I still mourn the discontinued production of Kwelchouffe, the best of the La Chouffe brewery. There is even a Facebook group called “We want Kwelchouffe now!!!!!” so I am not alone in regretting this unexplained and tragic event. The brewery still exist and produces other beers, including the classic La Chouffe mentioned previously. I was not able to grade it properly. I will try to remember to re-do the tasting next time. OK, I’ve drank it before and will do so again and I do know I like it, but I like to be formal on this one. In the meantime, here’s a review of two other products of the brewery with the devilish address.
- Mc Chouffe – disappointing. Pretty much charachterless brew. 4
- Houblon Chouffe – that’s much more like it. Asked how it tastes, the barman replied: grapefruity. Amazingly enough, it does taste grapefruity and its a good thing! 8
