4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge huge off-white creamy head. Lovely spiced yeasty and caramel malty aroma. Soft caramel flavoured with a small spice note breaking through in the beginning. Goes into a more yeast and spice dominated flavour. Ends slight bitter and spiced. This is by far my favourite chimay and one of the best belgians of all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
An orange beer with a beutiful head. It has the aroma of orange and fruit and the tastes of the same. It is very well balanced between the sweetness and the bitter lingering. A great beer that I enjoy on a regular basis.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2006 (Bottle 33 cl) Amber coloured, frothy head, lots of sediment. A dry, very dry almost medicinal or herbal beer, and as such an unusual trappist. Comes in the neighborhood of Orval but far from that beers complexity. A bit too bitter for my liking. 180893

2010-08-11, draught at Ris Ras, Århus, 8-5-8-2-16=39
Cloudy light amber color; small sized creamy head. Malty aroma. Strong body, round; good malt flavor, a bit biscuity, somehow yeasty and spicy too; very good flavor, but the bitterness is a bit too much.
2008-04-04, draught at Ris Ras, Århus, 7-4-8-4-16=39
Just hazy golden color, creamy head. Soft aroma of malt, and light biscuits, maybe a bit perfumy. It has a good malt flavor, dry, with a good body strength, with a very good Belgian yeast job. Well bitter. Very good.

Beautiful amber color, thick head.
Very nice aroma, more delicate than Chimay Red; caramel and old hops.
Good body structure and good balance; it has aged well, just some oak cask flavor, and a light liquorice hint.
Final stronger and more interesting than Chimay Red.
