rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, - APR 11, 2012
Bottled. Thanks to Joakim G. Hazy amber color with rich, persistent head. Rich, phenol-like Belgian yeast in aroma along with fruit compote. Flavour is slight nutty and toasty in the background. Belgian yeast very present. Suggestions of caramel and apricots. Medium bodied and well attenuated. Very elegant beer.

Lekker fris te drinken, eerste smaak wat scherp maar nadien aangenaam te drinken.

Skinnyviking (6936) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle at home. High fluffy and long lasting white head. Hazy amber body. Banana dominated aroma with notes of apples, pears and honey as well. Sweet fruity flavor with a dry malt straw note, fair amount of hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish. Alcohol well hidden by the sweetness.

kapusil (588) - HUNGARY - AUG 15, 2014
0.33l bottle. Dark amber body, light beige head. Aroma of banana, peach, caramel and toast. Taste of orange zest, caramel, toast, candi sugar and floral hops. The finish is quite hoppy. Very nice.

Beachmaster (110) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 9, 2014
33c bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy amber with a big white head that lasts, leaving fair lacing. Nose is caramel and bananas, and the taste is malt, caramel, and toffee. Finish is medium length, with a creamy mouth feel. A typical Belgian amber, but a little light on flavor for the style.

bartlebier (1640) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
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.

Case (239) - GERMANY - AUG 6, 2014
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

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.
