Geweldig lekker bitter bier. Hiervan kan je enkel genieten. Niet te fris drinken ook.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is my least favorite Chimay....which means it is better than over 90% of beers anyone will ever have. Pours a hazy straw color with a head that never seems to truly go away. There is always more than a lacing. It is a sweet beer with malt, but there is a slight presence of hops, and a feeling on the tongue that I can only describe as peppery. Unsure if that is the carbonation in it that makes that tongue tip tingle slightly or not.
I have had this a few times, and usually when I get a Trappist beer, this is not the one I choose (Grande Reserve usually gets grabbed first), but I am glad I did grab this one along with some cheeses I bought. Paired nicely and it reminded me that this still is a stellar beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Well-balanced, spicy, tasty and great trappist beer. Really heavy too, but you don’t feel that until later on... Candylike aroma, and really well balanced bitter taste. Fruity as well, and the aftertaste is great.
