4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml - 2004 - Aroma is sweet candi sugar, Belgian yeast, corriander, and lemon zest. Pours clear golden color with constant bubbles cascading up my trappist glass. Frothy white head sticks around and leaves great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a little bubblegum showing up. Hides alcohol well. Palate is creamy and smooth. An easy drinking quality tripel

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
[bottle] Pours out beautiful, with a cleat golden color and generous white head. This beer is a fine Tripel with a boost of hops in both aroma and flavor. Extremely complex, slightly spicy. Hops are especially present in the long aftertaste. Finishes warm and bready. This is my favorite of the Chimay offerings.

Wasn’t crazy about this one. Orangish-amber color with a thin head. Too much bread mixed with sweet flavors for me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an opaque orange-amber colour with a rocky-twon inche thick head that leaves some lacing with a nice carbonatation. Aroma is of dry fuits, esthery. Taste is really sweet but not cloying, tastes spicy, yeasty, creamy with a subtly bitter ending.
A nice triple, but I prefer the grand reserve.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Deafening pop as the champagne-style cork went flying. Pours thick and lasting white head. Amber/orange in colours, it was cloudy if noto totally opaque due to the large amount of yeast floating around. A generous aroma of yeast was released during the pour. Other aromas noticed were of bread and dough, moist bark and a powerful hoppy smell. Honey and honeysuckle were also present. In the flavour, the expected overly hoppy bitterness is not present and I was pleasantly surprised by its well balanced sweetness. The dough and honey flavours were again present in the mouth. The palate was appropriately robust for a tripel. Carbonation was fine and pleasant. Enticing lacing was left, adding to the nice appearacne of the beer. The finish was of fresh almonds and hops. Pleasantly bitter aftertaste.
