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)

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Lots of carbonation and an aroma of fruit and yeast. Bitter, fruity flavor and a nice thick palate. Good beer with lots of flavor complexity but at $3 a beer its one that ill save for special occassions.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2006
On tap at Monks Cafe in Philly. Pours blonde with big bubbles that stick to the side of the glass, and a frothy white head. Aroma of yeast, clove, and some alcohol. Earthy flavor of wheat malt, clove, banana, pear. The alcohol blends in nicely to round out the flavors. Spicy and mildy sweet finish, some dryness. I really enjoyed this because it was it did not have the alcoholic bite that some tripels have, and there was some residual sweetness to tie everything together.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2006
pretty good triple, high carb level, small white head that disipated quickly, aromas of malt and spice, good flavor, a little thin with a spice aftertaste, good triple, but ill talk a dubbel instead any day of the week.

Seems that my Chimay reviews have dissappeared for the second time! I dont know whats going on in the database. Regardless, I like the white least of the available Chimay Ales. Good body and great tangy sour wheat flavor. A bit of alcohol in the flavor.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 23, 2006
Bottle at home. This is an excellent beer. It has a huge head, not too much alcohol. Its heavy but very fruity. A very balanced and excellent experience.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle 330 ml at Belgobaren Sthlm. Fruity, floral tripel. Lots of yeast. I think however that this particular bottle was off, had definite mold notes which I havent noted when I wasnt rating..

Aromas of yeast, apple, grass and light floral hops. Big frothy white head over a amber-brown body... nice lacing. Caramel malt presence with a fruity undercurrent and a hoppy/yeasty finish. Very well balanced.

On tap at the Birerria, Washington, D.C. Poured golden with a fine, white head. Nose is yeast, hops, and citrus. Flavor is fruity, yeasty, and hoppy in the finish. A great beer!

Mutualaid (142) - Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2006
Pours amber with very thick, off-white head. Fruity aroma with good hop bouquet. Takes a few sips to really clear the palate for this beer. Strong, up front hop flavor with definite alcohol and subtle malt notes. Good body. Goes down smooth with a clean finish. Wasnt sure what to think at first but this beer has grown on me in just a few tastes.
