4.8%ABV. Belgian Ale.
Poured out an amber. 16ºSRM.
Nose is lavender and sweet malt. Also has wet plaster and formic acid tang. Reminiscent of a Delirium Tremens.
Mouthfeel is sudsy. Palate has malted wheat type flavors, no hops and a little sour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10 ounce pour - $8.00 at Trappeze Pub in Athens, Georgia.
Appearance: Served up a near clear, yellow-gold body with a white, foaming head.
Smell: Hmm. Smells a little like a top-shelf soap. What’s wrong with some humble Kroger-bought 10 for $10 Softsoap? Cereal-scented malts, lemon peel and aromatic fresh-cut flowers.
Taste: A light touch of pils malts, scantly cereal-esque and hay-hinting. Medium level of sweetness had. Some citrus, some spicy phenols and varying petals. As with the aroma, it’s predominately lemony and soapy. Modestly bitter. Drying, lightly crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Well, I was hoping for something bright, light and refreshing. Instead, got some old lady soap. Disappointing, considering it’s a Chimay release.

Blond helder bier met witte schuimkraag en redelijk wat pareling. Fruitige citrusgeur. De smaak is zoetig-bitter met een bitterige afdronk. Leuk aperitiefbier dat zeer goed past bij de Potaupré kaas.

I like this beer. Low alcol but a complex and floral flavor.
A strong taste of orange and lime, light bitter retrotaste.
This beer surprised me.

Sampled from a bottle from the Fuller's brewery shop. Pours a hazy yellow gold colour. Malt, fruits and spices in the aroma. Taste is exceptionally good, with flavours of orange, cloves, bubblegum, ripe banana and coriander. Hints of the farmyard also. A really excellent Belgian ale.
