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)

slang's rating

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAY 16, 2007
11.2 bottle. Great looking golden/orange w/ a large white head. Strong nose of yeast, hops, and alcohol. The taste is sweet, alcoholic, then lingers with an odd hop bitterness. At first it was overpowering, almost metallic, but it get less intrusive and finishes nicely.

Triple zonder veel smaak en bittere afdronk. Zeker niet mijn smaak, niet meer nemen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabic (557) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 3, 2017
Ar: Banana and white peach; black pepper, star anise, and fruity coriander; sweet cracker maltiness. Ap: Deep gold and hazy; large off-white head with excellent retention, leaving a picture-perfect cap of super-airy foam and dry webs of bubbly coating on the glass sides. T: Rich pear and plum; doughy and slightly sweet, with a bit of alcohol warmth; white pepper and dried flowers; orange and banana on the finish, with a high, slightly earthy bitterness. P: Medium body with very high carbonation, prickly full foam; finish is dry. O: A classic tripel, with austere and refined quality; bright, satisfying fruit esters, with lots of spice and hops lending a delicious complexity; warming yet exceptionally drinkable, one part quaffing beer and another party sipping beer!

Puissate et enivrante, elle sait dépasser le cliché de la blanche fade classique, un bon standard

NiklasT (32) - SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2017
Golden, slightly hazy. Spicy aroma, some sweetnes. Well balanced, medium carbonated. It deserves its position as a clasic. Very nice!

It’s a quite strong, powefull beer. The appearance is not so special. I think for this is for real belgen beer lovers.
