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)

This Chimay was a bit bitter for me...pretty harsh. Need to try another bottle. May have gotten a bad one.

Aroma of honey, figs, and booze. Clear gold colour. Boozy front with notes of burnt caramel and date. Medium body with lively carbonation. Quite a tasty brew.

La mia birra preferita. Si presenta di un bel color giallo paglierino torbido dovuto alla rifermentazione in bottiglia. Schiuma abbondante, fine e persistente. Allolfatto note fruttate di pesca, albicocca e di mandarino. In bocca unesplosione di sapori. Questa birra 8 gradi ma non si sente per niente, la sua frizzantezza e il suo corpo riescono a camuffare lalcol rendendola particolarmente beverina. I sentori sono di frutta gialla, note di caramello che si bilanciano con la lieve acidit. Nel finale rimane agrodolce. Una birra eccezionale.

romshah (5) - Beaurains, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2017 does not count
bottle, mainly malt smell when opening, looking for other fruit but difficult to find, taste bitter with some lingering aftertaste, dry, not so creamy and a bit harsh aftertaste. Can taste the alcohol.

Estebanik (934) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Piana mega trwała, zbita, drobna. W aromacie brzoskwinie, suszone morele. Fenole ukryły się gdzieś w tle, ale jakoś mi ich tu nie brakuje. W smaku przyjemnie, jest dość wytrawnie, choć nie aż tak jak w niektrych stylowych pobratymcach. Wysoko nasycone, rześkie, bardzo mocno owocowe. Bardziej soczyste od niektrych polskich NE IPA:D Klasa.

puren (887) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
PREZENTACJA: przejrzyste, złote, piana jest ogromna, ale szybko się dziurawi i pozostaje po niej chmurkowo-kołnierzykowy harmider, ładnie zdobi szkło;
AROMAT: ulotny, lekko winny, przaśny, przyprawowy, chlebowy z nutą drewnianą;
ODCZUCIE: ciało niskie, wysoko nasycone;
SMAK: zboże, chleb, nutka winna, średnia średnio długa drewniana goryczka;
OGLNIE: takie sobie, trochę bez wyrazu, nie czuć w ogle alkoholu.

davidf93 (19) - Stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 11, 2017
Served quite cold from a tulip, nice frothy head. Appearance is yellow with some cloud. Tangy, bread and banana like flavours. Very smooth, almost Weiss like with pronounced yeast-strain flavours and slight bitter aftertaste.

Balanced. Bread, cream, banana, coriander. Slightly more pronounced bitterness than f.e. a Karmeliet.

BrewWhatIWant (78) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2017
Pours a hazy yellow like aged leather with a big white head that lasts forever leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is hoppy with a bit of fruity sweetness. Taste is fairly bitter, a bit sweet, and a little tart with medicinal, tannic dryness. Notes of noble hops up front, along with lemon, bubblegum, peach, wheat, and some peppery spice. It has a very foamy, full mouthfeel and plenty of carbonation. On the first sip it seemed too medicinal and off putting, but it grew on me.
