CHIMAY Cinq Cents


8.0%

The Chimay Cinq Cents, with its golden hue, offers a rare balance of mellowness and bitterness.
It is a subtil combination of fresh hops and yeast.

Chimay Cinq Cents is an authentic trappist beer

That means that it is brewed within the walls of a Trappist monastery under the supervision and responsibility of the monastic community, which is involved in the entire process of making and selling the ale.

The bulk of the revenue that this activity generates is used to finance social services and cover the community’s needs.

The Cinq Cents was first brewed in 1966 by reverend Father Theodore and it was his final contribution to the Chimay line of beers. It was formerly known as “White Cap” and no other brew has been created since. Cinq Cents translates to 500, honoring the 500th anniversary of the Principality of Chimay whose support made the founding of the Scourmont Abbey possible in 1850.

Chimay Cinq Cents has a typical golden color, a slightly hazy appearance topped with a fine foam which releases a bouquet of fruity esters and floral-hop aromas. Mellow flavors of muscat, golden raisins and fresh bread are perfectly balanced by the distinct hoppy bitterness.
