An exceptional brew from Chimay. Hazy, golden appearance with a dense off white head. Fruity aroma and a fine, prickly carbonation level, but considerably smoother than other trippels that are too champagne like. Peppery yeast spiciness pricks at the taste buds. Malt sweetness and fruitiness (subtle grape and apricot?) in the middle. Alcohol warming sensation is pleasant and not overwhelming. Delicious.

Presentation: Poured into a proper Chimay chalice at 't Brugs Beertje in Brugs, Belgium.

Appearance: Hazy and orange with a creamy, sticky white head.

Smell: Overall, clean smelling with some mild spice in the background.

Taste: Sweet / tart balance up-front with a unique bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol notes seem to stay and dominate the mouth. The beer goes crisp, rather dry. More malt sweetness follows along with a very mild tea-like hop flavour that carries thru to the finish. Notes of Concord grape comes to mind.

Notes: Yet another outstanding, unique and complex beer from Abbaye de Scourmont. Wonderful stuff.
