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)

lesifflebiere (1212) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Dorée foncée, plutôt cuivrée en fait, avec une épaisse mousse blanche ; semble mi-épaisse. Fruitée en nez, avec un petit côté champagne assez charmant. Bouche sèche, presque poivrée et piquante, après des abricots et des pêches. Au final, elle est un peu trop effervescente, et on l’aime un peu plus ronde et complexe, mais elle reste savoureuse, parfaitement dans le style, une référence ultime de ce style.

Bottle 33cl. Nice aroma, which betrays the spiciness of the beer. Nice golden colour with a lasting head. Taste is lovely complex. Bitterness, spiciness, alcohol, etc. Classic stuff!

Classic. Love this. Light and fruity beer with. Amber with heavy sediment and a head that stays. Hits the back if the throat with a spicy tone. Like a gentle punch in the head. Not one to start with. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Litt uklar gyllen med et hvit skum, skummet hang fint i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, frukt, karamell, krydder og gjær. Smaken følger opp her også, lang søt ettersmak.
