A good beer. Has many of those familiar abbey ale elements but far lighter and less rich. Nowhere near as rare as it used to be and that’s a good thing. Smooth and drinkable, yet flavourful.

Bottle sent by Chimay’s importer for review. I get to re-acquaint myself with the entire line of Chimay ales. This turns out to be almost sessionable. Light malt sweetness in the nose means this does not stand out as much as some strong stout or IPA. A thick, puffy white foam with some fizziness. The taste offers aromatic Belgian malts. Sweetness without the tempering of hop bitterness, yet it settles pleasantly on the tongue. Leaves just a slight aftertaste.

3.9
Carlisle (736) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2017
Bottle. Pours pale gold with thick white head and substantial lacing. Nose of orange citrus, coriander, and substantial floral notes. Orange citrus followed quickly by coriander. Effervescent body. Long, mouthcoating finish.

3.2
sinte (564) - Udine, ITALY - JUN 20, 2017
Bottle 0.33L. Hazy pale golden body with a large, frothy white head, mostly lasting with nice lacing. Moderate malty (grains, caramel) and hoppy (citrus, flowers) aroma. Moderate bitter and light-to-moderate sweet flavour with a bitter average-lasting finish. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; average carbonation. Watery, thinner than expected.

3.2
Turtles (2577) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 13, 2017
Keg @ Belgobaren, Stockholm. Hazy bright golden, brief white head, poor lacing. Fruity and herbal aroma, mild yeast notes, leaves and hay. Light mouthfeel, fairly crisp but a bit watery. Bubblegum yeasty and fruity taste, orange, apricots and red apple. Mild bitter finish.

3.5
jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 9, 2017
Pours a one finger white head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Pale, hazy, straw color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light malt and Belgian yeast nose, flavor is herbs, Belgian yeast and light grain, some bitterness at finish. $5.45 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

3.7
Listigovers (1162) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2017
Cloudy light golden beer. Smells bright and yeasty with a definite herbal character. Taste is lots of chimay yeast with a light herbal hop, some more muted citrus tones or peel. Body is light to be a bit watery, overall it is nice.

3.5
Grumpelmies (318) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 1, 2017
Bottle. Cloudy milky yellow with a big belgian foamy head. Aroma of citrus fruits and yeast. Taste is grainy and fruity. Bananas, apricots and peach. Bubblegum. Spicy and sweet. Some floral hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium carbonation. Kind of refreshing and pretty yeasty for a Blonde. Also quite flavourful for its low abv. Nice.

Måske en af det bedste pilsner som findes, ja ja .. det er det ikke, men hold nu op, en øl du kan drikke 20 af, og vil stadig gerne ha mere. RICKI ER DER FLERE ?!?!?!

Fanni (30) - HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2017
It has a very tasty caracter. The coriander is dominant,but that’s great. It gives a very special feeling. Doesn’t really bitter, either sweet or sour. I would buy it again.
