Beer Tasting: Chimay Cinq Cents (White)
This is a tripel style ale from Abbaye Notre Dame de Scourmont in Belgium. This beer was tried along side of the other two styles of ale from Chimay. Jump over here for our tasting notes for the "red" and over here for our tasting notes for the "blue." These 12 ounce bottles were purchased together in a gift box (with accompanying glassware). My box was bought in December '05 and stored at 54F since that time and Adam's was purchased and consumed within a day. Could the length of time from purchase have influenced our reviews? Hm...... Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability.
