I enjoyed Chimay White from a 25.4 oz. bottle into a chilled Chimay logo chalice, as it seems like the colder the better for this Belgian classic.
The color is solid golden and the beer pours with a little bit of lacing that fades away quickly.
The aroma really brought me in. While not overpowering, this beer smells like it has a little bit of wheat and citrus flavor, and the alcohol was detectable but not offensive.The overall blend of whatever they put in this beer smells very inviting!
The mouthfeel was a bit more mellow than some of the other Belgian Tripel brands I've tried. I didn't detect as much carbonation as a La Fin Du Monde or Delirium Tremens.
Chimay White tastes great, and it's extremely drinkable despite the 8% ABV. It's pretty easy to knock back 2 of the 25.4s, and it leaves you feeling fantastic. My friends and I have noticed that hangovers seem to be non-existent with Chimay White!
Fans of Belgian Tripel style beer should consider this a must-try. Chmiay White is one of the best.
