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)

Complex light aroma of grass and yeast. Pours a rich honey gold, cloudy. A tight white enormous head that lasts and produces nice lacing. Big sour taste with hops, malt, lemon, almost yogurt notes. Round and complex with a looong finish. Really nice work by the brothers.

StueyD (1305) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
A golden coloured beer with a frothy white head. A strong bready aroma, yeasty definitely, with a background hint of fruity hop. Medium mouthfeel. A rich taste, loads of bready, yeasty and malty flavours, caramel and a tiny hint of butterscotch, dried fruit which brings forth a more sour fruitiness that lasts into the finish. Tasted at the Delirium Cafe, Brussels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 La cerveza de Triple de Chimay es la más reciente de la abadía y se etiqueta como "Cinq Cents" en la botella de 750 ml. De un color dorado, la cerveza trapense combina el sabor dulce y amargo en un equilibrio poco común. El aroma de la cerveza que se siente en la boca proviene de los perfumes de los lúpulos: por encima de todo, hay toques frutales de pasas de uva y uvas moscatel, incluso de manzanas maduras. Esta tradicional cerveza belga se saborea mejor cuando se encuentra fresca, a una temperatura de entre 6 y 8 °C. http://www.estucerveza.com/chimay-blanca- 2,19 http://www.elcervecero.es/product/87/0/0/1/1 2,25

Yamato (30) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 8, 2015
Pours beautiful golden color. Hint of smoke, leather. The palate is smooth, slick and perfect. Soft carbonation. The taste carries to every corner of mouth immediately after sips, and it remains there for a bit. It shines. Good feeling. Dry aftertaste. 8% it says, but it is not overwhelming. Be careful, don’t drink too much because it’s still 8%. 330ml is also perfect amount.
