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.

Hazy golden colour, big white head that does not hold for too loong, but leaves a good lace and a ring on the surface. Lots of sediments clearly visible through the bottle. Spicy aroma, with cloves, bay leaf, candy, banana, apricot. Medium to full body, sticky, creamy. Taste is similar to aroma: Cloves, spices, candy,malt, fruits. Special indeed.
