Ernest (7744) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2005
Bottle, Gent, Trappistenhuis, May 2005. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, caramel), lightly yeasty (mold). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Simple and rather bland Belgian amber.

Served on tap. Light hazy straw colour. Thin low-lasting white foam. Light fruity (yelow-orange fruits) aroma with spicy notes. Light malty and fruity flavour with a mineral aftertaste. A bit of astringency. Light balanced bitterness. Low body and medium carbonation make the 4.8% Abv seem higher. An interesting beer but easy to drink.

300 ml bottle. Cloudy bright orange, foamy head. Bland aroma. A bit grapefruit, a bit coriander and other spices, a bit yeast. Taste is slightly bitter. Soft carbonated, light bodied. Too simple.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2017 Light version of chimay. Aroma is very spicy and a little note of pear. But flavor is difference from aroma in my opinion. Very spicy and good bitterness like ginseng. Light mouthfeel and strong carbonated. Aftertaste is very clean, to give it a hard name too much light or weak. In general it is good choice when u wanna get trappist in hot summer.a

monkeychugg55 (1095) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2017
Hazy yellow orange with a large, lasting head. The aroma has some coriander, orange, bread dough, banana, clove, and a touch of flowers. The flavor is pretty mellow, with a lot of bready malt, some citrus, and some perfectly balancing bitterness. High but fine carbonation as to be expected.
