MarcV (22) - - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from Belgian Beer Colour: first clear golden, at the end of the bottle hazy. The head is slightly off white, soapy, moderately stable with nice lacing. The aroma is pretty amazing and unique, filled with fruits (banana, pineapple, orange, mango) and floral notes. It’s sweet with licorice, spicy and the hops also are clearly present. This is one of the most complex smells I’ve ever experienced. The taste afterwards is a bit of a dissappointment but nevertheless very good: yeasty, fresh, bitter sweet and fruity. It has got a medium dry aftertaste; the finish makes me think of champagne. Alcohol presence is detectable but not too overwhelming. Overal: this is a complex and unique beer that’s very different from the other Chimay beers.

Kirkas kullankeltainen, vahvasti kupliva olut paksulla vaahtoavalla pienikuplaisella valkoisella vaahdolla. Vaahto säilyy pitkään ja jättää kivasti pitsiä. Kaunis olut. Tuoksussa vahvimmin esillä viljaista maltaisuutta. Tämän lisäksi havaittavissa hedelmäisyyttä sekä lievää mausteisuutta. Maku viljaisen maltainen sekä hedelmäinen. Makeutta juuri sopivasti. Katkeruutta löytyy maun jälkipuoliskolta sekä hieman alkoholiakin. Suutuntuma aika täyteläinen. Jättää suupielet tahmeaksi. Ihan onnistunut juhlavuoden olut Chimaylta.

Bottle at 3 Brødre, december 15th 2015. Dark orange body with a white head. Aroma of spicy yeast esters and banana, with a delightful citrus note showing as the beer warms. Taste is flowery with sweet malt and spicy yeast notes. Light alcohol in finish, with a pleasant fruity yeast aftertaste.

Lore (2379) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 23, 2016
Hazy golden colour, huge, dense off-white head; aroma of floral honey, chardonnay wine, some peach, green apple notes and hints of gingerbread; taste of honey, bread, apple notes, dry white wine, herbs, peppery notes and maybe some minimal anise, too; dry mouthfeel; like a Duvel with honey, herbs and christmas spices; good, though not among the best Belgian strong ales

Cristobal37 (884) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Best before 2015. Fruity sour white wine, pepper, champagne, cherry aroma. Bronze with nice fluffy head. A bit boozy and like a cheap heller bock. Very prickly going down, tastes like vodka or drain cleaner. Must be because it?s past it?s due date because everyone else seems to think it was good. Subsequent sips aren?t as abrasive but I have to assume this is all because this bottle spoiled or was past due.
