I've had the Red and Blue Chimay's but for some reason never tasted the White.
Pours a hazy light brown.
Very nice pillowy head that never completely gores away; lacing on the sides.
Aroma is of yeast and banana.
This beer is delicious.
This is what I love above Chimay - they don't make a lot of different beers but what they make is spectacular.

L-A nice blonde/orange/hazy color, with a visible yeast and spice presence
S- Smells of clove, yeast, and a hint of citrus
T- Their is a hint of banana and clove, but their is more of a presence of a yeast flavor
F- The feel is the highest quality of this beer. It goes down like velvet, with a constant level of carbonation. The beer feels best at 45 degrees Fahrenheit, but is not bad in the 50's. The feel is smooth and on the tongue.
H- The head is very frothy, depending on the pour, one can get two to three fingers of a light cream looking froth that will dissipate within 3 minutes.

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.
