4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Chimay Tripel is een mooi donkerblond bier. De verse gist is duidelijk waarneembaar. Fris aroma. Absoluut binnen mijn top 8!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 330ml. A clear amber beer with a huge frothy head and lot of gas. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, citrics, alcohol and green apples. Taste is bitter with a dry Belgian character. Medium bodied with some carbonation and astringency. Kind of hoppy afertaste with a yeast finish that is slightly alcoholic.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cl. Clear golden/amber with a creamy offwhite head. Aromas of citrus, fruity hops, cereal, Belgian yeast, alcohol. Medium bodied with moderate to fizzy carbonation. Dry and oily, with a deep hoppy bitterness and astringency, and a controlled sweetness for a tripel. Very pleasant farmhouse character and amazingly drinkable. Excellent, even slightly unorthodox tripel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Massive longlasting fluffy white head, nice lacing, sits on top of a hazy light gold coloured beer. The ice cream cone effect. Spicy yeast, candy sweet malt, fig, fruity aroma. Matching flavours but this bottle has a lasting metallic note that doesn’t seem like it should be in the beer. I’m guessing this bottle hasn’t been stored well. Med-high carbonation, medium mouthfeel, dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Very nice beer but docked points because of the metallic note (will have to re-rate).

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap, Beergeek Praha: nice medium foam, good cling to glass, dissipated in a few minutes. A bit bitter, as I recall I prefer the overall balance of Chimay Rood (red) a bit more. My research of Belgian beers needs further refinement.... and with any luck shall continue apace. A few more sips reveal a delicate flavor unfound in Czech beers: an apples to oranges comparison and thus close to meaningless. The big downside to experiencing more Belgian beers is my increasing reluctance to drink the local brews. Ach jo! (Když mluvite český, rozumite)

Draught at SBWF 2015.
Lasting white head. Clear solid golden color.
Nobel taste to give a very nice trippel with a fine carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy blonde with a decent white head. Nose is lemon tardiness with a little hops and bread. Flavor is a little acidic and strongly favors citrus. Good but not as good as some of its other abbey peers.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
So underestimated this, and it was pretty good. The aroma is very good. Lots of Belgian yeast’s fruity character and some spiciness, and malt. High carb, medium-light bodied. Very dry and drinkable, but some booze too.
