Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Todd on 08-19-2012

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

750ml corked and caged bottle served in a snifter. Pours a straw-gold with a quarter inch, bright white head that dissipates into a tight band around the shoulders. Nose expresses banana phenols and a grassy quality. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of some medicinal notes. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively, almost crisp, carbonation. Overall, a decent example of the style but not on par with the price point.
