Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, spice, citrus juice, and dried citrus peel aromas. Taste is much the same with tea, spice, citrus fruit, and citrus peel flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty, light, and super easy to drink.

Serving type: bottle.

The amazing opportunity to enjoy this monk-only elixir finds me at the tasting room of the most famous of all Trappist brewers in Chimay concluding a very in depth tour. With so much finesse and succulence I can easily understand and appreciate why this beer clocks in under 4%, as a single chalice of the ale is hardly enough.

Doree (gold cap) decants into the chalice with a playful and sprite carbonation that dances about the liquid until the foam separates from the beer and leaves it nearly bright in clarity to show off its shiny golden hue. Ample carbonation fuels the light and fluffy cotton head that captures all the perfumy aromatics to come.

Seemingly of witbier, the aromas of coriander and curacao leap from the rim with a zesty and awakening scent- quite perfumy indeed as the spices are supported with the soft honey suckle sweetness and freshly kilned grain that rounds out the vibrant nose.

Moderate flavors of malt capture the crisp and clean sweetness of honey, powdered sugar, and slight candy. Fresh baking breads, cracker-like crispness, and pleasantly mild grain flavors deliver the briskness of German lagers but the spice/fruit interplay from yeast provides the complexity and balance with only the most modest glimpse into the herbal hop world. The almost-minty, lemongrass and floral character of hops are perfect complements to the coriander and curacao orange peel that provide a juicy and refreshing taste of tangerines and pez candies in the most elegant and delicate portrayal.

Modest in mouthfeel, the zesty prick of carbonation allows for a semi-champagne like lively texture that extends the floral and spicy flavors and minty-warm alcohols well into finish. Ultimately dry and refreshing, the beer seems to dissolve much like cotton candy as soon as the beer hits the middle of the palate and leads to an effortless and digestible beer event.

The first whiff of the soft spices makes me think witbier, but after a few sips, I didn't feel that I needed the unmalted wheat to make any impact at all. A base of pilsner malt and a few other aromatic malts make yet another formidable base beer for these floral and perfumy spice to rise- just another majestic flavor combination that result from the endless artistry of the brewing monks of Chimay!

A very special thanks goes to Fabrice Bordon for an informative and entertaining tour with tasting, and for his gentlemanly companionship for lunch at their cafe.

Thanks to TurdFurgison for opening this bottle. Served in my Cantillon tulip.

Pours yields a hazy straw-colored liquid with a pretty good white head and a bit of lacing as it goes down. The nose is nice but doesnt offer all that much. Quite a bit of bready yeast and not too much else. The taste is also quite full of baking bread as well as a bit of mild fruit. Mouthfeel is the highlight here for me with a really nice body and good carbonation. Nearly perfect for a table beer. Drinkability is good, not breast. Thanks again to Eric for helping me finish off the Chimay collection of beers. Considering that I bought all the others at a local shop, I really owe Eric yet again.

Bottle: Poured a hazy golden beer with a huge head with just above standard retention. Aroma is comprised of quite strong malt with some spice mix. Taste is quite refreshing with again the malt hitting you at first and ending with some noticeable spice mix. The body is thinner then the other Chimay but the carbonation is great. Overall, this is a very refreshing beer but not up to the standard of the other Chimay.

10 ounce pour - $8.00 at Trappeze Pub in Athens, Georgia.

Appearance: Served up a near clear, yellow-gold body with a white, foaming head.

Smell: Hmm. Smells a little like a top-shelf soap. What's wrong with some humble Kroger-bought 10 for $10 Softsoap? Cereal-scented malts, lemon peel and aromatic fresh-cut flowers.

Taste: A light touch of pils malts, scantly cereal-esque and hay-hinting. Medium level of sweetness had. Some citrus, some spicy phenols and varying petals. As with the aroma, it's predominately lemony and soapy. Modestly bitter. Drying, lightly crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Well, I was hoping for something bright, light and refreshing. Instead, got some old lady soap. Disappointing, considering it's a Chimay release.

Bottle acquired at the beer shoppe in Ghent and poured into a Trappistenbier goblet in Antwerp, Belgium. Reviewed live.

A: Pours a two finger head of no real cream, bad thickness (i.e. it's rather thin), and really good retention. Colour is a hazy murky dark gold.

Sm: Musty scent of lemon citrus esters, cream, and soft barley body. Mild strength scent.

