Tasting of Belgian Trappist beers....
83An enjoyable dark golden beer from the latest recruit to the Trappist brewers' fraternity.
Chimay Blue / Grande Réserve
80Renowned port-like beer in a vintage-dated bottle. A little less chewiness would make it even more of a treat.
Chimay Red Premiere
75A complex red ale that has bags of flavour but lacks a little refinement.
Chimay White / Cinq Cents
75Flavour-packed, but a little chewy, dark golden strong ale.
90A bit of a wild child. A bone dry amber beer partially fermented with a yeast that creates an acidic sourness. Totally refreshing and complex.
Trappistes Rochefort 10
95Outstanding ruby ale with an abundance of taste.
Trappistes Rochefort 6
95A red-amber beer that is notably thinner than its stablemate above (and the Rochefort 8 that falls between the two), but carrying similar flavours. Benefits hugely from a delicate finish.
75A pleasant bright ruby coloured ale that could use more depth of character.
73The dryness and complexity are impressive but this golden ale – widely recognised as the benchmark for the tripel style – is too obviously alcoholic.
