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)

Golden-Brown color. Intense fruity aromas with some citric nuances from the hops. Subtle metallic hint. Medium bodied and carbonation, slightly sweet flavor but bitterness is dominant. Dry finish. Quite nice beer. Nose better than mouth. Filip

vinivini (714) - BELARUS - JUL 26, 2015
Deep golden, cloudy, beautiful creamy head, perfect lacing. Spicy aroma of Belgian yeast. Fruity. Grainy malts in the background. Fine. Medium body. No alcoholic feel. The flavour is malty, spicy. Smooth bitterness growing to the ending. Surprisingly refreshing for that ABV. Delicous. Not very complex but very elegant. Excellent.

Heerlijke triple. Staat op het zelfde niveau als mijn favoriet karmeliet. Lange afdronk. Heerlik fris citrusvruchten.

MelvinKalksma (98) - 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
