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)

olliejobbins (1578) - Dorking, Surrey, - MAR 2, 2013
Pours a hazy golden complexion, with large head which slowly diminished into a moderate head. A fruity aroma. The flavour was complex, a rich fruity, hoppy taste. The beer was viscous in consistency and such. Overall a very tasty beer.

Bill Becker (1321) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Sep 2006 Poured from caged and corked 750ml bottle(Cork says 06 06) a reddish gold with a huge billowy head of foam that simply wouldn't quit. It finally *did* settle down to a solid layer with lots of pretty lacing. The smell is yeasty and fruity with some clove. A nice nose indeed. The taste has a strong malt presence up front that has some sweet to semi sweetness to it. That's followed by a fruitness of apricot and banana with a nice mild clove flavour. There's also flavours of yeast and some citrus sourness near and through the finish. But...the biggest thing I can say about this sample is that it tastes so damn fresh! I've had older, perhaps not handled correctly, samples before that did not impress me at all and made me avoid buying more. Until now. Damn, this is a very good Trippel and so darn drinkable! Bottom line: This bottle of Chimay Cinq Cents is inspiring. I'm going to buy some more and sock away a few bottles for later enjoyment.(no mishandling of them...guaranteed!) Highly recommended!

Bitek (770) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Dominują przyprawy, w tle nieco słodowości i owocków. Średnio treściwe, przyjemnie słodkawe. Goryczka średnia do niskiej, wysokie, musujące wysycenie.

oberschlesier (122) - Kattowitz, UPPER SILESIA, - OCT 13, 2017
Aromat przypraw, kwiatowy, witbierowy, belgijskie drożdże, nawet przyjemny. W smaku to samo, do tego goryczkowo-alkoholowy. Piana typowo belgijska - obfita, grubopęcherzykowa. Wysycenie duże, ale jak na belgijskie ale to nie ekstremalne. Kolor jasny.

Bottle. Hazy dark golden colour with a large white head, nose is yeasty, fruity and slightly malty with notes of banana, pear and apples, taste is sweet and quite tart that leads to a very dry finish.

ironcontra (399) - POLAND - OCT 11, 2017
Typical belgian yeasts, raisins, perhaps some white wine, a somewhat discordant bitter / chem aftertaste, a bit watery and 1D compared to the greats of this style but acceptable for sure

biilz (159) - SPAIN - OCT 9, 2017
Запах на удивление очень хлебный. Пиво имеет пышную пену с крупными пузырями. Имеет легкий привкус цитруса и очень сильный вкус горячи на языке после глотка. Он буквально вяжет язык.Очень своеобразное пиво. И да, это пиво несмотря на 8 градусов очень питкое и алкоголь вообще не чувствуется.

3.2
Craftakt (132) - Hannover, Lower Saxony, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2017
Dominante Malzaromen mit leichter Bitterkeit und Noten von süßlichem Karamell bilden zusammen mit leicht fruchtiger Orange ein guter Triple. Meiner Meinung nach jedoch nicht so gut wie sein Ruf.
