3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: cloudy peanut butter brown with a rich, foamy head. Aroma: roasted butterscotch toffee, raspberries (?), raisins and white wine. Taste: mellow, slightly bitter hops balancing a medium sweet maltiness. Finish: long, smooth and dry, with slight bitterness and sweetness in equal measure. Notes: Not bad. Need to try again with more time to savor it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33 bottle from sm.
Slightly hazy orange with big off white dense. Head drops to 0.5cm and lasts till the end. Nose is sweet, sugary maltiness, yeasty spice notes, bread, very light tartness, very welcoming! Taste is what you would expect from the aroma but more hoppy than sweet. Light caramel and candy sugar notes, spice notes maybe from yeast and hops. Aftertaste is reminiscent of the malt body and mainly hoppy. Dry, medium carbonation, medium body, very good brew...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
,33l pour from room-temp bottle into a footed pils glass in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Pours a hazy dark orange with ample carbonation and a big foamy white head. The nose is amazing. Sweet, fruity, citrusy, almost a soda-y sweetness. Full body, a little sticky, thick. Taste is great. Fruity, citrus, some honeydew, honey sweetness, floral notes, some bitter hoppy herby taste. All around a great beer.

O que falar de uma chimay? Simplesmente sensacional! Aroma frutado e muito agradável. Cor avermelhada e espuma densa, perfeita! Sabor marcante com amargor na medida certa. Trapppistes!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
AROMAT: Delikatny zapach dojrzałych owoców.
WYGLĄD: Mętne, o barwie ciemnego bursztynu, z obwitą, grubopęcherzykową pianą.
SMAK: Zdecydowanie jest tutaj rozgrzewający alkohol z gatunku "szlachetnego" i można powiedzieć, że on przoduje. Dalej - dojrzałe owoce znane z aromatu. Trochę karmelu, trochę słodyczy, minimalne rozwodnienie, niska goryczka oraz wysokie wysycenie. Ogólnie rzecz uujmując - bardzo poprawnie i bez szału.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
L: pours a cloudy bronzed orange with a huge pillowy off-white head.
S: a modest aroma that recalls a bakery in the morning, bread and yeast, very pleasant. Hints of white grape and a slight alcohol note.
T: very nice hoppy taste with Belgian yeast, phenolic tinge, citrus notes, spiced at the end, lights fruits. So well balanced.
F: the malt is quite chewy, the body is reasonably light and hides the ABV well, nice peppery carbonation across the palate.
O: great drinking, one of the classic tripels, shouldn’t be understated. Another please.

Pours amber with large white head. Sweet citrus and possibly caramel or raisin, as well as bitter hoppy in the mouth, while the most prominent flavour in the finish is bitter hops (but is not dominant). Full and bready in texture. Nice

the bottle I drank was cellared by me for over 8 years. The cork had a stamp of 11/06. we drank it on sept.30 2015. wow. smooth, very mild yeast and fruit but complex vanilla/butterscotch/caramel, with a hint of nuts. sip and savor. color was an amber/copper. one of the most amazing ales I’ve ever drank. have numerous chimays over the years and this was the ultimate.
