Superb cloudy golden body with yeasty chunks and a lasting white foamy head. Pleasant and complex malty/hoppy aroma with various notes of herbs, flowers, and fruits. Alcohol is very well hidden. Taste carries nice hoppy flavors and leaves a long bitter finish. Classical...

Labeled as Cinq Cents. Poured a beautiful clody amber, with a lot of bubbles and a good head which dissipated a little quickly - but it was a good show. Palate was more heavy than I would have supposed for the amount of carbonation - it was a nice combo. Malty start, grassy middle, with a hoppy finish. Strong bitter aftertaste. The one major negative for me was the nose, which smelled sopmewhat of a urinal. But all in all this is very enjoyable. God bless the monks!

A very good beer. The taste is rather fruity but distinctive. Easily one of my favorites, it can be hard to keep around the house if company suddenly appears at the door. Can be bought at Trader Joes, World Market and even Von’s in CA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle 03/05. Like the other Chimays, this beer is gorgeous. Hazy and golden. Pour it into a Chimay goblet and you can see the constant stream of tiny bubbles eminating from the etching. Banana is the strongest aroma, but there’s also the omnipresent yeasty and mustiness in most Belgians, along with a subtle citrus and vanilla notes. This is slightly dry and bitter when chilled, but damn is it smoooooth when it begins to warm. Like drinking silk ... seriously. Sweet, spicy and peppery flavor. The alcohol doesn’t present itself until it hits the back of your throat, but even then, it disappears quickly behind a dry, bitter and smooth finish. In my opinion, this is only a tick behind the Red as far as the Chimays go.

This beer has a light brown body - hue apperance and a coarse light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had a lot of carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter with a bitter afther tast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Pours a cloudy orange with a persitant and fluffy off-white head that leaves thick sparse lacing. The nose is spicy and floral, reminding of pepper, cloves and citrus fruits. The flavor was a bit salty, like cured meat with dry yeast and a woody spiciness.The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with very mild carbonation. It leaves a long peppery dry aftertaste with no alchol burn but a nice warm feeling in the stomach. This one was hard to analyze for me because of my knowledge of spices is narrow.
