look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a stubbie bottle into an oversived wine glass.
A-Cloudy straw color with a fluffy shite head. Minimal lacing (which is probably th efault of the glass)
S-Slight smell of florals and alcohol.
T-Wow. I have been trying many differnt tripels in the past few months, and I have to say that this is one of my favorites. There is a spicy note to it, but it is subtle where others seem to be almost overwhelming.
MF-he carbonatoin is high and as such it tickles the tongue a little. Thinner than I was expecting orm looking at it, but it felt very nice.
D-The second most drinkable tripel I've ever had. I enjoyed myself very much.
Overall, I enjoyed it. I'm not done looking for different tripels to try, but I can see me coming back ot this one often.

4.18/5 rDev +1.2%

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.
