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 beers 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)

Wasnt bad.. Wasnt great. Thought it was overrated. Like a hybrid between a tripel and an IPA.

Bottle at home. Pours light golden. Medium thick, white head. Spicy, with honey, yeast, green pepper, sweet malts and hops. Medium carbonation, with long, bittering aftertaste. Well done.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a big creamy long-lasting head. Aroma is sweet and fresh dominated by fruits. Taste is rich and sweet.

Aroma of honey, figs, and booze. Clear gold colour. Boozy front with notes of burnt caramel and date. Medium body with lively carbonation. Quite a tasty brew.

19Oracolo78 (60) - - FEB 20, 2017
La mia birra preferita. Si presenta di un bel color giallo paglierino torbido dovuto alla rifermentazione in bottiglia. Schiuma abbondante, fine e persistente. Allolfatto note fruttate di pesca, albicocca e di mandarino. In bocca unesplosione di sapori. Questa birra 8 gradi ma non si sente per niente, la sua frizzantezza e il suo corpo riescono a camuffare lalcol rendendola particolarmente beverina. I sentori sono di frutta gialla, note di caramello che si bilanciano con la lieve acidit. Nel finale rimane agrodolce. Una birra eccezionale.

romshah (9) - Beaurains, FRANCE - FEB 19, 2017 does not count
bottle, mainly malt smell when opening, looking for other fruit but difficult to find, taste bitter with some lingering aftertaste, dry, not so creamy and a bit harsh aftertaste. Can taste the alcohol.

Estebanik (945) - Lublin, POLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Piana mega trwała, zbita, drobna. W aromacie brzoskwinie, suszone morele. Fenole ukryły się gdzieś w tle, ale jakoś mi ich tu nie brakuje. W smaku przyjemnie, jest dość wytrawnie, choć nie aż tak jak w niektrych stylowych pobratymcach. Wysoko nasycone, rześkie, bardzo mocno owocowe. Bardziej soczyste od niektrych polskich NE IPA:D Klasa.

puren (897) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - FEB 13, 2017
PREZENTACJA: przejrzyste, złote, piana jest ogromna, ale szybko się dziurawi i pozostaje po niej chmurkowo-kołnierzykowy harmider, ładnie zdobi szkło;
AROMAT: ulotny, lekko winny, przaśny, przyprawowy, chlebowy z nutą drewnianą;
ODCZUCIE: ciało niskie, wysoko nasycone;
SMAK: zboże, chleb, nutka winna, średnia średnio długa drewniana goryczka;
OGLNIE: takie sobie, trochę bez wyrazu, nie czuć w ogle alkoholu.

davidf93 (26) - Stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 11, 2017
Served quite cold from a tulip, nice frothy head. Appearance is yellow with some cloud. Tangy, bread and banana like flavours. Very smooth, almost Weiss like with pronounced yeast-strain flavours and slight bitter aftertaste.
