Murky brown, nice head, some floaties. Yeasty, nutty and cut grass aroma. Reminds me of Chimay Light (blue) with just the riht amount of kick to make it a nice session beer. Flavor is mostly malty. Very tasty. Thanks BierKönig (Jeppe) for the trade.

Bright hazy gold. Bit musty and peppery, some lemon. Midly undercarbonated.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Poured a cloudy brownish, orange color with a small white head but left no lacing on the glass. Musty cobwebs, light citrus, bandage and straw aroma. Taste was yeasty, lightly sweet lemons, with a soft and smooth mouthfeel.

Sampled in a beer tasting at Plan B, Copenhagen. A great disappointment. Pleasant aroma but way too bland and watery.

NosirIwont (1894) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
Bottle. Clody amber colour. White head, which disappeared quickly. Sweet, yeasty aroma. The taste is dominated by yeast and is acidic. Medium bitterness. Seems ’mild’.

Bottle@Plan B, Copenhagen. Exploded when i opened it and fell right onto my notebook. Once it finally settled down it was OK. Bready/yeasty, and quite light, in comparison to other Chimays, not very full flavoured, kinda tasted like watered down Chimay Rouge, it was OK though, easy to drink.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Golden amber with a thin, white head. Light fruity aroma with oranges, apples, plums, candy sugar, soft, yeasty dough, honey, biscuits, and light hops. The body is soft and fairly supple, but as light as expected for this daily, Belgian session beer. The flavor is light and rather uneventful. The fruit is light and fairly sweet, but distant. Malt and yeast combine nicely with good flavor seemingly just over the horizon, despite never being met. The flavors are good, but this seems to be more like a watered down regular Chimay beer than anything else. Interesting, nonetheless, but not exciting or something I really want to revisit again.

This would be a very nice sessionbeer! Hazy orange with medium head. Malt, spices and yeast in the aroma. Taste is fruity and mild and ends with a nice bitterness.

Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden beer with a huge head with just above standard retention. Aroma is comprised of quite strong malt with some spice mix. Taste is quite refreshing with again the malt hitting you at first and ending with some noticeable spice mix. The body is thinner then the other Chimay but the carbonation is great. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer but not up to the standard of the other Chimay.
