Golden colored, slightly hazy, with a thick head. Somewhat sweet and citrusy, and quite smooth and a bit bubbly. A little bit of spices, and some hos at the end of a moderate dry finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2007 750ml Bottle: Poured gold with a big foamy head. Aroma was musty and herbaceous with some nice malt notes in the background. The flavour carries through with this but in a somehwat confused and dissonant. Very lively carbonation and full mouthfeel. This is a more expressive beer than the Rouge or the Bleu.
Re-Rate: Less impressive this time around. Just not as expressive. 7/4/7/4/14=3.5

12 oz bottle-pours a nice hazy orange hue with a nice big pillowy white head. Aromas are citrus like, but not in the hoppy sense-oranges, bananas and dusty yeast esters (my BBB63 quote for the day) Flavors are fruity, yeasty and juicy-lots of citrus. Great palate-smooth and round. A great trippel

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2005 My favourite of the Chimays. Cloudy golden colour with a large white head. Nice lacing. Good mouthfeel and lots of carbonation. Lots of fruit and spice in the nose and taste. Slightly bitter finish. Dryer and crisper than the other Chimays. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light gold and hazy with a big pillowy off white head. Duller than expected alcohol and herbal grassy nose with notes of yeast. Bread crusty and fairly boozey. Medicine like hop bitter. Mild spice and yeast. Some mineral and metallic flavours come through. Burnt sugar. Palate is stronger than the flavour. Picked up some mint near the end. Decent.

Golden with a large, rocky white head.
Aroma of hops is more pronounced than
either the blue or red. Nice and dry and hoppy flavor with just enough sweetness to balance it out.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one pours turbid pale golden, with a creamy head and lace. Aroma of hops, yeats, champagne, fruit. Tastes of hops, fruit, malt, with a slightly dry, fizzy, complex finish. A good beer, but not a hall of famer for me.
