To celebrate Belgian beer week, I thought I would review Chimay Cinq Cents Tripel. A 750mL bottle poured into a Chimay glass.

A - a cloudy golden yellow appearance to it, pours into the glass with a frothy head of light white foam.

S - I get some fruit, banana and lemon; clove, and yeast.

T - on the palate I mainly get the fruit that I smelled, banana is the most prominent. The finish on this beer is interesting, sweetness, some corriander, and very light hops.

M - medium-bodied with some chewiness to it. The carbonation is might be a bit more than what I like though.

O - an extremely good offering from Chimay, no complaints here. I like that the beer does have some complexity to it, offering different flavors from the initial hit on the palate to the finish. A very well made beer, definitely worth trying.
