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)

MelvinKalksma (71) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 29, 2015
Aroma: Fruity, mild hops, yeast. Appearance: Turbid golden/amber beer with a huge white foamy head. Taste/Palate: Starts with fruit, hop and yeast. Slowly moves to a more sweet honey. Ends dry and bready. Overall: A really good tasting triple, but lacks the complexity of other triples.

Amazing. I was so upset I only purchased one. Sipped slowly and couldn’t fault it. If I could only drink one beer for the rest of my life this would be on the shortlist. Hundreds of other reviews will describe the other facets my advice is simply: Buy it, you will enjoy

Cerveza muy interesante. Lo primero que sorprende es la densa capa de espuma con una textura muy agradable. Olor suave y discreto. El gusto es excelente, con algunas notas afrutadas pero con un final seco y ligeramente amargante. Interesante método y tradición de elaboración.

last beer i had with cam in zly casy at the weekend. i think this was also 1 or 2 years old. pours hazy honey orange colour with a white head. aroma of raisins, trifle, coriander and spices. tastes of delicious malts, candy sugar, bubblegum. the aging seemed to have mellowed the hops and herb flavours, which i liked. finish was long and dry. fantastic, and i can only assume all the better for the time its been bottled up
