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)

Cloudy peach/light amber color with a white head. Aromas of yeasty esters and phenols. Taste is straight up Belgian yeast/malt combo that is oh so typical these days. Flavors of Belgium. Raise the fucken flag, we are being invaded.

Medium-strong aroma has sweet caramel and a bit alcohol. Bit reddish yellow color with white light head. A bit hazy liquid. Strong taste with flavors of sweet caramel, peach, banana, some hops and yeast. Very balanced with wide taste spectrum. Long, yeasty aftertaste. Light-medium palate with medium carbonation.

Pours a deep golden amber with frothy white foam. Has the aroma of banana, hops, and yeast. Has a mass erection of flavor involving Belgian yeast, hops, banana, and a malty caramelish note. Very good.

Moins intéressante que les autres Chimay, elle reste une bonne trappiste à déguster.

Een lekkere tripe van Chimay. Grasaroma, duidelijke hopsmaak. Drinken met het gist dat in de fles aanwezig is.

bottle. deep golden with one finger head. sweet and lightly fruity. nice yeast and spice. it’s good, but not deserving of the classic status that it’s achieved.
