Pours out a beautiful pale golden with a shimmering yellow body, light sparkly white head and solid carbonation. The nose has gorgeous fruity and estery yeast with notes of clove, coriander and apples. The flavour is rather sweet with light toasty malts and caramel notes. A moderate alcohol presence on the finish with a pinch of spice. Picking up some light vanilla and cardomom spices. Not as good as Chimay White, but good.

0,75 l bottle @ Vihreä Haltiatar. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is malts, yeast, banana and alcohol. Flavor is malts, banana and alcohol. Heavy carbonation. Excellent strong belge, the style just isn’t my cup of tea.

No es la mejor Chimay pero igualmente vale la pena.En nariz podemos notar rapidamente las frutas y esa levadura tan caracteristica.En boca es menos fuerte de lo que parece pero si sorprender a su hermana pequeña.Eso si,inmejorable presencia.

esox (1164) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottled. Pale and hazy beer has a frothy head. Soapy coriander and cardamom dominate are overwhelming in the aroma. Some fresh, orangey fruitiness on the background. Dryish maltness but there is lots of sugary sweetness. Quite alcoholic. Soapy/bitter spiciness highlights alcoholic sensation. Yeasty notes sre quite pleasant, though. Frothy mouthfeel. Unbalanced disappointment it is.

Bottle from Beerstore, Thessaloniki: pale golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of fruits, yeast, caramel, apple and grapes. Taste more of caramel, apple and yeast. Sweet, medium carbonation, long aftertaste. Very good anniversary beer!

Pale yellow with a lacing white head. The aroma is clean with Belgian spice, malt and some booze. The flavor is similar with just enough hops to balance the sweetness. An excellent strong. No trace of the booze in the taste, just a nice warming on the throat. They should put this out every year as a Noel beer.

Thanks to Moll for sharing. Served in a Chimay goblet. Full body than the normal tripel. Spice in the nose and back end of the flavor. Quite dry. Doesn’t all come together.
