UPDATED: JAN 28, 2013 Caramel met oranje noten, getinte, verdwijnende schuimkraag. Aroma van caramel, rood fruit, beetje mint. Niet veel body, ook geen sterke smaken. Wel goede balans tussen zoet, zuur, bitter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very fruity aroma with field berries, apricot, with sugar cane sub notes. Strength is medium with a slight fading out at the end.
Appearance: Dark copper, hazy, with a good sparkling. Head is showing thick, rocky and long lasting. Head is not sticking very much on glass and lacing is fading rapidly.
Taste: Entering mouth with notes of caramel and rapidly developing a subtle lactic yeast profile. Finish is slightly hoppy. Licorice notes are mixing with caramel to give a candy impression. Mouth feel is sparkling, pleasant, his texture is semi oily. Flavor balance is good between malt / hop and yeast.
On ne peut se retenir de la comparer à la Chimay Bleue. Elle manque de saveurs explosives et de raffinement par rapport à sa grande sœur. Elle demeure néanmoins excellente.

330ml bottle at home. Pours hazy dark brown, thin off white head. Aromas of plum, blackcurrant, mixed spice, Belgian yeast. Taste brings all these together wonderfully. Texture is creamy, finish is fruity and long. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of my favorite beers. Smells like a nice beer. Non homogenous appearance throughout. Darker in the middle. Taste is complex. Multiple tastes required to put words to this delicate beauty. Palate similarly complex. I found this beer in a 750 mL bottle at my local Costco. Good beer to give as a gift for sharing and celebration. Would really enjoy drinking this whole bottle in one sitting myself.
