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)

Magnum bottle, year 2000. Malted, alcoholic and a very long end. A very nice foam, stable and long. Bitter taste. Cloudy.

appiantiqua (41) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 24, 2016
Goûtée dans un verre Charles Quint. Belle robe orangée surmontée d’une mousse blanche abondante et tenace, carbonatation intense. Le nez est fruité et houblonné avec des touches de levure et de citron. Le goût est sur la banane, les fruits jaunes et secs(dattes) avec une parfaite balance douceur/amertume. L’arrière bouche idéale nous ramène les houblons sur une bonne longueur. Une très grande triple trappiste. 17.5/20

Kittenbieer (32) - LYON, FRANCE - SEP 24, 2016
Belle robe blonde cuivrée avec une mousse blanche persistante. Le nez dégage des arômes de céréales et alcool.La bouche révèle des notes fruitées, houblonnées bien équilibrées avec une légère amertume. Très bonne bière Tripel qui nous laisse sur une douce amertume bien agréable !

likeatrainwreck (466) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2016
Lively cloudy orange pour with a massive white head. Nice balance of yeasty, bread esters... Citrus... Lively carbonation. Slight astringency stops it being as good as some tripels, but a very good beer all the same.

Bière dorée, avec une belle mousse blanche qui tient. Pas aussi bonne que la Chimay Bleu, bière forte mais rien d’exceptionnel.

Luneylane (36) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 14, 2016
A bottle from Jason’s drunk at home during the typhoon! Aroma: unmistakably hoppy. Appearance: hazy, light amber, minimal head. Palate: full-bodied, but certainly not thick in texture. Soft carbonation, a long, bitter and astringent finish. Overwhelmingly bitter thanks to the hops. Refreshing, and an excellent beverage, but I prefer something more complex in terms of flavour.

samires (98) - POLAND - SEP 13, 2016
Amber clear with big, white head. In aroma it’s spicy and caramel with peach/apricot fruitiness, and floral notes. In taste it hits with upfront caramel, which slides into apricot and peachy, apricot and spicy notes with accompaniment of herbal and floral hoppiness which last into finish that ends up with mild bitterness. Medium carbonations and slick, creamy body. Slight alcochol
