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 beers 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)

Pretty good. Not my favorite as it seemed to be lacking a little flavor. Still tasty.

Bottle 33 cl. Pours hazy orange with a big white persistent head. Aroma is bread, grain and citrus hoppy. Taste is hoppy and grapefruit, bitterness lasts long in the aftertaste. Medium body with high carbonation.

Bursztynowe, zmętnione z obfitą, ale dziurawą i szybko opadającą pianą. W aromacie lekkie cytrusy, trochę banana, estrw, brzoskwini, są też przyprawy. Wytrawne, owocowe, z niską goryczką. Wysokie wysycenie, poprawne ciało. Ok, ale są dużo lepsze triple

Very soft, complex tripel. Taste, unlike so many tripels, strong: hoppy with dark fruits, aftertaste mildly bitter. Quality.
