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)

Again, At first I was dissapointed. As is my experience with Chimay, it had an excellent head, I might even say the best appearance I've ever seen. Anyway, Very mild for the alcohol presence and if it were any other blond, I probably would have given it a higher mark.

Great beer. Nice light body. Faint hit of apples perhaps? Just wonderful. After having this and the red I can't wait to try the blue!

Light colored belgian ale. Nice flavor, but lacks extra flavor of the Bleu.

It seems the perfect beer to me. Although it is a very classic one. You taste the force of it...Unbelievable. Tip: Do not drink 2 of this beers at the end of an evening ;-)

Amazing beer with a perfect balance of phenol and character with a restrained sweetness.
