I_LUV_BEER (172) - - JUN 9, 2016
Served in a snifter from a 330ml bottle. Pours clear gold with white slowly diminishing head, medium amount of lacing. Aroma is yeast, bread, caramel, orange peel. Taste is bread, caramel, yeast, bitter-sour finish. Medium body with medium carbonation, very well balanced. Very smooth and would go very well as a session ale (which is a nice change for a Trappist beer!). Nice one!

BelgiskOlklub (1045) - Viby J, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2016
Hazy yellow-orange body and a small lasting white head. Aroma of oranges, honey, pine, yeast and herbs. Nice. The taste is well balanced medium sweet and medium bitter with a good bitter finish. Creamy texture.

Cristobal37 (762) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 5, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2016 Sweet apples peaches fruity belgian yeast aroma. Very light blonde color almost white, very bubbily. Light body, spicy, oranges, interesting finish with some minty herbs. I really like it. It?s nothing like what I expected. Somewhere between an easy drinking low abv blond and a wit beer. Chimay can do no wrong.

slowrunner77 (9941) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 1, 2016
bottle from trade. Bubbly head and big time carbonation. Aroma and flavor are surprisingly citrus forward, with lots of yeasty spice as well. Lighter and tingly on the palate. OK.

kapusil (1139) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 1, 2016
0.33l bottle. Hazy golden body with a thick and lasting withe head. Huge tangerine and coriander notes in the aroma escorted by bread, honey and some Belgian yeast. Taste of coriander, bread, honey, orange zest and some floral hops. I’m quite suprised that this is not categorized as a wit. Quite nice.

en del koriander og lidt frugt. Synes ikke jeg kan smage den klassiske belgiske gær i den, men det er måske bare mig :-)
