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)

bottle. deep golden with one finger head. sweet and lightly fruity. nice yeast and spice. it’s good, but not deserving of the classic status that it’s achieved.

Aroma of malt, yeast, citrus. Rich but refreshing. More bitter than sweet. Pretty good.

W kolorze złota. Bardzo obfita piana, prawie biała, ładnie znaczy szkło jak opada. W aromacie świeżość, owoce, chmiel. W smaku cytrusy i goryczka, mogłaby być bardziej wyrazista. Wysycenie wysokie. Ciekawszy był dla mnie Chimay Bleue.

After tasting so many different triples it feels great to return to a true classic. Nice golden colour, lasting head, strong malty taste, hints of spices, typical yeasty notes, alcool shines through but not disturbingly. A classic.

Poured into official glass. Amber with a lot of yeast and a finger of frothy, white head. Smells fruity, almost like champagne and bready. Tastes like dark fruit, malt, and a finishing bitter, kind of sticky and floral. The palate is medium and velvet. Had it before, pretty tasty! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber, airy white head. Fruity, hoppy, malty aroma. Mothfeel is soft. Taste has a hint of wheat. Solid, but not overwhelming.

Aroma: wheat, fruity malts. Appearance: hazy pale gold, big white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: dry bitters coming up, low carbonation, some wheat notes again. Overall: decent Abbey Tripel. Bottle at The Champion, Bayswater.
