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)

labeerinthum (305) - Milano, ITALY - DEC 20, 2015
On tap @ Expo 2015, Milano. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è discreta. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine fini con carbonazione media diventa presto una velatura ma si fa ricordare come pizzo sul vetro. Il colore è giallo dorato. Il corpo è strutturato ma duttile. L’amaro è deciso con aggiunta di un po’ di umami. L’intensità gustativa è elevata e la persistenza gustativa è buona. Il gusto è godereccio. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono luppolate. Il finale è amarognolo e complesso. Il retrogusto è intenso.

mariuspoenari (413) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 19, 2015
Pours hazy orange, with a white head. Smells citrusy, of bread and of Belgian yeast. The taste is bitter and refreshing, with high carbonation and a bitter-sweet aftertaste.

szymonskc (253) - Skórcz, POLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Aromat intensywny, głównie owoce, cytrusy, w tle przyprawy. Kolor miodowy, mętne. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa, obfita, szybko opada do otoczki przy krawędzi. W smaku owocowa słodycz, przyprawy i lekka nuta chmielowa. Wyraźna, dosyć wysoka, alkoholowa goryczka, piwo lekko grzeje w przełyk. Wysycenie wysokie. Bardzo dobre.

Gurthnar (4074) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 17, 2015
Bottle from Drinkshop. One of the smoother and easier drinking tripels. The spiciness of the yeast and the alcohol coming from the sugar use are not over the top - rather at a moderate intensity, which leaves the beer balanced. But it is a tripel sure enough. Also some honeyish notes, I get a bit of hemp, herbal hoppiness. A good one definitely.

Bottle - yeasty orange aroma. Sparkling golden amber with thick foamy white head. Hit of alcohol straight away - rest over powered. Triple still not by drink.
