Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: This special edition is a full bodied and distinctive strong beer developed within the abbey to celebrate and honour the 150th anniversary of the brewery. Produced with 100% natural ingredients,its pale golden robe and champagne sparkle is topped by a rich white head of foam. The distinctive bouquet evokes the rich fruity and complex notes of the Chimay yeast in harmony with a delicate spicy note and the fragrance of fresh noble hops. At 10% alcohol, the flavour is full bodied and complex with a slight but refreshing tang note and a crisp hop finish that will delight the palate.

Oooh! Special and Chimay! Two of my favorite words. :) Lots of carbonation, it pours a pale straw color with a very active white head. The smell has more pronounced citrus than any Chimay I've had before. Oranges and sugar and lemons. I think that's what someone is made of but I've drank since then. The taste is UNBELIEVABLE! Oranges, biscuits, a little pepper, a little caramel, a hint of wood. It's like a rustic grocery store in a bottle. Mouthfeel is tingly and slick. Like me after I've finished this. Wow. Truly stupendous, the best Chimay I've had.

It has strong carbonation, the cork almost shot a hole in the ceiling, but it still pours easily. I was greeted by a fluffy white head that dissipated quickly leaving a nice lacing on the glass. The beer has a clear yellow/straw appearance. Semi-sweet smell (peppermint?), however no specific fruit aromas noted, but there was an almost juicy fruit aroma. Very fizzy mouth-feel and has a tart taste at the end. Malt is the dominant flavor with fermented grapes. Nice dry finish.
