3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, a while back. Bit like the toffee and spiced oranges version of Chimay Rouge: a stickier mouthfeel covers most of that earthy, proprietary yeast’s subtler spice, but allows enough hop counterbalance to shine through, hiding its alcohol well enough. Still not really in the same league as the other trappists.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber-orange with large beige head. Fruity aroma with oranges, peaches, flowers. Taste is caramel, yeasty, a bit of spice, a slight bitterness. Light mouthfeel. A mild, pleasant trappist that is refreshing and not cloying but that will have trouble standing out when compared to its brethren.

Zeer lekker biertje, net zoals de andere bieren in Chimay gebrouwen, een aanrader om eens te proberen

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank this after a knackering day at work, really needed a crappy lawnmowner beer just to down for some bog standard refreshment, but had only this; I’m glad I did as this was a treat that probably deserved more considered respect from me; in the five minutes it took to drink I noted burnt sugar, sweet citrus and characterful yeast aplenty; well-balanced and really enjoyable.

Dark copper colored ale with a good foam. Very malty and Belgium in its expression.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bière plutôt décevante. On reste sur la arômes classiques des bières belges mais beaucoup moins bien équilibrés que chez les autres trappistes...