T: Delicately soft cream is most prominent on the open, but present throughout. Light and balanced lemon (and perchance grapefruit but I'm not sure) fruit ester hops entre just before the midpoint and stay through the finish, which is a nice touch. The barley is restrained and subtle, but still strong enough to support the clever hop layering. Complex yet light and refreshing. Wonderfully balanced and very well built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, complements the flavour of the body. Brilliantly delicate and light.

Dr: An average ABV refreshingly light beer that is wonderful for a summer afternoon. Well priced despite its rarity and very worth trying for anyone that likes a good beer. Would even satisfy the missus.

Pours very mildly hazed gold; much cloudier when the whole bottle is poured in. Thick and frothy white head. Nose is great. Floral, yeasty, bready and sweet nose. Flavor is good. A bit earthy. Dough and ink thing going on. Smooth feel. It's a good Belgian ale, for sure. Not quite up to the level of all of Chimay's other brews, but I can appreciate it.

330 ml bottle into signature chalice, bottled on 8/18/2015. Pours lightly hazy bright golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, peach, pear, apple, coriander, clove, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon zest, orange peel, peach, pear, apple, coriander, clove, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange peel, coriander, peach, pear, apple, clove, peppercorn, wheat, cracker, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of bright fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Not too dry after the finish. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is an excellent Belgian pale ale. All around great robustness, complexity, and balance of bright fruity/earthy yeast, spices, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and faint amber highlights. The beer has a three finger tall sudsy foamy pillowy bright white head that very slowly reduces to a very thick (slightly more than one finger tall) layer covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grainy pale malts along with moderate aromas of spicy Belgian yeast and light aromas of citrus/lemon rind.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy + pale malts with just a hint of sweetness (light fruit - apple). That is followed by light to moderate flavors of spicy Belgian yeast and just a hint of citrus/lemon rind. Light amounts of bitterness which fades away pretty quickly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of lively carbonation.

O: Very easy to drink and much "lighter" than the other Chimay offerings. Alcohol is well hidden and this one is quite enjoyable. Glad that bottles are finally available here in the US.

2007 vintage. On my quest to drink all the Trappist ales know to man, I had to slay the rare Chimay. I did drink this out of my Chimay goblet but I regret not taking a photo of the goblet with the bottle and not serving this beer with Chimay cheese or with other bottles of Chimay.

So, the beer is yellow, light, thin white head of small bubbles, some carbonation, some retention, some lacing, not a lot of anything but looks like beer.

The aroma is sweet like candy is sweet, malty and yeasty. Subtle but present.

Beer is thin, thinner than expected and I expected a thin beer. It's sweet and bready on the palate. Mildly carbonated overall but still quite good. The finish is nice, I would call this a Belgian session ale.

2007 bottle poured into a snifter. This brew appears a light golden color with a little bit of haze about it. A finger of creamy white fluff sits atop the brew. Bubbles of carbonation rise slowly through the body collecting across the top in support of the head. As the cap slowly fades, it leaves spots of lacing sticking to the glass. A light swirl revives the cap back to a creamy topping.

The smell of this brew is quite sweet reminiscent of belgian candy sugar mixed with something along the lines of orange marmalade and a touch of vanilla. There is a light citrus hop aspect mixed with some clove spiciness and a yeast quality very familiar to the typical Chimay offering.

The taste is earthy to almost grassy with an initial sweetness of belgian candy sugar mixed with a yeasty quality. Some mild orange rind flavoring is present that fades into more of an earthy to dirt flavoring that is mildly cheese-like. The aftertaste is a mixture of earth, mild belgian candy character, yeast spiciness and some fruity notes almost like pear or apple. Lots of earthen flavors run throughout this brew.

This is a very light bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. Throughout the entire experience it has a watery feel about it to the point where I am struggling to even believe that this is 4.8% abv, it seems much less. It is easy drinking and I could see myself drinking a bunch of these if given the opportunity but the hassle to acquire a bottle was overall not worth it.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!

2007 vintage

The appearance is orange hued and slightly translucent. The beer is full of carbonation and appears extremely effervescent. I thoroughly enjoyed the aroma, which is rich with yeast and citrus scents. The flavor is tasty, though the aroma is even better. The body is extremely thin, giving the beer a watery feel on the palate. While this may adversely affect the mouthfeel, this ale is extremely drinkable, and it would be easy to throw back a few of these in a session.

What's this? A new Chimay?! I am gonna be all over that. Poured from the bottle into a Chimay chalice.

