Great tasting tripel. My fav among the Chimay ales is still the blue but this one is also a great beer on its own.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy pale amber with big fluffy white head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is nice bittersweet grass and lemon, dough, yeast and malts, spicy earthy-grassy hops. Taste is malty-yeasty, semisweet with noticeable citrusy bitterness, clovey spiciness and alcoholic zing. Kinda watery palate, but dry, grainy mouthfeel and medium body, thin prickly carbonation. Finishes fairly bitter. Not loving Tripels but it’s good to have something like this every once in a while.

Nyami. Belga söreim egyik kedvenc darabja (elsősorban akkor, amikor szűk kínálatból kell választani. Viszonylag könnyű hozzájutni itthon)

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
330ml bottle from the LCBO. Hazy golden/orange-tinted body with a white foamy head. Aromas or orange, grapefruit and orange zest. Reminiscent of an APA in terms of aroma, but with the yeast character making itself more present than in an APA. Some white bread and peach on the nose as well. Soft carbonation with a well integrated hop presence in comparison to the ever-lasting hop-based finish. This beer is very dry as well.
