Hopmaestro (1858) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2018
Aroma is sweet with marzipan and yeast with hints from apricots. Taste is sweet malty with dough and yeast, yet crisp and refreshingly light. Lime and citrus peel bitterness coming in from the flank and develops into mild and pleasant bitterness. Solid brew indeed, and a great complement to Chimay's more hard-hitting brews. Pax ora et labora!

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 Bottle at home. Hazy dark yellow with white head. Aroma of Fruits, banana, slight spice, malts. Taste is Belgian yeast banana with a slight spice. Good malt quail it’s but a medium light body. All in all a solid tasty brew.

malibrat (214) - Pula, CROATIA - FEB 5, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2018 Pivo u flaši. Blaga aroma slada , kvasca i voća. Okus mi je malo razočaravajući za jedan Chimay. Tanko tijelo , slabih voćnih okusa koji su inaće tipični za Belgian Ale piva . Aroma koja obično odlazi u nos kad ga malo promućkaš u ustima isto je slabašna. Aftertaste isto blijed...tako da sam malo razočaran. Ali pivo je pitko , pa za one koje ne vole slatkasta i pregusta Belgijska piva bit će vjerovatno Ok P. S... nadam se da nije bila neka greška u proizvodnji. Probat ću ga još jednom kad se ukaže prilika.

lasage (38) - DENMARK - FEB 3, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2018 Flaske. Let tåget gylden, tyndt hvid skum. Parfumeret blomster duft, lidt tynd/vandet blomster/frugt smag. God øl, let at drikke.

GreenCat (233) - SLOVENIA - JAN 13, 2018
0,33 l bottle. Pours dark straw yellow with big frothy dissipating off white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, coriander, orange peel and light banana. Body is light sweet and medium bitter. Body is light, on the watery side, texture is thin and carbonation lively. Finish is long, starts with coriander, some orange peel and medium bitterness that lingers for a while. Aroma is very nicely balanced between malts and spices, by far the best part of this beer for me.

biilz (314) - SPAIN - JAN 12, 2018
Аромат шикарен, немного кориандра. цитруса и пшеницы. Пиво весьма хорошо пенится, мутное, цвет темно желтый. На вкус удивительно напоминает Витбир. Чувствуется пшеница, много дрожжей, цветочные и цитрусовые нотки, а также мед в оттенке. Напиток слегка водянистый. Вкусное пиво, но слегка странно это называют его Бельгийским элем.
