Chimay Cinq Cents is a Tripel brewed by Bières de Chimay, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a snifter from a bottle.
The ale pours a relatively clear amber and is topped by a thick, puffy white cap of foam that shows good retention.
The aroma is a pleasant mix of hops and fruity esters with notes of lemon and flowers; pear, banana, apple, and malt.
The palate follows the nose beginning with fruity flavors of pear and apple. Bready malt and lemongrass follow with a light taste of yeasty funk. The finish is spiced with clove and sweet pear.
Its feel has a body that’s a shade over medium and effervescent with its high carbonation.
Lovely aroma and palate. Its feel is spot on. The Chimay Cinq Cents is a really nice Tripel.
