Cerveja dourada turva, creme de formação bem abundante, claro, persistência excelente. Boa carbonatação. Deixou a desejar no aroma em relação a outras Chimay, talvez pelo estilo dela. No aroma, pronunciado o aspecto de cereal, lembrando pão saindo do forno. Um pouco de caramelo também perceptível. No sabor me sobressai o caráter maltado, caramelo, toffe e um toque de especiarias. Um pouco de cravo ou pimenta. Corpo médio, sem amargor pronunciado, bastante refrescante e alta drinkability.

Bottle, Pours a clear golden beer with a nice white head on top. Aroma is bready, yeasty, apples. Flavor is very light, medium sweet and has some bitter touches. Very faint in overall flavors, thus making it quite enjoyable to drink since it lacks complexity but has no flaws either. Just a good session beer in my humble opinion.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Biernavigatie.nl Hazy dark yellow with a firm white head. Lively aroma with lots of coriander, must contain some wheat. It’s basically a Belgian white with the nasty bits taken out which leaves us with a refreshing nice beer.

crossovert (8181) - Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2014
33 cl embosse dbottle. Poured with lees a hazed golden color with a fizzy white head that is pretty active and large , though quickly dissipating. Aroma is coriander and orange peel with a hint of cereal, very pleasant, well done. The mouthfeel is prickly with again coriander and orange peel, it is tropical almost. It cost jsut under 6 buck for a single so vastly overpriced but eh, it was rate #8000.

Coriander on the nose. Appearance is a hazy yellow with a white head with good retention. Flavor is full of coriander and bread with a spicy hop. Mouthfeel is medium with a high level of carbonation. Overall, it's a tasty beer. A little too much coriander though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
