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)

Docavey (42) - Lehigh Acres, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2016
Tasted from the bottle 750 ML with Marc. This is my favorite from the three pack. Nose is not as good as the rest. This is a great beer! Orange golden cloudy color. Long lasting white head. Fruity with pineapple taste but good balanced hops and 8% alcohol. Smooth and easy to drink for a quality drink. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LeWorm (45) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2016
En bouteille. Superbe couleur orange, tête magnifique bien blanche qui dure... Nez de malts et de bananes. Sucrée en bouche, amertume très douce. Amertume qui reste sur un final long. Alcool bien caché. Une excellente trappiste.

zimbo (866) - SCOTLAND - APR 11, 2016
With the ’modern’ Chimay signature nose this sweet smelling lightish russett coloured beer squeezes itself into the triple catehory. Some complexity and carby acidity is evident but this lacks definition and comes across as somewhat four square.
