This was the first Chimay I ever tried and I was hoping for a lot more. The blue one was definetly better.

Poured a 11.2 oz bottle into a Chimay Chalice...
A: Murky glowing golden with a foamy white 2" head.
S: Noble hops up front with a breast yeast character following.
T: Pale malt with an excellent hop balance. Both malt & hop shine, but in a way that expresses both & therefore balances the beer without obscuring either...superb!
M: Drier & cleaner then most tripels I've had.
O: A very interesting & complex tripel, worth a try for any lover of Belgiums or any good beer lover for that matter!

A: poured into a chalice to a hazy deep gold topped by a dense and fluffy white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of fruity esters, spicy yeast and alcohol with some nice sweetness on the nose
T: taste is slightly tart and spicy with a slight fruity alcohol flavor. slight sweetness but not excessive. swallow is dry cracker malt, spicy yeast and alcohol, fruity esters and some lingering sweetness. a little grape like flavor at times as well.
M: medium in the mouth with soft but adequate carbonation and a dry finish
O: this is a very good tripel with great complexity and flavors. The flavors are very smooth and clean as well so it drinks very easily. It's pretty approachable and a solid representation of the style.
