look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

although I've had chimay before, years ago, at the time i knew nothing about Belgian beer and i dont think i liked it. this time around, with the help of BA, i can appreciate it better.

slightly hazy orange, great thick off-white head, no bubbles floating up from the bottom. upon close inspection, held to the light, tiny specks of sediment can be seen floating lazily. spicy juicy fruit and buttery bread. a lot going on in the nose.

up front, no surprise in the taste. not unlike other tripels. however the finish is almost cabernet savignon, dry and strong. tasty, but no la fin du monde. the aftertaste is a little puckering, maybe this is best with food, not alone.

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.
