This was a Christmas gift from a fellow beer aficionado who knows what I like. Cinq Cents 1 PT bottle poured into a tulip glass:

Appearance: A cloudy yellow-gold bubbling with a beautiful one finger white head. Moderate lacing coats the glass. Very nice.

Aroma: Floral accents and a gentle breath of citrus. Subtle tones.

Taste: I am generally not a fan of Tripels, and I expected a strong bite of aftershave/cough syrup. Not so. Like the aroma, the taste is actually fairly mild, with a touch of alcohol on the back end, but mostly that light floral taste up front.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation and a fairly light body blend to tickle the tongue in a nice, inviting way.

Overall: Much more subtle than I expected. I did not consider myself a fan of Tripels, but Chimay is changing my mind. I'll have to explore a little more to see if I can appreciate the style in the future. Definitely a winner here!
