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)

750 mL bottle in a tulip glass. Pours an oversized forthy head, in which even the foam has an alcoholic taste, and a pleasant hop note to the smell. A golden hazy body. Once I get past the foam, I find a slight lactic tang among citrus notes and the mouthfeel of a Squirt soda. A delicate, balanced bitterness and the hint of orange peel at the end. It’s just great for relaxing to in the recliner.

Cloudy golden colour with frothy head. Crisp taste which fades to a creaminess. Nicely fizzy. Hints of vanilla. (K)

Beste van de drie Chimay’s. De blauwe komt na lang rijpen vaak beter tot zijn recht.

C’est une excellente trapiste. Pour une blonde qui vient de l’école belge, elle est bien équilibrée sans avoir ce goût de sucre, parfois un peu écoeurant qu’on rencontre dans certaines classique. Elle va bien avec un poulpe à la gallega, opinion personnelle, bien entendu.

This is how a good triple should taste like! Colour appearance smell palate, I can’t say enough about it. Excellent body with lingering aftertaste.

Robe blonde, légèrement opaque. Très fruitée, fruits jaunes dominants, noisette et amande en arrière goût. Longue en bouche. Encore une excellente trappiste

Bottle in a Samoens restaurant. Pours hazy amber with a good white head. Nice rich flavour of spice, banana, aniseed, hay and caramel. Tasty stuff.

Bernsteinfarben mit schönem weißen Schaum. Aroma: Hefe, Zitrus. Geschmack: bitter und sehr trocken, die Süße wird dadurch überdeckt.
