Chimay Blanche

I guess Blanche is what this is called. It doesn't really say on the label.

Chimay Blanche

This one was not available at my usual LCBO, so I asked my wife if she could stop at one near my work on her way to pick me up on Friday.

I loved the Chimay Premiere, so I had high hopes for this one. It did not disappoint. Chalk up another for the Monks! :)

The head initially worried me, being very similar to the Orval that I wrote about last week. Thankfully that's as close to being similar as it got.

The bottle is cute. :) My daughter thought so as well.

The aroma was lightly citrus.

The colour, a cloudy golden.

The taste, lightly citrus with a light hoppy finish.

The alcohol was a hefty 8%, so be careful. :)

I really enjoyed this beer, and there's a second one sitting in my fridge for tonight. So far, Chimay is 2 for 2 on my list. They have a few other flavours, but I've yet to find them anywhere local.
