3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 I recieved on of the last bottles of this at the abbey. The workers there stated that after next month it will only be available at the abbey on tap. This beer is not quite as exquisite as its much sought after brothers but when placed up against most other beers this one will win.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, yellow/orange. White head, constantly reinforced by small bubbles.
Aroma is yeast, citrus, sweet malt, cleaning product, ash (?), a little ripe banana. Makes me think of a tripel. Nice!
Taste is quite balanced with a small sweetness and bitterness.
Heavily carbonated, kind of watery on the palate.

Pours a cloudy pale straw, with a firm white head.
Spicy aroma, malt, wheat, yeast, citrus, phenols, cloves, ripe apples, noble hops.
Off-dry, medium body, low to mid bitterness,lively CO2.
Spicy, yeasty taste, malt, citrus peel, cloves, bergamot, orange peel.
Very well, made, refreshing, quite elegant, and very different from the other Chimay range. (2013-12-13)

Bleekgoud, nevelig bier met kleine witte schuimkraag. Aroma is sinaasappel, gist, hop. Droge nasmaak, licht bitter. Fris biertje, maar weinig body en maakt ook weinig indruk.

Turbid golden in color. High head. Aroma of malt and yeast. Distinctive taste of yeast - not my favorite.

Cloudy yellow-orange color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, wheat, yeast, spices, citrus and some other fruits notes. Taste is similar, dry sweet with lightly bitter hoppy and spicy finish. Light to medium body, fizzy carbonation. Nice refreshing beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, thanks to Mathieu87, 12/5/2013. Pours hazy dark straw color, small white head dies to a film on the surface, nice lacing around the glass. Aroma is fruity, pear and green melon, yeast, floral, toasted biscuit with a touch of honey. Taste is fruity yeast, pale straw malts, grassy bitterness in the finish. Drinks easy, though body is somewhat thin. Decent, could drink a few of these in a session.

hazy light honey color with a decent head and nice lacing. Aroma spicy and herby, with lots of yeast. Taste citrusy and wheaty, with a strong kick of Belgian spices. Loves of Belgian beers would like this one. Me... I’m going back to RIS.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden yellow beer with a big frothy white head lasting forever. Aroma is peary crisp with Belgian yeast and sugary syrupy sweetness. Tastes a lot like a witbier with citrusy freshness, honey, little banana and some jellybean sweetness. Finish is short but pretty nicely bitter. The mouthfeel is thin and quite carbonated but the rich and refreshing flavors don’t let it get watery. A good refreshing summer beer with little Chimay house flavor and quality.
