Chimay (Red / Rouge / Ale / Première) 3.7
Akkurat TAP snorungarna i sin KIA. Lovande arom tilltalande färg tror tamefan Akkurat diskar glasen pga fin laceing. Chimayarom. Balanserad tilltalande med ett drag av päron och vete i eftersmaken.

Chimay Bleue (Blue) / Grande Réserve 3
33cl bottle from 2015. This beer is strong, but I honestly can’t understand the hype. Carbonation is too high and the alcohol taste is too obvious. Nuts and dried fruits, raisins maybe but too much sugar in the taste, almost artificial.Strange, maybe it’s a bad batch or it was stored in improper conditions, but it’s not my first beer (in fact, more of the 200th), I’ve also had the Rochefort Trappistes 8 for example and the difference is huge.

Chimay (Red / Rouge / Ale / Première) 3.5
330ml bottle @ Estaminet de la Longue Croix, Herdeghem, Belgium. Paired with a speculoos mousse desert and cassonade sugar. Pours deep, hazy copper with off-white head. Aroma is fruity, some spice. This was undoubtedly served too cold so much of the flavours were unfortunately lost on me. However, the spicy fruity yeast and caramel notes did go well with the ginger in the speculoos desert. Will have to re-rate this.

Chimay (Red / Rouge / Ale / Première) 3.4
It’s good but not amaaazing like so many of the big Belgian names--esp after it warms, the aromatic hop notes are quite strong for the style and some metallic rusty malt elements help to distinguish it from its better cousins

Chimay (Red / Rouge / Ale / Première) 2.9
Served in a tulip glass from a 330ml bottle. Hazy ruby colour with diminishing off-white head. Aroma is caramel, bread, yeast, dark fruits and malts. Taste follows the nose very closely: malts, bread, caramel and dark fruits notes, bitter-sweet with a hint of sourness, slightly bitter finish. Medium body with lively carbonation. Not bad but not the best.

Tasted from the bottle 750 ML with Marc. This is my favorite from the three pack. Nose is not as good as the rest. This is a great beer! Orange golden cloudy color. Long lasting white head. Fruity with pineapple taste but good balanced hops and 8% alcohol. Smooth and easy to drink for a quality drink. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reddish-brown colour, one inch of yellowish-bright beige-ish creamy head; aroma of dried fruits (mainly figs), walnut cake, green apple, biscuits, smokey and minimal woody notes; taste is very smooth with dried fruits, walnut, biscuits and oak barrel notes; amazing beer; probably the best one of the day (among other beers, such masterpieces like Stone IPA, Stone Levitation, Goose Island IPA, Firestone Walker Union Jack and Double Jack, as well as Port Brewing Mongo IPA have been tasted, so it was a prefect day); thank you very much for sharing, Kapusil! :-)

Dark brown ruby. Wine barrel booze vanilla aroma. Fascinating complex taste a woody version of the blue with more earthiness. Rounded out by figs and almonds and walnuts. Wine and wood barrel with a rose petal and cherry sweetness. Kickass.

Kolor brązowy, bardzo zmętniony. Piana drobna, szybko opada. Aromat mało intensywny, słodowy, drożdżowy i przyprawowy z lekkimi akcentami kwiatów, owoców. Smak lekko wytrawny. Trochę drożdżowe nuty i przyprawy. Czuć lekki alkohol. Wysokie wysycenie. Słaba goryczka. Jak na piwo trapistów to mało intensywny smak.

Donker bruin bier met fijne dunne wit/beige schuimkraag. Geur: gistkarakter, brood, wat fruitig en alcoholisch, vleugje donkere chocolade en koffie,. Smaak: zoetig, zoethout, wat banaan en een milde bitterheid. Goed in balans. Redelijk volmondig. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht bitterig. Ik heb een eigenaardige relatie met dit bier, ik lust het de eene keer meer dan de andere keer.

Chimay Triple / Blanche (White) / Cinq Cents 3.4
With the ’modern’ Chimay signature nose this sweet smelling lightish russett coloured beer squeezes itself into the triple catehory. Some complexity and carby acidity is evident but this lacks definition and comes across as somewhat four square.

Bottle 33cl. Hazy yellow, gold with a loose white head. Sweet aroma, honey, malts, yeast. The taste is surprisingly bitter and a bit watery. There’s a weak sweetness later on but the aftertaste is full on bitterness. Not bad, but not what you expect.

Kolor brązowy, bardzo zmętniony. Piana beżowa z drobniutkich pęcherzyków, opadła szybko do minimalnej warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat mało intensywny, słodowy, drożdżowy i przyprawowy z lekkimi akcentami kwiatów, owoców. W smaku początkowo wydało mi się lekko słodkie, z czasem bukiet stał się wytrawny. Znów mamy drożdżowe nuty i przyprawy. Jest lekka alkoholowość, podbita wysokim wysyceniem. Goryczka ledwo wyczuwalna w tym wszystkim, lekko też osadza się na języku. Piwo jest treściwe i wybitnie degustacyjne. Jak na piwo tej mocy spodziewałem się czegoś mocniejszego, w doznaniach oczywiście.

Type: 33-cl bottle (11.20-oz.) Glass: Clear 16.5-oz. Belgian ale glass From: Alpine Liquor in Alpine, Calif. Price: $3.99 (originally $5.99 I think) Purchased: March 7, 2016 Consumed: March 8, 2016 Misc.: No BOD on bottle Have always wanted to try any type of Chimay, but the price was usually too high for my liking. Found this one for $2 off at the local liquor store and had to pounce on it. Poured a golden, orange, hazy color with five fingers of white, rocky head, which dissipated rather quickly. Looked like a lot of small pieces of pulp underneath the top, but I know it’s not. Minimal wet spotty lacing on the sides of the glass. Poor retention. (Sight - 3.50) Smelled coriander, orange peel, caramel, honey, citrus zest, lemon notes, grassy hops, hints of Belgian peppery spices and dried apricot. (Smell - 4.00) Taste somewhat followed the nose. Got coriander, orange peel, apricot, honey, citrus zest, lemon juice, freshly mowed grass, sugary sweetened iced tea and powdered orange sugar. (Taste - 4.00) Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Fizzy carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 3.75) This was really good. Kind of reminded me or of a Witbier, but either way this delicious. (Overall - 4.00) 3.95 89 B+
