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)

willisread (529) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 18, 2015
330ml bottle from Masuyo’s. Poured into a snifter. Aromas of citrus, biscuit, clove, yeast and apricot. Bitter on the palate. Medium body with nice carbonation. Slightly dry on the palate. Fruit and yeast flavors become more pronounced as it warms up. Little bit of arugula and white pepper in there too. Nice long peppery bitter finish.

KW92 (236) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 16, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa złota, z niewielkimi drobinkami (prawdopodobnie drożdze). Piana mydlana, wysoka, jednak po paru chwilach opada do minimalnej warstewki
AROMAT: Owoce (brzoskwinia, winogrona), kwiatowość, ziołowość, przyprawowość, trawiastość oraz zbożowość.
SMAK: Są przyprawy, zioła i owoce, jest słodycz zbożowa i goryczka alkoholowa - średnia. Całość wytrawna. Średnio nasycone.
OGÓLNIE: Niezwykle bogaty i złożony aromat. Piwo klasyk, chętnie się do niego powraca.
