Enjoyable. I had "Chimay Premiere" in one of the large bottles, splitting half ot it with a friend. It was enjoyable, strong, very drinkable, though inferior to Chimay Blue in my opinion.

Dark coppery colored with light brown head. Very light fruit aroma. Not a really strong fruit flavor or taste in general as other trappists.

Bottle. Off-white short head. Unclear orange red body. Aroma of berries. First impression of flavor is sweet berriest is however modified by the powerful carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2006 I think this was my first Abbey Dubbel which men’t why it was weaker than a triple or quadrupel. Pours a dark mahogany with very fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity and the taste is the same as it. Fruity but you could tell it was weak, the alcohol didn’t have the kick and make it that much fruitier, ok but I’ll take a stronger abbey anyday.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy, dark ruddy copper colored pour with a tall nutty head. Yeasty nose with some dried prune. Very yeasty flavor as well and the texture is quite buttery. This beer starts with a nice herbal hoppiness, and finishes with a touch of cinnamon and clove. Very nice overall.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Foamy cream-colored head on a hazy reddish brown body. Aroma was initially more hoppy than I expected, then with some time displayed sweet red fruits that became more and more apparent. Fairly carbonated on the tounge and medium-bodied. Smooth and a little yeasty. Flavor is subdued, but good. A very pleasant beer, but not very complex.

Mon premier Chimay que j,ai bu, mailleur que la blanche, car je la trouve moin amère et plus riche; un peu sucré et caramelisé.
