Bottle. Pours an amber color with a white head. Aromas are clove and spice. Smells similar to a german hefeweizen. Tastes are fruit, definite raisins. A slight bitterness at first touch to palate but finishes real smooth. A brillant Abbey Tripel.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
