Bottle. Pours a fairly watery golden orange with a large, sticky, foamy head. Scents are fairly common for a tripel: yeast, alcohol, oranges, apricot, cinnamon, nutmeg. My first impression of this beer was it’s very dry. It has a distinct hop character but is fairly smooth and full of flavor.

It is golden in color with a long lasting head. You taste the fruityness of raisins and apples. This Chimay has a lot of hops. A good tripel.

11.2 oz bottle. The beer pours to a lightly hazy golden body with a huge lively creamy white head. The aroma is hay and yeast. Saazish hops with green raisins. The flavor is sweet green raisins, cream, lightly tart wheat and yeasts. The palate is creamy, rich, coating, pretty well textured. Nicely balanced brew.

11.2 oz. bottle poured foggy golden with much head. Spectacular fruity content and hits all pieces of the palate. Light and cheery; excellent option to a Hefe. Very nice Tripel.

Yeasty and spicy is a good way to describe this beer. The beer had highly carbonated taste and mouthfull. Other than that a good tripel.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2008 Bottle. TOP 3 ! for me. It only gets better.Like some have said, fruity and floral. One of the best beers that I’ve ever enjoyed. A great Summer brew. The fruity notes combined with the hops makes it very well balanced.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful golden pour with just the slightest haze, and a big rocky white head that settles the a thin white layer, a truly beautiful beer. Hop aromas of pine and spice with some floral notes, followed by a bit of yeasty bread. Smooth and luscious with a medium body. A little light toffee sweetness, but the flavor is certainly dominated by the hops, but it’s not overly bitter. Finish is dry and mildly astringent. Alcohol is noticeable, but not overwhelming, in the aroma and finish. I really liked this.

Pours gold with a thick white head. Aroma of apples, raisins, bananas and bread. Taste is a bit malty with alcohol surprisingly hidden. Slightly bitter aftertaste. A bit too carbonated.

Probably my favourite triple. I like the banana, vanilla and bread tones. This is what good Belgian beer is all about. It’s extremely far removed from the amateurish abbey ales that give Belgian beer a bad name these days. Chimay White is 8%, but you’d never guess that. Also, it’snot sweet at all, there’s just those lovely malty flavours.
