Mont des Cats has a thin-to-medium, off-white, spongy head, very tight, fast bubble streams, a murky, orange appearance, and not much lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is of mellow, sweet, spiced bread, bread crust, and possibleysome sugar. Taste is of those elements, with some yeast and light fruits, such as dates or figs. Mouthfeel is light to medium and prickly, and Mont des Cats finishes crisp, easy going, and not at all boozy. So good! RJT

Belle robe orange-brun avec ce qu’il faut de mousse. En bouche on retrouve des note caramélisées avec un peu d’amertume en début de gorgée. Belle bière ambrée, qui plus est trappiste.

PotjeBier (1999) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2014
75 cl bottle from covered market in Lille, shared. Darkish amber color, cloudy, with floating particles. Good off white head with long retention and some lacing. Aroma’s: grain/malts upfront. Retronasal there’s also some sweetness, spices, yeast and some cork (being from a 75 cl bottle...). Flavor is light to moderate sweet, grain-ish, herbal/spices. Medium bodied. Finishes with herbs, moderate bitterness and something nutty (chestnut/beechnut). Nothing spectacular, but good enough.

Clearly a beer from the Chimay-family: Dense, long-lasting head. Same yeast as the Chimays. Rich tasting, high-quality amber beer.

Alengrin (3240) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Developped in 2011, this is a special case among trappist beers: though brewed in a trappist monastery (Chimay), it is sold by another one, which made the trappists decide this should be a kind of "semi-trappist" not allowed to carry the official logo. Very thick, snow white head, warm copper colour with brownish hue, misty with large protein flakes. Malt sweet aroma, nutty, caramel, apple, unripe peach, grass, leather. Caramel and honeyish malts in the mouth, light ’nuttiness’, restrained fruitiness, light grassy hops in the finish without turning really bitter. Though correct and well-balanced, this lacks the body and personality of even Chimay’s own beers, strangely. I do not believe the gossip that this is a blend of two original Chimay beers, this is clearly a separate recipe, but I cannot quite grasp why Chimay hasn’t put more character in this.
