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)

Chimay Tripel is een mooi donkerblond bier. De verse gist is duidelijk waarneembaar. Fris aroma. Absoluut binnen mijn top 8!

Fuerte sabor, aroma agradable pero ligero. Paladar duradero, herbal. Poca astringencia, poco carbonatada. Espuma nula.

33 cl bottle served in tulip. A classic classic. Pours blurry, hazy yellow. Earthy aroma of yeast, fruits and spices. Balanced taste in the same direction with a discrete bitterness. Another piece of evidence for the fact that good beer is not necessarily brewed by pretentious hipster douchebags. <3

Nærmest lidt rødgylden med tæt hvidt skum. Krydret, cremet og kraftig. Meget bitterhed i eftersmagen.

PabloZab (1030) - Wroclaw, POLAND - JUN 5, 2016
Butelka 330ml (12.2019). Piwo klarowne o ciemno złotej barwie. Biała, kremowa piana jest bardzo obfita, trwała i dokładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat drożdżowy z nutami owocowymi, pieprzowymi. W smaku owocowe z nutami przyprawowymi, lekko pieprzowymi i zaznaczoną, przyprawowo-fenolową goryczką, na umiarkowanym poziomie i wytrawnym finiszu. Piwo jest dość wysoko wysycone, leciutko musujące, średnio treściwe i dość lekkie w odczuciu choć wyraźnie rozgrzewające ale alkohol jest dobrze ukryty.

PowY (99) - - JUN 4, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours dark golden with a large frothy white head. The aroma is rather faint, yeasty and some fruity notes (stone fruits). Medium to full body with quiet lively carbonation. and an alcoholic finish. The taste is pretty sweet and heavily malty (caramel) with some bitterness and fruity aromas coming in course of the tasting - dried fruits and stone fruits, honey. Very nice one.

Chimay Blanche is perhaps the most classic of the set, but it surely is not the worst. Once again, you’ll find that specific, somewhat bitter but very enjoyable taste, but with a most traditional approach than the other ones. No fruits like the red one, not as charged as the blue one, this one is lighter to me, and surely is a great beer for any occasion. APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

Usually I don’t like Blanche, too safe, like Wieckse Witte (Heineken). I like this one. Taste? I would say "hay/cereal" Well they say that it’s real Trappist from Baileux. They also like it in France. France North of course. Below the La Canche river they are beern00bs just like me. ;) --- irgendwie "unspeziell". Konfuzzi from Freiburg wrote that. I think he’s right, but yet I liked it better than most whites coming from the former BENELUX.

Trüb, goldfarben. Angenehm bitter. Schmeckt gut, aber irgendwie "unspeziell".

Boxereddy (442) - BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2016
Koperkleurig oranje bier met een dikke witte schuimkraag. Aroma: fruitig (boom fruit zoals appels en abrikozen en druiven), gist en brood, kruiden en alcohol. Smaak volgt het profiel van de neus: licht fruit, zoete mout, citrus. Gemiddeld mondgevoel met mooi koolzuur en zachte afdronk.
