3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle from Irma, Vesterbrogade, Copenhagen. Pours hazy pale yellow with a huge fluffy head that persists and leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma has a lot of citrus, a bit of white sugar, hops, floral, a bit metallic too. The taste is dry with a mild acidity. The palate is borderline watery, and leaves a medium length sugary-sweet finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Chimay Dorée has a thin, off-white head, a murky, orange-gold (sort of pineapple juice) appearance, lots of powdery sediment, and fierce, tight bubble streams. The beer gets a lot cloudier, once the bottom caked sediment is swished and poured in. Aroma is of sweet, sugary bread and mild spices. Taste is of the same, with a noticeable balancing bitterness. Even alcohol seems to be in the flavor, here. Mouthfeel is medium and prickly from the carbonation, and Chimay Dorée finishes champagne-like and easy going. RJT

Somewhat typical Belgian. Rich and enjoyable as always. Too light though being so low on alc.

Hm...can’t really taste the usual Chimay here. Pretty much like a wit beer. Ok.

Overraskende at finde denne belgiske ale i Danmark. God smag, flot farve, men mangler prikken over i-et.
