DATE TASTED: February 10, 2014... GLASSWARE: Chimay 150th anniversary goblet...OCCASION: PSU/Illinois Sunday... APPEARANCE: dark mahogany body; thick, creamy off-white head that clings to the glass; cascading lacing... AROMA: bright, aromatic hops; some apple and pear bake in a soft, doughy aura; some ginger or allspice as well...PALATE: almost light-bodied, dry, and beguilingly drinkable presence; smooth and inviting...TASTE: grape, grapefruit, and soft pine resin--soft, pleasant, after-dinner cordial warmth; slightly acidic... OVERALL: revisiting the first beer to make me say, "Whoa," Keanu style--and the beer does not disappoint to create a drinking experience where the beer IS the moment...the Chimay family grows in strength, but the opener in the sampler outperforms most other breweries' "first-ups by a long shot with drinkability and strength to spare...
