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)

Glorious things of thee are spoken, Chimay White. A hymn of praise should be written to extol thy greatness. Why have I been remiss so long to enjoy thy bounty?

Typical Belgium yeast notes. However more bitter than normal. I would like to try to get in after letting it warm up. Also aging supposedly mellows this beer. Might be worth putting a way a sixpack trying one in a year and then in two ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2017 Stor skumkrone. Heftig malt i næsen. Høj alkohol og klar maltprofil, der lever fuld krop. En tripel i balance.

This is my favourite Chimay. I kept this one to try it with my volleyball friends for the opening of the season. You gotta love Belgian beer know-how.

Pouring it from the bottle into a Chimay chalice glass, you get the familiar banana ester smell from the yeasts used in the fermentation. Great looking beer with a head that retains itself very well. Taste is mildly sweet, malt, spice, pear, orange. Good trippel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml one year old bottle poured into Stone snifter. A: Hazy amber, very foamy head, very good retention, left lots of lacing. S: Phenols, peaches and hints of booze. T: Phenols, starch and slightly bitter peaches. M: Not much carbonation, medium body, slight burn from the booze. O: A classic Tripel, the year of aging took some of the bitterness off it.

Excellent Tripel, rich in flavor but well-balanced. One of the better of its kind.

DamMag (5) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2017 does not count
Lightly hazy deep golden colour. Spritzy pour with a large head that dissipates fast. Aroma medium high citrus, orange skin, bubblegum, tropical/stone fruit. Perfumy alcohol. Taste citrus and bubblegum and tropical fruit. Crusty bread. Spritziness makes it easy drinking with a medium full body. Noticeable clean alcohol. Complex yet easy drinking beer. Very well made.
