Bright gold pour with a nice coriander and hop aroma. Flavor was an excellent combination of malt and fruit. A very good belgian.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange color, and a nice fluffy white head, simply gorgeous. Some spices and maybe bananna in the aroma. Taste was wonderful. Spicey and peppery, and a bitter finish. Excellent.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Verbose white fluffy head. Golden colour with a few specs of yeast. Sweet aroma. Bitter taste. Baggs of alcohol coming of it. Which for me doesn't rate highly. I like my strong beers to be sly about it.

Smooth. Nice balance between initial sweetness, acerbic assertion midway through, and a yeasty finish. Peppery?? aftertaste. Intriguing.

Draft - I had this beer on draft and it was good, but I prefer it out of the bottle. Great color with great white head. Very smooth packed with citrus. Though I have found the quality going down a bit in the bottles over the years, Chimay remains one of my favorites.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange looking out of the bottle. good head with a citrus aroma. Taste sweet but a little too much for me. Finish is a little hoppy.A good Trappist but I would pick Blue or Red over this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a norange gold body topped by a thick rocky white head with good retention and a good amount of lace. Flowery, orangey aroma with yeasty and spicy notes and a slight sourness. Slightly sweet yet sour and salt flavor with flowery notes and orange accents. The finish is short, bitter and flowery. Medium bodied, dry and smooth.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours an orange color with a very citrus filled aroma and a medium head. The taste is sweet and very strong of citrus. This was a great drink and it was very smooth. I would have this again if not for the high price.
