A great beer. Part of a 3-pak with a free Chimay glass for $6.99, what a bargain. I would have bought all of them if they had more than one. Beautiful hops, great orange/brown color, creamy white head. Not as good as the Blue but definitely something I could drink a lot of.

A good beer. A little bitter, coriander, a little alcohol taste.

Appearence is really excellent - a 5 in fact. Oh so smooth with lovely fruity, yeasty flavours. Could have done with a bit more spiciness but itís great all the same.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Prickly, robust piny aroma with an alcohol body in this taupe-orange brew. Smooth body sends piquant signal to nose, but the flavor is more warm and rounded in mouthfeel than having distinct decipherable components although wheat and evergreen needles seem detectable. Alcohol is present, but well masked. This beer finishes with a peppery pinyness.

Great looking beer. Bright orange/gold color with lovely lace. Fluffy white head. Aromas of pepper and coriander with a touch of alcohol. Hop bitterness that envelops the palate. Flavors of orange and pepper. Finish is a tad harsh but still quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2006 Chalky flour cream...Very yeasty clouds obscure the sweet oranges in the distance...Alcohol bitterness meets the hopsí in the back...Between a tripel and a witbier...Lemon, pepper, floral hops and cinnamon also play very quietly...

This ale has a large creamy white head. A complex beer with definate strong spicy?pepper flavor. Well balanced and complex. I prefer the red and blue Chimays, but this is well above average.

This beer rocks. The hazy color of apricot nectar (my wifeís assessment). As with most Belgian ales, the nose hints of a skunk about 300 yards away...downwind. Also, a very fruity aroma. A very crisp, clean, spicy flavor with a dry, effervesant finish. Yum.
