sneakychi's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
sneakychi (77) - - DEC 16, 2013
Clear, yellow/orange. White head, constantly reinforced by small bubbles. Aroma is yeast, citrus, sweet malt, cleaning product, ash (?), a little ripe banana. Makes me think of a tripel. Nice! Taste is quite balanced with a small sweetness and bitterness. Heavily carbonated, kind of watery on the palate.

Poured from bottle. AROMA - citrus and leather APPEARANCE - gold with a bit of head. FLAVOR - dry floral hops, wild yeast, grass, citrus. PALATE - somewhat tart and floral. OVERALL - not bad but not for me. I would not buy again

Aroma is yeast, apricot, peach, more yeast and hops. Taste is fruity and a tad sweet. Herbal. Average middle of the road palate. Yeast in aftertaste. OK.

3.2
JaKeAFC (1265) - ITALY - SEP 24, 2017
Bottle from famila. Pale golden color, almost clear with some sediment, majestic white head. Aroma is mostly floral and spiced (coriander) with light cookies and grass, some citrus and yeast. Taste light sweet a little sour, faint bitterness in between. Light body, dry finish, average carbonation, a bit thin but refreshing.

tonyferrari (33) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2017
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.

2.8
tgrtnr (282) - Augsburg, Bavaria, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2017
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.

AcctError487629 (10) - - AUG 29, 2017
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
