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)

This beer was poured into a snifter and had a decent head to it. There was an alright smell to it with te smell of mainly yeast and malt. the taste was of honey and butterscotch and yeast. This was an ok tripel but not one of my favorites.

Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a rocky white head that clings to the side of the glass. Smells yeasty with a touch of clove and fresh hops. The taste is of raisin, fruity hops, and maybe a little clove. The carbonation is perfectly effervescent. This stuff rocks.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip glass, cloudy orange with a medium white head. the aroma was of butterscotch, yeast and spice. The taste was buttery and dry with notes of pepper, citrus and honey. There was a definite bitter finish. A decent tripel, but I prefer a bit more sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2007 This is my 3rd Chimay and I realized how can you go wrong with a Chimay. The Chimay would be on my list, I think it is right up there with the red and the blue, this one was more of a pineapple look and taste to it, very fruitty flavor. I dont think I would care which Chimay I had. Just checking my ratings of the Chimay and the red received the lowest of the 3, not true that had atmosphere that the other 2 did not

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 20, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed golden with a large tan head. Aroma is lightly soapy and soft, spicy hops, caramel and yeast come through lightly too. Easy, balanced body... enjoyable enough. Flavours of citrus, yeast, caramel, coriander, almost wheaty. Medium long, citric sweet finish. Good enough.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 REQUIRES RERATE!!! Bottle poured into a tulip glass. The aroma was not that strong spice, nut, malt and alcohol but pleasant overall. The body is on the lighter side with notes of malt, candy, nuts, light cocoa, brown sugar, booze and spice.

mike_77 (5826) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Amber, orange colour. Musty, yeasty aroma. Quite dry and oaky tasting. Some fruit in there but lacks a little acidic freshness. Texture is nice with the beer almost vapourising in the mouth leaving a dry finish.

Very nice Belgian. Poured from the bottle very brown with little head. Nice caramel taste and felt great on the tongue. Alcohol not overwhelming. Pleasing brew.
