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)

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours orange with a big, white head and lacing. The aroma is wheat, banana, and spice. The taste is wheat, banana, other fruit, and spice. It’s very carbonated. The subtle sweetness mixes well with the slight bitterness. There are slight boozy hints to it. This is a nice beer.

ALIBALI (690) - Kiel, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2016
Ein sehr schweres, trockenes und vollmundiges Tripel, was allerdings mit seinen Umdrehungen auch nicht hinter den Berg hält. Cognac, Kräuter, Erde und Brot. Der Nachhall exorbitant lang und voller alkoholischer Hopfenschärfe. Anders. Kleine Flasche vom Supermarkt in Belgien. Ca.1-1,5€.

Rhombic (111) - SPAIN - AUG 12, 2016
Pours pale golden with frothy off-white head. Some hay in the aroma, yeast, underlying fruitiness. Fully complex palate, with a bitter malt background, yeast and a toasted finish that fades out very gradually. Medium to full body. Nice.

Brysselistä 2010 joulukuussa ostettu pullo, BBE 2013. Pienehkö vaahto, jättää hieman pitsiä. Pullossa näkee paljon hiivapartikkeleita leijailemassa. Kullankeltainen, samea olut. Tuoksu varsin pehmeä ja vahvasti hedelmäinen sekä aavistuksen hiivainen. Myös maku maltaisen täyteläinen ja hedelmäinen sekä todella pehmeä; varsinkin jälkimmäinen lasillinen jossa kaikki hiivat kaadettu mukaan. Lienee pehmentynyt ikäännytyksellä ja katkeruus hävinnyt. Mainio edelleen. Tuoreena aavistuksen ärhäkämpi tapaus kaikin puolin (enemmän vaahtoa, enemmän katkeroa, ...), iän myötä pehmentynyt kaikin puolin. 3.10.2014: Tuoreempi versio kokeilussa. Todella kuohkea usean sentin vaahto, joka jättää kivasti pitsiä. Pehmeää se on tämäkin, ja raikkaan hedelmäistä. Mainio, ulkonäölle lisäpiste. 40->41

330ml bottle. Smell is mostly yeast and spices. Some malty notes and herbs, tracing flowers. Pours light brown with a nice white head that stays a while. Tastes is wheaty - clove and banana - a bit hoppy, some yeast and spicy notes. I did enjoy this one. Very tasty.
