A – Beautiful red-mahogany hue, with a small head that quickly vanishes.
S – Nicely malty-sweet with hints of band-aid, cherry and papaya; for Chimay it is underwhelming, for most others it would be quite good.
T – It tastes good, but a bit on the unspectacular side for a Trappist brew; there are mostly pleasant malty and fruity impressions, but it tends towards mediocrity and there is a slight perfume quality that is disconcerting. The perfume character is more pronounced on the finish. It also tastes better well aired-out, as a nutty quality develops that supplants the perfume-y flavor.
M – Nicely balanced between richness, dryness, and effervescence.
D – It is spectacular for pairing with food, especially spicy food.
