Surprised at myself for not reviewing this classic sooner..
Cloudy as all hell with a dirty orange-juice with cola colouration. Amazing head retention and massive goops of lacing on the sides of my Chimay chalice..literally a jet stream of fine carbonation bubbles emerging from the bottom of the chalice.
Lot's of yeast and candy sugar with a faint spice note..certainly doesn't overwelm or blow off your socks.
So so good..so so nicely balanced. Perfect combo of sweet, spicy, and bitterness.
Body is firmly in the middle. Has an amazing smoothness given the high carbonation and the high ABV
Easily my favorite out of the three Chimay 'colours'..a 'must try' tripel..

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.
