"The Chimay Triple, last-born of the Abbey, is labelled 'Cinq Cents' on the 750 ml bottle. Of a golden colour, the Trappist beer combines sweet and bitter in a rare balance. The beer's aroma felt in the mouth comes from the hops' perfumes: above all, they are fruity touches of Muscat grapes and raisins, even ripe apples. This traditional Belgian beer is best savoured fresh at a temperature of from 43 to 46 °F." —brewer
"Hazed golden straw with a very active carbonation that holds the firm white lace together. Ripe apple skin and medicinal aroma with some pale grainy malt and earthy yeast. Richly textured with the ultra smooth and highly crisp mouth feel, carbonation is high though it is the perfect fixture and helps a bit in drinkability. Hop bitterness is quick but somewhat potent which is followed by an earthy yeast that has a soft powdery quality to it. Big fruitiness, with bold yet suitable alcoholic esters that don't get too flamboyant. Alcohol is a bit illusory, you know its there but not at the 8.0% level. Grainy maltiness with hints of raw orange blossom honey and a good dose of medicinal phenols. Touch of sweetness upfront but eternally dry in the finish." —Jason Alström, BeerAdvocate

"Appearance: Hazy and orange with a creamy, sticky white head.

"Smell: Overall, clean smelling with some mild spice in the background.

"Taste: Sweet / tart balance up-front with a unique bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol notes seem to stay and dominate the mouth. The beer goes crisp, rather dry. More malt sweetness follows along with a very mild tea-like hop flavour that carries thru to the finish. Notes of Concord grape comes to mind.

"Notes: Yet another outstanding, unique and complex beer from Abbaye de Scourmont. Wonderful stuff." —Todd Alström, BeerAdvocate
