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 beer’s 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)

Excellent Tripel, rich in flavor but well-balanced. One of the better of its kind.

Lightly hazy deep golden colour. Spritzy pour with a large head that dissipates fast. Aroma medium high citrus, orange skin, bubblegum, tropical/stone fruit. Perfumy alcohol. Taste citrus and bubblegum and tropical fruit. Crusty bread. Spritziness makes it easy drinking with a medium full body. Noticeable clean alcohol. Complex yet easy drinking beer. Very well made.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2017
Biere blonde, avec peu d'effervescence et bonne carbonatation. Au nez, c'est assez floral, avec un peu de sucre et une présence de levures belges assez minime surprennement. En bouche, levure assez présente qui impose beaucoup du profil de saveurs. C'est assez clean comme profil et c'est exactement dans le profil d'une triple classique. La bière est tout de même un peu plus amère que l'idée que je me fait d'une triple, sans que ça soit désagréable. Se boit somme toute très bien, beau produit, sans plus.

Bottle (8%) served in trappist glas. Pours golden with large creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, apricot and malty in a nice blend. Well balanced taste. Mildly sweet aswell with fairly bitternes. Pleasant somewhat sweet tail with a sting of alcohol. Easy to drink and very enjoyable.

pgliszczu (105) - - AUG 23, 2017
Aromat: Fenole i alkohol niestety. Trochę słodu. Mało intensywnie.
Wygląd: Ogroma piana, tym razem dosyć trwała. Kolor złoty, piwo zamglone
Smak: Jest dosyć słodko. W posmaku fenole, słód, alkoholu już na całe szczęśnie nie m. Pustawo. Trochę estrów też
Odczucie: Wytrawnie, wysoko wysycone, no jakaś tam goryczka może i jest.
Podsymowanie: Dosyć mocno fenolowe, wysoko wysycone i z lekką podbudową słodową piwo. Mało złożone, goryczka wyczuwalna, nic specjalnego

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 aroma bem lupulado para uma trapista cor amarelada média boa carbonatação espuma relativamente resistente sabor Complexo da trapista o fundo mas com razoável influência do amargor do lúpulo ao final forte prevalência do lúpulo sobre o malte não é o que eu procuro em uma trapista mas é boa cerveja nota 7

TomHendriksen (726) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2017
Fles gedeeld door LiekevdV. Het is een licht troebel goudgeel bier met een stevige schuimkraag. Het heeft een lekkere bitter kruidige smaak met enkele zoete tonen.
