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)

Foxbush (1567) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 20, 2015
25 oz bottle The ale poured a light amber with a huge white head and lacing. This is a very smooth ale This was enjoyed at a bachelor party in NMB. The ale was dry yet having a spicy bite. It was surprisingly drinkable for me where Belgian ales normally are difficult to consume. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. The finish was modestly yeasty.

Cor laranja, turva e com algum brilho. Espuma branca dr altas formação e persistência com lacing razoavel. Aroma,perceptível logo ao abrir a garrafa, intenso de leveduras com um toque lupulado dando um suave aroma de folhas de limoeiro. Sabor seguindo o aroma, picante desde o início com final de picância mais acentuada, seco e levemente amargo; retrogosto picante e levemente adstringente. Corpo médio e alta carbonatação.

BenOver (202) - SLOVENIA - SEP 12, 2015
Pours amber/golden with a lot of jead, which stays for some time in an appropriatr glass. Aroma is of caramel, yeast and barley. Full, heavy aroma. Taste is full, well bodied and not complex. The body of the beer makes it unique and excellwnt with a sour aftertaste.

Grisza77 (243) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Złote, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która zdobi szkło i pozostaje do końca w postaci sporej warstewki na powierzchni. Aromat przyjemny, jasne owoce, gruszka, winogrona. W smaku także mocno owocowe, lekko szczypiące w język. Goryczka średnia. Ogólnie bardzo dobry tripel, wysoka półka, mocno owocowe, alkohol rewelacyjnie ukryty, pije się dość lekko..

Arancio, torbida, ampia schiuma pannosa biancastra. Intenso aroma dolce e con note speziate. Al palato malto dolce, continuano le spezie, leggerissimo amaro. Perfetta carbonazione. Alcol ben supporta la bevuta. Grande tripel

jsporrer (219) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2015
Pours a cloudy dirty yellow with a foamy white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of wheat and bread dough. Nice body, clings to the glass, almost syrupy. The taste is concentrated on the center of the tongue. Its not harsh, not sweet or bitter. It has a bread dough taste from the yeast which is not unpleasant. Fairly smooth with just a slight warmth and tingle from the alcohol. Didn’t love it or hate it but I did enjoy it. Somewhat similar to the taste of a German Hefeweizen with a little more body.
