COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned - 150 cl, 75 cl, and 33 cl bottles. Named Grande Réserve in 75 cl bottles, and Magnum Grande Réserve in 150 cl bottles.
Chimay Blue is principally distinguished by its character of a strong beer. This is a beer whose fragrance of fresh yeast with a light, flowery rosy touch is especially pleasant. Its flavour, noticed when tasting it, only accentuates the pleasant sensations perceived in the aroma , while revealing a light but pleasant touch of roasted malt. This top fermented Trappist beer, refermented in the bottle, is not pasteurised.

Cerveja encorpada, de gosto forte e amarga. Fica melhor quando colocada num copo apropriado, para respirar... Fica mais amarga ainda!

Butelka, warka rozlana rok temu. Piana bardzo wysoka, bialo-kremowa, ale dosc szampanowa i szybko opadajaca (pozostaje warstewka cienka do konca). Piwo prawie nieprzejrzyste, burgundowo-brazowe. Aromaty owocowe (caly stragan, choc z naciskiem na suszone owoce - rodzynki, figi, sliwki, wisnie), slody, drozdze belgijskie, lekki, likierowy alkohol, karmel. Smak slodkawo-kwaskowaty, delikatny, czasami )nie wiem czemu, tylko w niektorych lykach) z lekka, chropowata goryczka. Alkohol w smaku ukryty idealnie. Bardzo wysokie wysycenie, az przeszkadzajace. Na szczescie pokal z grawerem na dnie i poczekanie chwilke zmniejsza problem. Klasa piwo, ale zarazem nie sprostalo troche oczekiwaniom.

A Belgian beer which is soothingly aromatic, divinely tasteful and relaxing to say the least!

La cerveza Chimay Azul, bautizada la Grande Reserve, en botellas de 750 ml, es una oscura cerveza trapense que tiene un aroma potente y un complejo sabor que mejora con los años. Se elaboró por primera vez como una cerveza para la Navidad, lo que explica la presencia de una vendimia. NOTA DE CATA: - Color: Esta auténtica cerveza belga, cuyo tinte de levadura fresca se asocia a un ligero toque de flores rosadas, es particularmente agradable. - Aromas: Su aroma, que se percibe cuando se disfruta de la cerveza, sólo acentúa la agradable sensación que revela el olor; todo desenvuelve un ligero pero agradable toque caramelizado. - Sabor: relativamente seco con un toque de caramelo. - Tipo de espuma: espesa, marrón cremosa. Características: - Graduación alcohólica: 9% de alcohol por volumen - Período de conservación: Se puede guardar por varios años Se sirve idealmente a temperatura de bodega (de 10 a 12°C).

Barwa ciemny brąz z czerwonym, piana średniej wielkości. W aromacie czuć rodzynki, ciemne owoce, lekko alkohol, karmel. W smaku rodzynki, karmel i alkohol - który nie przeszkadza - przyjemnie rozgrzewa przełyk, bardzo przyjemny posmak taki kwiatowy z lekka goryczka. Średnie wysycenie, złożone zbalansowane piwo.

Returning to this after a long absence, and as I thought it might be, not as good as I remember. Has quality gone down, or my palate improved. The aroma is yeasty, and there are still some ice flavours, but it seems a bit thin in the mouth, and slightly over carbonated.

An excellent Trappist beer. Tons of flavours, including malts, dark fruits, brown sugar, candy, spices, and alcohol heat. An incredibly smooth, velvety beer.

Bottle. Pours dark brown with large dissapating frothy white head. Aroma of lightly roasted cereal, caramel, red fruit and spices. Taste more of the same, but the spices fade away giving more space to the rosated aspect. Nice.

DIBBLE (26) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2015
33cl bottle from Tesco. 2014 on label. Poured with a deep off white head that lasted only a few minutes. Deep dark reddish brown beer. Sweet malt aroma. Well carbonated. Acidic peppery crisp bite. Flavour largely malty with subtle caramel sweetness and floral overtones. Fine sediment in base of bottle.
