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)

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Orange looking out of the bottle. good head with a citrus aroma. Taste sweet but a little too much for me. Finish is a little hoppy.A good Trappist but I would pick Blue or Red over this.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Pours with a norange gold body topped by a thick rocky white head with good retention and a good amount of lace. Flowery, orangey aroma with yeasty and spicy notes and a slight sourness. Slightly sweet yet sour and salt flavor with flowery notes and orange accents. The finish is short, bitter and flowery. Medium bodied, dry and smooth.

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAY 4, 2003
This beer pours an orange color with a very citrus filled aroma and a medium head. The taste is sweet and very strong of citrus. This was a great drink and it was very smooth. I would have this again if not for the high price.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - APR 27, 2003
Orange colour, cloudy appereance, huge, creamy head. yeasty aroma, with citrus hints. The flavour is yeasty, fruity (citrus, apple and orange peels) with a touch of sweetness (honey). The finish is hoppy. Good complexity, perfect balancement: another excellent trappist beer!

PushEject (42) - Palmdale, California, USA - APR 16, 2003
Yeasty almost homebrewed aroma. Light amber. Quite hoppy with a sweet, malty aftertaste. I'd choose the Grande Reserve or Red over this Chimay.

This is a very good beer. Poured a bloudy orange with a nice white head. Taste was very spritzy and fruity...very nice.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2003
Golden orange color, hazy, with big, long lasting head. Some citrus aroma, wheat, yeast, maybe some moldy cheese hangin' out in there. Some pepper aroma and flavor, a little malt and grape flavors as well. Incredibly smooth. Dry, just a little bitter aftertaste. Complex, all around enjoyable, great in bottles and on tap. Favorite of the Chimay line.

MAP (1133) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2003
Golden color, lots of white head that seems to just keeps coming. Sweet citrus aroma and the smell of yeast. Taste is very smooth and sweet. Small aftertaste of alcohol, but nothing too impressive.
