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.

Poured a pale gold body with massive fluffy head that left lace patches down glass (and took forever to die). The aroma has that Belgian yeast/orange citric twang but it has a good amount of tropical fruit aromas as well. These fruit aromas are sweet and there is also a touch of candi sugar so it's a really sweet smelling beer as the spices are minimal. Beer is smooth and light, a little fuller "fluffy" body from the yeast, goes down easy although the backend is a little dry/boozy at times. That is my only complaint of this beer as I find a great balance between minimal spices and citric hops (orange) with a tropical fruit flavors that add sweetness like pineapple, banana, mango(?). Touches of tart fruits like sour apple are poking around as well.
