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.

Piwo o średnio-intensywnym aromacie zbliżonym do czerwonego wina. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźnymi nutami czerwonych owoców i solidną słodyczą na finiszu.

Muito equilibrada, cor carregada com uma espuma creme que se aguenta até ao final. No paladar sobressai um toque de açúcar caramelizado muito agradável. Não se sente os 9% de vol.

Sem dúvida uma das melhores Dark Strong Ale. Aroma intenso e complexo, levemente frutado. Sabor torrado, amargo e muito equilibrado.

BenOver (148) - SLOVENIA - MAR 9, 2015
Pours dark with a lot of head. Smell is strongly sour, strong yeast presence, but some rosy touch can be felt. Strong carbonation at first tickles your tounge, than a strong sour body starts to evolve, but quickly turns in another direction that you would expect and finishes with a gentle roasted taste, with a quite pleasant rose-like aftertaste. An exceptional beer!

Pours a dark brown amber color with a beige head. Nose of dark fruits, spices, brown sugar, banana. Low to medium carvonation. Malty sweet flavour, Alcohol finish. Very good.
