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.

Pours a hazy pale yellow with a white head. In the aroma, a nice candy sugar dryness. In the taste, a nice candy sugar dryness and a nice yeasty presence. A small bite, but mainly smooth, with a medium bodied mouthfeel. A dry candy sugar and almost fruity like aftertaste. Dry yeast, small fruitiness, and somewhat basic, but quite nice.

Appearance:
The beer pours a very strong and vigorous white and creamy head. the beer itself is a slightly hazy and slightly clear gold.

Smell:
A bready/grainy smell with banana and a touch of the alcohol as well.

Taste:
The beer tastes as it smells and it is delicious! The tastes are complex and varied. Chinay's yeast strain (banana) combines very well with the bitter hops and a bit of alcohol mixes as well. The other flavors include honey, a bit of sugar, and a hint of clove.

Mouthfeel:
Biting carbonation in a medium bodied beer. The beer itself feels pretty smooth.

Overall:
A very good triple and definitely complex. I'll probably pick another bottle of this when I can. This triple is very different from their usual and recommend drinking at least once as long as it lasts.
