This is a nice way to start off Valentines day weekend.
Per the bottle description:
"This Belgian micro brewery crafts La Chouffe with local Ardennes' spring water, top fermenting yeast, Pilsner malts and English Golding & Saaz hop and coriander for spice. Double fermentation produces natural carbonation and a small yeast deposit (lees) on the bottom of the bottle."

lovers Nirvana. Amie and I had the 4 tester at Brasseurs de la Grand-
Place this is a bar and brewery in the heart of the square "Grand
Place" a tourist area where the streets are closed to traffic and
there are tons of bars and restaurants. We had the 4 tastes of the
beers they brew. They were a blond, a dark, tripel, and a raspberry.
All good except the raspberry. The blond and tripel being my favorite

Paulaner which is a Munich Geman beer. Now a 1664 which is a really
popular French beer. So popular you can buy it in a can at Mc Donalds
in a can. The Grimbergen was served with a lemon it was a wheat beer
which is our favorite.

Hoegaarden better than Duvel. We decided to expand the competition to
increase the complexity. So we did a blind folded taste test of
Hoegarden, Blue Moon, Belguim Sunshine Wheat, Duvel, and Bud Light.
We both participated in the test. We both picked Hoegaarden as our
favorite. Hoegaarden won however we both thought it with Bluemoon.
It was challenging, but one of the most identifiable beers was the bud
light. It has no aroma, it does not have any taste compared to the
other beers. It was funny to watch Amie's facial reaction when
drinking the Bud Light. She looked disgusted. The other beers are so
dynamic comparibly to bud light. Surprisingly the Duvel was second to
last place. Amie and I had a lot of fun with this test. I do have to
note the Hoegaarden glass was not the one depicted. We tried to keep
it consistent with the glasses. We cleaned our pallate with water and
crackers between drinks.

more investigation. It is very good. It is 9% alcohol beer which is
nice. It is only $6 dollars a large 750ml bottle at Dierbergs. Amie
said it is very lemony. I am going to keep it at 4 stars for now.
Amie says she likes the Maudite the best, and she is the Unibroue
expert in this couple.

the best but it gets 4 stars out of 5. One reason I bought this beer
is it is from Belguim, which I will be visiting in May. I paid
$9.49 for the bottle at Dierbergs. The bottle had 1pt/9.4 oz. or
25.4oz. in a bottle. You might think that is alot for a beer but keep
in mind this is a high alcohol content beer 10% alc that has a strong
flavor. So comparitvtely you might spend that much on a bottle of
wine that has a similar alcohol content. Per the bottle: "Maredsous
Triple is a golden-bodied Belgian Triple with festive sparkle, creamy
body, and luscious head. Brewed following Benedictine tradition under
the supervision of Abbaye de Maredsous, this fine ale has been bottle-
refermented and aged for two months."
