3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours hazy and pale, with a froth head that quickly settles to a thin layer. It’s not a looker - it looks terribly thin. Those poor monks had to do with the second or third runnings... It looks like a wheat beer but the thin head tells the truth that there is none or very little wheat in the malt bill. The aroma is more promising. The chimay yeast comes through in a way we don’t feel it do in the other beers, where it is hidden behind more flavorfull malts. It’s sweet and citrusy, maybe some butterscotch hints too. Very entising. However, the flavor lets the beer down. It is thin. The pilsner malt cannot carry the taste alone and the hops comes in to play first string. In the back of the mouth some of the citrus is still there but is a refreshing beer at best. Just not enough flavour. High effervecence and light mouthfeel puts the closing chapter on a negative note. I understand why it was a beer for the monks only.

A lot of floral notes, great about of carbonation, I thought the drink would float away at times. This has to be one of the lightest beers ever made, you could easily drink a 6 pack of this and still drive. This beer lacks the spiciness or sweetness you are dying for.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy blon, with a persistent layer of foam. Very refreshing, a nice hop bitter and not much alcohol. Dry finish. Bittersweet and hoppy.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Laranja opaco, alta formação de espuma, baixa retenção. Aroma de malte fresco, levemente ácido, não muito atraente. Paladar remete ao aroma, mas bem mais ou menos em qualidade. Aftertaste terroso, pouca duração. Pretendo tomar novamente, esperava muito mais.

Bottle from Carrefour City supermarket, Brugges, Belgium. Hazy straw coloured with a large foamy white head. It has a floral fruit and bubblegum flavour with slight soapy notes (in a pleasant way) followed by tropical fruit on the very dry, smooth finish.

Rich aroma. Taste is fruity and perfume like. Low alcohol and a lot of delight. With a very faint shade of cinnamon as after taste.

I’m starting to fully enjoy the Chimay beers, which was "to heavy" for me. This one is the soft of the family. Similar to a white beer, but without the feeling of the "oh boy, I’ll have a headache tomorrow".

Mousse faible, aspect blanche trouble. Gout léger de céréales, froment. Bonne bière pour ce style. Rafraichissante.
