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)

Very pleasant brew to drink. Lots of flavour and aroma. Alcohol is well hidden. A little bit of too much of a dry aftertaste for me however.

One of the better whites. While you can buy Chimay Red, White, or Blue about anywhere in the U.S., I still remember drinking it on tap in some pretty lame bars in San Francisco.

Golden coloured, mostrly lasting head (medium bubbles), leaves a long finishing flavour on the mouth. Its aroma and flavour combine perfectly and is its highest point. Sweet, but not too much. Alcoohol at the very right mesure.

Way too hoppy. Now that I’ve had all three, I can say without a doubt that the red is the best.

On tap @ Falling Rock poured a clear gold with a large lasting white head. Aromas of fruitiness, spice and a hint of honey. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of bread, light fruitiness, light honey and a hint of spice with a smooth dry finish.

33cl bottle. Pours a hazy peach colored body with a pillowy giant white head that quickly fades away. Spotty lacing. On the nose I get raisins, white grapes, tangerines, banana and bread dough. The flavor is intense: grapes, figs, raisins, citrus, yeast and floral hops. Medium bodied, somewhat sticky on the palate. Finish is spicy, bitter and medium in length. A disappointment overall as I quited liked the Rouge.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Just wonderful! One of the beers I would need to have a barren island. Chimay White pours a beautiful head, with a nice cloudy burnt golden color. The beer has a complex aroma and with subtle hints of banana. A leaner Belgian triple, if one could be called such a thing. Nice balance of bitterness and wonderful use of yeast, As a matter of fact, it really demonstrates why yeast is such a important ingredient in brewing. Cheers to the monks!!!

11.2 oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Aroma is of sweetness, bread, and fruit. Head is ample and creamy. Color is slightly cloudy gold. Mouthfeel is excellent, typical of great Belgian ales. Easy to drink with no indication of 8% abv. Some fruit flavor (especially raisin) present throughout taste. Also a little tartness. Leaves a good, however brief, aftertaste.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw/golden with a beautiful creamy head. Aroma is some floral hops with yeast, apricot, and some pepper. Flavor is peppery yeast, some raisin, apricot, and banana, as well as some bready malt. An excellent tripel, one of my favorites.
