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)

This is my favorite Chimay. It pours a great golden yellow color. Thin head and no lacing. The taste is light--no alcohol present. Some fruits and floral aspects as well. The finish is perfectly smooth and crisp. Just the right mix of bitterness and malty flavor. A little too expensive, however, for this level of beer."

bubbleflubber (2194) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Extremely huge head and light retention with sudsy webbed spiderlace to the glass. Aromas of multi-hops, with malt on the undertone. Very drinkable, as the flavors are crisp and consist of melons, honey, citrus, hops and malt. The mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing, with a lightly peppered astringency to the gums in the finish. For the Chimay brand, this feels lighter and more apt for a session brew than other offerings. A very good offering here, and one that Id have again.

Poured out of the bottle a nice hazy amber with a nice white head.The aroma was fruity and malty with hints of hops.The taste was mouthfilling of dried fruits and just enough hops to keep it from being to sweet.Another good Belgian beer for summertime sipping.

Bottle. Pours an amber color with a white head. Aromas are clove and spice. Smells similar to a german hefeweizen. Tastes are fruit, definite raisins. A slight bitterness at first touch to palate but finishes real smooth. A brillant Abbey Tripel.
