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)

The sweet spicy aromas accompany the thick head and cloudy ale. Another of the superb brews fom the Trappistes. I sampled the small genade shaped 330ml bottle.

Hazy orange w/ beautiful bounteous head that persists. Lacing. Aroma of bread-like yeast. Medicinal, herbal quality emanating from esters? Maybe some banana and honey. Sweet malt dissolving quickly into a peppery, sharp hop bite that lingers. World-class.

Enorm lekkere triple. Enorm toegankelijk en lekker zoet maar mist wel wat body en onderscheidende smaak.

SkillsFactory (106) - ITALY - MAY 31, 2015
Aperta il 31/05/2015, imbottigliata nel 2013, bottiglia da 33 cl. Dorata carica, velata dai lieviti in sospensione, schiuma bianca di buona persistenza. Nel l'invecchiamento ha perso le note di frutta fresca per acquistare, sia al naso che al palato delle belle note di uva passa e di vino bianco. Speziata dal lievito belga è caratterizzata anche da un lievissimo erbaceo, sul finale coda amara piacevole e un po' astringente. Corpo medio-pieno, poco carbonata. Tutto sommato è abbastanza semplice, ma davvero buona. Bella bevuta.

Turvo alaranjada como espuma densa, generoso e duradoura. Notas cítricas,pão e talvez coentro. Aromas cítricos de retrogosto com amargor intenso e para os 8% de álcool se mostra muito suave. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ogniskowicz (367) - POLAND - MAY 28, 2015
Aromat: lekko fenolowe, z muśnięciem ziołowości chmielu i alkoholem Wygląd: ogromna piana, szybko dziurkująca, mętne złoto. Smak: owocowo-ziołowa baza, z fajną lekko cytrusową goryczką. Alkohol nieźle ukryty. Bardzo solidny Tripel - ciężko się do czegoś przyczepić.

Draft. Cloudy, amber, generous head. Somewhat complex flavors, but hard to describe. Kind of boring finish.

Easier to drink than the red and blue. Unfortunatly I can find only the 75ml bottle which is a little too much for me at once. I tried what was remaining the day after, and even if aroma and taste were still not bad, the beer had almost lost all the fizziness as expected.
