Chimay 150 is a refreshing beer, strong but refined, with a balanced flavor and floral scent, accompanied by aromas of dried fruits and spices. It has an ABV of 10%. Saaz and Hallertau Mittelfrüh, two hops known for their superior quality and finesse, are blended and a secret spice is added to produce this unique taste.

Chimay 150 is the result of the experience of generations of brewers who have succeeded one another for 150 years in Chimay's brewery. A limited edition (150,000 bottles) of Chimay 150 was brewed for the very first time for the brewery's 150th anniversary in 2021.

Due to the strong demand of the privileged few who had the opportunity to taste it, Chimay decided to add this exceptional

Also known as "Spéciale Cent Cinquante" and "Chimay - Green"

33 cl bottle from Binny's poured into a Chimay chalice. Heavy head, long lasting lacing. Straw yellow color, cloudy. Alcohol is there, not overly hoppy, but has that classic Belgian Trappist taste. Balanced. Glad I have 3 more bottles.

33 cL bottle poured into a Belgian ale tulip, in Toulouse, France. Fine head rears itself, stays puffy, laces on down. Cloudy gold appearance.
The word ‘floral’ is what pops off the nose first. ‘Unique’ would be next. Honeyed apricot slices on a slice of fresh baked bread.
Taste is, again, unique, in the world of Belgian Strong Ales. Long chew of them Saaz hops, balanced by a spicy jazz rhythm, the well hidden ABV reveals itself late in the drink. Great bitter note destroys the sweetness most Strong Belgians have. Very nice!
Mouthfeel is typical for the style, and the carbonation is smooth.
Overall, the spice sets this brew apart from its contemporaries. I could drink these all evening.

Bottle from the magnificent Woodman’s in Green Bay. Poured into Rochefort tulip a week later. Not as perfect as a tripel but you know it’s delicious.

The best Chimay I have had so far. Although, it has a 10% Abv it goes down smooth.

Best chimay i have tried i think. It was a bottle pour. Rivals my prference for blue but definitely has a certain spiced edge that the other offerings dont have. Kinda expensive. Get some!

750 bottle of Chimay Cent Cinquante. Golden with some chill haze dense white head and lace. Booze spice herbal vanilla honey apricot aroma. Medium sweet (less than expected, which is great) honey ceral vanilla with boozy spicy herbal finisf and fine lively carbo in full body blends it together perfectly. EXCELLENT.

Chimay calls this a "Blond" on the Label, but it is very much a Tripel.A really good one at that.

Ooh this is a big hitter. Balling with murky gold haze, bitter hops and a capped with a foamy massive head this one is not meek at heart. There's spice, there's florals, there is buubly effervescence, it hits big on nose and mouth and the ABV is well masked. Oof.
