bananas (esters), phenolics, some green apple notes, bubblegum, raisins, grapes. Combination of sweet, somewhat bitter, again phenolics, some alcohol, smooth, and high carbonation with a lovely fluffy mouthfeel. Overall great but with a somewhat impaired drinkability

tmdaines (78) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2017
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.

DrnkMcDermott (3101) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - JUN 26, 2017
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 (745) - 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 (570) - 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.
