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)

Bottle 0.33 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Bursztynowe, mętnawe piwo o obfitej i trwałej pianie oraz przyjemnym, lekko owocowym aromacie. W smaku gęste i ciężkie, wytrawne z chmielową, rozgrzewającą i drapiącą gardło goryczką na finiszu.

Jannick13 (114) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Bottle. Pours slightly hazy blonde with small head. Aroma of yellow fruits and herbs. Tastes like more of the same, but with a medium bitter finish. Really good.

Keogh (88) - Świebodzice, POLAND - FEB 18, 2015
Piana obfita, szybko opada. Barwa bursztynowa. Aromat niezbyt intensywny, czuć brzoskwinia, drożdże, słodowość, troszkę przypraw. Smak bardzo zbalansowany, mamy słodki, kwaśny i goryczkę - dosyć wyraźna. Wysycenie wysokie, szczypie w język, alkohol całkiem nieźle schowany, złożone zbalansowane piwo.

DraftDodger (297) - - FEB 15, 2015
Copenhagen 4/1 2015. 33 cl bottle from Netto. Very foamy when you open it. Pours hazy gold with solid white head. Aroma of alcohol, malts and yeast. Medium low carbonation. Taste is dominated by the high alcohol content. Taste is sweetish supplemented by strong notes of alcohol. Slight bitterness in aftertaste. I have tasted better Belgians.

Prima zwaar bier. Vrij fris. Helder. Redelijk bitter ook voor een tripel en niet erg zoet.

dreamer (133) - PORTUGAL - FEB 9, 2015
Color is golden to amber, very cloudy. Head is generous and persistent till the end. Medium carbonation. Full and creamy body. Aroma is floral, yeast and dark fruits. Taste is caramel, dried plums, cloves (and other spices), bread and some bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet and very long. Up to now the best Chimay I’ve tasted.
