   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20
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.

750 ml. bottle from my cellar. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and spice. Taste is sweet fruits, malt, yeast, and spice. Aged well, but perhaps I waited too long.

Danke an Erzengel! Mild süßer, leicht erhöht karbonisierter Antrunk. Trockene, leicht kräutrig hefige Noten, geringe Würzigkeit. Steigende Süße, weich, etwas hefig. Alkoholische Noten vor allem zum Ende, Erstaunlich süffig. 9/10/9/9/11/9

75cl bottle courtesy of Erzengel! A hazy deep golden beer with a mid-sized most good lasting off-white head. Aroma of sweet banana, lime, citrus, belgian yeast. Taste of sweet banana, ripe banana, yellow fruits, mellows, yeast. Great!

Bottle. Light amber, slightly hazy with a decent head that settles down to a thin layer on top. Nice yeast and spice combination, some lemon, Belgian candied sugar, chewy grains, moderate+ body and nice carbonation, somewhat sweet but finishes sightly dry with some booze.

15.02.2014, 0,75l bottle sampled @ RBNG14:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fresh fruity, citrus, yeast, peach, dried fruits, hay, dough. Taste is slightly fruity, light malts, yeast, citrus, spices, almonds, hay, coriander, cardboard. Longlasting bitterness, dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

2015-01-10: Gul, disig med ett gigantiskt och hållbart skum som klänger fast på glaskanten. Läcker doft med örter och torkade frukter, typ aprikoser. Smaken är helt underbar, maltig, fruktig och med en skön örtighet, här finns lite citrus och lite honung och sötman balanseras av en superfin beska av grapekaraktär. Denna har lagrats i 2 1/2 år. Helt underbart fantastisk! Så smakrik och välbalanserad, måtte det bli något nytt Chimay-jubileum snarast!

Colore arancio, leggermente torbida, schiuma appena accennata ma compatta, la birra è ben oltre la data di scadenza. aroma fruttato. All’assaggio si sente un iniziale carattere vinoso dovuto alla stagionatura, poi però prende il sopravento il carattere originale della birra, crosta di pane, arancia, amaretto, mandorla, caramella, vaniglia. Una birra complessa e di ottima fattura, con il tempo incominciano ad apparire note alcoliche e marsalate che si amalgamo perfettamente con il carattere originale della birra.

Scandenza nel 2015. Ottima birra, complessa al naso e in bocca. Al naso fresca, un po' vinosa, speziato, ecc. in bocca vari sentori, tra i quali anche amaretto. Veramente, ma veramente valida. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Geproefd @ Cultuurcafe Berlare. Thanks Kevin. Fles 3 jaar over de datum. Mooi helder goudblond bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van perzik, abrikoos, beetje meloen, licht vineus, beetje houterig. Mooi vol en likeurachtig in de mond. Mooie balans. Top genietersbier !!
