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)

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, - MAR 31, 2009
Bouteille de 330 ml. Nos yeux observent une bière de couleur ambrée fonçée ainsi qu’un col de mousse très imposant et durable qui cache complètement la bière du début jusqu’à la fin de la dégustation. Au nez on découvre des arômes de levure fruitée, de pain, de miel et de houblon floral. En bouche le corps est moyen-rond avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte des saveurs tout en finesse de levure fruitée, de pain, de sucre, de fleurs avec en finale une amertume sèche.

16.12.2017 (trappist glass, 330ml) //
Look: Juicy apricot yellow with tall, off-white head //
Aroma: Cat food, malty, fruity //
Mouthfeel: Decent flow, but huge, burpy carbonation -- leaves a lump in back of throat (it works for this ale) //
Taste: Belgian, caramel, herbal hops, sour and spicy with a metallic edge, sweetness is sugary //
Overall: Solid Belgian. Sour and dry at the end. Isn't very unique. ///

Beers0mniac (150) - Joensuu, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2017
Hazy yellow color with foamy white head.Aroma has typical belgian yeast, combined with fruits and malts. Taste has the same elements: yeast, fruits, mixed with spices and hops. Finishes dry. Average carbonation. Overall very nice tripel

walrussell (193) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2017
Not an everyday beer, but if you're in the mood for something bigger, it is amazing. The estery yeastiness shares the stage with a good amount of hoppiness and a surprising amount of almost pilsner-y maltiness. Rich flavor, nice and dry for 8%.

thellgren (1147) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2017
0.75 l bottle with champagne cork. Appearance is dark golden, cloudy, bubbly and nice head. This indeed has a dry ending, not bitter (in English way) not hoppy (in American way) but dry in Belgian way. Absolutely great. No taste of the quite high ABV, but very (dangerously) easy to drink.

Dorado intenso y nuboso y una cabeza de espuma de un tono blanco hueso. Sus aromas de cereales frescos son característicos en una cerveza con gran presencia de malta pils. Además presenta notas de limón amarillo, durazno y hierba luisa en nariz con un ligero bouquet herbal. En boca, hace sentir un carácter cítrico y toques de durazno y pera y un equilibrante amargor. El cuerpo sedoso y la carbonatación completan una buena cerveza belga
