4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Medium offwhite head. Hazy, dark orange body with yeast particles. Sweet bready, yeasty aroma with strong fruity notes (banana?) and spice. Taste is sharp, sweet licorice and spice with bitter background. Dry, light, spicy aftertaste. Spicy taste lingers. Very, very good. A world classic. (0.33 bottle.)

33cl bottle brought direct from Belgium
Another Great Belgian Ale from Chimay. Not as good at Chimay Red in my opinion, but still worth the effort.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 New rating from Rema 1000. Pours light hazy orange golden with a medium, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, doughy, esters, light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, grassy bitterness, somewhat light, grainy notes, mild esters. Crisp in the malts, no sign of alcohol.
Pale orange golden colour with good white head. Caramel and fruit in the aroma. Quite hoppy and vinious but still fruity sweet. 5/4/7/3/12

A hazy golden colour with a fine head which dissipates only after a couple of minutes. It is quite hoppy with a yeasty flavour with a hint of fruit. What more can I say, another well done Abbey ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with sediments and a big, creamy white head. Sweet nose is characterised by yeasty spiciness and coriander. Sweet and spicy flavours, coriander together with banana and clove, good bitterness, giving a dry finish. Full-bodied with warming alcohol. It may have become diluted and commercialised recently, but it is still a great beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft @ Falling Rock: Small creamy head sits atop a cloudy, orange body. Bread, caramel and cinnamon dominate the yeasty nose. Lemongrass, herbs and wood as well. The body is thick and creamy with soft carbonation. Banana, bubble gum, apple and honey are wrapped in more cinnamon and ginger. Long finish lets you enjoy this complex creation. Fantastic!
