A very present regular fine head. Very sticky to the glass. Aroma dominated by hop bitterness. Also the taste is dominated by hop bitterness, but not as much as I had expected. The bottle was about 3 years old.
Meduim body and medium carbonation. Nice lasting aftertaste. ScoWRee (422) - Perkiomen, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma fruity and yeasty. Tastes of hops and fruit with nice carbination. Slighy bitter finish. Commercial description is acurate. despenla (1) - dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 27, 2007 does not count
Excellent balance in fruitiness, esters, alcohol. Just simply one of the very best. My goal for homebrewing. DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2007
UPDATED: APR 15, 2007 A pretty, light golden color with a huge head. Flowery aroma with some citrus. The taste is creamy and smooth, just like the red though with a stronger flavor. Fruity, malty, carbonation with a sweet aftertaste. Great stuff. robinvboyer (4667) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2007 great nose of citrus, ripe fruit, and some nice hops. Flavour is crisp, and hoppy. good bitterness, great tripel

This is a good beer, but it’s not my favorite Chimay. It’s got a nice yeastiness and a bit of floralness that makes it a good beer to drink, I think, by itself. jainsv (113) - USA - JAN 19, 2007
Pours a cloudy tan color with a lacy white head. Smells of hops, with a litlte bit of spice. Tastes a lot like a strong ale, with a slightly spicey flavor and a lot of hops. Not too bad, doens’t taste much like a tripel though, more like a strong ale. very good nonetheless. BeerBaronLS (85) - Grove City, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2007
My least favorite of the Chimays, but still very good. The alcohol is least hidden in this one, but it has a nice crisp taste. First had it in Brussels, but had it a few times here in OH. Nice subtle fruitiness, bitter, and a carbonated mouth feel. jblendy (519) - Hawthorne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2007
Pours hazy deep straw colored woth a dense, foamy, off-white head. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas, with some candy sugar, and slight mustiness. Flavor is unexpectedly bitter, but with a nice soft fruitiness. Slight musty yeast, and mild candy sugar in the background. Palate is light/medium, carbonated, mildly bitter, and some very slight fruity notes. RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 17, 2007
Cloudy, dark amber. Fluffy, white head. Nose of warm dusty malt. Some floral hops. Biter flavour, floral. Latex gloves. Slightly fizzy mouth. Palate is warm with some bitterness and coating. Sweetness and slightly citrus. Good standard beer.
