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 beerís 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)

USCMustangman (41) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Lots of carbonation and an aroma of fruit and yeast. Bitter, fruity flavor and a nice thick palate. Good beer with lots of flavor complexity but at $3 a beer itís one that iíll save for special occassions.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2006
On tap at Monkís Cafe in Philly. Pours blonde with big bubbles that stick to the side of the glass, and a frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, clove, and some alcohol. Earthy flavor of wheat malt, clove, banana, pear. The alcohol blends in nicely to round out the flavors. Spicy and mildy sweet finish, some dryness. I really enjoyed this because it was it did not have the alcoholic bite that some tripels have, and there was some residual sweetness to tie everything together.

pretty good triple, high carb level, small white head that disipated quickly, aromas of malt and spice, good flavor, a little thin with a spice aftertaste, good triple, but iíll talk a dubbel instead any day of the week.

Seems that my Chimay reviews have dissappeared for the second time! I donít know whatís going on in the database. Regardless, I like the white least of the available Chimay Ales. Good body and great tangy sour wheat flavor. A bit of alcohol in the flavor.

Bottle at home. This is an excellent beer. It has a huge head, not too much alcohol. Itís heavy but very fruity. A very balanced and excellent experience.
