Another great beer from Chimay. A little bit of after taste is probably the only thing bad I noticed....but that wouldn't discourage me to get it again.

Pours a nice brown with a thick bubbly head. The lace retains well until the end of the drink, in which it disappears entirely. Great aroma that has elements of sweet malt, dry fruits and alcohol. Taste is malty, fruity, boozy and with a slightly bitter dry finish. Feel is full bodied. Little carbonation.
Overall, this is a good beer but not on the level of other Belgians I've tried. Still, I wouldn't mind having again.
