750 mL bottle, with a cork date that seems to read "02/11." Poured into a Duvel tulip.

The beer is a hazy, cloudy peach color. The head is almost too persistent. A solid wall of meringue-like, marshmallow foam last and lasts, and there's two fingers' worth at least. Scattered lacing around my glass.

An explosion of ester fruits and citrus in the aroma. Pure, vibrant bananas and bubblegum. Wheat and bread. There's a little bit of lemon zest to round things out. Sweet overall.

The taste is markedly more complex than the (nonetheless pleasant) aroma. Those Belgian yeast characteristics come through, along with a more evident citrus profile. Candied orange peel is in full force. There's also a very nice peppery kick that tempers the sweetness.

Wonderful mouthfeel, effervescent and lush. I could see this being a year-round staple.

A really excellent tripel, and a modicum of the style. A classic.

Beautiful hazy peach colour, nice carbonation. Chimay White has such a delicious aroma, chocolate spread and strawberries on crusty toasted bread.. divine. The only thing I can fault in the flavour is it's slightly tart, otherwise it's a toasty, biscuity follow through on the smell.

A- lovely golden color with a nice head that persisted
S- slightly spicy with subtle fruit undertones and a nice even beer smell
T- nice spice taste that mellows with a rather dry finish
M- medium body that you can definitely feel but doesn't feel weighted down in the mouth. very smooth for at 8% beer
O- it was drawn for me in the appropriate glass and even at $12 for just over 8 oz, I loved it
