4.5/5  rDev +9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The Chimay White was kind of better than I had expected and it is also the last of the 3
Chimay beers (except the Doree) that I am aiming to taste. The Chimay White has been
sitting in my fridge for at least 3 weeks since I bought it and on the night of tasting,
I poured the contents from the bottle into my Chimay Chalice. The slightly dark golden ale
smells of aromatic floral hops with subtle yeasty and malty notes. It pours out with a
generous head (I sloshed it a little to create a larger head - I made a more perfect pour
this time) which dissipates fairly quickly leaving fair lacing. The beer tasted yeasty,
malty and more importantly with a neat blend of spices. The mouthfeel was close to full
bodied and the taste was very strong with subtle fruity tones; it is significantly better
than the Maredsous 6 Blond which I had tried the day before. The after taste was yeasty,
malty and spicy and the fruity tones were further pronounced and I thinK I can compare it
to fresh green grapes and peach. The after taste was also rather strong though it was not
as lasting as I may have desired. At 8 ABV the Chimay White is extremely smooth and boasts
of a very high drinkability but I do not reccomend quaffing a premium beer like this one.
All in all, a great beer from the great brewers and one of my favourite Belgian Blond Ales.
Do also note that the Chimay White is a Tripel and I believe I prefer this Tripel brew to
the Westmalle Tripel (although Westmalle's Dubbel is definitely better than Chimay's Red).
Having tried these 3 Chimays, it would be a short while before I revisit them (maybe) and
what I have to say is Chimay is utterly impressive and their red blue and white hybrids
are living witnesses tried and loved by many.

4.03/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

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.
