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)

Pours a hazy golden with a big, white head that leaves great lacing. A lot of sediment is noticeable on the bottom of the glass. Strong yeast is present on the nose, giving off aromas of bubblegum, banana, and various spices. Taste is subdued compared to the nose. Medium bodied beer with a short, bready finish. I’ve had better Tripels before.

Pours a cloudy copper towards the end of the bottle, huge white head. Very fruity, yeasty and malty bouquet. Orange zest, spices, herbs, a hint of banana chips. The palate is medium+ bodied with a hint of boosy heat, low bitterness, slight sweetness and a pretty long finish. Very good tripel, in my oppinion this is comparatively higher quality than the blue Chimay acctually. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ottima triple trappista della ormai troppo commerciale chimay che per fortuna non fa perdere il proprio buon gusto alle proprie birre. Classica ma di una perfezione di sapori e profumi. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

Cloudy golden colour with frothy head. Crisp taste which fades to a creaminess. Nicely fizzy. Hints of vanilla. (K)

Beste van de drie Chimay’s. De blauwe komt na lang rijpen vaak beter tot zijn recht.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2015 C?est une excellente trappiste. Pour une blonde qui vient de l?école belge, elle est bien équilibrée sans avoir ce goût de sucre, parfois un peu écoeurant qu?on rencontre dans certaines classiques. Elle va bien avec un poulpe à la gallega, opinion personnelle, bien entendu.

This is how a good triple should taste like! Colour appearance smell palate, I can’t say enough about it. Excellent body with lingering aftertaste.

Robe blonde, légèrement opaque. Très fruitée, fruits jaunes dominants, noisette et amande en arrière goût. Longue en bouche. Encore une excellente trappiste

Bottle in a Samoens restaurant. Pours hazy amber with a good white head. Nice rich flavour of spice, banana, aniseed, hay and caramel. Tasty stuff.
