gbzia (195) - Cedar Knolls, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2002
A nice light Trappist. Similar to the other ’brothers only’ Trappist, it’s light, nice spices, some hops and easy to drink.

malrubius (2799) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 29, 2017
Bottle from CBC Belmont. Hazy gold with dense white head and lace. LIght coriander spice and vanilla grassy aroma. Medium sweet vanilla apricot with light spicy bitterness and light coriander finish. Light crazy soft body with very fine internal carbo that accentuates hops, coriander and sugar sweetness. Very complex for a low abv beer.

17wojownik (424) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 12, 2017
Charakterystyczna butelka 330 ml. Taki sobie zwyczajny Belg, dużo przegrywa z klasztorniakami. Aromat drożdżowy, mało szczypie w język. Barwa jasnozłocista. Odfajkowano.

jvhemert (393) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2017
Aroma: yeast, grape, orange Appearance: cloudy blonde Taste: bit sweet, little bitter Palate: creamy, thick Overall: refreshing and distinct from other Chimays. Somewhere between a witbier and a märzen. Bottle from Lambic, Barcelona.

SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - APR 2, 2017
Pours hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Smells floral, spiced, hints of sweetness. Taste is spice, sweet, hop bitterness to balance, and hints of bready yeast. Light-bodied with a fizzy texture and average mouth-carbonation, Chimay Dorée finishes with a lingering floral kiss.
