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)

Golden colour, Much light scent on trappiste side. Well balanced and fresh taste taste but you can feel the acholhe at last. Beautifull beer with beautifull taste.

Good belgian, apricot color. More ember then i expected. Lightly smells of yeast. Long alcohol finish, may have been a little too carbinated. Tastes of delicate hops and hints of orange, tingles the tounge.

On Draft in Paris. Honey colour in the glass with a medium sized head. Flavours of wheat, honey and noticiable alcohol. Long alcoholic finish. Very enjoyable.

Orange-honey colored cloudy pour. Large lumpy white head. Fairly high carbonation. Aromas are orange, yeast, mild spices, white wine. Taste follows suit. Very sweet, almost like a yeasty, spicy, citrus syrup, but balanced out fairly well with mild hops. Very good beer. Pairs well with spicy foods. Refreshing. I go back and forth between this and the Blue for my favorite Chimay.

Oranangey, golden colour with a thick white head. Aromas of citrus fruits, hops and nutmeg. Taste is similar with tart apple pie, bitter hops with a well balanced dry finish. Not as good as complex in flavour as chimay blu but a good beer

pours with an enormous white head, took a while to get to something manageable to drink. lots of aroma of orange which transfers to the taste in the mouth too with some delicate hop tastes too, very pleasant, kind of tingles on the tongue. complex finish, some breadiness, yeasty too

Huge rocky white head, lasting with perfect laces. Misty and spritzy orange body. Sweet citrus, yellow apples and hayish hops in the aroma. Clean and fresh taste; dry malts, mild and noble bittering hops, weak but pleasant fruitiness. Medium -bodied. Crisp and dry mouthfeel. This beer was one of my first Belgians ever tasted. Ooh, it’s so nice... reliable, and very enjoyable.

Had on tap-heaven...was poured in an actual Chimay chalice glass with a great head. Dark rich warm blush-rust color, held the head for a nice period...slight fruit, spice aroma. Starts smooth and melts on tougne, small hops bite, great finish but does not coat mouth with aftertaste...leaves you ready for next drink. Thank God for monks.

Bottle. Drinked it at Oveja Negra pub. Golden colour, nice white head. A little bit fizzy at the beginning. Aroma is sweet, apricot anda candy... Taste is caramel but citrus as well. Spicy. It has the charactreristical flavour of belgian yeast very well combinated with the flavour of hops. Bitterness is excellent. Finish is great too, dry and alcohol in the aftertaste. I agree with some comments here, carbonatation is a little bit high. But in sum... is a lovely beer!!!
