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)

Pours gold/orange with yeast bits and a large, fluffy, white head. Lots of dense lacing. Aromas of bread, fruit, yeast, coriander and banana. Flavor matches aromas with some spice and more bitterness than I expected. Finishes dryer than most triples, slightly sour, nice. Mouthfeel is thin for a triple, but still substantial. Carbonation seems just right. Overall a very nice Triple.

tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2006
Orange ufiltreret øl købt i Tyskland. Samger bittert og let sur - og smagen af alcohol er tydelig. Havde forventet en tung og let sødlig øl, som de fleste belgiske øl. Kødelig øl af denne type

Pours a hazy light amber into a Chimay glass. Thick microbubble head. Citrus, bread, dough and yeast aromas. Full and creamy with up front dried fruit (but not strong) and a dry, bitter, lasting finish.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2009 Pours a deep orange color, fluffy, creamy white head. Very effervescent. Some dry, Belgian yeast, and a soft hoppiness. Hints of citrus. A classic I haven’t had in a long time.

Ibrew2or3 (8099) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2006
On Draft - Tampa Bay Brewing Company. Poured out yellow in color into a goblet with tall bright white foam head. Malt, spice and yeast aroma. Soothing Malt, spice and yeast flavor balanced somewhat by the citrus hops then slight bitter/sour finish. Carbonation was low for a Belgium beer which created the soothing mellow mix of flavors. Very tasty and refreshing. Didn’t sense any alcohol.

Bottle - Bought it for a special treat for stop day. First go at an authentic Trappist. First impressions a sweet almost fruity taste. Final impresions, wow that was well worth the money, and when I get a job will be put into the rotation.

11.2 oz bottle - Pours a hazy, light amber with a moderate head that soon fades to thin. It has a citrus and yeast aroma. The flavor mixes the sweetness and sour citrus of a Belgian very well. It’s bubbly, medium bodied and smooth. The 8% ABV is well masked and the finish is crisp. A bit more intensity and complexity would have suited me, but this is certainly a high quality ale.
