Enjoyed this stubby bottle out of a large chimay goblet glass.

A: Pours a hazy orange color with a thick, frothy, white, head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail down the glass and ending in a solid persistent lace.

S: Spicy yeasty aroma with hints of citrus in the background.

T: More bitter than sweet with a yeasty flavor. Hints of Belgian candy and citrus and finishes very dry.

M: Medium body and high carbonation.

O: Superb Belgian tripel. A little high on the carbonation but it blends in nicely with the yeast and hops to become easily drinkable.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It has a nice cloudy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice thick off-white head that dies down very slowly and leaves some lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of citrusy notes, bananas, spices and yeast.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a nice critusy and fruity character to it, slight hop bitterness with spices and yeast giving it a nice balance.

Mouthfeel: It has a high carbonation with a solid overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Bottle to Chimay Goblet
11.2 oz

Dont understand the bottle code, so oh well.
Purchased a single 11.2 from Bevmo, Chino Hills, CA

App- A very nice looking yellow/soft butter color with a two finger very slow receding head that doesnt leave any cling or lace but looks like a fully loaded pitri dish or pond layer.

Smell- "Is that cheap beer" says my wife. No hunny its not. I was a tad bit dissapointed in the nose. It was a bit like old something, but maybe a tad soapy. Lacking a full popping yeast and some spice. More along the lines of a lager to me.

Taste- It's just okay. Its not the best tripel I have had but it isnt the worst. Its fairly soft with a good booze note and the 8% comes acoss fairly well. Like the nose. Fairly buttery and lemony with some nice spice tinges.

Mouth- Light/medium bodied and a medium fairly bubbly carbonation level. Leaves a bit of hay, yeast and damp flavors behind. Fairly spicy.

Drink- Well 2 of 3 Chimay just havent delivered. I am really hoping when I re-buy a Blue it delivers a lot better. Ill probably come back to a large format as I hear they do better with flavors.
