3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. White creamy lasting head. Clear amber body looking to have a good deal of carbon dioxide. Aroma claimed to be with muscat and raisins, I could not tell, I just found it fruity. Very pleasant smooth flavor, bitterness without being too much despite the high alcohol percentage.

Elle pas mauvaise, mais je l’ai trouvé très amère. J’ai pu l’esseiller Au Petit Douceur Belge à Québec en forma de 33cl. et dans un embalage cadeau avec le Bleu (2 X 75cl.) avec un verre.

33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ 2007. Clear dark orange with a sea of very fine bubbles; thick, stable, creamy slightly off-white head leaving beautiful, dense lace. Attenuated odour of cardboard, raisins, grass. Sweet-bitter taste with Muscat grapes and a hint of prunes; peppery hops which keep burning long into the aftertaste; presence of alcohol.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml - 2004 - Aroma is sweet candi sugar, Belgian yeast, corriander, and lemon zest. Pours clear golden color with constant bubbles cascading up my trappist glass. Frothy white head sticks around and leaves great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a little bubblegum showing up. Hides alcohol well. Palate is creamy and smooth. An easy drinking quality tripel

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
[bottle] Pours out beautiful, with a cleat golden color and generous white head. This beer is a fine Tripel with a boost of hops in both aroma and flavor. Extremely complex, slightly spicy. Hops are especially present in the long aftertaste. Finishes warm and bready. This is my favorite of the Chimay offerings.

Wasn’t crazy about this one. Orangish-amber color with a thin head. Too much bread mixed with sweet flavors for me.
