It is always a pleasure to drink a Chimay...
When I cracked open the bottle and poured into a Chimay Chalice (of course)... I found a deep and cloudy reddish brown color topped by a light tan and medium density head. I pour the sediment into the chalice... I feel it ads character and therefore the cloudiness.
Smells of sweet flowers, bananas foster, maybe some grape, and yeast.
Sweet and strong. Tastes of figs and wine soaked bread. Alcohol is prominent throughout and I also taste a hint of grape and spices( coriander and clove mostly)
Pops on the tongue like a mild form of liquid pop rocks and the high ABV deglazes the mouth but it does not cling, linger, or lazy about. Very vibrant feel.
