One of my favorite beers. Surprisingly smooth and pure. I like this better than the Grand Reserve because it's a little lighter.

12/30/15 - Tasting in HB. 12oz bottle into a goblet. Small off white head that disappeared quickly. Pours a dark copper/light burgundy hazy color. High carbonation and body. Aroma is malt, yeast, figs, raisins, sweet, apricots. Taste is brown sugar, raisins, caramel. Great beer, world class!

My favorite of the Belgians that Ron brought me.

Fantastic. Really well balanced for a Belgian. Not too saison-y. Plenty of malt and hops to balance the brightness. Really well done.

I don't like it but don't know enough to adequately describe why- it's 'yeasty'...strange taste and after taste and hard to enjoy. I've really liked the other chinmays I've had.

Wife thought it was all right. She prefers Maudite though

Smooth neutral well balanced ale with a wheat hint. Slightly sweet biscuit and caramel. Very drinkable.

True to style, this Belgian ale is very bready. Big-bodied, dark, beautiful beer. There are better beers for the money, but Chimay is never a bad choice.
