Better than most beers. Citrus flavor and fruity on the nose. Very nice but I usually go woth the blue. Perhaps it’s peer pressure.

Pours out a nice reddish color with a large fluffy white head. It has a good fruity aroma with a good amount of carbonation. It is a very smooth brew with nice sweet fruity/malty taste with a slight alcohol/hop finish.

A deep reddish color with a light tan-off white, fluffy head. Fruity aroma, mostly of darker fruits with slight floral notes. Medium-full bodied, lightly carbonated and smooth mouthfeel. A slight hint of lemony hops followed by light alcohol warmth. Sweet flavor component isnt as strong or complex as the chimay bleu.

Muddy red. Off white head. Slightly gamy aroma with yeast, spice, some citrus. Good body with some sweetness. Rich and lucious with some fruit and I get a hint of sarsparilla. Overall, very good, but not as complex as some.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very good and smooth beer for a dark beer. Most beers of this strength (7%) have a very heavy, hoppy taste; at least to me. This is a strong beer without being overpoweringly strong or too stout.

Brown thick head, slowly disappearing. The body is dark copper colour and the aromy slightly fruity. The taste is fruity, but a bit more bitter than its cousin the Chimay bleue. No obvious alcohol in the taste, and a milder finish. Very good, but I still prefer the bleue.
