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)

In your face tripel. It shows its grace in the glass with a monstreous head and carbonation in excelsis. The aroma starts your sense: Does this beer onlyt present you with one (1) sensation? It does! But this flaovur and aroma is really neat! A flowery and really heavy lum thing is going on here. Not much to say and Im not impresed

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Poured a peach amber color with a light haze. The head was medium, white, and creamy. The aroma had the sour/earthy belgian smell, light citrus hints, and alcohol. Maybe some sweet malty aroma in there. The flavor was full and carbonated with a spicy mouthfeel. Definite alcohol hints with some ripe fruit and alcohol. The palate was cabonated and bubbly and the finish warm.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2007
Very Belgian - Very Ale. Great looking - nice hazy golden-amber with a pale full head. Carbonation sstings the tounge on first sip. Lots of subtle fruit notes - figs, maybe some pear and raisins. There also is a nice, noticable hop citrus essence present.. Pretty sweet and a medium malt body. Not the best belgian ale but pretty good.

BrewerDub (34) - USA - JAN 3, 2007
Fruity aroma, a little cloudy colored. Very sweet. A little bit lighter bodied. Hints of citrus and sweetness due to the malts. Its pretty good. Not a huge fan of the Belgians...

Fruity aroma with vanilla, caramel, toffee, and dried fruit. Yellow-brown with a super cloudy, off-white head. Sweet and chewy flavor with caramel malt, raisin fruits with a touch of coke-like flavor in the finish and a bit of oxidation. L:ighter body, slightly watery texture with a dry finish.

22 oz. Pours a golden, copper color with a huge head. Aroma is spicy and yeasty. Strong flavor hints of banana, spice with strong bitterness in finish and some alcohol presence, warming, slight astringency. Very good.
