4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I got this as a gift from my regular beer shop (Berendsen, Enschede).
Excellent and apparently hard to get beer. Cloudy and pale yellow with slightly more then enough carbonation. Reminded me a little of a very nice Weizen and of Hoegaardse Das, with hints of orange, banana and coriander.
Very nice beer indeed!

Very nice, and great to try the elusive entry of my early favorite beer. Lots pod hay and straw here. Pours hazy golden with good head and lacing. Light bitter finish. Very easy to drink, a good way to encourage the good monks. Tap at pizza paradiso Dupont.

Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Aroma is coriander, citrus, light sweetness. Taste is light, refreshing and crisp with citrus fruit, bread, light spicyness. Decent ale, in any case good to finally have this available commercially.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hezy golden color with medium white off-head. Aroma is yeasty and fruity, with green apple predominating and a spicy background. Taste follows the aroma, with yeasty and apple notes and also spices. Sweet finish. Not the best beer from Chimay, but good though.

Flaske: Orange uklar let grumset øl med et flot skumhoved. Frisk duft af chimay gær og let humlet. Meget zing i smagen der trods den lille alkoholprocent stadig er klassisk chimay. Superlækker lille øl.

Somehow I have missed this beer in the 20 years I have known chimay. It is just as good as its fellow brewery mates. Very smooth and tasty.
