Nice taste for it’s genre. But is not the typical white beer such as Hoegaarden,...
I prefer the dark Chimay. Much better!!!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Flying Pie on Fairview: A cloudy flat copper appearance with not much of a head. Aroma seemed to be fermented grains as well as taste. There is also a mild element of a hefe flavor as well as bar of Dial soap thrown in. The balance between the malts and hops is pretty even. The body is smooth with a creamy feel. Lots of carbonation.

Pours a beautiful. Golden color, rich foamy head. Sweet malty smell with some hops. Very good taste in the beginning with a fizzy finish that was unexpected, but enjoyed. I liked this quite a bit. It also helps it came with a sweet Chimay glass to drink it from.

Poured an effervescent golden with a large fizzy off-white head. Nice sweet aroma of flowers and vinous fruits. Taste is somewhat drier and lighter than the aroma, more floral essences than fruits, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Good bubbly body. Nice tripel; nothing stands out, nothing offends, easy drinking.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange/amber-bodied with a white head that holds. Light particulate haze at first that thickens to opacity near the end of the 750. Aroma is musty with sour fruit, light lemon, vinegar and vinousness. Prickly on the lips with a spicy/fluffy mouthfeel. Yeasts are mostly sour atop a base of malts that leaves the impression of a thicker body. Bitterness to finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful cloudy orange beer with a frothy, lasting head. Definite aroma of orange and fruit. Flavor is orange and peppery. Medium to full body, smooth but slightly astringent finish. Alcohol is noticeable but at a good balance. Probably my favorite Chimay.
