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: JAN 31, 2007 Pours golden or rather pale amber. Lots of fruit in the aroma as well as a hint of alcohol. Flavor is very complex with banana, and alcohol. Very estery. Finish is pleasant and lingering. The 2nd best offering from Chimay.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
It pours a cloudy copper color with an inch or two of straw colored foam. Light lacing. Light sweet malt in the aroma. Grain, caramel, and honey malt make for a somewhat sweet profile. Also some Belgian yeast flavors. Slightly spicy in the finish. Smooth, medium body, with gentle carbonation.

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

emacgee (4658) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2007
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.

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...
