4.4/5 rDev +2.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Poured from 11.2 oz bottle into a wine goblet.
Appearance: slightly opaque mahogany brown with a nice head which dissipated rather quickly.
Smell: apples and pears right off the bat. There's a nice crisp malt there which you might call a biscuit aroma, and below that a heady yeast aroma which just adds to the experience. It's great!
Taste: tree fruit and a bit of an alcohol bite, but there's also this muted chalkiness which adds an underlayer of flavors which meld together but which I can't really identify; perhaps the creamy mouthfeel is contributing to this chalk perception. It's very good though.
Mouthfeel: enticing creaminess I have come to expect from Chimay.
Drinkability: at 9%, the alcohol really starts to affect the drinkability of this. It is super tasty, but we're talking about a nice dessert or digestif beer here.
Serving type: bottle
