Notes: Known as Cinq Cents in 0.75l bottles.

The Chimay Triple, which is the brewery’s most recent creation. It is golden in colour, and succeeds remarkably in blending mellowness and bitterness.

Chimay Triple dates back to 1966. But it was launched in 0.75l bottles for the 500th anniversary of the principality of Chimay in 1986. This is why it is also known under the name of "Cinq Cents" (meaning 500) in 0.75l bottles.

330 ml bottle into a Chimay chalice, poured at 50°. Hazy gold, fine white foam cap that laces down per sip.
Aroma of familiar Belgian yeast, biscuit, banana, distant hop.
Taste follows, touch of warm spice. I enjoy the bitter finish.
Feel is medium, medium to high carbonation.
Overall, nice Tripel.,

330ml. bottle in Vientiane, Laos. Pours a coppery red with a medium foamy head. Aroma of dark fruits and bread. Taste of malts, yeast, apple. Moderate bitterness with a tart finish. A very pleasant tripel.

Pours a hazy dark gold color with a 3F stiff very long-lived head with heavy lacing.

Smells of malt, Belgian yeast and bananas.

Tastes of sweet malt, bready yeast and cloves with a slightly bitter, alcohol warm finish.

Medium light body and carbonation. Smooth, clean mouthfeel.

Delicious and excellent!

This is high quality no question but 22 bucks for 4 pak I’m not so sure. The Blue is better and closer to worth 6 bucks a bottle

Poured into snifter.

Nose: Banana, toffee, floral like chamomile.

Taste: Sweet toffee maltiness undercut with hop bitterness, banana, lemon zest.

Body: Smooth, light carb.

I mean, there isn't a bad Chimay, is there? Great tripel offering.

330ml bottle into a glass. Couldn't figure out the code.

Looks decent enough. A cloudy amber body with a big craggy foamy white head. This leaves thick streaks of lacing.

Not much on the nose, good or bad.

On tasting, a light flavored tripel. Smooth, clean, on the sweet side.

Mouth between medium and full, finish faintly sour.

Overall, I enjoyed the drink, though it's hard to see this as a full blooded tripel. It has it's place though.

Poured a 330ml stubby bottle into chalice. A two finger fluffy white head on a cloudy amber. The head sticks around to the end. Lots of sticky lacing.
Spicy sweet smells.
Fruity floral up front. A mildly bitter hop finish.
Incredibly smooth with a deceptively light body and carbonation.
An excellent triple. ABV is well hidden.

My favorite Triple, along with Tripel Karmeliet. Excellent complexity while refreshing. Just the right amount of bitterness. I keep coming back to this one on a regular basis.

I've never had a Trappist ale before , let alone a Chimay . This was much looked forward to .

Look :- Perfect . Deep reddish brown, thick foamy head that lasts and lasts , carbonation that races up the glass . Good lacing .

Smell :- Strong malt , light hops and a hint of honey like sweetness.

Taste . :- First impression is that this is rich , really rich , decadent rich . Bitter too , a bitterness that builds and builds and stops *just* in time to remain pleasant. There's wheat in this beer and you can taste it , the herbs and spices are there but in the background .

Mouth feel:- Very carbonated, good .

Overall:- Good , you can't really taste the flavour of alcohol but at 8% it sure is there . Pretty bitter but in a way that balances nicely. Distinctive wheat taste, fruit and spices in the background. No sediment of note in my glass . If you took a good wheat beer and gilded it you'd get something like this . It's strong ,rich and better for it . You'd want one but not everyday because it's a little bit special and it's a specialness that you'd want to keep .
A really good beer .

Poured at fridge temp. Unknown bottling date as I can't find anything that resembles a date on the bottle. Pours a beautiful orange with fluffy white head. Some murky and definitely opaque. The nose is orange creamsicle, bread, wheat, a floral note, and some grass. Very malty and wonderful.

The taste is amazing. Sweet toffee, maple, bready malts, cereal, lemon, orange, a bit of vanilla, slight hoppy bitterness, an earthy note, and a significant floral note. Great balance between sweet fruit/toffee and bitter hops. Wonderful.

Mouthfeel is fairly light and crisp. A bit on the dry side. Overall, a fantastic tripel!
