janubio (467) - SPAIN - FEB 7, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Cloudy golden colour, with a dense head that leaves a firm lace and thin cloak on the surface. Smell of flowers, fruits, citrus. Marzipan. Spices, clove or cardamom, coriander. Crispy and lively palate. Taste is dry, citrus, spicy, again clove or cardamom. Dry aftertaste. A different trappist, thinner body and alcohol than the usual ones, but really good indeed.

GBZ59 (1182) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - FEB 5, 2014
Botella clásica de Chimay de 330ml. Copa Cáliz. Color dorado pálido y apariencia algo velada. Corona blanca y tupida que persiste como una fina capa en la superficie. Aromas herbales y de levadura con trazos de pan fresco, galleta y manzana Granny Smith. Entrada malteada, picante y especiada. Cuerpo medio/ligero y carbonatación moderada aunque vivaz. Textura densa y paladar divertido. Un ascendente amargor en el intermedio, junto a un leve toque tartárico, genera una refrescante sensación cortada por una sutil astringencia de membrillo. Final amargo y prolongado con matices de madera verde y afrutados -como de manzana- en el retrogusto. Una buena cerveza para "cañear" y, probablemente, la mejor Belga, con menos de 5% que nunca haya tomado. 330ml Chimay classic bottle. Goblet. Pale gold color, chill haze appearance. White, close & lasting on top head. Herbal & yeasty aromas, hints of fresh bread, biscuit & Granny Smith apples. Malty, spicy & spiced upfront. Medium to light body. Moderate but lively carbonation. Dense texture & funny palate. Increasing herbal bitterness & slight tartar touch in the middle provides a refreshing sensation. Subtle quince astringency. Extended bitter finish. Green wood & fruity hues -apple like- on the aftertaste. Nice session beer. Probably, best Belgish Ale below 5% I´ve ever had!!

Bière belge de caractère avec une belle mousse. Malheureseument, elle ne peut être dégustée qu’en café et donc ne peut être dégustée entre amis avec un bonbon plateau fromage

Une bière de soif de qualité supérieure. Rien d’exceptionnel. Facile à boire, fruité/épicé. Peu de retour.

0.33L bottle. Wheat and mild forest berryes aroma. Bretty good and interesting aromas. At first drinking I thought that is shampoo, but it is not. Fruity, yeasty, grainy. Three words describe this beer. Little watery finish and still somewhere is soapwater.
