Postmortem Brew Review
Copper in color with a slight haze.
Belgian yeast nose with fruity apricot scents.
Off-white creamy head. Lacing coats the glass.
Head simmers to a wisp leaving yeasty residues.
Mouth feel is silky. Apricot flavored taste; slight bitterness in finish.
Smooth, medium body.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy 
Trappist Monks make perfection inside the walls of their monasteries as well as inside the walls of brown bottles. Here's one that is a simply sensational, take-your-time-why-don't-you kind of ale.  Sit back, enjoy the day, have a cigar if you prefer. Or maybe some great cheese or fruits. It's up to you; it's your day. So do with it what you wish.

Celebrate the day! Stop and smell the roses with any Chimay and you'll see the world through a different lens. Consistently fine crafted ales from this house. Re-fermented in the bottle, as you would expect from the Belgians.
