4.4/5 rDev +2.3%
A- Golden to amber with caramel brown. Not much head or lace. But a good overall abbey ale hazy look. Looks great in the Chimay chalice.
S- Someone said bananas and sure enough you can smell bananas. Also some yeat and raisiny. Nice abbey ale spice. Banana smell not unpleasant.
T- Nice spice notes. Fruity and chewy with a classic abbey ale long finish.
O- Very solid trappist ale.

4.16/5 rDev -3.3%
A: Pours a dark mahogany color with a thick head that fades to lacing.
S: Aroma of fruit, losts of fruit, spices with some sweetness and hint of alcohol.
T: Taste of fruit, some caramel sweetness and spice. Mild bitterness and a dry finish.
F: Moderate body, smooth, well balanced and with a well hidden but warming alcohol feeling. This beer is quite complex as it seems to evolve as it warms.
O: A good world class beer to relax with at the end of the day.
