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)

2005 33cl bottle. Excellent tripel. Aroma of pepper, tabacco, phenol, clove and orange. The aroma draws almost directly into the flavor with more prenouced phenol, clove and pepper, with just a hint of orange and tobacco followed by a mellow bitterness. The sprite carbonation plays great with the aroma, flavor and dryness of the beer. An well crafted beer!

A nice sweet aroma, yeast. A hazy golden color with a frothy white head. A medium bitter taste. Medium body, creamy, soft carbonation with a bitter finish. Was a bit dissapointed by the previous ratings. For the price I will be buying something else-

Not a huge fan of Belgian beers many are too spicy and have that clove taste and I’m not a fan of that. Finally decided to try a Chimay white at $6 for a 11.2 oz bottle. Splitting it with my wife. This smells like a prosecco. Taste is sweet and fairly mild.

Good triple beer which leave good aromas on the palate. But I was disappointed by the smell at first.

3,3dl Flasche. Rotgolden. Viel Hopfen in der Nase und wenig Hefe. Rechts spritzig und gut bitter, fast keine Säure. Bitzeli süss, nicht von Malz. Rutscht fast zu gut für 8%. Bitterer Abgang.

belle couleur dorée; mousse blanche moyenne; arômes maltés; goût malté, houblonné et épicé; bon équilibre douceur-amertume; finale amère qui dure; la meilleure des Chimay

SinH4 (161) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Great gold-orange appearance with huge head. Floral hop aroma, paired with spices from the yeasts. Taste is dry, citrus fruity and hoppy. Bitter finish. Quite carbonated. A very good hoppy triple, too easily drinkable for its 8 ABV.

Wspaniały pełny złoty kolor, piana biała, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała i bardzo obfita. Piwo jednolicie zmętnione. Aromat delikatnych cytrusów, bananów, odrobiny drożdży. Gorycz, kwaśność, smak alkoholu, wszystko w perfekcyjnej harmonii. Wysycenie odpowiednie, nieinwazyjne. Na języku szerokie.
