malt and dried apricots on the nose, beautiful dark copper colour with very high carbonation, light spicy alcohol taste, malt flavour is like a mild dark chocolate, dried fruits especially banana, light bitterness that compliments the beer nicely.

Bottle pours a hazy copper color with a nice off white head and lace sheeting. The aroma is of yeast and apricot. The flavor is much like the aroma and has yeast and apricot. The palate is quite carbonated. Overall, this is OK, but not my beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma after much searching I got some apricot and cloves but no banana. Murky browny red suprised it's commercial description is "particularly attractive". Rich sweet smooth malty flavours with the tiniest amount of alcohol afterburn. At a decent temperature it almost has a fruity/apricot sweet aftertaste with a trace of bitterness.

11.2 oz. Bottle. Tasted like every other Belgian beer with that sickening taste of yeast and bananas. Do the Belgians only make beers with that taste? I keep searching for an exception to the rule, but they ALL taste the same!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet aroma, with hints of banana and clove ... cloudy, dark amber in appearance with slowly diminishing head ... flavor has a hoppy/bitter start with a with a sudden drop into a malty finish. Overall, not the best that Chimay has to offer, but by the same token, it isn't Hamms either.

Wonderful fruity aroma of apricot. Creamy head and wonderful copper color. Flavor is robust, with a silky texture and LOTS of carbonation. Semi-dry and very complex. Quite delicious
