UPDATED: JAN 20, 2004 Golden in color, great lacy head, more of a hoppy nose, a bit of bitterness in the aftertaste, very smooth, very rich, had the pleasure of partaking in this very excellent brew ON DRAFT at Monks Cafe in Philly

Chimay remains the Champagne of beers. I found the white to be lighter and more lemony than the Bleu and Red. Still a fantastic beer that can be enjoyed at any time.

I prefer the red (Rouge) Chimay, but there ainít a loser in the bunch. I wish Westy was as easy to get though...

UPDATED: APR 12, 2004 In my opinion this is the 'worst' Chimay. Offcourse it's still an excellent beer. Good spicy taste
#Rerate (april 12, 2004) Aged. Apple and yeast in aroma. Malty, sweet and full. Lacks fruitiness compared to the chimay speciale. The Speciale is certainly better for aging purposes.

Now this is a good beer. Excellent flavor. Expensive, but worth it every once in a while.

Very lovely yeasty flavor with some spicy and fruity undertones. The flavor leaves a bit too quickly though and I wish it were a bit more complex. I think Chimay has a certain mystique because it comes in a wine-sized bottle, itís made by monks and itís not cheap. This isnít really my thing, but itís still pretty good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nothing wrong with this brew at all... the hints of spice and citrus are quite wonderful, and the appearance is just gorgeous... a reddish orange on top that submits to a more golden orange towards the bottom... bubbling at all points during my drinking experience. Citrus and spice are all I can really say about this brew with a great hoppy finish... great beer

Not bad, but I prefer either the red or blue Chimay to this.

A fruity nose, Large head, Colour is a golden haze. Chimay yeast flavour which is fruity & spicy.
