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)

larsga (7225) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2006
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.
