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)

A classic delicious brew. Chimay is chimay. Lots of flavor, lots of aroma, and a very smooth easy drink. Worth the price tag is to be debated, but thats purely opinion. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

M_Sack (342) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Deep gold with a billowing white cloud head and heavy lacing. Subdued aromas of bread yeast, spicy hops, rum, raisins and muscat. Strong hop bitterness on the front palate leading into caramel malts, rum, raisins and muscat. Spicy hops abound in the finish and the alcohol is present without detracting. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel.

Cosa vuoi che ti dica la birra è più che buona ma sono ore che ordino le birrette fruttate il momento del giudizio non è sobrio.

Ambro206 (92) - ITALY - JUL 11, 2014
Birra bionda con schiuma abbondante ma poco persistente. Aromi di frutta secca e uvetta non lasciano spazio al tipico floreale dello stile. In bocca piuttosto bilanciato con note speziate ed agrumate. Finale lungo e leggermente alcolico. Nel complesso non una birra che entusiasma seppur una buon birra da meditazione

33cl bottle. A classic. Hints of apple and cinnamon. Alcohol strength doesn’t take away from the subtlety of the beer and the flavour. Nice bitter finish but surprisingly refreshing and sweet,
