CHIMAY - Blanche Tripel

Chimay Blanche Tripel is well known for its typical golden colour, its slightly hazy appearance and its fine head is especially characterised by its aroma which results from an agreeable combination of fresh hops and yeast.The beer's flavour, as sensed in the mouth, comes from the smell of hops: above all it is the fruity notes of muscat and raisins that give this beer a particularly attractive aroma.The aroma complements the touch of bitterness. There is no acidity, but an after-bitterness which melts in the mouth.This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

Are the mighty Titanic Brewery sinking? It has been reported that this fine brewer of real ales has sent out hazy beer to its outlets. Hazy? Well, hazy would be flattering; cloudy is a more apt description. The offending article happened to be the seasonal Longitude (4.4%) which was well below the usual standard I have come to expect from Titanic. It tasted alright though, a very bitter light copper coloured ale with a smooth mouthfeel and sweet finish. This is a deep and complex beer, where the American hops offset the caramel sweetness to create its bitterness. Are Titanic drowning? Maybe its just a bad year for the hop or their next ale will have to be named 'Snorkel'.
