Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle - 330ml. Cloudy golden body with a thin, lasting white creamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with citrusy, yeasty, and coriander hints. Its well balanced taste carries herbal, citrusy, and some subtle piney notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Enjoyable, although not as rich as the other beers from Chimay.

First beer in this new role as dad.. 15 days at hospital.. So this is how freedom tastes like. Head looks like dishwashing water unfortunately, otherwise nice look due to not filtering. Nice with belgian style beer after all those IPAs. Sweet, sour, some lemon and yeast. Nice and easy!

Tasted at Chimay’s tap restaurant. This is golden, with a good head, and is slightly gassy. Smooth, hoppy and light. Has a gentle citrus aroma. Good session stuff.

On comprend tout de suite mieux pourquoi les moines ont attendu quelques siècles avant de la commercialiser. Elle aurait tout aussi bien fait de rester dans les abbayes.
