3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Like a glass full of honey, Chimay Blanche pours beautifully golden. An amazing white head that just lingers with gorgeous texture. This beer you can love just by looking at it. Flowery, tangy aromas. Rasins and dates were most prominent for me. Medium body that’s a tad more cloying than the Chimay Rouge. A bit of bitterness in taste, but predominantly you will experience the flowers and a touch of sweetness. This beer is well-balanced, delicious and attractive..

Big Bottle. Poured a hazy gold, with a decent head that lingered. Bready/yeasty aroma. Flavors domated by yeast, and a sweet/spicy fruitiness. Alcohol revealed in the warm aftertaste, which is slightly bitter. I like it but Bleu is still my favorite from Chimay.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught: Hazy golden yellow with a medium frothy white head. Aroma has banana, wheat, strong malt presence, spicey yeasts, citrus, earth, and light fruits. Taste has lots of yeast, malt, wheat sweetness towards the beginning with some bitter citrus, spices, and bread at the end. Another solid one from Chimay.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2005 750ml bottle. Cloudy, amber with white head that dissipates. Very nice palate, almost sweet at first and then alcohol and hops flavor. A good beer, I prefer to the Allagash tripel. But the flavor is not quite as complex as the allagash, and nothing compared to tripel karmeliet. I’d buy it again though.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gold/amber color, that isn’t cloudy, but isn’t clear either. Aromas of yeast, spice, fruit, and some alcohol. Hoppy citrus flavor with some earth and spice.
Starts a little sweet, and turns more bitter towards the end. Not as good as the blue, but better than I remember it being.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a pale golden, slightly hazy, large white rocky head, strong carbonation, with lattice like lacing.   Estery aroma, spices, with some notes of citrus & earth.   Forwardly musty, earthy, slightly sweet, with some light spices.   Good body, medium mouthfeel.   Finish turns from a slightly sweet to a slightly salty, subtle spices, and bready.
