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)

Zilverenmaan (91) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 16, 2016
Very soft, complex tripel. Taste, unlike so many tripels, strong: hoppy with dark fruits, aftertaste mildly bitter. Quality.

Growler Guys, Seattle. White cream, clear rich gold. Sweet banana alcohol, rich bready yeast. Creamy heavy tripel. Classic profile, a bit heavier body than I usually think but quite clean and rich. Mild ester, strong alcohol presence, medium carbonation. Nice.

So Im coming off the most productive days of my life and checked in too many times with the boss who was taking care of two lads one sick. First project, Im done in under 18 hours. (sorry boss, newbie) I wasnt expecting to rate a beer tonight but after a lot of firsts: Ive tended bar in the past 20 years and always played moderator. First time I was ever escorted out of a bar because one Luciferian Blond would NOT let me finish a sentence, then went to finest bar in Lancaster to be rendered invisible by a bunch of turtles, then go to what Ive always regarded as a class hotel in a great chain only to be treated like scum, tourists, they bend over backwards for. Im already busy, but now Im driving to Rockville, MD on Tuesday morning to read someone the riot act.....My review of Chimay White and two place reviews you wont want to miss!!! Stayed tuned! When I awake, then I will be scarce till Monday! Oh yeah GREAT BEER here<Thirstys>

RaduPopovici (20) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 10, 2016
Bottle 330 ml in Bucharest, at Bistro GUXT. Poured in the Chimays branded glass. Beautiful hazy copper color with a white and creamy nice head, with good retention and lacing. Very appealing aroma with bready and biscuity hints< also hay, caramel, honey, citrus peel, fruits (banana and grapefruit) and spices (especially coriander, but also some spicy and pepery hints). Some bitter and discrete alcoholic notes. Really nice. Taste shows at least as much complexity as the aroma. Bitter-sweet with coriander hints, also banana and grapefruit and some pepper and cloves as well. Well integrated alcohol. Pretty intense and lingering aftertaste with a bitter and dry finish. Some discrete alcohol in the end as well as some spicy and mineral hints. Medium body, medium carbonation. Creamy, velvety and warm in the mouth. O very good tripel showing great complexity and perfect ballance. Very easy to drink, very enjoyable, Ill drink it anytime in the future.

klukas (206) - Rijeka, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass. Appearance: Hazy pale-orange colour, with rich creamy head and lively carbonation (like a little spring) with floating bits. Aroma: Malt, dusty, metallic, bread, a hint of alcohol Palate: Full body, moderate carbonation with many small nibbling bubbles. Taste: Hint of sweetness which soon turns to bitterness; whole grain bread, metallic-grapefruit-bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Very enjoyable and tasty, pure pleasure. Somehow different than many other beers.

imperial_suchy (123) - Rybnik, POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Piwo koloru złotego z obfitą pianą, lekko mętne. Pachnie owocami cytrusowymi, czuć rodzynki, jabłka, zioła. W smaku czuć wytrawny alkohol, rodzynki, zioła, goździki, delikatny posmak brzoskwiniowy. Piwo jest dosyć wytrawne z wysokim wysyceniem.
