3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 RateBeer Summer 2003, 1994 vintage: Apple aroma, fizzy, tastes slightly old and oxidized. Perhaps 9 years is a bit much for this beer (7/4/5/3/11). Re-rate: Spicy nose with light fruits, medium body, peppery ending. Rating unchanged. First rating: 75CL bottle from 06/00 drank on 1/27/02: Yeasty taste, with fruit tones. I prefer the Red and Blue over this.

Foggy golden bronze color. Fluffy, pillowy, dish soap head floated on top till bitter end. Adhesive lace. Herby hops, alcohol, and yeasty aroma, with subtle fruit accents. Dry palate. Lingering hoppy finish. The flavors meld as this one warms.

A revelation. Reminded me of Witte Hoegaarden, but while Hoegaardens White reminds you of hot summer evenings, this is a beer for all the year round.

Wow, what an aroma on this one!!! Tooty fruity was this thing good!!! Very appealing golden brownish colour with quite a lot of head may i add. Good strong taste grabs the tongue, but not as strong as to make you cringe. A good aftertaste is left after a nice chimay white...very impressive indeed.

750 bottle. Beautiful hazy golden color with a thick head that floats on top. As it warmed the fruit and floral notes came out, especially banana. Some spice, didn’t notice much alcohol.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 bottle: wonderful cloudy orange -for want of a better adjective- color. fully fluffed bubbley head. sour aroma. sour but spicey flavor.
certainly interesting, but hardly rave worthy, imho. i wasn’t bowled over by the red either, as i recall.....

Bottle - 09/21/02. A light spicy, fruity, cider, champagne, dry, yeasty, golden blonde ale that tickles the mouth with its joyfulness. This beer will always hold a special place in my heart. On my last night in Hong Kong and the end of a 40 day tour through Asia I smoked a Cuban cigar and had a bottle of Chimay Blanche on the Kowloon side of the bay during the mid-autumn festival late in the evening watching the lights of city and the festive atmosphere of the crowd. I celebrated the end of a big exam a of couple months earlier with a Chimay Rouge, so it was only fitting to end this trip with a Chimay and a Cuban. Both seemed destined to meet at this place and this time. Thanks to Irvin for sharing in the adventure.
