4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The beer has a beautiful look. The color of the beer is a beautiful golden yellow, with a little hint of orange. The beer is quite clear, but it has a tiny cloudiness in it.The beer pours a tremendous thick layer of soft white foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a nice rich layer of soft white creamy foam remains to cover the beer. The beer has a delicious smell. The smell is very rich and somehow thick. The smell has a strong nutty alcohol aroma. Besides this i smell some delicious hops, and a doughy yeast aroma. The smell is a delicious balance between sweet and bitter. Unfortunately I have a runny nose, so all the aromas are a little mild to me. The smell is delicious as well. It is almost the same as the smell. It is very alcohol, in a good way, has a little fresh hop flavor and has a delicious somehow doughy yeast flavor. This beer is more yeasty than most beers. The yeast in combination with the alcohol is amazing. It is a truly delicious beer. Just like you can aspect from a Belgian Trappist beer.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A strong yeasty side, smells and tastes like yeast strongly, it’s amazing. Nice bitterness balance, kind of a sweet bitterness. Pretty nice appearance, especially the lightness of this beer and its foam. Great on the palate, powerful taste and long lasting. I’m not really into trappist beers but this is the type of beer that I consider as the most close to what a beer is supposed to be. Aromas are pretty average to me, but flavours are deep and powerful. I find it similar to Orval but the bitterness is so much more enjoyable (Orval is the only trappist I disliked ’till now). and damn this beer is cheap, there are plenty of more expensive beers that aren’t real beers. I’m used to bake so I usually taste fresh yeast, this beer is the beer that comes the closest to fresh yeast in taste.

Pours a cloudy golden with a bumpy white head. Cream with accents of banana and white grape on the nose. Fuller body, but gets lighter toward the end. Gets a little astringent. Everything is very mild. Faint banana, green, and cream.

Golden-amber coloured beer, strongly carbonated, with big three-finger white head. Aromas are toffee, polished wood, pear, cumin. Taste is basically dry, but with big burnt caramel background adding weight and bitterness. Some fruit sweetness at the end.

Bouteille 33. Belle couleur jaune claire. Mousse abondante et persistante. Odeurs fraîches d’agrumes. Amertume très agréable avec des notes complexes de fruits et d’épices pas du tout agressifs. Un must de chez Chimay.
