Keg at OJS, Brum. Smoothly yeasty, fresh Belgo. Great full flavour, but easily gulpable. It’s late. I’m boring myself now. Myself only: cos no one else cares.

patricks110 (2283) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
Quite peculiar. A rather light and floral bre with a wheaty and eastery base and a refreshing taste. Light fruity ans citrus notes with mikd spices. Overall not bad but not like most Chimay’s

Tim Webb (310) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2013
On draught at the Fullers pub on Kings Cross station, London, a week after its UK launch. Only sold in 38cl measures - well at 4.8% ABV you wouldn’t want a whole pint, would you. Tastes like a Leffe Lite. Pungent with spice, too sweet, not much hop presence at all but tolerable enough. A cask 4.5% abv light ale imported from the Channel Islands was much superior. What is the point of this beer?
