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 (1659) - 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.

WouterVG (17) - BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2014
Clearly a beer from the Chimay-family: Dense, long-lasting head. Same yeast as the Chimays. Rich tasting, high-quality amber beer.

bhensonb (10979) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 25, 2014
750 c&c from Bine and Vine. Pours hazy amber with a transient beige head. Aroma of light treacle, yeast/fruit ester and celery. Med body or better. Flavor matches the aroma. Finishes moderately bitter and towards dry. Tastes good.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours copper with a nice foamy off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a carbonated caramel malt flavor with a hint of banana ester and a bitter finish.

Alengrin (1347) - 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.

cmc619 (407) - California, USA - AUG 24, 2014
First French trappist beer. From bottle into Orval goblet. Immediately the aroma is so attractive - sweet malt. Great pour with lasting head on hazy orange-bronze beer. Alcohol is completely hidden (at 7.6%). Only thing bringing it down is a bit of harshness from the hop bitterness in the finish. Overall pretty nice.

rayaron (119) - ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Hazy golden-orange with low beige head. Aroma of banana, fruity, yeasty, notes of cheese, skunky, malty, spicy. Flavor is yeasty, sweetish, light bitterness, unbalanced, a bit skunky. Medium dry. Light carbonation. Medium body.

Kristel (5) - Poperinge, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014 does not count
Lekker fris te drinken, eerste smaak wat scherp maar nadien aangenaam te drinken.
