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. It is quite reminiscent of wine with its aromatic caresses of citrus & floral herbs. Impressions include that of toasted bread characters & the fruity taste of grapes. The finish is elegant giving a smattering of bitter hops combined with the bitter herbal aromas of citrus zest & cloves. 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.
