Bottle. Golden pale, slight haze. Loads of, slightly sweet, malts, a bit of hops. A bunch of fresh spices , some yeast. Body is medium, refreshing. Pale malts, a bit of cornish tones. Interesting, and enjoyable brew. Malty, pale, but with good spicyness.

I got this as a gift from my regular beer shop (Berendsen, Enschede). Excellent and apparently hard to get beer. Cloudy and pale yellow with slightly more then enough carbonation. Reminded me a little of a very nice Weizen and of Hoegaardse Das, with hints of orange, banana and coriander. Very nice beer indeed!

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2012
330 ml bottle, thanks tiong. Pours a hazy, dark brown colour with a white foamy head. Aroma of caramel, dried fruits and plum. Flavour of yeast, caramel, hay and plum. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dryish fruity finish. Good.

330ml bottle from Bieresgourmet

BBE 2015 - Pours golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, ripe fruits and farmyard. Taste is malty with hints of yeast, ripe fruits and citrus. Finish is slightly malty and yeasty. Okay, quite easy going Belgian ale.

Es quizas la mas floja de todas.Muy justa de aroma,apariencia .Una cerveza notable no obstante.Pero que va mas hacia la abadia que el estilo trappist.

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2012
Very slightly hazy pale golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, metallic iron, light hops, fruity yeast, banana, candy sugar and bubble gum. Light sweet malty flavour, light bitter, quite fruity. Quite light body. Light bitter finish, very fruity, light wheat touch.
Quite typical Chimay yeast aroma combined with a sort of German hefeweizen character. I quite like it.. even if there’s a bit of iron in the aroma, what I do dislike quite a bit.
(Draught @ Auberge de Poteaupré)

sebletitje (6582) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2012
Draft 33cl. Dorée trouble, col blanc épais. Arôme est agréablement fruité avec pas mal d’ester. Palais est léger très agréable, ici encore un profil de bouche axé sur la levure et les esters donnant des notes de banane et une pointe d’épices. Se boit quais comme une Hefe, pointe houblonnée fruitée allant vers le citron tout en gardant cette fin de bouche typique de Chimay.

Only one place you can get this, I had it on tap at the Auberge de Poteaupre as an accompianment to my food. As I was driving, it was also the weakest beer on the menu :) Nice blonde style ale served at the inn and in the abbey to the monks.. Tart, tangy and bitter with sticky lacing. Very fine carbonation....different from their heavier beers, but still very good.

_angst_ (2556) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2012
Bottle @ Ölrepubliken. 2008 vintage. Pours hazy deep golden with a small white head that quickly dissipates without leaving any trace. Smell is  sweet with cereal, plums, dusty soil, oatmeal, orange zest, lemon zest, silage and yeasty bread dough. Taste is slightly sweet with cereal, lemon zest, dry soil, hay, dusty oats, dry leaves and hints of plums and grapes. Mouthfeel is crisp, watery and light bodied. Finish is tiny sweet with cereal, orange peal, dry soil and hay. Probably better fresh.
