4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 330ml bottle. Cloudy golden color body with lots of particles and a very nice rocky white head. Aroma is spicy and sweet. Many different flavours complementing each others. Yeast, orange, peppery spices, biscuit malt, warm alcohol feel, sweetness, I’ll stop here. Very lively carbonation. Astringent finish that dries the mouth, leaves a long spicy after-taste and makes you want to sink right back into it. Very complex beer that felt more crowded than a Turkey prison cell.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2006 From a 330mL Bottle. Hazy golden yellow coloring with a fabulous creamy white head. Yeasty aromas of lemon and spice are accompanied by a nice bouquet of fresh pineapple and white grape skins. Effervescent bubbling action creates an almost creamy texture on the tongue, but the hoppy flavors are a biting contrast to the supple sensation. Hoppy smack of mild lemon rind.

Another great beer from Chimay. Not as good as the "Blue", but a very good beer nonetheless. Pours a cloudy amber in the glass with a large white head. Good hop presence along with citrus / fruity notes. Flavor reflects aroma with the addition of some peppery notes and a slightly bitter finish. Very good.

Good solid beer, but a bit of a letdown after all I’ve read about it. Stronger than I anticipated and pretty sweet...but enjoyable. Good head retention and mouthfeel.

Bouteille-Dorée aux parfums d’épices et de frutis. Beaucoup d’alccol au goût avec des perceptions de noix et de fruits. Pleine bouche.

Honey cloured but a little hazy nice white frothy head aroma fruit and hoppy aroma. Very strong tasting maybe a bit too much alcohol there. Good but not one of my favourites

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a burnt orange amber with a frothy barely off white head that lingers for the duration of the beer. When it does finally descend it leaves a solid lacing. Aroma is wheat and a hoppy citrus with a distinct citrus scent. Initial flavor is nutty and sweetly peppery, then transitions right into fruity citrus flavors including green apple, raisin, and an array of other subtle dark fruits. Underlying honey and understated port round things out. Finished long with fruit (mostly raisin and green apple) and a mild bitterness. Palate is a moderately thick oil with a lively small carbonation not unlike champaign. Overall a fantastic complex tripel. Really enjoyed this one!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 Aroma is mostly fruity yeast with a definite alcohol presence. Pours a light amber with a nice head. Flavors are mostly fruit with an alcohol taste in the background. Hops are present, but not in the forefront of the palette. An excellent beer, but my least favorite of the Chimays.
