4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle in a tulip glass. Pours an oversized forthy head, in which even the foam has an alcoholic taste, and a pleasant hop note to the smell. A golden hazy body. Once I get past the foam, I find a slight lactic tang among citrus notes and the mouthfeel of a Squirt soda. A delicate, balanced bitterness and the hint of orange peel at the end. It’s just great for relaxing to in the recliner.

330ml bottle at home. Pours a hazy gold with a big white head. Aromas of banana, vanilla and orange, good yeastiness too. Taste has a light sweetness then a good kick of bitterness. Creamy texture and long clean finish. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BB 2015, 0,33L bottle. Intense sweet aroma, there is yeast, apples, other fruits, hints of dryness. Pours clear golden with white head. The head stays for a long time. Taste: sweet apples, raisins, rather yeasty, nice bitterness. Bitter finish with lingering fruits. Alcohol is also in the taste, but not dominating. Lively carbonation. Overall: my favorite of the "regular" Chimays. It is sweet, but also bitter, alcohol isn’t too strong. Nice one.

Sampled side by side by side with the other chimays. clearish golden straw with good white head. Sweet straw nose with hints of vanilla. Has a bitter grassy hoppiness. Muscatty. definitely my least favorite of the four, but not bad.
