Had this on tap at Dr. Dremos served in a Chimay chalice. It appears dark golden yellow in color with a decent sized white form head. There are streams of little bubbles coming from the bottom that seem to keep a thin head in place. The aroma is a slight on of hops with citrus and a slight alcohol smell, not too strong of an aroma on this one. Very hoppy flavor with a fruity sweetness about it and a hint of some spiciness. There is also some alcohol warmth to it with a yeasty finish. Good mouthfeel with a good bit of carbonation. Fairly drinkable and complex, an good brew to have occasionally.

Poured from their capped bottle into a chalice, nice two finger head,tight small cream colored bubbles, left significant lacing. Did not hold as long as the Chimay red, but certainly above average. Color is a hazy straw orange.
Smell some nuttiness and slightly more hop notes than what I have come to expect from Chimay, but definitely pleasing. As I often say in my reviews, this is not my best area, so I often miss subtle notes.
First taste had an almost almond bright note, then the citrus, last some spice, very subtle peppery bite, not bad, don't panic, it isn't spicy in the sense that it creates heat. Like all of the Chimay brands, other flavors show up as they warm. The chalice is a must!
Mouthfeel is full and rich all the way. Unlike American attempts at this type, the Belgians know how to hide their ABV!
Overall, I prefer Chimay Red, followed by Blue, then this. That being said, this is an outstanding Belgian Triple, well worth the experience, my guess is it is a great first Triple, because the color and aroma will please many different palates.
