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.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from February 2914. Lower alcohol content for a belgian ale but this doesn’t detract from the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Brouwcafe, Schevenigen. Poured a hazy straw colour with a long-lasting frothy white head. The aroma is light yeast. The flavour is medium bitter with a yeast, malt, hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. So this is what the monks get to drink. They won’t be too disappointed but it’s not quite enough to make me join the monastery!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl flesje via Être Gourmet. Alcoholpercentage van 4,8%.
Uiterlijk: Gele kleur, goede schuimkraag
Aroma: licht fruitig
Smaak: Gebeurde niet veel, in de verte wat fruitig en heel klein bittertje en hoestdrankachtig. Niet onsmakelijk, maar te weinig smaak. Vandaar dat deze niet overal te krijgen is in vergelijk tot de andere Chimay trappisten. Wel blij dat ik hem heb geproefd, was hier wel benieuwd naar.

Bottled. Warm and hazy orange color with thick off-white head. Fruity wine-like nose. Aroma is fruity wine and subdued sweet fruits. Flavour is nutty, sweet malts and fruity. Loosens up by the end, kinda thin for its kind.

Discreta patersbier, cioè birra prodotta solo per l’uso interno del monastero. Questa birra è stata da poco messa anche in commercio. Buon bilanciamento dolce/amaro, lievemente speziata. In bocca risulta secca, asciutta e ben rinfrescante.
