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)

Een erg goede tripel. Mooie gouden kleur. Volle schuimkraag. Heerlijk bier en niet te sterk. Lekkere frisse smaak van cirtusvruchten en een geweldige afdronk. Doe mij er nog maar een bitte sehr.

josanguapo (193) - SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
From Hipercor San Juan de Aznalfarache. Playing KB Dark Side, in La Trappe chalice. Its a great beer but not my favourite chimay. Alcohol y a bit more noticiable here than desiderable.

yourilevesque (301) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2015
De couleur mi-blonde mi-ambrée. Beaucoup de fines bulles émanent du fond de mon verre vers la surface. Curieusement, que retrouve-t-on à la surface? Presque rien. La mousse s’est évaporée en un clin d’oeil. J’ai rarement vu des bières belges s’estomper (en surface) de la sorte. Le nez est plutôt beurré et épicé. Les levures font parfaitement leur travail; je perçois même de la banane et un joli côté sauvage qui ne me déplaît pas. En bouche, la signature belge est exemplaire: levurée à fond - avec ces levures belges que l’on connaît et dont on ne se lasse jamais vraiment, la bière est délicate et l’alcool y est discrète. Puissante mais douce, cette bière mérite d’être dégustée lentement.

Fatehunter (1642) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is floral, a little earthy and cereal. The taste has mild sweetness, a bite of bitter, good balance. The texture is airy and fizzy, wonderful. Really enjoyable.

Hazy orange w/ beautiful bounteous head that persists. Lacing. Aroma of bread-like yeast. Medicinal, herbal quality emanating from esters? Maybe some banana and honey. Sweet malt dissolving quickly into a peppery, sharp hop bite that lingers. World-class.

Enorm lekkere triple. Enorm toegankelijk en lekker zoet maar mist wel wat body en onderscheidende smaak.

SkillsFactory (148) - ITALY - MAY 31, 2015
Aperta il 31/05/2015, imbottigliata nel 2013, bottiglia da 33 cl. Dorata carica, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Nel l'invecchiamento ha perso le note di frutta fresca per acquistare, sia al naso che al palato delle belle note di uva passa e di vino bianco. Speziata dal lievito belga è caratterizzata anche da un lievissimo erbaceo, sul finale coda amara piacevole e un po' astringente. Corpo medio-pieno, poco carbonata. Tutto sommato è abbastanza semplice, ma davvero buona. Bella bevuta.

Turvo alaranjada como espuma densa, generoso e duradoura. Notas cítricas,pão e talvez coentro. Aromas cítricos de retrogosto com amargor intenso e para os 8% de álcool se mostra muito suave. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
