COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chimay Tripel, with its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast. The beer’s flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma. The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.
Ingredients: Water, malted barley, wheat starch, sugar, hop extract and yeast. See Protz (beer-pages.com/protz/features/chimay.htm) and John White (www.whitebeertravels.co.uk/chimay.html)

Batavi (96) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2015
Uitgeschonken in Chimay bokaal, goudblond troebel bier, met volle witte schuimkraag. De schuimkraag heeft een romige structuur, en zakt na enkele minuten terug tot een fijne schuimring. Het bier geeft aroma's vrij van gedroogd fruit en specerijen. De smaak van deze Tripel is net als bij de andere Chimay Trappist bieren, zacht en heeft een uitstekend gebalanceerd smaakpallet. Eerst gedroogd fruit, vooral rozijnen, daarna de kruidigheid van specerijen die kenmerkend zijn voor een tripel; koriander, nootmuskaat en iets kaneel. De afdronk is licht zoet en met een aangename hop bitterheid. Zoals alle Trappist bieren is de Chimay Tripel, weer van uitstekende kwaliteit. Mooie complexe tripel, behoort tot de betere Belgische tripel bieren.

BiraSevdasi (10) - TURKEY - MAY 2, 2015
One of my favourite Trappist beers. I don’t know why but I love this beer very much. Bottle both 33cl and 75cl. Pours a white thick head equals to 2-3 fingers and it is very persistent. Smell: Very fruity and spicy. Muscat grape, citrus, herbal hop notes. Taste: In addition to the flavours I noted in the smell, I detected hints of honey. Lemon and orange notes are also available. Good finish with sweet and herbal notes.
