33cl bottle from Brewski, Nijmegen. Pale yellow/orange with medium slightly off-white head. Medium body with light to moderate carbonation. Yeast, flower, spices, grass and herbs. A more then decent refreshing and tastefull brew from Chimay.

On tap @ In De Wildeman. Pale blonde color, hazy. White head with some lacing. Aroma’s: coriander, refreshing sweetness. Retronasal: coriander, some sweet malts and sweet fruit. Flavor is moderate sweet with hints of bitterness. Light bodied, not too thin. Finishes quite dry, with a herbal bitterness. Quite big on the coriander.

Hanoi (353) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Bottle. Nose Is yeast, some straw hops. Taste is straw, grass, some light strawberry, a little cardboard in the short finish. Slightly too carbonated. A very ordinary beer from a brewer that has lost it’s way. A thin, short Duuvel. The idea of a session Belgian is appealing this execution is poor.

brnandersen (1793) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2014
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Tulip. Hazy, golden colour with a light amber tint. Big, frothy white head. Sweet, spicy aroma with yeasts, fruits, light hay, pepper, some caramel malts. Taste is sweet. Light to medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry, fruity and yeasty with spices, light caramel malts and hops. For obvious reasons thinner than the rich beers otherwise found in Chimays offerings. Still a refreshing, subtle beer better suited for a warm evening.

Chimay? Really? Not good, soapy, flavorless and fizzy. Way in the back there is some flavor but that’s about it. Tap at the Beiaard in Hoorn.

psilosophy (478) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JUN 6, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur dorée pale, trouble, mousse abondante de tenue moyenne. Un arrière goût d’ eau gazeuse mais rassurez-vous, elle cache une certaine subtilité avec des notes fleuries, végétales voire de miel. Légère amertume persistante soutenue par une carbonnation explosive! A déguster lorsqu’ il fait chaud. Trouvée à l ’entrepôt - Courcelles les Lens.
