Just bought a gift set which includes a bottle of the Premier, Grand Reserve and the Tripel. Plus the awesome Chimay glass which I have wanted for a long time now.
A: Pours a cloudy copper with a medium light tan head. Nice lacing and fairly big carbonation.
S: This needs to set a bit and warm before the aromas come out. Fermented fruits (bananna), corriander, spices & rich malts.
T: Flavor is tartish malts, fruits, and light spices.
M: Pretty tart and sharp with a richness that balances everything out.
D: This is a style that I would not drink everyday. IMO it is meant to be savored and should be a treat every now and then.
Serving type: bottle