Soft topped bone white, slow decant and angled pour gives not much head, but manages to keep it's very soupy puck on top at a simple finger. Very fine head bubbles almost nitrous looking too. Body color appears unfiltered, but has a simple glow of lemon to orange as the tapering gets close to the top. Fine carbonation continues up to the top to keep the head repopulated. Solid looker.

What a great aroma. Full of fruit and wonderful sweetness and spice. Allspice to clove like sweetness, not even dry or hot. Sweet bready notes of honey, maybe a touch of vanilla, oranges and even some mild lemon fruit zesty quality. Has a wonderful angel food cake like smell to it, perhaps a hint of strawberry peaking out of this as well. Great stuff.

Palate though is much more subdued it seems. Lots of mineral and perrier like carbonated water flavors that really cut through. Hints of mild honey and the carbonation gives to some dioxide and pepper rush on the finish. Gaseous palate. Not much depth for this either even for a lighter patersbier/wit/Belgian Pale ale whatever you want to direct the style notes towards. Interestingly the fruit forward aroma and flavor seems to only exist in the aftertaste, in airy gulps and breaths after the swallow.

It's just way too carbonated and without much malt depth unfortunately. Happy to have tried it, but even for a lighter Belgian this isn't giving me that much joy. Perhaps I expected too much, but no big complaints that's for sure.

Chinay's house-only beer now comes in the bottle! Out of a 330 ml stubby bottle, on to the beer:

A soapy, cracking head sits on top this morning sunshine colored beer. The body shows cloudiness, and frothy retention sticks around. The aroma brings not only a delicate smell, but a delightful one too. With its coriander, orange peel, grass, it smells closer to a well-done witbier.

Doree isdry, crisp, and extremely refreshing. The orange peel is a great addition, plus vague fruits and the soft fruity yeast present makes this beer a gem. It's a light bodied beer that is also soft and creamy.

You can tell that I liked this one a lot. Good call for shipping this to the US, Chimay!

As the label says, this was once reserved only for the monks and guests at the monastery, but can now be easily found along with the 3 other Chimay beers.
Pours very hazy golden, one finger dense white head with great retention
Yeasts take center stage in the aroma, with tons of spices, then some honey, sweet grain, blond fruits and sponge cake.
Taste starts with juicy tutti frutti (apples, pears, oranges, lemon, even some pineapple and papaya), settled on some light bready malts. Spicy yeasts follow quick, with tons of clove, coriander, lemongrass, flowers, faint anise, cardamom, peppercorn, dry citrus peel, touch of sage. There's also some dirty green hay funk, straw, faint barnyard. Finish is a bit dry, a bit bitter, and the spices just keep going on.
Medium body and carbonation, somewhat crisp and springtimey, this is incredibly refreshing.
The big bag of spices might scare people unaccustomed with Belgian brews, this one being an extreme at that, but i personally found it very tasty. Incredible yeasts.

33 cL bottle purchased from Etre Gourmet.

Large, dense white foam head settles over a hazed dark golden, slightly amber color. Nose of bread and Belgian yeast, floral hop notes, lemon and zest, tangerine, coriander and orange. Flavor is floral and citrusy, tastes like a Belgian wit and Belgian Pale crossed with each other. Medium full body, with strong carbonation and a crisp, slightly hoppy finish. Very refreshing and enjoyable, would seek out for the novelty.

LOOK: Bright gold nearly peach color with a bubbly, rocky white foam head that protrudes out of the snifter with a careful pour. Just slightly hazy but no sediment.

SMELL: Earthy nose of musty yeast, wheat and coriander. Dry spices really are evident in the nose, as well as farmhouse and a hint of citrus.

TASTE: Exceptionally clean witbier flavor, lemongrass, coriander, grassy hops, peach, lemon meringue creme, wheat bread, and cracker. Light bitterness, and very dry from the spice. Herbal, slightly lemony hop paired to citrus peel and a bready flavor also. Wheat, citrus and spice would be the three most prominent flavors in a complex beer having a rather simple recipe. Chimay just makes great beer.

FEEL: Medium bodied with ample carbonation, super dry for a 4.8% brew. Lingering spice and vague rustic farmhouse flavor really makes it special.

