Beautiful dark ruby color with a light tan head. Little to no lacing in the the chimay goblet. Nose is arromatic of sweet malt and citrus. Tingly mouthfeel with good sweet malt and floral hop flavor. Aftertaste is pleasant and dissipates quickly with hints of apple cider.

Tipica trappista, "never disappoints"! Colore intenso, schiuma corposa. Si nota da subito un odore fruttato che si riscontra anche nel sapore, ben equilibrato con un retrogusto amarognolo. Davvero buona.

The beer which I hold over all others. From the aroma of first opening the bottle- buy the larger bottle with the cork- The sublime smell that brings peace to mind. Allowing it to breathe for the briefest of moments, pouring slowly into the appropriate glass and smell the mild fruity aroma ( i disagree with the apricot I.D., but I have no words to fit the description)The copper tinted beer pours well into the glass- collaring a perfect head of just-off-cream colored (and textured) froth. The fast is balanced- beginning with a sweetish malty-ness and ending with just the briefest bitter. I search out this bottle wherever I shop, and when it’s been too long- demand it. Worth the cost. Worth the experience.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Den Engel, Leek. Pours a slightly hazy deep amber colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of red fruits, cherry, apricot, some blackcurrant, slight Belgian yeast, a little brown sugar and subtle wood. Taste of red fruits, cherry, Belgian yeast, some bready malts, slight metal, a little brown sugar and subtle spice. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, subtly yeasty, fruity bitterness in the finish. Not what I was expecting, a lot fruitier than a regular dubbel. Subtle metallic hint is a put off but it’s so drinkable and light for a 7%er. Decent.

Dimmig brun öl med beige skum. Doft av kryddig jäst, mörka frukter, banan, karamell och honung. Maltighet och viss beska tillkommer i smaken.

Drank the Premiere with meal of cold and smoked meats, a perfect accompaniment. It is all you could expect from Chimay. Only down was too much foam at the recommended temperature.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
7% ABV. Belgian ale.
Poured out amber. 16°SRM.
Nose is Belgian with dusty wood and stone dust. Mothballs. Not unpleasant but just for me so "Belgian".
Mouthfeel is beery. Palate is nutty with chestnuts and acorns, wheat toast with light honey. Palate is bready with wheat bread coming to the fore the most obviously.
Finish is alcohol then sweet then off.
Little stone dust bitter with a hint of raw minerality.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours reddish brown with a fluffy off-white head and lacing. The aroma is toast, cherry, and alcohol. The taste is toast, cherry, raisin, and wine. It’s pretty smooth. This is good but overrated and a bit overpriced.

Not sure why this a top 50 dubbel. Not actively unpleasant, but inoffensive to the point of bland: A Belgian from central casting
