Light brown with orange tint. Raisins seep into the taste from the very aroma of this beer. It's not a bad thing but once you get over the raisins you'll get into the better parts of this beer; the balance of hops; the slightest touch of bitterness that rounds out at the end. If the review were shorter it would simply say: great beer.

330ml bottle dated best before end of 2017 and poured into a Chimay goblet. It poured a hazy copper colour with a two finger cream head that has good retention leaving a thick curtain lacing. There were initial aromas of apple, pear and bready malts followed by sweet banana and honey. Surprisingly strong alcohol taste, but also sweet candied sugar, banana, bread malts and some light apple and pear flavours. It was medium bodied with medium carbonation and a creamy feel. I’m a big fan of Chimay, but this was not one of the better tripel beers. Ultimately I thought that it was too boozy and everything just kind of got lost behind that.

Gotta love those Trappist beers, especially when your girlfriend handpicks them for you. From the bottle, this poured a hazy orange-gold appearance, with plenty of fluffy head. Candy yeast and sweet caramel malt, along with sweet pear and raisin fruity notes, constitute the rich and complex aroma. Taste has the same flavors as just listed, along with a light hoppy bitterness, as advertised. Medium bodied and lower carbonation. Very fresh tasting, moderate flavor intensity makes for a good beer to pair with food. A positive introduction to the Chimay line.

Chimay uit de fles. Net als de blauwe variant een enorme schuimkraag. Smaak is lekker fris/ fruitig met een zoete afdronk die redelijk snel weg is. Komt voor mij dicht in de buurt bij mijn hoog gewaardeerde la chouffe

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a darker golden appearance, a somewhat hazy look. Lots of carbonation. Huge thick foamy head. Aromas of hops and malts. Taste is citrus, hops, some spices. Mouthfeel is yeasty, some sediments are quite visible. This is pretty good stuff, I would drink again for sure. The 8% abv is quite deceiving.

Pours hazy golden with a thick creamy head. Body is medium with moderate carbonation. The nose is fruit driven with moderate spice. Taste is quite similar with moderate clove and fruits. It finishes with a sharp bitterness without any lingering. Great beer
