3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coriander on the nose. Appearance is a hazy yellow with a white head with good retention. Flavor is full of coriander and bread with a spicy hop. Mouthfeel is medium with a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a tasty beer. A little too much coriander though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33 CL from leitmotif. Strong flowery aroma, hints of lime and some husk (all these remind you of extra-fragrant witbiers). Very prickly carbonation, with a light, borderline watery finish. Almost no hops. A nice table beer, but not more.

On draught at Winking Lizard. The beer pours a hazy yellow-gold color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and wheat. Light-bodied with flavors of tart citrus, herbal wheat and fruity yeast. The finish is fruity with a spiced orange aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy, pale golden color, white head. Bright, spicy aroma with lemon and toast. Toast and yeast in the flavor, but the balance is good. Dry, chalky finish. Medium body, high carbonation. This reminds me very much of Duvel, but is far more easy-going due to the lower ABV. Nice.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2014 On the Fifth Day of Christmas 2014 the beer gods gave to me . . . a Chimay I have never had before? Not possible. Session Chimay? Ok. Pours a pale golden color with white foam head. Aroma of caramel, zest, earthiness, Belgian spices, slight bread and banana. Very light, frothy sweet caramel with zest and slight hop hit with banana, citrus and spice on backend. Perhaps a pinch of pepper. You have to let it sink in to appreciate. You think Chimay and the mouthfeel disappoints. But when you consider the flavor complexity in a session brew, a sessionable Belgian? Genius.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours light gold with an active white head. Aroma of grains and spice. Med + body, at least. Flavor is "grain", yeast and mild spices. Flavor is mild, but distinctive. Actually making me think of some sort of TexMex tortilla or chip. Liking it.
