
