Received in trade, thanks blutt59! Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow color with a huge bubbly white head that persists. Earthy spicy citrusy especially lemon on the nose with some faint crackery malt underneath. Spicy almost nutmeg in the flavor with a light bready crackery maltiness and some earth and citrus to counter. Smooth flavorful easy to drink beer.

Very nice golden pour, sweet bit of tropical yeasty flavors, almost spice like rye in finish

Bottle, 330 ml, shared with JFK10000. Pours golden, medium white head. Flowery, perfumy, malty, fruit, yeast. Light bodied. Sweet. Dry. Not my thing. Quite disappointed with this one.

Lätt grumlig med fint skum. Doftar lite halm och malt. Smaken frisk och brödig. Eftersmaken svagt besk och hyggligt lång. Ganska kraftigt kolsyrad.

Bottle at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Hazy gold with a light fizz & a large white head that rapidly diminishes to soap suds. Very sweet candy aroma and taste initially, but watery too; like a sweet shop has pissed in it. Bit of bananary Belgian yeast. Some cardboard and metal in the finish. Definitely thin. Dismal, an insult to the Trappist brand. I bet if this was made by A-B instead of Chimay it would get a far lower rating on here!

Dit bier heeft de typische Chimaygistsmaak. Het is een zacht bier, met tonen van citrus. Duidelijk een mildere variant van de tripel.

berkshirejohn (6061) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A gushing, cloudy, pale straw coloured pour with a billowing white head; yeasty aroma; soft and soapy in the mouth, with a thin grainy taste; and a light spicy bitterness giving some gingery warmth. Disappointing.

Hazy golden body, medium white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spicies, flowers and grass. Similar flavours. Medium crispy dry bitter spicy finish. Well made. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swaroga (2111) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
33cl bottle. Hazy, dirty yellow with huge head. Aroma is grains, caramel, yeasty dough, bread with butter and sugar, lemon peel. Soft but strong carbonation. The beer is easy to drink but not much taste there. Reminds a watered down soapy Wit with a bit more bitter hops but still nothing interesting. Finish is soap.

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Aroma of clean malt and clean laundry. Hazy light amber color, big sudsy white head that is slow to settle, large piles of lace. Taste is light malt that is bathed in carbonation. Yeast and very simple bittering complete the brew. Light and refreshing, doesn’t seem like Chimay, but, it is good, and I’ll have it again.
