Updated Review 04/08
On-tap at Cypress Pint & Plate, Atlanta, GA, USA. 0.25 L serving in the correct glassware. No head (bad pour by the bar), but plenty of carbonation.
Settles down to give a rather unique tripel experience in as much as we continue to get that soapy, hoppy finish which is unusual for the style.
Better exprience from the bottle I feel.
Original Review 07/04
It might be worth saying that I am a huge fan of Chimay in general, but this was a bit a let down.
I drank this on-tap at The Flying Saucer in Memphis. Served in a genuine Chimay glass, it was simply too cold for me! I am positive that the temperature seriously reduced the aromas that I would normally expect with this beer. Some banana undertones, but that was about it. It also had a somewhat “soapy” or “disinfectant” quality about it.
Color and appearance was as expected. The least favorite of the Chimay’s for me.
