What a beautiful beer this is. Streams of bubbles quickly flow up the sides of the chalice to a crown of dense head, the champagne of beers.
After finding your way through the maze of yeast, the nose reveals hints of banana. Thoroughly unexpected, but very enjoyable.
The surprises continue when the bitter hops spring to life on your taste buds, and your suspicions are confirmed when you detect the banana flavour your nose already predicted.
Chimay Tripel´s carbonation really brings it to life and balances the warm, full body.
Overall this beer is fantastic. Unfortunately, it isn´t sitting very well so it suffers on the drinkability scale. Someone with stronger stomach might be able to handle more than one of these. And the 8% ABV really creeps up on you. Definitely worth a taste!
