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)

Amazing. I was so upset I only purchased one. Sipped slowly and couldn’t fault it. If I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this would be on the shortlist. Hundreds of other reviews will describe the other facets my advice is simply: Buy it, you will enjoy

Cerveza muy interesante. Lo primero que sorprende es la densa capa de espuma con una textura muy agradable. Olor suave y discreto. El gusto es excelente, con algunas notas afrutadas pero con un final seco y ligeramente amargante. Interesante método y tradición de elaboración.

last beer i had with cam in zly casy at the weekend. i think this was also 1 or 2 years old. pours hazy honey orange colour with a white head. aroma of raisins, trifle, coriander and spices. tastes of delicious malts, candy sugar, bubblegum. the aging seemed to have mellowed the hops and herb flavours, which i liked. finish was long and dry. fantastic, and i can only assume all the better for the time its been bottled up

33cl. BBE 2017. Golden hazy with white head and beautiful lacing. Aroma of yeast and mild hops. Soft and smooth. Very easy drinking at all temperatures. Not my go to beer from Chimay, but this one is really refreshing on a hot day.

On-tap at World of Beer in WPB. Poured into a Chimay goblet. How authentic. Golden straw colored with a big fluffy white head that never really goes away. Golden straw colored with a big fluffy white head that never really goes away. A blast of yeastiness, but much more dominated by the fruit notes. Honey sweetness midrange and a bready finish. Delicious, but lacks the complexity of other tripels. Some tripels have an intense dryness that makes me feel thirsty even while drinking it. This one isn’t so dry, but it’s still present. Light bodied, but that’s what I expect from a tripel. One of my old gateway craft beers that I still enjoy from time to time.

Huge white head, good lacing. Rich fruity, spicy, yeasty aroma, sweet spicy taste balanced by bitterness of hops and noble alcohol. Classic tripel.
