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)

paulvanpelt (610) - Reusel, - JUL 1, 2012
UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Mooie gouden kleur. Troebel, witte schuimkraag. Aroma van hop, citrus, gist, honing. Levendig palet door voldoende koolzuur. Smaak begint prettig zoet, gaat mooi over in een bittere afdronk. Nasmaak iets te bitter, verder heel mooie tripel.

Its a quite strong, powefull beer. The appearance is not so special. I think for this is for real belgen beer lovers.

Heidelbeer (33) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2017
Today i am rating one of my favorite beers. Head is creamy, off withe to beige in color, big and long lasting. Beer is unclear dark, milky yellow. Aroma is intense, herbal, floral, soapy, yeasty and like coriander, a bit peppery. Unusual and complex. Flavor is full, sweet, bitter, sour, wheat, herbal, yeast. Very multi-layered and all sensation at once. Finish is first low sweet turning into a strong bitter, herbal and yeasty long lasting finish. Carbonation is average and refreshing. A beer to enjoy from the beginning to the end!

Primekick (40) - POLAND - APR 23, 2017
UPDATED: APR 24, 2017 Barwa bursztynowa, wysoka piana. W aromacie belgijsko + banan. W smaku troszkę słodko, przyprawy, czuć chmiel. Wysokie nasycenie, ktre mimo to nie przeszkadza.

Hazy dark yellow with strong pure white head. Earthy belgian yest, banana, coriander, some maltyness. Yeast, lots of herbs, especially coriander. I think this could have used more waiting. Nice but not stellar. Perhaps needs maturing.

Sublime complex taste, suprisingly strong for a blonde beer. Has some citruses. Thick and long-lasting foam. Its both interesting and pleasing.

Draft Taproom (Charlottesville). Surprised to find I hadnt rated this. Only slightly hazy with a head that laces the fuck out of the glass. Banana, spice, light garbage water, gum in the nose. Flavor is crisp grasses, bubblegum, coriander, other spice, fruit.
