3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) Amber-clear; white, creamy but small head. Grape-like nose, white-wineish. Sweet taste with herbal qualities. Bitterish "Belgian" type hops. No more fruity flavours, which I seem to remember. Retronasal a harsh metallic, stannum-like tang. If it weren't for the palate ruined by the metallic taste, medium to quite full bodied. Reasonably refreshing. The beer is quite good, not great. The finish is just awful. I'm pretty sure their modern brewing methods have partially ruined a once great classic.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
While the least impressive of this brand (I like red and blue a bit better) this is by no bad. In fact its quite good and gave me a good buzz. It is like Bass ale in its thickness and sweet sour flavor but much more consistent. Obvousliy this is higher in quality than Bass but there are similarites. I would drink this again and you know what I like it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma has light Belgian qualities, slight fruit hops and banana/clove. Clear yellow color, awesome lacing and a persistent white creamy head. Sweet and salty color, zesty and tangy. I had this one while fighting a bad hangover, so the strong ABV in this made me sick to my stomach, but was still tasty. Clean finish and bready on the palate. Overall a good Belgian whtat reminded me of Lucifer (the beer, not Satan).

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A beautiful sight in the bour, golden and arimatic, with very vibrant carbonation, that is especially entertaining to watch it disperse the yeast throughout. Creamy fizzy head, that lasts and lasts throughout the drink. A faint echo of hops is present, with a floral fruity bouquet that is very refreshing. Very pleasant on the palette, from the flavor and the aroma.

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.

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.
