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)

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 4, 2007
Aroma: slightly sweet with touches of banana and the acid of green apples. Reminiscence of candy and of herbs from the hop. Appearance: Amber color. Beautiful head and persistent. Flavor: Malted, liquored, beginning with medium bitterness that progresses in a persistent dryness and acidity similar to the skin of orange or of the pink grapefruit. good presence of hop. Flavor as complex as the aroma. Palate: Low carbonation. medium-full body. Slightly frothy, hot sensation of alcohol, silky texture. (sorry for my english)

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Bottle 330 ml. Hazy carmel-colored, with an off white head. Aroma of yeast and doughy malt, some light grassiness/citricity from the hops as well. Sweet with a touch of bitterness. Flavor is pear, apple, some burnt notes, a little sourness and alcohol. Medium-thickness in the palate. Warms going down. Not as simple as some of the more widely-available belgian ales Ive had. Very good.

Carl99Fan (187) - Suwanee, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2007
Pours amber color with medium white head that hangs around for awhile. Nice aroma. Flavor something to be desired...dry....I feel like Im missing something with this brew. Initial taste great then BOOM....whered it go? I like my beers to linger a little while longer on the palate.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
33cL bottle. Pours a hazy, orangish-amber color; firm, textured white head with great retention and lacing; a gorgeous pour. Generous aroma, showing dried fruits, yeast, and belgian sugars. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: plenty of yeast and white pepper at the forefront, backed by a hard-candy maltiness; still maintains a dry character and slight bitterness. Long, candy sugar and yeasty finish.

jalichio999 (502) - BRAZIL - MAY 1, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2008 Colorao mbar turva, com um creme branco persistente e um pouco denso. Notas ctricas e frutadas. Final muito seco e amargo, ao meu ver em excesso, prejudicando o conjunto e a drinkability.

cyanescens (159) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Pours unfiltered golden with nice fluffy head. This beer has a lot of flavor, fruity banana notes, as well as yeasty, nutty flavors.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2007
33cL Bottle. Muted crackers and toast, with a squeeze of starfruit and bubbly spritzers. Faint bananas and a little yeast esters. Weakly warm. Pours a hazed deeply hued gold, with a big finger of fluffy light silk soap in buttermilk. Flavor develops a filling chewy malt sugar, with a dose of lemon pith, oak soap. A standard. Airy, glowing and fresh. Finishes with an indiscriminate hop touch.

The only thing this tripel might not go with is toothepaste. Tasted swell from bottle purchased at Total Wine in tax-free DE. Drank with friends at Mexican BYOB in Fishtown. Went swell with mole. Beautiful to look at and taste.

estoves (41) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2007
Aroma is of banana and yeasty. Pours a hazy amber body with a foamy with head that last long. A spiral formed pilar of bubbles is rising from the middle of my Chimay glass, very beatiful. Flavor is fruity with a strong taste of hops. Its a spicy taste of cloves. Bitter aftertaste from the hops. Palate is very carbonated, but it fits vell with this beer.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2007
Beautiful cloudy amber color with a generous thick cream colored foam. Aroma is nice and fruity, with hints of cloves, orange and yeast. Taste is slightly sweet, with hints of raisins and spices make it very nice. slightly bitter in the finish, and a little thick, but fills the belly with a nice warmth. Very good.
