Spectacular style and most importantly spectacular experience. This brew exudes quality in every respect.
Surprisingly, a highly carbonated pour with really quite a fizzy initial appearance. Murky brown color in the body. Dubbel appearance.
Belgian yeasts are apparent in the nose with some fruits but they are difficult to distinguish specifically.
Mouthfeel is a little on the thin side for the style and there are many better in the mouth than this one.
Great trailblazer for Belgian beers outside of the continent, and its contribution will never be forgotten (at least by me), but this beer seems a little dated. Don’t get me wrong, this is still a classic but with an ever increasing array of wonderful Belgians and Belgian styles in the marketplace, Chimay seems to have lost its edge a little.
