Chimay Cinq Cents

In Las Vegas I ordered a Chimay Cinq Cents during dinner at The Public Urban House (The P.U.B.). My buddy Adam had ordered a Delirium and it came in a pint glass, so I put in a special request to have the beer placed in the water glass that was very similar to a wine glass. The waiter argued with me at first, but then said that I would be getting less beer. I was ok with receiving a few less ounces of beer provided it comes in the proper glassware. However, when I received the beer, the glass was only half full. I was not impressed with this serving at all.

On to the beer, it has an orange yellow color with a thin filmy head. The smell is fruity and sweet. The taste is very bubbly and sweet with citrus hints with wine accents. The alcohol content is 8.0% ABV. I thought that this was a very good tripel with the exception that it may be slightly overcarbonated. However, this could be due to the beer being served in the improper glassware, so I think the jury is still out on this beer.

  1. Delirium and Chimay on tap and no good glasses? Don't they get them for free from the distributors??? A place in Vegas has no excuse for serving that beer in pint glasses. I would be embarrassed to be a bartender there...
