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.

RaduPopovici (5) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 10, 2016 does not count
Bottle 330 ml in Bucharest, at Bistro GUXT. Poured in the Chimay’s branded glass. Beautiful hazy copper color with a white and creamy nice head, with good retention and lacing. Very appealing aroma with bready and biscuity hints< also hay, caramel, honey, citrus peel, fruits (banana and grapefruit) and spices (especially coriander, but also some spicy and pepery hints). Some bitter and discrete alcoholic notes. Really nice. Taste shows at least as much complexity as the aroma. Bitter-sweet with coriander hints, also banana and grapefruit and some pepper and cloves as well. Well integrated alcohol. Pretty intense and lingering aftertaste with a bitter and dry finish. Some discrete alcohol in the end as well as some spicy and mineral hints. Medium body, medium carbonation. Creamy, velvety and warm in the mouth. O very good tripel showing great complexity and perfect ballance. Very easy to drink, very enjoyable, I’ll drink it anytime in the future.

klukas (154) - Rijeka, CROATIA - DEC 9, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass. Appearance: Hazy pale-orange colour, with rich creamy head and lively carbonation (like a little spring) with floating bits. Aroma: Malt, dusty, metallic, bread, a hint of alcohol… Palate: Full body, moderate carbonation with many small nibbling bubbles. Taste: Hint of sweetness which soon turns to bitterness; whole grain bread, metallic-grapefruit-bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Very enjoyable and tasty, pure pleasure. Somehow different than many other beers.

imperial_suchy (61) - Rybnik, POLAND - DEC 7, 2016
Piwo koloru złotego z obfitą pianą, lekko mętne. Pachnie owocami cytrusowymi, czuć rodzynki, jabłka, zioła. W smaku czuć wytrawny alkohol, rodzynki, zioła, goździki, delikatny posmak brzoskwiniowy. Piwo jest dosyć wytrawne z wysokim wysyceniem.

Gluepot (501) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2016
Powerhouse off white head on an unfiltered amber body. Softy citrus hop and spice nose. Citrus hops, banana esters, cloves, cereal and candied fruit produce a crisp and fresh taste profile. The hops are a nice addition to the typical Chimay taste array.
