Chimay Glass night at McNellies (buy a chimay keep the goblet)
It was a beautiful site chimay goblets all around full of golden elixir topped with meringue like head. I made feeble attempts to explain its origins but alas it fell upon deaf and drunk ears for these Coors light drinkers had never drank an 8% beer. They tried to understand but they did not know how Belgian monkeys could brew such a fine beer ….I tried to explain monks and the monistic life (abstinence) but they were not listening. I tried explaining the yeast and its importance and how it is responsible for the earthy aromas with hints of raisins and how the hops gives it crispness they were not buying any of it. Belgian monkeys sure can brew good beer they would say I would shake my head
in disgust….beer hell indeed

It was a nice treat to find this on tap at a pub in Northern California. This is a very nice triple. It has a lovely nose, a nice chewy mouth, and a smooth finish.

An ethereal nose of straw, yeast, and esther begins the Cinq Cents journey. A hoary cloud of fluffy but sturdy foam caps a golden body, much like it does with the rouge. The body is solid and lush, and the flavor is full, finishing in a tasteful combination of fruitiness, yeast, alcohol, and hoppy bitterness-- and in that order. A fine brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Bright copper coloring with just a bit of a head. Yeasty aromas. Hoppy and refreashing but also has a bit of Heineken-ish skunkiness to it. Carbonation is fantastic.

On tap at the freakin frog las vegas. This stuff is heavenly, but I suppose that’s just a matter of my opinion. The aroma of this stuff is wonderful, must be served in proper glassware. Apparently Rosemary’s here in town has it too with other rare beers, but I’ve yet to give that a try. If you can find it on tap, go for it and go broke. Of course, it’s one of my all time favorites..
