Poured from 0,33 L bottle. Mild aroma of citrus. Cloudy golden in appearance, with white head. Light bitter taste. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Overall an excellent abbey tripel.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Hazy dirty golden color, clean white head with great carbonation and lots of lace. A quick swirl brings a big fluffy head right back up.

Aroma is bready Belgian yeast, candi sugar, dried apricots and peppery spice.

Taste is slightly funky Belgian yeast, spices, light fruit, candi sugar, very subtle white pepper and clove. Just a hint of citrusy lemon zest.

Nice crisp creamy mouthfeel. Super smooth and utterly drinkable. Lively carbonation keeps it light on the palate.

Overall a really nice, smooth, tasty tripel.

Well, there are over a thousand reviews for this beer. So, I'll keep it simple. Chimay is awesome! All of them, including this one.
