A. Fairly cloudy as one would expect. Pours with a good solid head which is retained well. Yeast visible in bottom of glass.
S. Yeasty smell. No presents of hops or malt. Slight banana note.
T. Very well rounded with no excessive malt or hops, the yeast being the star of the show, holding this beer together exceptionally without being in anyway overpowering. Slightly bitter finnish.
M. Very good smooth mouth feel.
O. Out of the four beers tasted during this small tasting this stood out in a different class. Exceptionally well balanced beer. As a personal note I prefer the red and blue Chimay's, the bitterness in this one not personally desired so much in this style.

Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
Serving type: on-tap
