Bottle. Orange color, hazy. Big white head with lots of lacing. In nose corriandet, lemon, orange. Corriander and lemon also in mouth with some peppery and grassy notes. Too agressive alcohol in flavor. Some sourness in aftertaste. Lemon stays in mouth after. Actually, this beer easy going. But alcohol taste could be better hidden. Good beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reinheitsgebot, it’s not. And that means something to me, not just in the abstract. The Chimay brews are among my favorites, and perhaps it is unfair to judge them against all others, but more fair to judge them against themselves. Compared to the sublime Blue, and the wonderful Red label, this is a lesser brew with an unattractive aroma and a confusion of unrelated barnyard flavors. Possibly I got an older bottle? Came with the ’chalice’.

Pours ahazy bronze color with a lofty cream colored head. The smell is sweet toasted malt, yeast, fruit, a touch of caramel. The taste is as it smells ending dry and yeasty. Medium body with active carbonation. A tripel that isn’t too clogging which is nice.

A Tripel not unlike the Belgian Strong Ale like Pauwels Kwak, and that means MASTERPIECE! Well within the like of Belgian beer anyway. It’s just pretty much your perfect Tripel, so harmonic and friendly you’ll never notice the strength. I sense nutmeg and plums with perfectly measured hops to make this heavy brew light in taste and hazy in looks. Good Stuff!
