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)

Bought a 750 ml bottle of the white for the first time in quite awhile. Why did I wait so long? The presentation is grand, its yellow-orange body is a bit hazy but the head is bright white and frothy. The foam is replenished by a very active effervescence. My Chimay glass is appreciative. A sniff delivers yeast and cotton candy. The first taste is delightful, the yeast once more, dough, apricot, a slight cane sugar sweetness. And then, surprisingly, a lingering, moderate bitter finish. Many moving parts that add up up to extremely nice and drinkable beer.

Bottle at Herman, Berlin. Hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. Aroma is dough, alcohol, some banana and raisins along with some other fruits. Taste is superb, fruity flavour with medium sweetness, light sourness and light bitterness. Palate is very nice, too. It is medium-to-full bodied with a very pleasant creamy texture. A satisfying sensation in the mouth. Head is almost always there and it makes the drinking experience better. Carbonation is average-to-lively. Finish is somewhat bitter and long-lasting, pleasant! I really dig this one.

Barwa ciemnego złota, mętne(z pływającymi drobinkami drożdży). Aromat przyprawowy, są rwnież cytrusy, pomarańcze, estry i nuta przywodząca na myśl biszkopt z miodem. W smaku przyprawy, najpierw owocowa słodycz, po ktrej następuje trochę pikantna goryczka. Dobrze ukryty alkohol, spore wysycenie. Piwo raczej wytrawne, bardzo pijalne.

Boozy wheat, earthy and floral flavors. Fruity but dank. A little bland. I don't understand why it's rated so high. Draft pour at Hopcat in Chicago, 5oz snifter.

rumore (482) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 6, 2017
From the tap at FOB, Rimini, Italy. Pours fairly transparent gold with an abundant head of white foam, very fine. Aroma is resinous, with honey and caramel as well. Body is medium, with some carbonation. Taste is characterized by sweetness, though bitterness is present and alive. Finish is no special.

JtanK (539) - Krakw, POLAND - APR 4, 2017
Sweet aroma of yeast, champagne, toffee or honey, malt. Pours amber-golden with large frothy head. In flavor crispy malt, mild sweet fruitiness, biscuits, caramel, spice, well accented hoppiness with short moderate bitterness. Creamy yeasty-fruity aftertaste. Medium body, lively carbonation. Intense yet balanced, very tasty.

Paggio (21) - ITALY - APR 2, 2017
Bottiglia da 33. Bellissima alla vista: colore ambrato quasi arancio con un bel cappello di schiuma densa e compatta color panna. Olfatto di cereali e frutta non molto intenso. In bocca pi dolce che amara. Pi del gusto intriga la pienezza del corpo e la sua frizzantezza.

CurlyJoe (226) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2017
Hazy golden yellow with creamy white froth. Big belgian, banana aroma. Same flavours there in the taste, some clove too. Nice hit of Belgian yeast. Very smooth combination of flavours. Feels fantastic in the mouth, creamy and luscious.

Pours golden, hazy with abundant foam up top. Aromas of grains, caramel and raisins are present. First taste is delicious, this beer has no bite, it is an easy sip. It is very complex, and a taste of honey on toast is what I perceive. I had this beer several years ago, but never got to review it. For some reason it slipped from my mind and never drank it again, perhaps I was not ready for such a great beer. I will always have some around.

zboj (213) - POLAND - MAR 25, 2017
Piwo ciemnozłote w barwie, wysycenie duże, piana obfita, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa. Utrzymuje się średni krtko, ale ładnie zdobi szkło. W aromacie i smaku dominują nuty chlebowe, trochę bananowe i ziołowe. Goryczka solidna, ziołowa, lekko alkoholowa, trochę zalegająca.
