3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2004 A cloudy golden body.
A balanced aroma from some toffee and perfume.
The Cinq Cent has a cedar-tree-aroma and flavour; or like a pencil(?).

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This golden beer has a rich creamy head with heavy lacing. The nose is sweet with bready malt and lightly herbal hops. The medium-bodied palate is creamy with lgiht malty character and a touch of citrusy hops as well as the slightest hint of wet paper. The finish is lightly malty with some afterthoughts of herbal hops.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden light amber with a large beige rocky head. Crisp spring like line dried sheets aroma. Alcohol is the dominate aroma though once this warms as is the taste. Average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden color,medium sized foamy head that had a decent amount of staying power.Malty aroma with slightly sweet tone mild hops and a slight floral attitude.The flavor was mildly malty with a good fruity taste the alcohol has a little bite to it in the taste but it fades after awhile.The after taste is bitter with a slight fruit tone to it.Nice feel in the mouth Fairly high carbonation,kind of makes the flavors dance around on the toungue a bit.Not bad,I think i prefer some of the American versions a little more then this one but it certainly is a pretty good brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My least favorite of the Chimay colors, but it's still very good. Mindboggingly huge head that eventually (after like 15 minutes) fades into a light layer lazily floating on the surface. Yeasty and hoppy aroma that lends to the same in the taste along with hints of raisin. it also has a pleasant aftertaste that melts quickly.

Lovely white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy, citrus, a bit yeasty, apricot and pears, and a little pepper. Nice golden, hazy color. Taste is peaches, peppery, lovely dry finish. My favorite Chimay.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap! First ever tapped here in Arizona. What a treat. Deep rich blond head. Aroma is distinctively malty, a little fruity. A wonderful balance of complex flavors shine through. It's highlighted in the end by a dry, zesty finish. Drinking this ,I'm only a few stories from heaven.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2004 Golden-orange body with considerable carbonation and a massive frothy white head. Fantastic quality of esters in the aroma: bubble gum, banana, and strawberry. Also orange citrus, yeast, baking soda, hay, and barnyard. Has the Chimay signature aroma that's hard to pinpoint verbally. Fruit peel bitterness, pepper, and flowers in the flavor. Tingly but smooth feel. The smoothest and most drinkable of the Chimay brews. It melts in your mouth. Complex for sure but not in the Chimay Bleu range.
