4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Yamaya. Light blond colour with nice white head. Aroma is very Belgian! Yeasty, citrus fruity, sweet, herbal and a bit of booze. Taste is good too, initial fruitiness, citrus and berries, then smooths out into a soft yeasty and slightly creamy finish. No sign of the alcohol. Nice sweetness too. Really nice and quite difficult to pin down individual flavours. Comes all in a big tasty rush. Dangerously drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like the chimay white on crack - good crack. Aromas of coriander, booze, citrus, floral aromas and a little cardemom I suppose, though all I can distinguish is extra spices. Pours cloudy orange with good head and lacing, bits of sediment floating around. Soft carbonation. Nice find - hope there’s another one in the next 150 years.Awesomely cheap find at the LCBO at $10 a bottle. Every now and then you’ve gotta love it. Finishes with lightly floral scents of sweetness and booze.

750ml caged and corked bottle
Summerhill LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer poured a lightly hazed, red-tinged golden colour with a long lasting rocky head. Aroma is Chimay yeast, orange and apple notes, spices and a hint of alcohol. Mouthfeel is full bodied, with good carbonation. Flavour is light fruits, the yeast and alcohol are certainly noticeable, and a bitter finish. Very similar to the Chimay White, with the alcohol definitely more noticeable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours golden straw with creamy head. Big coriander and spicy/herbaceous nose. Taste has banana and a white wine-esque acidity with a thick body. Really herbaceous and spicy flavours. Not really my cup of tea, but I could appreciate it.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours cloudy but vibrant orange with an extremely thick white head - like marshmallow. Sits there for the entirety and leaves amazing layers of lacing. Nose shows coriander straight away. Quite spice driven with some heavy dried apricot behind, a touch of sourness coming through - maybe grapefruit-like. Also has some lemon rind as it opens up and banana. Taste showcases the herbal-esque spices. Loads of coriander. Lemon comes through. As it warms up, banana takes over from the lemon - fills up the palate. Apircot takes a back seat. There is a small dose of ethanol with a fair bit of warming in the aftertaste which is a little off putting but it’s probably my only qualm. Very solid stuff as you’d expect
