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)

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2018 Bottle, 330 ml. Possibly this is the one of Chimays i can easily accept without feeling the lack of balance. My biggest problem with Chimays is the sensable alcohol after swallowing (mostly it comes back into the nose). In this Tripel i don't feel it at all. Normal copper colour, great off white head. The nose is banana and vanilla, great amount of malt inside. The palate is barely balanced, i mean i can feel the strenght in it, but it's not alcoholic at all. Sweetish, decent Belgian with great IBU. As it gets warmer the alcohol starts to come out on the very end. As a Tripel fan I'll never be a true fan of Chimay tripel (and Chimay at all). Decent Tripel under 3€, but it's far not the best i've drunk these weeks...

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2018 Big head. Wonderfully yeasty, with malt and hint of spiced notes. I believe I prefer the Red version.

yerffoeg (208) - Dinant, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2018 Achetée par erreur, pensant prendre une Chimay dorée, on ne rigole pas. Une bière blonde foncée, avec un beau col de mousse. Ses arômes me semblent tirer vers le grain, se développant au fur et à mesure qu'elle se réchauffe. Niveau saveurs, elle dégage plutôt des notes de grains et de céréales.

matbigrey (125) - Mascouche, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2018 330ml bottle. 24 carat gold color with a nice clean white head. Aromas of fresh lemon, corriander and yellow fruits. Taste is quite grainy which I like from tripels, sweet, hoppy, spicy. Very good beer!

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2018 Las chimay siempre son un acierto, más aún , una triple que hace que tenga mucho más aroma, sabor y cuerpo

[email protected] (18) - - JUN 9, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2018 Uma cerveja trapista um pouco mais clara, com uma belíssima cor âmbar-clara alaranjado. Sua espuma é densa, cremosa, branca e persistente. No nariz notas levemente frutadas que remetem a banana, abacaxi, maça e uva. Seguem os aromas do malte com um discreto floral do lúpulo e amargor moderado.
