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.

Mild aroma. From from bottle into appropriate chimay tulip glass. Minimal off white head. Dark reddish brown colour. Smooth, malty almost chocolate taste with a very slight spicy "trappist" style flavour and perfect carbonation for this style of beer. Great beer!!

(Drinking date: 15 June 2014) The beer is hazy dark brown with no foam on it. The beer smells really good. Aroma’s of bread, caramel, chocolate and ripe figs and plughms. The taste is also really good. Bitter and sweet. A slightly sweeter aftertaste. The body is a bit full, which is good. However, this beer has a bit too much carbonation for this kind of beer. Overall, this is a delicious beer. Not the best one in his kind, but still really good. That’s why I give it the total score of 4.0

Cerveja escura e muito saborosa. Com alto teor alcoólico, está cerveja é a mais interessante já experimentada.

Surprisingly light on the nose, but great on the tongue. Definite hints of dried fruits, kandi sugar, and a bit if a floral note. Been a long time since I had this, forgot how good it was. Excellent mouthfeel too, quite bubbly - almost sharp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
