I have seen comments that it's to much for the money. But you get what you pay for if you want the best you pay for it ,while some of the other labels within chimay are great this one is outstanding. This is the best of its kind I have tried dozens of Belgium style beers and this is the best from the floral smell to the sweet taste it is so complex yet so perfectly balanced you will not be displeased with this one. if you are a true beer drinker stop being so cheap and treat your self to pure bliss on earth if God truly made a beer this is it!

A little too yeasty for me. A very solid belgian ale... but if you are looking to spend $$$ on a belgian that is readily- available... would rather go with Unibroue or support my local micro- brews testing out new belgian brews.
