Aroma is of slight hops and belgian yeast.Pours a hazy gold with a good sized head.Good amount of yeast in the flavor.Medium mouthfeel with some sweetness and hops in the finish. iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2006
Amber colored and cloudy. The head was large with fine bubbles, before settling to a haze that covered the body. Bready, spicey tripel aroma; some hops. Dry & refreshing flavors; simple and nice. The mouthfeel was sharp with loads of carbonation. Nicely refreshing & simple straight-forward tripel. Pozzle52 (9) - Hypoluxo, Florida, USA - DEC 20, 2006 does not count
Poured golden with a hazy texture and a solid white head. There was a good amount of carbonation that provided an appealing effect with the cloudy pour. A sweet, citrus aroma initially hit my nose with hints of honey and spices. Initial tastes of vanilla and spices with a slight hoppy overtone. The citrus flavor remained in the mouth with a pleasant after taste. While others have commented on the evident taste of alcohol, I was surprised that it was seemly absent relative to its alcohol %. A very enjoyable beer. STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - DEC 20, 2006

This cloudy golden ale poured with a typical fluffy Chimay head. The combination of abundant hops and the outstanding Chimay yeast creates a pleasant fruity flavor with a slightly bitter finish. This is a good brew, but not as distinctive as the Blue label.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2007 Cloudy golden brown pour with copper highlights. Average white head. Aroma is alcohol, sugar, yeast and faint dried fruit. Slight sweetness followed by a touch of hops, but the alcohol warmth I enjoy in the red and the blue is lacking. If given a choice of the three, this would be my last. rayg1 (593) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Pours a nice golden with a huge white head. Aroma is of spice and raisins with a pleasant yeastiness. Drank at about 50F this beer was nice and pleasant all the yeast is still very present as is the raisin taste but the hops come out once you take a sip! This beer is really refreshing and just a joy to sip. Excellent beer. mkgrenwel (619) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Lightly sweet. A little grainy and sugary. Dry finish. Lemon, spice and alcohol. Some yeasty funk. A little overcarbonated and prickly, but not too bad. Pretty good standard tripel.

Out of the three basic Chimay’s, I happen to like this one the most... namely since it is a bit blander and subtle. Defintely headdy... a high white head and realatively quick disappation. Very fruity on the tongue and nose. Once again, the hints of some wood (less strong and mustier than the Blue). Some heavy yeast, slight bitterness, but is balanced with a pleasant sweetness. When poured (from bottle), it’s very effervescent. Some citurs and apple on the nose with a little grap eon the tongue. Nice orange color, a slight yellow golden tinge.

Quite alot going on here. head fluffy and bouyant fruity aroma that lingers. Warm deep amber color. Make sure that you have your slippers on since the % makes no attempt to disguse its presence but is not overpowering as Chimay should be. Oh to consume this at the source.
