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 beers 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)

This is very creamy, soft and foamy. The taste is very pleasant, "normal", and aroma gets into your nose very nicely. Very easy to drink, so its not too strong. Probably the best beer Ive tasted, because Ive dreamed of creamy beer. This is not too sugary, like many strong beers are. Its just bread, cereal, nuts, toast, roast, coffee, hay... all but nothing too much. The fruitiness isnt too raisin-like, its more like spruce - fresh, but very mildly. The end is a bit bitter, but I guess you cant help it, and its still very mildly bitter. After drinking more, I think this is still a bit too much raisin-like (sweet), but if you drink it normally, and dont let it be in your mouth, its still fresh and easy to drink.

Bottle 33cl. Nice aroma, which betrays the spiciness of the beer. Nice golden colour with a lasting head. Taste is lovely complex. Bitterness, spiciness, alcohol, etc. Classic stuff!

Classic. Love this. Light and fruity beer with. Amber with heavy sediment and a head that stays. Hits the back if the throat with a spicy tone. Like a gentle punch in the head. Not one to start with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
