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)

33 cL bottle. Pours hazy orange with a huge huge off-white creamy head. Lovely spiced yeasty and caramel malty aroma. Soft caramel flavoured with a small spice note breaking through in the beginning. Goes into a more yeast and spice dominated flavour. Ends slight bitter and spiced. This is by far my favourite chimay and one of the best belgians of all.

An orange beer with a beutiful head. It has the aroma of orange and fruit and the tastes of the same. It is very well balanced between the sweetness and the bitter lingering. A great beer that I enjoy on a regular basis.

Hazy gold - amber beer, a little white head. Light dry palate. Dry creamy malt with a bitter orange and a spicy bite. Finishes dry and a little sweet. Okay but over dry.

cgarvieuk (26604) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2007
amber blonde beer, with a typical belgian hop nose, triple in style but not best example

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottled. Hazy orange colour, huge foamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some wood, earth and mildly spicy. Flavour is yeast, hops, some wheat and also some alcohol. Alcohol isn’t burning bad though.

omhper (26031) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2002
Pale amber, hazy rich head. Banana aroma. Lively and complex. Very flavourful and fruity. Peppery. This is an old favourite I have not sampled for far too long.
