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)

Medium offwhite head. Hazy, dark orange body with yeast particles. Sweet bready, yeasty aroma with strong fruity notes (banana?) and spice. Taste is sharp, sweet licorice and spice with bitter background. Dry, light, spicy aftertaste. Spicy taste lingers. Very, very good. A world classic. (0.33 bottle.)

Another Great Belgian Ale from Chimay. Not as good at Chimay Red in my opinion, but still worth the effort.

thewolf (11931) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 New rating from Rema 1000. Pours light hazy orange golden with a medium, staying, creamy white head. Aroma has sweet malts, doughy, esters, light caramel. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has sweet malts, grassy bitterness, somewhat light, grainy notes, mild esters. Crisp in the malts, no sign of alcohol. Pale orange golden colour with good white head. Caramel and fruit in the aroma. Quite hoppy and vinious but still fruity sweet. 5/4/7/3/12

A hazy golden colour with a fine head which dissipates only after a couple of minutes. It is quite hoppy with a yeasty flavour with a hint of fruit. What more can I say, another well done Abbey ale.
