Format: a stumpy little 330mL dark brown bottle with a standard macro-style label.

Appearance: poured into a wide-mouth trappist glass. A cloudy amber-orange colour with a one-finger of solid and creamy off-white head. Looks good.

Aroma: a very pleasant aroma of light orchard fruits, some banana, and clove and cardamom spices.

Taste: plenty of bitterness up front with the fruits and spices from the aroma. A good quality Belgian Tripel. Big Belgian yeasts as expected.

Aftertaste: the bitterness drops off a little, to be accompanied by those Belgian yeasts again. Nice.

Mouth feel: medium in body with a moderate carbonation. A bit dry on the finish with the bitterness and yeasts.

Overall: a lovely tripel from Chimay - definitely more special than their Première (Red). I'm still not sold on the AU$75 price for a case of 12 x 330mL - there are just as enjoyable tripels for quite a lot less. Still, I'll definitely pick one of these up when I am having a 'tripel-off' night.

Bottle. Cloudy orange colour. Fruity and spicy nose. 1 finger head that stayed with lacing. A nice dry finish.
