A few weeks back, we though spring had sprung and — THWAP! — we were hit with cold, wet weather. That Mother Nature, she can be cruel.
While staggering about the local WHOLE FOODS grocery, we saw a 25.4 ounce, green bottle of N’ICE CHOUFFE LIMITED EDITION 2007 (10%ABV). “Ale brewed with spices (thyme and curacao peel)” — it sounded right for the weather, and it was. One bottle provided a lovely after dinner tipple for two of us. It was a dark, malty brew enlivened with light yeast, and almost berry- or grape-like flavors. Yummy, like the other CHOUFFEs that we have tasted. (Rating ****1/4)
