4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An overall very nice beer. A strong creamy head, pure white with a light spicey fruity aroma which follows through on the palate. Balanced by a finishing bittersweet hop/malt component.

Re-rate, A cloudy dark golden,almost orange color. Persistent head that did not die. Nose is fantastic,subtle banana,yeast,fruity undertones,sour apples(almost like a sour lambic quality) and more. Medium bodied,soft and lively mouthfeel. Bready,yeast,peppery notes,very light banana and honey flavors. Nice hop and bitter twang at the end. The balance between sweet and sour is awesome. This is good chit:)

Re rate. This beer used to have a secure spot in my top 20, but has fallen from grace. Too sweet, just doesn’t have that je ne sais quoi of the great Belgians.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice aroma and head, pale amber color. The aroma reminds me of fruit, mainly pineapple, and is nice but also quite thin compared to the red and blue. It did get a little better though as the glass warmed slightly, and the somewhat bitter taste mellowed to a more fruity sweetness. Still, I prefer red and blue to this one.

Pale amber, hazy rich head. Banana aroma. Lively and complex. Very flavourful and fruity. Peppery. This is an old favourite I have not sampled for far too long.

You can’t drink this too cold, or it’s acidic. When it is a wee bit warm, then the pineapple/apricot aroma and flavors come through. Dry, tart, earth-grassy. Aftertaste hangs around, but it’s not bad. Tall, stiff, crystal white head. Peachy-gold and cloudy. Steal some yeast off the bottom of the bottle for your homebrew.

Yet another Chimay that rocks. I poured this and let it sit for awhile. As it warmed, it got better. A ton of lace on the glace and a beautfiul golden orange hue in the glass. I want to go to Belgium.
