It's hard to review this beer while drinking it, as my eyes sort of roll back in my head in ecstasy. Of the Chimay beers I've tried, this is hands-down my favorite although they are all good. The malt sweetness seems to be better balanced in this one than the others.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Btl pours a hazy light brown-red color. Big off white head, with big bubbles that fades fast leaving no lace. Aromas of fruits:prunes,old plums, banana, and a hint of citrus. The smell of caramel,alcohol and fresh baked muffins hit the nose. Tastes of fruit,figs,sweet caramel,earth,yeast and dark bread. Medium body,lively cabination,soft mouthfeel and a sweet yet slightly alcoholic finish. Very good beer,it has a nice malty character that is rich and bold. It has an effervescence about it that makes it very drinkable. I like this beer it is fantastic!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From 75cl, corked/caged, has about 4 inches of headspace in bottle, poured into 16oz Belgian tulip glass
Aroma: sweet fruity, malty
Appearance: amber, clear, massive tan head with good retention
Taste: Medium sweet
Palate: medium body, creamy or sticky texture, lively carbonation, short sweet dry finish
Overall: I’m not a big fan of Dubbels, but this one is exceptional. The aroma has lots of fruity like smells. At first, I thought it was cherries, but after reading the description saying apricots then I’d assume that’s more accurate. The color and body is nice. The taste is malty, smooth, sweet, creamy, and well balanced. If I had to choose one Dubbel, this would be it. Fantastic beer.

C’est une bière agréable. La mousse est légère et sa robe est cuivre foncée. Je l’ai sortie fraîche du frigo et le mieux est plutôt de la boire à 12 degrès, fraîche sans trop l’être. Il me semble que le carameal ressort avec un goût d’alcool prononcé. Je préfère quand même la chimay bleue.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fairly large off white head, though it diminishes quickly. Beer per se is a tawny color and quite cloudy.
Aromas are bready and doughy, along with some fruit, perhaps plum or apricot. Hops are quite mild.
Body is medium to full; there is a fair amount of sweetness, though it is masked by pretty lively carbonation. The alcohol is quite apparent. Seems fairly acidic, though it may just be the carbonation.
A good beer; interesting in that the yeast seems as prominent or more than the malt.
