Brasserie D’Achouffe brews four all-year-round classics and two seasonal beers: Chouffe Bok 6666 and a strong winter beer, Chouffe N’Ice.
Their most well-known beer is a great classic of the craft tradition. Belgian at heart, La Chouffe Blonde is a strong blond ale. With its 8% volume and a hint of coriander and citrus, it leaves behind a fruity scent followed by a slightly spicy and bitter taste. It is best served between 7-10 °C.
The other classic, McChouffe, has some Scottish roots, mirrored in the kilt worn by the iconic dwarf. It presents itself with a ruby shade and a smooth bitterness, accompanied by notes of anise, liquorice and toffee. It tastes best when served between 8-10 °C.
Houblon Chouffe and Chouffe Soleil are the younger beers of the renowned brewery. Houblon (hops in French) is, as the name suggests, a beer rich in hop. Expect more hop aromas compared to the La Chouffe, with more bitterness. It’s still well balanced with a higher alcohol percentage (9%). Finally, Chouffe Soleil is the lighter version of La Chouffe. This is the ideal summer ale: light (6%), cloudy with refreshing citrus aroma.
