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)

Wow! Yum. Everything in this beer seems so well balanced. Pours a beautiful golden colour and has a great belgian yeast aroma that’s slightly sweet. Head doesn’t quit and lacing is excellent. Carbonation was just right and he mouth feel is nice and silky. Taste was really balanced between the malt, hops and yeast. An awesome beer!

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2017 aroma bem lupulado para uma trapista cor amarelada média boa carbonatação espuma relativamente resistente sabor Complexo da trapista o fundo mas com razoável influência do amargor do lúpulo ao final forte prevalência do lúpulo sobre o malte não é o que eu procuro em uma trapista mas é boa cerveja nota 7

Fles gedeeld door LiekevdV. Het is een licht troebel goudgeel bier met een stevige schuimkraag. Het heeft een lekkere bitter kruidige smaak met enkele zoete tonen.

Skvělý tripel, hodně podobný tomu Karmelietu, nicméně ten mi chutnal více. I tomuto ale pivu nejde nic moc co vytknout, skvělý říz, aroma po ovsi a banánu a hustá pěna.

Aroma citrico, sabor de pão, menos adocicado do que tripel comum. Restrogosto leve, cítrico. Boa demais.

SlackerMads (3406) - DENMARK - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle. Hazy golden with a large off white head with good retention, lace and regeneration. Pleasant nose with dry grass, hay, honey and flowers. The flavour follows the nose with hay, dry grass, dry flowers and herbs. Medium to full body, relatively mild sweetness and fairly bitter. Long dry finish with dry flowers and herbal notes. Pretty good, perhaps slightly rough in places.
