750ml bottle shared by jsprime. hazygolden with a white head. an imperial version of regular chimay white is all this beer is. not neaded and not better then the original but not flawed or off putting. please make a 5% version next and sell it for $2 a 330ml instead of tricking people with this fancy over priced sweet boozy belgian strong. meh

75cl. Bottle. Poors hazy almost clear yellow with white head. Aroma yeast, apple, fruits, corriander, floral, little spicy. Taste loads of soft bitters, loads of sweets and a hint of sour apple Mouth-feel creamy. Great beer, loving it.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 [ASPETTO] oro carico, quasi aranciato, leggermente velata; schiuma bianca, fine , abbondante e media persistenza [OLFATTO] profumi floreali con un tocco fruttale che ricorda marmellata di frutta gialla. Evidenti i lieviti, malti con sentori di crosta di pane e miele. Profumi alcolici evidenti [GUSTO] in bocca prendono il sopravvento le note amare la cui azione è amplificata da una buona dose di alcool già evidente fin dall’inizio. Si presenta meno dolce rispetto a quanto preannunciava al naso,mantenendo comunque note di marmellata. Una leggera astringenza si perde in un finale speziato e pepato, con alcol evidente ma non fastidioso. [TEXTURE] corpo medio, morbida al palato, buona carbonazione iniziale. [COMMENTO FINALE] strong ale prossima ad una tripel, aromatica e con note dolci comprimarie a servizio dell’effetto complessivo, alcolicità elevata che quasi spaventa, ma che in bocca funziona bene senza impedire una bevuta fluida. Mantiene un buon equilibrio complessivo ed evoluziona in maniera interessante soprattutto nel finale con una speziatura compiacente.

A lot of coriander, medium-high sweetness, short finish. Great, white foamy head. High carbonation.

chefinvt (19) - Blenheim, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 13, 2013
A wonderful drop. Pours a slight hazy orange, with a lively white head. First aromas carry a hit of apple and pear, with a hit of ethenol. Moments later it leads to bisquit and toffee. The spices are well hidden, but apparent on the palate. On the palate first in malt and toffee, lending to the spices and superb carbonation. A little hot on the palate but very drinkable with a delightful dry finish.

Pours hazy pale orangish color with white head. Strong corriander and floral aroma with some doughy yeast. Fruity and doughy flavor with lots of corriander.Medium body with lively carbonation. A decent beer but definitely not worth anywhere near the $25 price tag.
