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)

imperial_suchy (59) - 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.

At Herman, Berlin. [I have only a rating for this beer but no review, because I couldn’t write a review when I tried this one. I am going to drink it again soon and write a proper review.]

Gluepot (500) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Powerhouse off white head on an unfiltered amber body. Softy citrus hop and spice nose. Citrus hops, banana esters, cloves, cereal and candied fruit produce a crisp and fresh taste profile. The hops are a nice addition to the typical Chimay taste array.

Bottle. It poured a cloudy orange color with a big frothy white head. The aroma was malty, Belgian spice, raisins and banana. There was a light bitterness on the finish.

La Chimay Blanche est un autre exemple de l’excellence de la maîtrise brassicole de l’abbaye de Chimay. Entre puissance et douceur, cette triple sait trouver un équilibre juste. De couleur blond doré et paré d’un léger voile, elle est surmontée d’une mousse blanc crème de 2 à 3 cm d’épaisseur s’affaissant au long de la dégustation pour se maintenir à quelques mm en fin de dégustation. Le nez est avant tout sur les céréales avec un brin de coriandre. L’attaque est toute en souplesse et douceur sur les céréales et avec des arômes de fruits rouges. La deuxième attaque est splendide. En parallèle apparaissent 1.la puissance de l’amertume, sur des arômes d’orange et de girofle, tout en intensité et 2. des arômes de sucre candi et de fruits jaunes donnant de l’ampleur à la bière, tout en douceur et suavité. L’ensemble est d’une parfaite homogénéité avec des arômes s’intégrant parfaitement. La corpulence est excellente avec un sucre résiduel bien présent (un tantinet trop à mon goût, mais cela ne peut en rien être objecté à notre triple) et l’alcool s’intègre parfaitement, montant crescendo vers un final long présentant quelques notes épicées. Une grande bière, un grand moment.

Pure white choppy head stayed impeccably on hazy light brown body. Orange, sweet citrus and yeast aroma. Very clean on the palate, quite often Tripels are cloying. Bitter sweet citrus, orange, banana, yeast and a slight hint of cloves.