OVERALL: A clean, every day beer from and typically for Chimay Monastery Monks and visitors. Champagne like that and very drinkable, this is a special beer for me personally as it has been a long time want to review it. A class example of the witbier style with a hint of farmhouse.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a cloudy medium straw amber with a huge three finger white head with good retention and thick lacing. Aroma of sharp spices; pepper, coriander and clove, Belgian and saison style yeast, light pear juice. Flavor starts with light apple an pear juice, Belgian yeast and coriander, then dries out quite a bit to a saison-like dry champagne, coriander and clove finish, peppery. Light to medium bodied with strong, peppery carbonation. An interesting light Belgian ale with clear evidence of the Chimay yeast and nice light fruit character. The finish is perhaps a bit too light to carry the strong spicing, leaving the bitter coriander and clove flavors a bit stranded. Overall well crafted and refreshing as expected from Chimay. As a huge fan of blue and the tripel, the lighter flavors of this left me wishing for the intensity of those ales. A great choice if a more sessionable version is appropriate. I haven't seen this version before and glad to have the chance to try it.

- ale brewed with spices, orange peel and corriander.

A: A rolling white cap consumes the greater volume of the duvel chalice, 3+ inches with a lengthy stay. Receeding to a foamy, sloppy covering, it leaves large chunks of soapy lacing on the vessel walls. Orange coloring, good clarity with a strong sense of carbonation.

S: Aroma was fresh and fruity, applesauce, wet lemon, and juicy pear. Fruity mentions of apricot and grapes with a bit of straw on the finish.

T: Flavor was fruity, apple, white grapes, juicy pear with sweet fruit and lightly dry pilsner malting. Very clean, banana hints from the yeast, crisp flavor with spicing of cinnamon and spicy floral hops. Oranges with hints of bubblegum yeastiness and lingering grapefruit, pepper and melon-straw on the finish.

M: Sharp mouthful, crisp feel, good tingle on the tongue's edges and lips.

O: Overall its hard to argue with chimay products, especially thier blue. Very clean, exceptionally crisp and sharp with a fresh wet fruitiness. very good overall.

From the stubby 11.2 fl. oz. bottle marked L14-570. Sampled on March 8, 2015.

It pours a cloudy pale yellow leading up to a long lasting white fizzy head.

The aroma is both fruity and spicy. And by fruit I think orange or lemon zest. Toasted malts too.

Light and refreshing body.

The flavor focuses on the spicy character but the orange/lemon fruitiness is not far off. I have had the Chimay Red and Blue many times but it was nice to find one from them I had not had.

The colour is cool orange (25 EBC), the liquid is cloudy. The finger thick head is white and airy, it sinks quite quickly to a tin lid leaving no lacing.

The smell is sweet with notes of marzipan, cloves, bitter oranges, dough and clean bitter flavours. Tangly hints of apricots and lime peels.

The taste is dry and a bit tart with growing bitterness. Tart notes of lime and bitter hops. Some spicy notes like cloves and cardamon. Some soap-like phenol in the background. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is dry and a bit spicy with hints of Belgian yeast and some raw meats. The finish is mild with some dough and phenols.

The carbonation is very strong, the few bubbles are large and sharp. The liquid is dry and quite light.

A light and very refreshing Belgian blonde. Enjoyable.

I brought back 2 bottles of this (2008) from Belgium last month, and am now celebrating with a Chimay night (Doree, then Red, then Blue). This beer was very light colored, light yellow straw, until I poured the yeast in from the bottom of the bottle. That darkened things up a lot, and now the beer is murky dark yellow color. The foam was about 1-2 fingers but quickly receded to a thin but lasting film. The smell is a little yeasty-estery, maybe a little lemon also. The taste is nice, actually very flavorful for a 4.8% beer. Light yeast flavors are dominant, very easy drinking and tasty. The body is pretty watery but not unexpectedly so given the low ABV. A must-try for fans of Trappist beers, as this is supposedly the only beer in the Chimay line-up enjoyed regularly by the monks of Scourmont.

I drank this from a 12oz bottle into my Rochefort chalice.

The beer pours medium honey murky gold with a decent amount of carbonation. A big white head bubbles about a couple fingers but fades quickly to a little soap on the sides. The lacing is ok.

The aroma is light mostly hops and light flowers.

The taste is great, I wasn't expecting much but its light but has tons of flavor and totally drinkable. This is by favorite belgian pale ale by far. There is some nice sweetness, light hops, and a great floral finish.

The feel is nice, totally drinkable.

My favorite belgian pale ale, my favorite Chimay. What else can you say?

Pear and apple esters in aroma, with a hint of plastic phenols and coriander. Flavor is fairly appley, with coriander adding an odd smokiness mid palate. The finish is dry and modestly bitter. Hints of pear skin weave throughout.
