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)

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.

Delightful beer. Golden with a haziness that imparts some wonder. It produces a quality head of white foam that never ever really disappeared. Now, perhaps I drank a little quick... A syrup-ie sweetness wraps the tongue and then curls back on top to produce a bitter finish. Great mouth feel. Good carbonation. Overall quality.

tykjen (182) - Flor, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2007
Completely nice! A world classic that combines tartness and sweetness in a perfect way. Warming alcohol and a huge head. Good belgian character, but it is not in any way overdone.

Aroma of flowers, green apple and perfume. Pale and hazy, with a thick white head. Taste of smooth champagne... aaah.. Nice bitterness in the finish. A long time favourite of mine.

With over 1000 rating of this, I dont think I can add much more. Great looking, smelling and best of all the texture is great. Finish is on of my favorites.
