The first ale of the D'Achouffe Brewery, and its flagship,
is a Belgian Strong Ale whose recipe, the brewers claim, was whispered into their ears by A. Chouffe, the last survivor of a colony of brewing gnomes.
The brew, spiced with coriander and bottle conditioned, is a sunny pale gold color with a thick white head.
Aromas of citrus, caramel, mango and banana give rise to a more complex flavor profile as the sweet and citrus are balanced by earthy yeast and subtle hop bitterness. The finish is silky and dry and conceals a heady 8.0% ABV.
Named for Achouffe, the village where it began or (depending on the storyteller) for a colony of beer-brewing gnomes reputed to have once lived in the area, the
translates to "gnome" in the Walloon dialect) was founded in the late 1970s by brothers-in-law Pierre Gobron and Chris Bauweraerts, first as a hobby, and then as a full time venture.
Nestled in the green hills of the Belgian Ardennes, the brewery released its first ale to high acclaim in 1982 and has flourished ever since. A meticulous attention to quality, a tried and true application of brewer's savvy and innovation, and an irrepressible talent for promotion (the popular gnomes appear on every label) helped propel the brewery to its current success.
Today D'Achouffe exports award-winning ales to over 40 countries around the world and hosts more than 10,000 thirsty brewery visitors each year.
