This is the BEST beer in the World! I have traveled the World in search of it and have brought it to 5 star restaurants with me and served in a chiller. A beer so good you will want it after a night on the floor of the bathroom and still appreciate the taste jedimasternick (96) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - FEB 16, 2003
It is extremely similar to Chimay Red without the abundance of flavors and yet it is equally as impressive. Even though they are all perfect beers I believe the Chimay taste ladder begins with Red on top followed by Blue and then White. cmalc (1) - ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2005 does not count
I love the general aroma of Chimay beers. This one has more character and complexity than the sweet and straightforward Rouge and is better balanced than the rather over the top Blue. It is leaner cleaner and more interstingly complex than either and has a fabulous refreshing mouthful of hops! This is the first beer I have rated here. I’ve given it the maximum rating in every department because over many years of trying and comparing hundreds of beers, this is my absolute favourite and has been so for a long time...Duvel is similar in some ways and is second in my personal ratings, but does not have the almost miraculous WOW factor of the white-cap Chimay.

One of the best tripels of all time. Pretty much defines what a tripel should taste like. Has a beautiful head ,very full golden bodied beer hints of bananas and raisins. Defines the style perfectly. dcharms (5) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2007 does not count
750mL bottle sampled out of a Trappist glass. I LOVE this beer! A light fruity aroma with a bright white medium to large sized head. Pleasing golden color somewhat like Duvel, but with a bit more haze. Very lively carbonation with some hop bitterness. Dry finish. Another excellent beer from Chimay!

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Just wonderful! One of the beers I would need to have a barren island. Chimay White pours a beautiful head, with a nice cloudy burnt golden color. The beer has a complex aroma and with subtle hints of banana. A leaner Belgian triple, if one could be called such a thing. Nice balance of bitterness and wonderful use of yeast, As a matter of fact, it really demonstrates why yeast is such a important ingredient in brewing. Cheers to the monks!!!

I am in love with this beer.
I love Tripel. And La Blanche is a Tripel among Tripels, for sure.
Try as I might, I could find no fault with this brew -- much like Mary Poppins, it is Practically Perfect in Every Way. My current favorite aspect is the nose/aroma -- I would be content to sit and smell the glass for an afternoon. It’s that hint of springtime rhododendron/azalea blooms that sends me over the edge.
And the palate/mouthfeel -- c’est orgasmique.
